Septum piercing and healing time

Are you thinking of having a septum piercing? Wondering what is the healing time? You can be sure that every such procedure takes time and your body will need to heal. Septum piercing healing time may vary, but it usually takes about 4-6 weeks for the wound to completely heal.

Make no mistake that healing time is influenced by many factors, including your overall health, your hygiene and your ability to take care of the septum.

Healing time and pain level

Septum piercings should be made thru sweet spot, a soft spot in your nose. This procedure is usually painful and requires quite a lot of courage to do it. Read more about septum piercing pain on

Never underestimate the level of pain and always expect a healing time of about 4-6 weeks. In some cases healing time can be as low as 2-3 weeks, but that really depends on the individual alone.

In case that your septum piercing did not go as planned and something went wrong it is advised that you should wait at least 1 month before attempting to do septum piercing again. Always look for a reputable piercer, otherwise you risk your own health and you really should not do that for a cheap price. Septum piercing is not that costly.

Actual healing time

Actual healing time will vary between 2-6 weeks, depending on many factors. Notify your personal doctor before attempting this procedure as your doctor might have some comments for you. For some people septum piercing can be pretty dangerous if not done properly. It was said before that certain complications may arise and they are certainly not pleasant. If you have some other health issues you really need to consult your personal doctor.

Level of pain is really something relative. Some might stand stronger pain before it is too much, some people really cannot stand even the slightest form of pain. So saying that septum piercing hurts automatically is not fair.

measuring glucose

If your Blood Glucose is higher than 140 mg/dl, take the following steps to bring it down yourself before calling your doctor using the guidelines given above:

1. Wash your hands very well, dry very well. If necessary, use alcohol to clean the site and re-check your blood glucose with your monitor.

2. If the results are still above 140 mg/dl AND you have no problems with your heart or kidneys, drink 32 oz. of water in the next 30 minutes.

3. During that same 30 minutes, be as active as your body will let you…walk, jog, run, if you are able. If you have other health problems that prohibit those things, then sit or lie down and move all the joints that you can through their entire range of motion as many times as you can in that length of time.

4. At the end of the 30 – 35 minutes of activity, stop being active. Rest, relax, catch your breathe for about 20 minutes.

5. Re-check your blood glucose and be prepared to be amazed at the dramatic drop in your blood glucose. (from 25 – 100 mg/dl — depending on how vigorous your activity was.)

6. Wait 2 hours. During that 2 hours you may drink any calorie-free liquids, but do not eat anything with calories.

7. Re-check your blood glucose. If it has gone back up, repeat from step 2. If it has continued to stay in an acceptable range, then, resume your normal activities and meal pattern. Be sure to check your BG at least 4 times over the next 24 hours!

Be sure that your blood sugar levels are not too low, or you risk hypoglycaemia.

Reactive Hypoglycemia – Recognizing and Treating Low Blood Sugar

Have you ever gone through a period of feeling nervous, confused, dizzy or just couldn’t sleep? There’s a chance that you may have undergone the symptoms of reactive hypoglycemia (also known as idiopathic reactive hypoglycemia). What you’re about to learn is what it is, how you can recognize and treat these symptoms safely on your own.

What is Reactive Hypoglycemia

While hypoglycemia usually occurs in diabetics, many non-diabetics have these symptoms as well. Reactive hypoglycemia is a low blood sugar “reaction”. An example of this is your blood sugar dropping after a meal. Refer to blood sugar levels chart for additional information.

While this is typical, it becomes a problem when you blood sugar drops down below a certain threshold and you begin to experience symptoms which can disrupt your every day activities.

Recognizing the Symptoms

Some symptoms of reactive hypoglycemia include and are not limited to: dizziness, nervousness, shakiness, sleeplessness, confusion, hungriness, and also sweating. Most people within there lifetimes have experienced at least several of these symptoms.

So what sets you apart from a person experiencing reactive hypoglycemia? You think that a doctor could tell the difference. However, it’s pretty tough since most people will see a doctor when they are not going through those symptoms while at there doctor visit.

One way you can tell is by monitoring yourself. Do you undergo these symptoms after a special event in your daily life? Is your blood sugar really low? If you really want to know, you can purchase a glucose meter to track your blood sugar levels. If you’re blood sugar level is below 70 mg/dl, this should be a concern to you.

