What does Aspen, after the disease title, mean?

And regarding feeling scared, isn't it the same when we're diagnosed with any new disease, until we get used to it? I've been scared to even get diagnosed.

If anyone's elderly and diabetic here, your systolic and diastolic too far apart, diastolic too low, I found out by searching the web, that can be dangerous and there can be a mineral deficiency, magnesium, lost in the urine of some diabetics. OTC supplements are 250 mg, I think, which is 2/3 the daily requirement. Some of it should come from foods, so that's enough.

It's seemed to help me. We also need 750 mg of salt per day. Anyone know how much that is? Half a tsp? I have no idea. I'm no scientist.
