Breath analysis is a method for non-invasive tests on the clinical state of an individual by monitoring volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) present in the exhaled breath of humans and animals. Breath gas concentration can then be related to blood concentrations via calculations, for example in blood alcohol and other kinds of testing.
The area of modern breath testing commenced in 1971, when Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling demonstrated that human breath is a complex gas, with over 200 different volatile organic compounds and physicians have used breath analysis since the days of the ancient Greek scientists, now there are some 3,481 compounds in breath exhalation that can be measured and more are being discovered.
Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are made inside the body are released within the human chemical system as a result of certain exposures to chemicals normal metabolic activity or due to disease states. They enter the body and are eventually metabolized or excreted via exhalation, skin emission, urine, sweat, tears, or other body fluids or secretions.
Health care in the US now costs over $2 trillion a year. I believe on a worldwide basis are now in a downward trend in our ability to cover health care costs. Breath sampling is non-invasive and breath samples can be tested frequently due to low cost. Finding of potential disease biomarkers can be obtained by analysis of exhaled breath. There are many applications for medical diagnosis, finding the underlying problems with disease, all allow for therapy and prevention of disease and pre-disease states. With frequent testing, this can allow for monitoring of various treatment options.

Diabetes mellitus is a complex disease requiring extensive strategies for effective management. Self-management of diabetes can be expensive and challenging for low-income patients. Current diabetes education and management programs largely target persons with higher levels of formal education and incomes. Kemper, Savage, Niederbaumer, and Anthony (2005) explored differences in knowledge about diabetes among low-income persons who had varying levels of formal education. The present study proposes to extend Kemper et al.’s study to examine the predictive relationship between diabetes self-management knowledge and level of formal education on depressive symptoms in low-income persons with diabetes mellitus. Results may guide nurses in designing effective diabetic education for low income persons who have varying degrees of depression symptoms and varying degrees of diabetes self-management knowledge.

Juvenile Diabetes Foundation LibraryThis cookbook is aimed at helping “stop heart trouble before it starts” in people with diabetes. That translates to a diet low in saturated fat (less than 10 percent of total calories). In addition, people with diabetes have other dietary challenges to manage, such as restricting sugar intake. If you know you need to make changes, but you’re not ready to switch from ham to tofu, Diabetic Low-Fat and No-Fat Meals in Minutes presents more than 250 modified recipes that fit the lower-saturated-fat requirements, avoid sugar, don’t require major taste changes, and are quick to prepare.

Each recipe includes preparation and cooking time, and the nutritional breakdown includes calories, fat, protein, carbohydrate, cholesterol, and sodium. Additional sections, such as “Top 10 Ways to Cope with Picky Eaters” and “50 Ways to Do Without Sugar and Fat with Herbs, Spices, and Seasonings” make this cookbook even more useful. Author M.J. Smith is a registered dietician who specializes in working with people with diabetes and has written seven other cookbooks. –Joan Price
A chance to step into your child’s shoes. When your child was diagnosed with diabetes your first priority was probably to learn everything you could about diabetes and how to manage it. Whether your child is a youngster or a teenager, you’ve done your best to help with injections, meals and snacks, and the many other elements of a diabetes management program. But through all this, you may be overlooking the importance of your child’s social and emotional development. Children want to be normal, and diabetes makes them “different.” Many well-meaning parents inadvertently focus too much on their child’s diabetes, and not enough on other aspects of their child’s life. This unique book, written by a young woman who was diagnosed with diabetes at age 11, gives you the opportunity to understand and relate to your child’s feelings. Drawing on the author’s own experiences and those of the many children and young adults she’s counseled, this sensitive guide explains:
* How children feel when they’re diagnosed
* Why diabetes is a bigger adjustment for you than for your child
* How to encourage a healthy approach to diabetes
* The importance of diabetes education
* How to make your child’s life as normal as possible
* Dealing with outside forces (school, day care, relatives, etc.)
* Eliminating the power struggle for independence in adolescence
* Books to Fund A Cure * A portion of this book’s proceeds will go to the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation International, a not-for-profit voluntary health agency, whose primary objective is to support and fund research to find the cause, cure, treatment, and prevention of diabetes and its complications. Juvenile Diabetes Foundation Library Health”I am a 21-year-old chiropractic student who has had diabetes for over 10 years,” writes the author, who has been working with children and teenagers with diabetes since she was 15 and founded a camp for young people with diabetes. This slim book is “what children want their parents to know” about dealing with the social and emotional issues of diabetes, a perspective lacking in most books about this condition. For example, “My parents were worried about the long-term impact of diabetes and how it would change my life and my family’s life. I was worried that I wouldn’t [miss] my school field trip.”
McAuliffe teaches parents important concepts like not blaming yourself if your child has diabetes, accepting that your child will have diabetes forever, not transmitting a negative attitude, and letting your child be a “normal” kid. She also teaches strategies for dealing with daily life, such as including siblings in diabetes education and emergency training, educating your child’s teacher and classmates, and giving siblings without diabetes some extra attention. McAuliffe gives no medical advice–plenty of other books do that. She shares from her heart and experience what it was like being a kid with diabetes and how parents can make it easier or more difficult. –Joan Price
