It's No Joke! April 1, 2015 is National Walking Day.
March 26, 2015
On Wednesday April 1, we’ll be celebrating National Walking Day with the American Heart Association.

Physical inactivity is a huge national problem. Eighty percent of adults in America don’t get enough physical activity. That’s true for many of us right here at SIMED. And it means we’re at greater risk for heart disease, stroke and other chronic diseases. But we’re not going to take it sitting down.

On April 1, we’ll join millions of men and women across America as they pledge to live a healthier lifestyle and get physically active. Here’s what you can do to join in the celebration:
  • Show your support and wear sneakers to work on April 1.
  • Since you’ll be wearing your sneakers, we challenge you to take a 30-minute walk on April 1 — and keep it up.
  • Visit and use the American Heart Association’s free tips and tools to stay motivated on your walking program and to sign up to participate and raise funds for your community’s Heart Walk.
Don’t forget to mark your calendar for a 30 minute walk on April 1st! We'll see you outside.

The American Diabetes Association Alert Day is the fourth Tuesday in March this year (March 24th, 2015).

These tests can also be conducted at our SIMED Primary Care and at our First Care Urgent Care offices. 

SIMED's Tenley Noone, MD shares some valuable insight on the different types of diabetes and how each one can affect the human body in different ways.

There are different types of Diabetes, but all involve how your body metabolizes sugar.  When you eat sugar your pancreas releases a hormone called insulin. Insulin allows your body to get the sugar out of the blood and into the tissues that need it, like nerves, muscles, and your brain. When your body doesn’t make enough insulin you feel starved for energy and may start craving sugar.
There are several types of Diabetes and each has something to do with insulin and blood glucose, but they’re not all the same and the treatment for each can be different.
  • Type 1 Diabetes is a disorder in which the pancreas stops producing insulin. It used to be called juvenile diabetes. It is sometimes referred to as insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus.
  • Type 2 Diabetes is a disease in which the pancreas can produce insulin. The insulin is either not enough for the amount of energy your body is trying to use, or your body can’t use it effectively and needs help.
  • Gestational Diabetes is diabetes that develops du


SIMED Sleep Center Celebrates Reaccreditation
March 6, 2015
National Sleep Awareness Week is underway (March 2-8), and there’s no better time for the SIMED Sleep Center to announce that it has formally received its second 5-year Accreditation from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine.  This is the result of a thorough process including review of physician and technologist credentials, quality of our diagnostic studies and care of the patient during their stay.

SIMED Sleep Center is also now fully accredited for home testing.  This is an “express” version of the overnight sleep studySIMED Health | Sleep Medicine in which some, but not all, measures are taken to screen patients and determine if future testing and treatment is needed. Under the direction of Galina Bogorodskaya, MD and a core of board certified sleep physicians representing Neurology, Pulmonology and Internal Medicine, SIMED Sleep Center performs diagnostic testing to uncover such diverse ailments as sleep apnea, insomnia, incomplete REM sleep and other parasomnias including talking, walking and getting up to eat or use the restroom.

Medical journals and popular magazines like Men’s Health recently stepped forward to remind physicians and patients alike that untreated sleep disorders can worsen blood pressure, heart ailments, metabolic syndrome and obesity.

We test and care for patients upon referrals from physicians throughout the community as well as those whose employment entails a need to be alert and awake. SIMED Sleep Center teams up with First Care and several local trucking/transportation companies to test and treat professional drivers who move freight, both locally and on the interstate.
