Welcome to the Show
Good day and welcome to this week’s episode of the Nursing Show podcast for nurses, by nurses. I’m your host Jamie Davis and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for checking out the show this week. First up, in this week’s nursing news items, we’ll look at how helping patients better manage their insulin dependent diabetes in light of recent studies on risks for hypoglycemia.
Then we’ll get in to our special interview segment with Dr. Peter Wade from the Mandell Center for Comprehensive Multiple Sclerosis Care about debunking some common myths about this chronic illness and how to better manage it. We’ll have that and more later in this episode after the news.

Tip of the Week – Lessons Learned About Multiple Sclerosis
Since we just went through the holiday season, we might think about the unique challenges faced by people with chronic illnesses like multiple sclerosis or MS. These patients deal with their illnesses all through the year and part of that is dealing with some of the pervasive myths about MS. The illness is known to have wide ranging effects from mobility issues to cognitive problems. But what everyday things can they do to affect the progression of the illness? I got the chance to chat with Dr. Peter Wade of the Mandell Center for Comprehensive Multiple Sclerosis Care and ask him about the common myths surrounding MS and its care. Check it out.