You’ll want to consult a physician and let them know what you’ve found. Time of day of the reaction and meal times are important to keep track of as well. Do keep in mind that people may have symptoms of reactive hypoglycemia even if there blood sugar levels are above 70 mg/dl.

Treating Reactive Hypoglycemia

When your blood sugar levels are low, consume or eat 15 mg of carbohydrates to give you blood glucose a boost. After 15 minutes, check you glucose levels to see if it is above 70 mg/dl. Keeping a balance is important. If your blood glucose levels are too low or too high, it is at an abnormal state. For some cases natural herbs can be a very effective treatment too. Angelica archangelica is known for its healing effects and has been around for some time.

If you want to prevent reactive hypoglycemia, try staying away from foods which can spike up your blood sugar levels. So you’ll want to stay away from or limit foods with processed sugars and/or carbohydrates. Eating in moderation, eating healthy, and keeping up an active lifestyle will help you in the long term.

Lack of diabetes type 1 awareness

This question speaks to the lack of type 1 diabetes awareness that the online and offline diabetes communities are already well aware of. The more I learn about type 1 diabetes the more I begin to appreciate

Nick’s realization that sometimes you need to alter your perspective and routine to allow progress and growth (if you haven’t read his blog post “Making Peace with Vulnerability”, I highly recommend doing so). Nick talks about finding yourself in a rut and realizing that you need to make some changes in order to grow and be healthier. It’s not necessarily that what you were doing before was wrong, but that there is room for improvement. Going back to my lifeguarding example, it’s not the education that we receive is ineffective or incorrect, but that there is more that could be added to the curriculum to make us even better lifeguards and more prepared for any situation we may find ourselves in.

Similarly, it’s not that the diabetes charities are wrong (on the contrary, they are doing some very important work and are skilled at bringing the community together and rallying support), but that there is room for improvement. Donor contributions can be even more effective if they are used towards projects that align with donor intentions and fundraising messaging.

The JDCA is working to study the operations of these charities in order to identify the obstacles that stand in the way of a cure and encourage both the charities and donors to focus on projects that are working toward a Practical Cure.

The JDCA’s mission is “to direct donor contributions to the charitable organizations that most effectively fund research with the goal of delivering a type 1 Practical Cure by 2025.”

I think that says it all- we believe these organizations are the best equipped to accelerate the development of a cure. Our research and analysis is intended to help show a different perspective to encourage progress and growth toward the goal of a cure.

Just like Nick’s personal experiences and my reflection on training as a lifeguard, there is always room for improvement; you just need to be open to modifying your perspective.

When my old omnipod became famous

The powerful antioxidant pycnogenol can indeed significantly help in improving heart health, researchers found in a recent study.

Pine tree

The extract, which comes from the bark of a coastal European pine tree, has been shown in other studies to be effective in treating symptoms of menopause, high cholesterol, and damage to the heart from high blood pressure. In according to this, several health benefits with diabetes has also been proven. It is proven that blood sugar levels can be decreased with this methods.

But Swiss researchers wanted to look more closely at the extent of pycnogenol’s healing properties. What they found was a 32% improvement in blood flow in the patients they tested who had heart disease. The indicators that showed oxidative stress and free radical damage were lower when those patients took 200 mg of pycnogenol a day.


Studies had already shown that this powerful compound had the protective antioxidants that fought against oxidation in the body and free radical cells. In the Swiss study, the researchers randomly assigned 23 patients with heart disease either 200 mg daily of pycnogenol or a placebo for 8 weeks. After a two-week period of taking neither, the patients switched what they were taking for another 8 weeks and were tested again at the end.

The new research confirmed and extended previous studies that showed that pycnogenol worked very well. One study showed participants’ levels of “bad” cholesterol dropped by 10% after taking pycnogenol. Yet another showed the compound reducing damage to the heart caused by high blood pressure.

As we reported on our sister site, sailors knew 400 years ago that drinking tea made from the bark containing pycnogenol helped them recover from scurvy, a vitamin C deficiency. The extract has been used in more modern times to cool off menopausal symptoms like hot flashes, night sweats, and insomnia.

Pycnogenol is full of anti-oxidants and proanthocyanidins, the agents best known in red wine and grape juice as protectors against heart disease.
