  • Kids' Hearing Aids

Kids with hearing problems are getting an ear full from powerful hearing aids that have as much color as volume. The Triano Hearing Aid by Siemens comes in a great assortment of fun colors for kids. Besides the personalized color, the aids offer 16 channels to pick up sounds. The aids also can be reprogrammed as a child grows or as the hearing changes. An estimated three of every one thousand children has a hearing difficulty that requires treatment.

  • Back Relief

Patients with chronic lower back pain might want to consider this controversial remedy before going under the knife. Researchers at the mayo clinic say patients should consider Opioids. Opioids are pain relievers derived from the opium plant. It's a class of medications that include morphine and there lies the controversy over potential misuse. But the Mayo researchers claim Opioids are underused when it comes to lower back pain.

  • Diabetic Treat 

A chocolate treat is hard to beat, but it's hard to swallow if you're diabetic. A new bar made by carbolite foods gives diabetics a chocolate experience that doesn't come with any uncomfortable digestive upset. The "At Last" bars use a sweetener that is easily digested by the body, and satisfies the sweet tooth. The bars are also low carbohydrate and according to the company support a low glycemic lifestyle. The "At Last" bars are available in a variety of flavors and will be in stores very soon.
