For advanced treatment
of nearsightedness,
go to the place that is...
first.

You've heard about Radial Keratotomy, the brief, in-office procedure that is proven effective in reducing
or eliminating the need for glasses and contact lenses. If that sounds good to you...thinkfirst.
Sinai is the first hospital in the world to perform laser surgery for glaucoma.
Sinai is the first hospital in the world to perform experiments with lasers to correct nearsightedness,
farsightedness and astigmatism.
Sinai is the only hospital in the state of Michigan performing FDA clinical investigations for
excimer laser refractive surgery. This procedure is not yet available to the general public.
However, Radial Keratotomy is available. And it's proven safe and effective in correcting near-
sightedness and astigmatism in over one million cases worldwide.
The point is this: When it comes to advanced procedures like Radial Keratotomy, it is prudent to
go with a proven leader. Your choice is obvious.

Nutrition Information
For Diabetes Month

BEVERLY PRICE SPECIAL TO THE JEWISH NEWS

N

ovember is National
Diabetes Month. Mil-
lions of Americans
have diabetes, while
millions more have the dis-
ease and go undiagnosed.
Everything we eat eventu-
ally turns into sugar. Many
people associate dietary "sug-
ar" with high blood sugar, but
in addition to watching the
amont of simple sugar one
consumes (candy, soda pop),
one must also limit the
amount of fat (butter, meats,
fried foods, cake, ice cream),
as fat is the most concentrat-
ed source of calories and con-
tributes to weight gain very
easily.
Fat is probably worse for a
diabetic than sugar.
Call your physician if dia-
betes runs in your family
and/or you feel you are expe-
riencing some of the follow-
ing symptoms: fatigue,
extreme weight loss for no ap-
parent reason, frequent uri-
nation, excessive thirst.
The Center for Cardiovas-
cular Health at Sinai Hospi-
tal, in conjunction with Home
Medical Equipment & Supply
Co., will be conducting dia-
betes screenings, 11 a.m.-1
p.m. Nov. 1 at the Oak Park
Jewish Community Center
and 1-3 p.m. Nov. 5 at the
West Bloomfield Jewish Corn-
munity Center. Cost is $5 per
person.
The screen will be most ac-
curate if you do not eat for
four to six hours prior to the
test. If you have known dia-
betes, you can make arrange-
ments with Sinai staff to
assist you in your personal
meal plan. The following are
general dietary guidelines for
prevention or control of dia-
betes:
• Avoid
concentrated
sweets such as sugar, soda
pop, fruit juice and candy.
Cake, cookies, ice cream and
pies also need to be avoided
as they are high in fat as well
as sugar.
• Eat three small meals
with small snacks in be-
tween.
• Avoid alcohol.
• Eat foods high in fiber
such as legumes (beams),
lentils, vegetables, fruits and
whole grains such as brown
rice and whole-grain pastas,

breads and cereals.
• Limit your protein intake
by limiting all animal flesh
foods (poultry, fish) to no
more than 4 to 6 ounces dai-
ly.
• Bake, broil, roast, stew,
steam foods. Do not fry.
• Achieve and maintain
ideal body weight.
• Control stress.
• Exercise, with doctor's
permission.
