Type 2 Diabetes - Does Diabetes Affect the Visual Part of Your Brain Before Causing Eye Damage?

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 17:59:01 -0500

Having Type 2 diabetes is known to raise the risk of developing vision loss. Among older people with Type 2 diabetes, between 10 and 20 percent have problems with their eyes, which weaken with age in all people. Approximately 90 percent of diabetics will have some blood vessel changes in their eyes after having diabetes for more than twenty-five years. The loss of vision is caused by retinopathy, a condition in which the back of the eye is damaged. The back of the brain or occiput often shows damage as well. The occipital lobes process information brought from the eye to the brain via the optic nerve. It might be assumed damage to the retina could lead to shrinkage of the occipital lobes (use it or lose it), but now it appears the occiput can sustain diabetic damage even before retinopathy takes place.



Type 2 Diabetes - Be Careful of Your Carbohydrate Choices at Breakfast

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 12:59:02 -0500

Eating wisely is one of the most powerful weapons in the fight against Type 2 diabetes. But despite what you may have been told, carbohydrates are not to be avoided altogether. They are not harmful to you by nature. It depends on how you choose to eat them and when. Carbs are a preferred energy source in the body due to efficiency and convenience. Because of glycolysis, it is the most efficient means of extracting energy from a nutrient. In the absence of carbs, our body will convert other nutrients into glucose to compensate: This is known as gluconeogenesis.



Type 2 Diabetes - How Best to Predict Overweight Newborns?

Sat, 12 Aug 2017 17:59:01 -0500

A significant concern in Gestational or pregnancy induced diabetes is the likelihood the baby will be born overweight. This can lead to the need for a cesarean section or C-section, a broken shoulder during a vaginal birth, and an increased risk of developing Type 2 diabetes down the track in both the mother and the child. Obstetricians and midwives check for Gestational diabetes with the oral glucose tolerance test or OGTT, usually at between 24 and 28 weeks of pregnancy.



Type 2 Diabetes - Three Known Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar

Sat, 12 Aug 2017 12:59:01 -0500

When it comes to your health, turn to natural remedies as often as you can. While this is not to say there cannot be a time and place for conventional medicine as there certainly is, you do want to go the natural route whenever possible. Going natural will help to reduce the overall risk of symptoms and side effects that come from prescription medicine, keeping you healthier in the long run. One natural treatment deserving your attention is apple cider vinegar. Apple cider vinegar has been used for many years by people of all cultures and offers a broad range of significant benefits.

Type 2 Diabetes and Weight Loss - There Are Benefits To Eating Slowly

Wed, 09 Aug 2017 12:59:01 -0500

Usually, diet and exercise are the first things that come to mind when people who are diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes think of losing weight. But let us look at another of those things we all know is beneficial but is often neglected. When was the last time you remember eating slowly? Taking your time, not dashing through the food on your plate. You have heard it is good for you. Eating is something we do several times each day and is part of our routine, so perhaps it is easy to overlook the importance of eating slowly. Have you ever been told gobbling food is good for you? It is highly unlikely it would do you any favors.



Type 2 Diabetes - Drinking Alcohol Raises the Risk of Leg Arterial Disease

Sun, 06 Aug 2017 17:59:01 -0500

Lower extremity arterial disease, or LEAD, also known as peripheral arterial disease (PAD), or peripheral vascular disease (PVD) of the legs, can be a complication of Type 2 diabetes. Blood heavily laden with sugar damages the blood vessels, leading to poor circulation and clots. Where blood vessels are damaged cholesterol, calcium, and blood cells that cause clotting, can congregate to form a clot, or thrombus, further lowering the amount of oxygen-rich blood going to the legs and feet. A decrease in oxygenated blood being transported through the legs and feet can lead to oxygen starvation in the muscles.



Type 2 Diabetes - The Emotional Aspects of A Diabetes Diagnosis

Sun, 06 Aug 2017 12:59:02 -0500

Some may be surprised to learn Type 2 diabetes inflicts more than physiological stress. There is often an emotional burden with this form of diabetes, which makes it even harder to manage. Fortunately, these burdens can be relieved if you have initiative. High blood sugar levels and Type 2 diabetes should not be allowed to linger, as this health issue has the potential to become one of the most debilitating and deadly diseases in modern life. Let us go over some of the emotional aspects of Type 2 diabetes. For better or worse, these issues affect your mindset. Do your best to ensure it is only positive.



