The risk and reward of blood sugar control goals

DEAR DR. ROACH: I read about a follow-up study on the ACCORD population that showed that after a few years of follow-up, people in the tight blood-sugar-control arm had fewer heart attacks and need for stents. Can you comment on this? I want to know if I should keep my A1c lower. -- S.B.

PIER SHOOTING

"We're here not only for Kate, to keep her memory alive, but to have something done," a shellshocked James Steinle pronounced at a Tuesday news conference on the steps of San Francisco City Hall. On July 1, Steinle, his daughter, Kate, and a friend were taking an evening stroll on Pier 14. Kate Steinle, 32, took a selfie. Moments later, a bullet pierced her aorta. She died in a hospital. The San Francisco district attorney charged an immigrant who was here illegally and who had seven felony convictions and five prior deportations with first-degree murder. Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, who ...

The Inspector General said that "The IRS expects to pay out up to 21 billion dollars in bogus refunds to thieves across the country." Of course, the IRS takes ...

Reasons why dog crates work

DEAR DIDI: I don't understand why people are putting their dogs in a cage these days. We never did that growing up with our dogs. They were perfectly happy outside and now my trainer is recommending that I crate my dog inside to potty train her. How is a cage indoors better than letting her have the entire backyard to run in? - Manteca Dog Owner

DEAR DR. ROACH: Would you mind providing some guidelines for preventing eye strain? I'm a graduate student, so I spend a lot of time reading, both from computer screens and from books. I will always need to read to get things done, but I'd also like my eyes to last me my whole life. -- B.I.
