Couple of minutes later, I saw a bruise on the side of his eye,” Flaviane told Fox News.</span><br /><br /><span>“So I felt there was something really wrong.”</span><br /><br /><span>The waitress panicked and scribbled on a note: “Do you need help?

"We're not going to survive": Aussie couple stuck in extended quarantine speak out

<p>A couple stuck in hotel quarantine beyond the expected 14-day requirement say they understand why the system has been put in place but they would at least like some fresh air and empathy after being stuck in a room with no balcony.</p> <p>Geoff and Karen Crooks are having to remain in hotel quarantine for a further two weeks after the extremely contagious UK strain of coronavirus spread at the Grand Chancellor Hotel in Brisbane.</p> <p>"We're not going to survive in this room for another 14 days," Mr Crooks told<span> </span><em>A Current Affair</em><span> </span>host Leila McKinnon.</p> <p>Mr Crooks was unable to attend his brother's funeral due to the quarantine directive and said it hasn't been easy due to the lack of help and him waiting all day to see a nurse.</p> <p>"Understand what issues we're having," he said.</p> <p>Mrs Crooks said the news they would have to remain in quarantine for an extra two weeks was broken to them by police just over an hour before they were scheduled to leave, which wasn't easy to hear.</p> <p>But their issue is not with hotel quarantine, they just want it to be more comfortable.</p> <p>"I doubt very much whether the premier of Queensland has even talked to anybody who's gone through quarantine and understands just the circumstances you've got to stay in. This room is 10 paces across," Mr Crooks said.</p> <p>Mr Cooks has now been tested five times, with all tests coming back as negative, including a pre-travel test which was done in the US and a test he requested because of sinus issues while in quarantine.</p> <p>He said he was surprised more wasn't done earlier as the severity of the UK strain has been known for quite a while.</p> <p>"It was three levels above us, six days before that we knew about it," Mr Crooks said.</p> <p>While the couple knows they won't be let out soon, and they don't expect to be, they do want others to know that they aren't sitting by the pool drinking cocktails.</p> <p>"We were prepared to do quarantine, we knew all about it, we've done our homework, that's part of the system. (But) it's about doing it again (and) making sure the facility was better than the last time, have some compassion," Mr Crooks said.</p> <p>He said their new room is smaller than their first and now had no balcony.</p> <p>He would like Ms Palaszczuk to give people a call and talk to them to understand the issues with the rooms, which he said were designed for a one-to-two night stay, not for two or four weeks of quarantine.</p> <p>Mrs Crooks said it was lucky she and her husband get on, but she feels for those doing it on their own.</p> <p>The couple said an online quarantine community has helped during their stay.</p> <p>"We would just like to say thank you to all those guys supporting us because there's a heap of people in our position," Mr Crooks said.</p>

New study reveals how to reverse type 2 diabetes

<p>A new study suggests that type 2 diabetes can be reversed through a short-term low carbohydrate diet.</p> <p>CSIRO conducted research with labs across the world and discovered a dietary pattern that is lower in carbohydrates and higher in protein and healthy fats is actually more effective for improving your blood glucose management.</p> <p>They analysed 23 published clinical trials from around the world, which compared low-carb diets to mostly low-fat control diets.</p> <p>Patients who were careful about the number of carbs they consumed were more likely to drive their diabetes into remission without adverse effects, they were also able to achieve a higher amount of weight loss after six months.</p> <p><img style="width: 500px; height: 280.8417997097242px;" src="https://oversixtydev.blob.core.windows.net/media/7839505/screen-shot-2021-01-15-at-21953-pm.png" alt="" data-udi="umb://media/e3b24e41b7514401b391f40cd308680b" /></p> <p>George Inatey decided to cut out carbohydrates from his diet, and he claims he is now a new man.</p> <p>Within six months the type 2 diabetic went from weighing over 100kg down to 62kg.</p> <p>He also no longer requires several insulin injections a day to control his diabetes.</p> <p>His blood pressure and cholesterol have also improved.</p> <p>"It was the most liberating thing I've done in my life in 40 years," he told 9News.</p> <p>Researchers say most of the benefits went away after 12 months, which could be due to the intensity and challenges of maintaining a strict diet.</p> <p>It's an option people should consider but in consultation with a health professional.</p>

Baby suffers horrifying side effects from steroid cream

<p>A mum has been left horrified after her baby doubled in size and grew hair on her face from a steroid cream she was given to treat dry skin.</p> <p>The parents sought medical treatment for the five-month-old girl after she ballooned to 11 kilograms.</p> <p>Doctors ran a number of tests after the young girl was rushed to the hospital in China to find out exactly what was causing the weight gain.</p> <p>Medics said they were taken aback when the parents revealed the only food she was consuming was her mother's breast milk, which was tested and found to be normal.</p> <p>The problem was becoming increasingly worse a month later, despite doctors asking the parents to reduce the child's food intake.</p> <p>She had swelled to double her size and grown dark hair on her forehead and cheeks.</p> <p>After another visit to the hospital, the baby was taken to a specialist unit where a nurse noted that four other babies had been suffering from the same symptoms.</p> <p>When the mother was asked if she had applied any creams on her daughter, she responded with "Yifulin", the cream she had been using to treat her daughter's dry skin.</p> <p>After examining the product, they realised it contained 30mg of clobetasol propionate, which doctors say should only be used for a short amount of time.</p> <p>The five-month-old was using the product for a minimum of two months before the side effects began to take place.</p> <p>The lotion has since been removed from shelves in China after other parents came forward to complain about its side effects.</p> <p>According to the doctors treating the baby girl will be difficult and the hair growth may take several years to fall out.</p>
