Doctors who treat diabetics are divided over new court-enforced guidelines for diabetes care at three Delaware County nursing homes. Some say they're just right; others say they don't go far enough. But they agree on one thing: Care for diabetic residents in nursing homes - those with stellar reputations as well as problematic ones - needs to improve. "A diabetic in a nursing home has a much greater chance of being admitted to a hospital with a diabetic problem than someone not in a nursing home," said Mayer B. Davidson, an endocrinologist and president of the American Diabetes Association.

The school bus had broken down and was idled by the side of the road. As Sharon Sidorick, chaperone of her daughter Brianna's fourth-grade class trip to the Trenton Museum, waited for the bus to be fixed, she noticed Brianna take a drink of water, and another and another. Brianna hadn't been herself for a while. She seemed constantly tired, but wasn't that to be expected from a 10-year-old who spent her spare time practicing the trumpet, playing soccer and performing jazz and ballet routines in dance recitals?

What makes you eat? According to a study in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association, individuals can identify what sets them up to overeat by looking at their eating behavior. That includes what, for them, is a cue to eat, how they eat, and what the consequences and rewards there are for eating. The study recommends using a successful dieter as a model and deciding in advance what to do in "high-risk" situations: negative moods, interpersonal conflicts and social pressures.

RONNIE Polaneczky's March 30 column ("Taken to the Cleaners") was a distortion of a case in which years of illegal dumping of hazardous materials by a small business was uncovered by a SEPTA construction project. Debonair Dry Cleaners, 60th and Market, was cited by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection for illegally dumping hazardous residue from the cleaning process in the ground beneath and around its property. As a result of the volume of this dumping, over years, the foundation of the building was undermined.

WASHINGTON - The Food and Drug Administration is cracking down on more than a dozen companies that market illegal diabetes treatments, ranging from bogus dietary supplements to prescription drugs sold online without a prescription. The products aim to cash in on the country's diabetes epidemic, which affects nearly 26 million Americans. Regulators worry that consumers who buy such unapproved products could put off getting legitimate medical care. The FDA sent warning letters to 15 companies, here and abroad, ordering them to stop selling diabetes treatments that violate U.S. drug laws.
