Diabetes: - It is well known that 80 -90% of type-two-diabetes patients are overweight. Many people struggle with staying positive about getting healthy, which is why their weight loss attempts fail. Choose an activity enjoyable and easy to perform, in terms of location and cost, which is integrated into the routine. Hypoventilation is accumulation of toxic levels of co2 (the gas we breathe out) in the blood vessels, due to inadequate respiration.

Anyone available for coaching (will pay) regarding switching residency?
Hello SDN residents. I am currently a PGY 1-->2 at a family medicine program in the Western US. It has not been a good fit from the start (my poor multi-tasking skills, toxic learning culture, multiple issues with housing/floods, dog getting cancer, etc). Unfortunately I have not passed my two pediatric rotations. I am now at risk of possible contract non-renewal if I don't pass my current 2 month remediation. I am seeking to find employment options elsewhere as a backup plan should I not... Anyone available for coaching (will pay) regarding switching residency? (Source: Student Doctor Network)
