Monitoring your Vascular Condition
The BioCUFF is a simple way of assessing both your blood pressure condition and your arterial flexibility; plus, you can use the BioCUFF in the comfort of your own home because you simply attach the device to your arm just like an ordinary blood pressure cuff

What does the BioCUFF measure?
The BioCUFF provides a series of metabolic indicators that you can use to improve your lifestyle and so help to prevent the causes of cardiovascular disease. We all know the risks of being overweight, of having high cholestrol or suffering from high blood pressure. We also know how to reduce those risks - by exercising more, not smoking, reducing our alcohol intake and eating a balanced diet
These include:
Diastolic blood pressure
Systolic blood pressure
The heart rate
Vascular condition - which linked to arterial flexibility
Few of us know about the hidden dangers of arterial inflexibility, or how to measure it. This is where the BioCUFF is unique being as it is the first at-home device able of delivering this information to you within minutes

What is arterial flexibility?
The BioCUFF works by evaluating your arterial flexibility, which experts say is one of the most important risk factors when it comes to assessing the likelihood of a heart attack or stroke. Arteries are important because they're responsible for blood flow around your body via your cardiovascular system. To work properly, it's crucial that your arteries are kept healthy

The poorer your vascular condition, the greater your chances of serious health issues
Our arteries usually stiffen with advancing age. This brings with a greater risk of a potentially fatal heart attack, heart failure or stroke

You may not recognise the heart failure symptoms as your arteries begin to stiffen
Unfortunately arterial stiffness can occur without warning. Often there are no symptoms of cardiovascular disease and people don't suspect they are in danger until they suffer an attack. It is important to note that like blood pressure, vascular condition should be monitored over time and not just taken as one reading. The BioCUFF makes this simple by averaging your tests over time and therefore provides a more accurate result. BioCUFF provides reassurance and a vital early warning system that helps you to be aware of changes and will therefore keep your vascular condition in check

BREAST SENSE. BREAST SELF EXAMINATION PACK. Be breast aware. Magnifies fingertip sensitivity. Complete Breast Sense Glove, Educational DVD and Information Booklet. BREAST SENSE. BREAST SELF EXAMINATION PACK. Be breast aware. Magnifies fingertip sensitivity. Complete Breast Sense Glove, Educational DVD and Information Booklet. 50p from each pack is donated to Registered Breast Cancer Charities.

Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer worldwide and accounts for almost one in three of all malignancies in women.

The introduction of mammograms and improved treatments have had positive effects on mortality rates in women aged 50 and above, but despite this, the single most effective way to detect abnormal lumps or irregularities amongst women is still being overlooked - self examination.

And its not just middle aged women who should be paying more attention to their bodies. Kylie Minogue's recent diagnosis has sought to highlight the importance of self examination among younger women and getting to know your breasts by physical examination as well as regular screening is recommended for all women over the age of 20.

Breast checks take just a few minutes, yet many women admit they don't examine their breasts often enough, if at all and many say they are unsure how to.

Now there is a new Breast Self Examination Aid designed specifically to help women overcome any feelings of apprehension and uncertainty by educating and informing them about how, when and why they should check their breasts.
The BREAST SENSE. BREAST SELF EXAMINATION PACK includes an educational DVD which can be viewed in the comfort and privacy of your own home. The film advises women of the important steps and techniques involved in self examination and provides extensive factual information on breast cancer and its detection.

The pack also contains the reusable BREAST SENSE GLOVE for fingertip sensitivity. The BREAST SENSE GLOVE is made from two sealed sheets of extremely thin but strong latex free and hypoallergenic polyurethane containing a silicone based solution.

This greatly reduces friction and increases sensitivity by enabling the glove to glide more easily over the contours of the breast. The unique magnifying sensation of the glove enhances the ability to feel even the smallest changes or irregularities so that any differences can be noticed easily and then be referred to a medical practitioner. An elegant pouch is also supplied in which to store the glove.

Jan Sheppard 60 found her first lump around twelve years ago.

"I found it purely by accident" she explains.

"I was lying in bed and found a lump in my right breast. My immediate reaction was - is it a lump or not? I wasn't entirely sure, so I went to see my GP who then referred me to a consultant at my local hospital. At that appointment they took a sample of fluid from my breast and sent it away to be analysed and I also had a mammogram. To my relief the results came back benign."

Since then Jan has had four more lumps two of which have had to be removed. She is now taking no chances.

"I religiously examine my breasts once a month and recently was introduced to the BREAST SENSE. BREAST SELF EXAMINATION GLOVE which I found amazing" she says.

"I first of all examined my breast as I normally do with my hand. Then using the glove I examined my breasts again and the difference was remarkable. I instantaneously felt the difference and could easily feel the old scar tissue. It felt as though there was a pocket in my breast to insert my hand."

"I cannot stress how important it is to carry out self examinations of your breast once a month" says Jan.

"I have since introduced the glove to my daughter and daughter in law who both agree that the BREAST SENSE. BREAST SELF EXAMINATION GLOVE makes self examination far more positive".

What is Diabetes?
Diabetes is a condition where too much Glucose (Sugar) is present in the blood. As yet, it is incurable but can be managed effectively through diet and treatment. It is also known as Diabetes Mellitus.

Causes of Diabetes
Diabetes occurs when the body cannot control the amount of Glucose either because the body does not produce sufficient Insulin (type 1) or because it develops a resistance to the Insulin, making it ineffective (type 2).

It is thought that there is a relationship between lifestyle and type 2 Diabetes as it is most common in people who are overweight and do not take regular exercise.

Gestational Diabetes is caused by the hormonal changes which take place during pregnancy and will usually disappear after birth.

Treatment of Diabetes
Diabetes is currently incurable but can be treated effectively to control sugar levels to manage and reduce symptoms. Treatment for Diabetes varies however, depending on personal health and whether it is type 1 or type 2 diabetes.

For type 1, a controlled diet is important to eliminate symptoms and control sugar levels. Regular Insulin injections will also be given in place of what the body is not producing.

For type 2, primary treatment is diet control. If this is not enough to manage the condition then medication or insulin may be needed. Lifestyle factors are also important so you should maintain a diet low in sugar, fat and salt, as well as taking regular exercise, quit smoking if you are a smoker and maintain a healthy weight. This will help prevent complications of the condition such as heart disease.
