before fibromyalgia, i was on the go. i kept on top of things. i was a doer. then the chronic widespread pain slowed me down my doctor and i agreed that moving more helps ease fibromyalgia pain. he also prescribed lyrica®. for some patients, lyrica® sign ificantly relieves fibromyalgia pain and improves physical function. with less pain i feel better. lyrica® may cause serious allergic reactions or suicidal thoughts or actions. tell your doctor right away if you have these new or worsening depression or unusual changes in mood or behavior. or swelling, trouble breathing, rash, hives blisters, muscle pain with fever, tired feeling or blurry vision. common side effects are dizziness, sleepiness, weight gain and swelling of hands, legs and feet. don't drink alcohol while taking lyrica®. don't drive or use machinery until you know how lyrica® affects you. those who have had a drug or alcohol problem may be more likely to misuse lyrica®. fibromyalgia may hav e changed things but with less pain i'm still a doer.

good morning. it is 10:26. i'm kris sanchez. happening today, san francisco city leaders will discuss change at the ballot box, as in allowing 16-year-olds to vote. last night, students held a rally saying they support the idea.
10:27 am
voters would have to approve it before it becomes reality. it would eppley mean 16-year-olds could vote in municipal elections. again, this could be for san francisco. and it would be the first major city in the u.s. to allow it. the san mateo company solar city is expanding from rooftops into larger power sources. it is launching a new product called microgrids. those are larger power systems that communities can tap into when regular power grids crash because of severe weather or another catastrophe. we have a look at weather and traffic right after the break.

10:37 am
enbrel is clinically proven to provide clearer skin. many people saw 75% clearance in 3 months. and enbrel helped keep skin clearer at 6 months. enbrel may lower your ability to fight infections. serious, sometimes fatal events including infections, tuberculosis,lymphoma, other cancers, nervous system and blood disorders, and allergic reactions have occurred. before starting enbrel, your doctor should test you for tuberculosis and discuss whether you've been to a region where certain fungal infections are common. you should not start enbrel if you have an infection like the flu. tell your doctor if you're prone to infections, have cuts or sores, have had hepatitis b, have been treated for heart failure, or if you have symptoms such as persistent fever, bruising bleeding, or paleness. finally, clearer skin for more than a few days, weeks or months. enbrel works for me. ask your dermatologist if you can have clearer skin with enbrel

now to our special series kids and sports. and as parents, we know there's a risk our children can get injured in any activity. >> but did you know according to the cdc, kids between the ages of 5 and 14 account for 50% of all sports-related injuries in hospitals. so here with advice on how to prevent those injuries is a team division for the new york knicks basketball organization. >> and a sports medicine specialist both from here in manhattan which frank and cody know very well. >> i can't believe those statistics how young these kids are and the kinds of injuries they're sustaining. what sorts of injuries are these kids experiencing? >> i think it tends to be more sports-specific. in the racket sports like tennis or baseball, more upper extremity injuries. and basketball or soccer, more
10:41 am
hyperextension sprains. >> and what about concussions? >> concussions are very common as well. i think one of the things that's interesting is they've gotten so much attention recently. i think that's a combination probably of them being more common. there's a lot more people participating in sports. there's probably an increased roughness of some of the sports. i think a lot of it is just increased awareness and people are getting diagnosed more. >> but what about the equipment? we hear so much about the fact that -- frank my husband, played in these kinds of things. and without even a face guard. can these hurt the person as well? >> well, there's a theory that if you're wearing more protection, that you tend to be less cautious. so the theory of the old leather helmet was they weren't hitting with their heads as much. and now that they have more protection, they might not be as cautious. but the let me tell yous fit them well. and especially in the youth athletes, when i was a team physician for a high school football team i'd go around and
10:42 am
check some of the people's helmets. and some were borrowing from someone else and it didn't fit them well. that's the most important, that it fits them well. but it's a combination of factors. >> some kids play one sport and they're so into that one sport and they play it -- so they're using the same parts of their body, i guess you could say. is that unhealthy for kids? should they be playing multiple sports if they have the choice? >> i think in general, the risk with playing one sport is you get overuse injuries because using that joint or doing that activity all the time. and it's important to be involved in a wide range of sports develop better -- learn to move better and you don't overuse those specific joints for a given sport. >> anything you can do to prevent -- besides quit the sport? some advice for parents to give their kids, do this before you go out and do that? any kind of advice for them, preventative stuff? >> stretching is really
10:43 am
important and getting accustomed to a new activity before you -- that's true for kids and adults. making sure they have a good base before they start a sport. but warming up is really important for injury prevention. >> how would a kid he had a concussion? used to you had to get knocked out cold. but how would a kid know from a regular football game if he's got one? >> a lot of education is around getting your bell rung is concussion. only 10% of concussions have a loss of consciousness. so the old idea was that a concussion required you to lose consciousness but that's not true. >> how do you know? >> that's tricky because the symptoms evolve over time, too. it's important to evaluate a kid right when they come off the field and they might be a little out of it, they might have been -- looked off kilter or unsteady -- sometimes you have to wait and see what evolves with their symptoms. so you want to be cautious.
10:44 am
you might keep them out and recheck them in a few minutes and as the game goes on to determine if they have the concussion or not. >> and with concussions, you have to make sure they don't go back too soon. it could exacerbate the problem. >> thanks very much. we've god three words for you -- >> irish stout cupcake. >> and this fine irish lad will show us how to make them. people with type 2 diabetes come from all walks of life. if you have high blood sugar ask your doctor about farxiga. it's a different kind of medicine that works by removing some sugar from your body. along with diet and exercise farxiga helps lower blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes. with one pill a day, farxiga helps lower your a1c. and, although it's not a weight-loss or blood-pressure drug
