4Hinton News:Tues. July 3, 1979 d 4 Never Hestitate To Consult Physician No disease is too grown up for children. For this reason, parents should never hesitate to consult a physician to matter how unlikely their symptoms or complaints. That is the sage advice giv- en in the July issue of Harp- er's Bazaar in an article that spells out the variety of dis- eases, ordinarily associated with adults, that actually aff- lict the young. Hypertension. Arthritis, Can- cer. Metabolic diseases, includ- ing diabetes. Alcoholism. Dep- ression. The list goes on and on. "I wouldn't really regard any- thing as an 'adult disease', says pediatrician Muriel Kowlessar of the Medical College of Penn. sylvania. "Doctors and parents alike must be alert of all types of health disorders in children. Otherwise problems of misdiag- nares can happen." Even infants are among the 2,000 children suffering from juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. The cause is unknown, but it is believed triggered by a virus or abnormal immune reaction. Every child known to have the disease should be examined by an eye specialist every six months, for a complication in one out of 10 cases is an eye disorder that can lead to cat. aracts. Cancer is the Number 2 kill- er of children, ranking only behind accidental deaths. Thanks to strides in chemoth:" erapy, the survival rate for acute leukemia has been climb- ing. Since cancer is most treat- able in the early stages, per. ents should consult the doctor quickly when unexplained fev. or, double vision and other sy- mptoms appear. Current studies show thai one- third of our high school pupils drink regularly, with many starting at 12 and 13. 'Early symptoms are wide sw- ings of emotions, undue exhil- aration, depression, silence, le- thargy and sleepiness. "The way to prevent drink- ing problems in children is for parents to set a good example themselves," said Harper's Bazaar. And on the wide spect- rum of disease, this advice : "Any abnormal signs, no matt- er how unlikely they seem, should be discussed with a physician. For children are peo- ple, and people have all types of ailments - not just sore throats and chickenpox." Session Held Don't expect braces and oral surgery to repair your marr- iage. That was one sidelight of a two- day scientific session here for orthodontists and oral surg- eons from throughout the state. Two Ft. Worth. Texas doctors who were the main speakers passed along this advice. They were Dr. Bruce N. Epker, an oral surgeon, and Dr. Leward C. Fish, an orthodontist. "Some patients come in hop- ing that getting their teeth straightened and correcting their facial disharmony will save their marriage. Others Impe it will get them a better job, or make everyone sudden- them," Dr. Fish said. . "That is more than any dental specialist can do," said Dr. Epker. "We tell them to get those things worked out and then come back to us for treat- ment. We can work near mir- acles with a person's bite and facial appearance, but- we can't fix a broken marriage." Surprisingly, some patients don't really care about correct- ing their facial disharmony. "Even though we know we can improve their looks drama- tically while lining up their bite, " said Dr. Fish, "'some pat- ients think they look fine with, say, a receding chin or a pro- trudmg lower lip." In cases like that, the two dental specialists try just to align the teeth so that they close right. Usually, though, patients who are recommended for both br- aces and oral surgery fall into two categories -- those who know exactly what facial short- comings they want changed and those who just hope for the best. "Even though we know ex- actly what is required to bring these patmnts into facial har- mony, it is important to get them to talk about what they hope to achieve from the treat- sent," said Dr. Epker. "After all, our idea of what will make Both doctors said there's a third category: those who would rather be out fishing. "We don't try to change their minds," Dr. Fish said. Oral surgery is recommended for patients whose jaws have grown so much ( or so little) that just putting on braces is not likely to bring their teeth back into line. This is particularly true in adult patients where the jaw growth is complete. It is very effective in treat- ing open bite - a situation where the front teeth don't meet at all when the bite is closed. One patient described it as "biting down on a sandwich and getting nothing but the bread ." "Five or six years ago," said Dr. Fish, "we hated to see an open bite case because we didn't known much about orth- odontic and oral surgery team- work. "Now", he added, "we 'r  glad to see such patients be cause we know we can help them." Using sketches from orthod- ontic x-rays, the two doctors determine the ideal relationship of the teeth. Then, Dr. Epker plans the surgery by first per. forming it on models of the patient's teeth. In a relatively few minutes in the operating room, the teeth can be brought significantly closer to the ideal position. Also, facial deformities are correct- ed. When the surgery heals, the orthodonist "fine tunes" the bite with braces until it is correct. Dr. Fish said that, when oral surgery is performed, usually the braces do not have to be worn as long. "Frequently," he noted, " a patient's medical insurance will cover 80 per cent of the oral surgery where facial deformity is involved." Increasingly, there is insurance coverage for part of the orthodontic fee, too. Orthodontics and oral surgery : together they can align your them look beter may not be bite and bring facial harmony, their idea at all. That can lead but they can't insure your mar- to a bad