November is Diabetes Awareness month. We will be sharing information with you all month. There are a few different tests used to diagnosis Diabetes. We will focus on the Hemoglobin A1C or just A1C. This is a blood test where blood is drawn for evaluation. You donโ€™t have to fast for this test. This blood test looks at your average blood glucose (sugar) levels over the past 3 months. The normal level for the A1C is less than 5.7. You are considered a Diabetic if your A1C is 6.5 or higher.

Bible Center Health Fair today in Homewood. Blood pressure (BP) readings measures the force of blood flowing through your vessels. Normal BP is less than 120/80. (American Heart Assoc.). High BP stage 1 starts at readings between 130-139/ 80-89. (American Heart Assoc.). High BP is also called The Silent Killer because the most times there are no obvious symptoms so you can walk around day to day without a sign or symptom to cue you your pressure is high. Follow @pittsburghaha for more info on how to manage your blood pressure.

Common Flu Side Effects.... Some people report having mild reactions to flu vaccination. The most common side effects from flu shots are soreness, redness, tenderness or swelling where the shot was given. Other symptoms that may occur includes Low-grade fever, headache, nausea and muscle aches. These symptoms last 1-2 days and usually resolve on their own. Tylenol can help also. These symptoms are normal. It is your bodyโ€™s response to the vaccine while it is working to build your immunity. -www.cdc.gov. #beinformed #nurselife #fluseason #coldandfluseason #PBNIA #NBNA #patienteducation

This week is National Week of Non-violence. #MeToo is raising awareness of those directly impacted by sexual assault or violence. Sexual assault happens to males, females, transgenders, young, old, civilian or military. It is more common than suspected because most cases go unreported. It is usually hard to predict an assault but there are some tactics that could help reduce your risk. #BW4PC #bw4pc #NBNA #PBNIA #M E T O O #Metoo #nonviolence #sexualassault #beawareofyoursurroundings #beaware #it'snotyourfault #valueyourself #valueothers
