I know quite a few people who use energy drinks like Redbull, Rockstar, and 5-Hour Energy. Are these safe to use on a regular basis?

In each of these energy drinks caffeine is the primary stimulant ingredient. Redbull contains 80 MG of caffeine, 5 Hour Energy contains 100 MG of caffeine, and some kinds of Rockstar contain over 300 MG of caffeine. Most healthy adults can safely consume up to 400 MG of caffeine per day which is equivalent to approximately three 8-ounce cups of coffee. It is advised to consult with your physician before making changes to your supplement regimen.

 

I recently saw an advertisement on television for diabetes supplies that mentioned a “bloodless” glucose monitor. Is it better than my current monitor that requires blood from a finger stick?

Currently there are no bloodless glucose monitors on the market. The alternatives to finger stick glucose meters still require blood from your arm or another site. These alternate site meters are not as accurate as the fingerstick meters during times when blood sugars are changing such as after eating, after exercise, or during a hypoglycemic episode.
