Information technology is poised on the brink of transforming healthcare. IT

Changes in time zone, in the amount and timing of food intake, and in physical activity demand vigilant assessment of metabolic control.

Insulin is stable for ~3 months at room temperature but should be kept as cool as possible.

that have changed the social perception that girls and women not only can, but should
be physically active. With any changing social milieu, there are evolving health issues
associated with the journey.
