Your advice to adopted kids who have written about this has always been, "Forge! it -- leave well enough alone," or words lo that effect. still believe your advice is right? In the past you have admitted you were wrong on occasion and 1 always admired you for b.iving the courage to do so. How about switching sides on this issue? -Heading In Koanokc Dear It. in K.: There's a big difference between Hod THE FAMILY CIRCUS McKuen, a middle-aged adult trying to find his father, and a teenager who is angry (or bored) with adoptive parents and has fantasies about locating a brand new set of relatives who arc more attractive, wealthier, "more understanding" or what have you. It is a mailer of record thai when a molhei 1 who has put tier child up for adoption changes her mind several years laler and goes through the courts lo get the child back, she often wins. The results are heartbreaking not only for the child, but for the adoptive parents. My position is as follows: The parents who raised you are your "real parents." One set should By Hi!

LAMB-I had a coir^Iele physical aboul lliree months ago when I reiired. Everything was fine except (he doctor told me lhat I had an indication of a sugar problem and gave me a five- hour glucose tolerance test. The Ihird-hour sugar reading was !?·! and he said il should be 124 or less. I '.veigh 180. am S-feel-9 and 63 years old. The doctor lold me only to watch my sweeis and maintain a 1500 calorie diel and have my blood checked in a year. Hou 1 serious is 174 for Ihe third hour? Since I have now moved lo Texas should I wail a year, or find another doclor now n Also. I asked the doclor if I should check my urine and he said it wouldn't show in urine tests. DEAR READER - It is true thai a reading of 174 three hours after ingesting glucose isupin is high. The interpretation of the results, though, must be dependent upon all the facts in the case. Were you properly prepared for the lest by eating adequale amounts of carbohydrates and sweets for three days before testing? If a person avoids carbohydrates and tries to lose weight because he is going lo have a checkup, he may have an abnormal test resull that resembles diabetes which is a response to the diet he has been on. Blood sugar ( g l u c o s e ) values vary a lot depending on the method used for Ihe chemical analysis of the test. Certainly 174' is not in the danger range bul it is far from normal. You might have sugar in your urine because I presume your blood level may be even higher in the first hour after taking the glucose. If the level is round 170 or higher, sugar can spill into the urine. Even normal people who eal a lot of swecls may sometimes have a peak blood sugar level and some urine in Ihe sugar. The test wouldn't lell you anything new (hough as you already know you have blood sugar level in the range of 174. Hints from Heloise Pickle juice recycled Dear Hetoise: 1 have a suggestion for anyone who hales to throw away leftover pickle juice from bread and butter or sweet pickles, or has some extra cucumbers. Peel and thinly slice one cucumber (and one onion, if desired). Sprinkle with salt and let stand three hours. Pour off liquid. Heat leftover pickle juice to boiling point and add cucumber and onions. Heat through but do not boil. Pack in leftover jar and store in refrigerator. Yield: approximately one and one-half pints of pickle "quickies." Bits of pickled onion and second-time leftover juice add zip to macaroni, potato, and mixed green salads. Laura J.Leonard · * * Laura, You're a sweetie! I tried this, except I didn't boil the pickle juice and cucumbers, just poured the juice in a jar. Boy, were they good! The only suggestion I might make is to rinse and drain the cucumbers so they won't be too ulty. OUTSTANDING! H«lolsel! « « « Dear Heloise: You have given so many wonderful hints that I think it high time 1 sent one to you, I watch the paper for good sales on shower curtains and I buy the heaviest and wildest colors. I cut off the top (used for hanging) and use the rest as a cover for my large table in the yard. It fits large round, square or long tables and just needs wiping off. I getso many, "Wheredid you ever find this size cover?" Rachel O'Connor * « * Dear Heloise: For watering large house plants I insert a narrow strip of cloth or heavy twine In the soil of each plant and put the other end in a container of water. Make sure this container of water rests on something higher than the plants. Helen Seman LETTER OF THOUGHT Dear Heloise: This is something I want everyone to think about. When you stop making mistakes, "You will be si: feet under... "Or a million miles up..." · Judge Wise · · * Dear Heloise: After scouring and cleaning your stainless steel sink, rub it with cooking oil. It will stay clean much longer and clean more easily the next time. My son -in-law gave me this Up, Niola Henry + * * Dear Heloise: Here is a hint on preparing liver for cooking. I find by using sharp scissors, I can cut out the membrane and tough skin and slice away. After trying to slice liver with a knife and have it slipping and sliding everywhere, this is a real short cut. The scissors are so handy for opening those, almost resistible, bags too. You can cut a nice even top off and shake all the ingredients out without a mess. NanaB, * * + Dear Heloise: To whiten white nylon items that hav.e been discolored through washing or soiling, u'je the packaged color remover. It really works! Nancy Martin I think you should make a real effort ti eliminate any obesity thai you have and your ticigM and weigh! suggest'lhal you could lose 20 to 25 pounds.
