Paula Deen Diabetes Rumors Say She Will Reveal Diagnosis, Drug Endorsement [Updated]

Commented Jan 13, 2012 at 13:30:19 in Home

“I have no idea who Paula Dean is, secondly so what , she has diabetes. She has to "announce" this to the world ?
Millions of others have diabetes, Type 1 or 2. What makes her special.
Must have been hard up for news here.”

Bgrngod on Jan 13, 2012 at 14:14:03

“Not having answers to the rest of your questions is a direct result of not having an answer to your first question. Why click on the article, and not bother reading it, if you have no idea who she is?

Revealing she has diabetes is the same as the Marlboro man revealing he had lung cancer.”

“The rider on that bill had NOTHING to do with benefits. It is cutting the reimbursement to physicians. The end result is that either the patients will be billed over the amount that medicare pays or what is happenng now: fewer and fewer MDs are participating in Medicare.
Eventually if the repub get their way, all you people here with aging parents will then be financially responsible for their health care bills along with own medical bills and your student loan bills and everything else. So how will that work for ya !!
Think 5 minutes ahead, you know it alls, that'll be your life. Unless of course you choose to throw your parents to the wolves.”

“I can't believe their are so many ignorant people here. It is perfectly OK to order your drugs from CAnada or wherever. No ONE is prosecuted for this. Half of my physicians patients get their drugs from Canada. Dr.'s office faxes the prescription to them or you can fax the prescription there. If you aren't computer literate find someone who is to help you to research what you need. I 've been getting medications from Canada for at least 6 years as have 1/2 the people I know. I have one Rx I get from Canada ( the BRAND name )U. S company same as here. I pay $119 for 3 mos. prescription. Here it is $123 for ONE month. Same exact thing.
BTW I just retired as an ICU nurse for 40 years. I know drugs.
All it takes is a little research folks. No one confiscates your meds or prosecutes you for anything.
Geez.”

Retirement will be sleeping bags and bread lines. I kid you not.
And to the person who said they were a nurse at 70. Believe me I don't want a 70 year old nurse old making health decisions for me in any hospital. (think about it. )
I worked as an RN in ICU for 35. And in Home Health for 10. I've had it.

“Well just think what it'll be like when all the young conservatives vote for vouchers to enroll in private insurance to replace Medicare.
No senior will be able to get health coverage in the private market. Then it's the kids responsibility to pay their medical bills. How's that going to work for you, but these young kids who are against any entitlements can't think that far ahead. Typical.
Or they don't have a problem with just throwing their parents to the wolves.”

“>

Oh yes we are so blessed to live in a country anxious and willing to go to war and kill millions of innocents at the drop of a hat. We are a warring nation, with a huge military industrial complex that brings in billions of dollars and also costs us trillions of dollars. Pretty soon the military will be the employer of necessity as real jobs and affordable education continue to be more unattainable.
So take your current Masters or Doctorate degree , grab a gun and join the army. And we'll all celebrate war.”

“As an RN who has worked in Transplant Units, I agree, this is the right choice. If kidneys were available as needed, another story, but one has to make decisions, realistically, not through emotions. There are thousands of others needing organs, who have a chance of a normal , long life.
Give this little girl the best life she can have now, a transplant requires lifelong treatment, difficult enough in a healthy person. Life choices aren't always easy . Certainly we can understand the quandry, but to use a rare kidney in a child with all this against her just starting off, is denying life to another child, with a chance for a long, productive life, in my opinion, is not the right one.”