situation after the riage or popularity. N o-Fault Insurance Since no-fault auto insurance became a reality in Massach- usetts in 1971, 23 additional states have adopted some form of no- fault insurance. In a no- fault state, motorists involved in an accident collect their med- ical expenses and lost income from their own insurance cam- pony, rather than collecting from the insurer of the at- fault driver. In most no- fault states a person injured by another per- son in an auto accident cannot sue unless he or she sustains certain defined injuries or in- curs a certain level of medical expenses. This limitation on the ability to sue eliminates small claims and helps offset the cost of providing the no- fault bene- fits previously mentioned. As is true with any new and untried concept, experience un- der the many different no- fault laws in various states showed that many of them could be improved over what was initial- ly enacted. Two states which have recently reformed their no- fault insurance laws are Florida and New York. In each instance, the improvemt was a benefit to both comumer and Insurer, and as a result of these reforms, Allstate is currently paying a dividend to its auto policyholders in FloMda an New York. In New York, the company's dividend is 5 percent of the bodily injury and par- sonal injury protectlun prem- ium while in Florida it is I0 percent of its bodily injury remlum. "These dividan m..made pouible by changes in New York's and Florida's immrance laws that significantly impact our profit picture in tlume st- ates," said an Allstate spoke- sperson. In December 1977, New York instituted a fee schedule of medical services Indicating payments for verions medical procedure, as well as a verbal threshold which permits law- suits only under certain cir- cumstances. That move elimin- ated many of the suits assoc- iated with New York's former no- fault laws. For the first time in several years, Allstate has Pest Identification made an underwriting prefift its automobile busin in t state. Allstate's total returnS@ its New York policyholders: _wil amount to approximately-l mill-ion. "Much credit for fltli dividend siould be given to i hi- partisan efforts made in N York to reform insurance la particularly the state no- fBl law," commented the Allate spokesparson. Florida also made changes in its no- fault insurance law in -1976, 1977 and 1979. These 'b. angm had a significant offoet oD Allstate's profit picture in t/9 state. Allsteate's return to-ltS poacyhold in Florida in ! will amount to appronimat. $2.5 million. Allstate also uced Florida rates by $2.8 n . ion in 1978 and has not r creased rates in more three years. "Our profit p. ure has improved, so our I icyholders will benefit," :i Allstate spokesperson added.!-" Changes in the no- fault:ji, surance laws have helped duce costly and unnecemy litigation and have helped tain escalating medical co0t. I)ividund returns to policyl ers are an indication of can result from approprib ,legislative reform. -;:. Parker Mr. and Mrs. Joe Thomas Parker are living in Texarkana, Tex., after their wedding in the First Baptist Church in Tex- arkana.

New 00[)fficers Have you ever found an in- sect around your house or gar- den and wondered what it is, or if it's harmful? There are a number of insects present in West Virginia this time of year. The majority are quite comm- on to most of us, but occas- ionally you run across an in- sect that you've never seen before. When we find a strange insect we usually have many questions about it. According to Agriculture Commissioner Gum R. Douglass, the Pest Identi- fication Laboratory was estab- lished by the West Virginia Department of Agriculture to answer your questions about insects and to make recom- mendations for treatment or control. The Pest Identification Lab- oratory is part of the Plant Pest Control Division of the West Virginia Department of Agric- ulture and is located at new headquarters at Guthrie Agric- ultural Center. It is staffed by entomologists who examine and identify insect specunens sent to them. They also make rec- ommendations on methods of controlling various insects. Last year, the lab handled 418 in. sect or insect-related problems. Hosvital Notes. Summers County Hospital June 26, 1979 Admitted Berta Hoffman, Damosel Betty Vest, Jumping Branch; Marcia Harris, Mead- ow Bridge; Emma Harford, Margaret Wiseman, both of Hinton; Euaia Plumley, Abraham. Dismissed: Delphia Caius, Mary Burdette, both of Sand- stone; Levi McBride, True; William Gaul, Christopher Cy- rus, Charles Harford, all of Hinton; Alfred Ramsey, Pipe- stem; Alma Dillon, Union; San- dra Morgan, Ronceverete. They also received 991 phone calls on insect problems. To submit an insect for id- entification, the entomologists at the lab request that you place all insects, except mo- ths and butterflies, in a bottle of alcohol and then pack it sse. urely hi a box for mailing. Moths and butterflies should be packed between layers of cotton in a sturdy box. Speeime should be mailed to: Pest Identification Laboratory Plant Pest Control Division, W.Va. Department of Agricult- ure, Charleston, West Virginia 25305. The Pest Identification Lab- oratory is usually very prompt in dealing with identification problems. They try to process specimens the same day they receive them. However, they are quite busy this time of the year; thus, Rmay take two to three weeks for an individual to receive an answer. H the lab gets a specimen they cannot identify, they wfll. forward it  to the National insoct Musem :. in Washington, D.C. for analysis. In this case, it could take as long as six months to receive an answor. The famll]-of Charle-s l.
