Donate to #Pumps4kids Campaign – @BSCorg

Quoted from BSC Kuwait page:

“The Pumps 4 Kids campaign is under the umbrella of the Kuwaiti Red Crescent Society in association with the Dasman Diabetes Institute to raise funds to provide insulin pumps for children with type 1 diabetes in Kuwait.

This form of therapy has numerous advantages relative to other forms of treatment; however due to it’s high cost only 10% of children in Kuwait have access to insulin pumps. Kuwait has the seventh highest incidence rates of type 1 diabetes in children under the age of 14, which highlights the importance of this cause. The funds raised by the Kuwaiti Red Crescent Society will be provided to the Dasman Diabetes Institute to purchase the insulin pumps. It will then provide the insulin pumps to children, and offer them both training and on-going support to adjust to this new form of therapy.

Insulin Pumps can go a long way towards protecting Diabetic children from the physical and emotional suffering caused by 1,460 insulin injections every year. Please donate to help us give Diabetic children back their childhood.”

Having hips and thighs ‘is healthy’

Carrying extra weight on your hips, bum and thighs is good for your health, protecting against heart and metabolic problems, UK experts have said.

Hip fat mops up harmful fatty acids and contains an anti-inflammatory agent that stops arteries clogging, they say.

Big behinds are preferable to extra fat around the waistline, which gives no such protection, the Oxford team said.

Science could look to deliberately increase hip fat, they told the International Journal of Obesity.

And in the future, doctors might prescribe ways to redistribute body fat to the hips to protect against cardiovascular and metabolic diseases such as diabetes. in an ideal world, the more fat around the thighs the better – as long as the tummy stays slim.”