Type 2 Diabetes - Do Blueberries Reduce Blood Sugar?

Sat, 05 Aug 2017 17:59:01 -0500

Blueberries are known to be highly nutritious and are one of the world's powerful sources of antioxidants. They contain anthocyanin, the pigment that gives them their blue color (other anthocyanins may be purple or red). Anthocyanins are thought to promote heart health, and decrease the risk of atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries).



Type 2 Diabetes - Weight Loss Can Be Tied to When You Eat As Well As A Calorie Reduction

Sat, 05 Aug 2017 12:59:01 -0500

Do you set a calorie limit for yourself? More importantly, do you regulate your intake in any way? If you are looking to lose weight, treat Type 2 diabetes, or make general health improvements, moderating your caloric intake is going to help you. You cannot afford to eat based on your appetite and guesses alone: this is what causes many people to become overweight, to begin with.



Type 2 Diabetes - Are You Looking for a Magic Pill to Cure Your Health Problem?

Fri, 04 Aug 2017 13:59:01 -0500

Whether it is weight loss, hypertension, hyperglycemia, or high blood cholesterol, there is always a search for the "magic pill" to cure these health problems. To some extent, methods of coping with these issues are available. For instance, there are many medications available to lower high blood pressure, high cholesterol readings, and blood sugar. The problem with many drugs or supplements is they do nothing to treat the cause.



Type 2 Diabetes - Does Moderate-Intensity Exercise Impact Blood Sugar Levels?

Wed, 02 Aug 2017 17:59:01 -0500

If exercise were a pill, every doctor would prescribe it to people with Type 2 diabetes because of its positive effects. Physical activity is strongly recommended for lowering blood sugar levels and keeping Type 2 diabetes under control. Scientists at the University of Alberta and various other research institutions in Canada and Egypt, have found at least part of why exercise is so important. They discovered the level of a molecule known as interleukin-6 ( IL-6) was increased after moderate-intensity exercise in people who had been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes.



Type 2 Diabetes and Weight Loss - Are There Good and Bad Calories?

Wed, 02 Aug 2017 12:59:01 -0500

A calorie is a calorie. Or is it? Everyone is familiar with calories. We all know they serve as energy and their intake is the cause of changes in our body weight. What many do not know however is not all calories are the same. More specifically, it has to do with the source, whether it is food or drink.



Weight Loss - Build the Foundation First

Tue, 01 Aug 2017 13:59:01 -0500

Millions of people including Type 2 diabetics, are fighting the same weight loss battle you are. We all crave a lean physique. We all want a healthy body. But before we can have these, it seems we must toil. More specifically, we must build the foundation for a healthy life. Nothing can be produced without effort. Also, it is not just the foundation that matters. It is also what you build on it. Your lifestyle and how you maintain it will define your health and well-being for years to come. Your habits will determine the direction everything takes how you eat, what you eat, and even when you eat, matters.



What Are The Best Fruits Diabetics Can Eat?

Mon, 31 Jul 2017 09:33:52 -0500

Fruit is not off-limits for people with diabetes. It has too many good things going for it such as fiber and nutrients, as well as its natural sweetness. So, what are the best fruits diabetics can eat? It is the most common question which arises in the minds of diabetics as many of them believe that they can't eat fruits as all fruits contain all sugar content.



Type 2 Diabetes - Insulin Sensitivity Response Differs in Obese Adolescents And Obese Adults

Sun, 30 Jul 2017 17:59:01 -0500

Type 2 Diabetes - Can Liposuction Do More Than Smooth and Sculpt?

Sat, 29 Jul 2017 17:59:01 -0500

Liposuction became popular in the 80's as a way to sculpt an aesthetically pleasing body. Could the effect of removing fat tissue also prevent or help to control Type 2 diabetes and heart and blood vessel disease? That is what scientists at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York, United States, wanted to know.



Type 2 Diabetes - Four Beverages Known to Help Manage Blood Sugar

Sat, 29 Jul 2017 12:59:01 -0500

If you have Type 2 diabetes, one thing is for certain, and that is you need to be cautious about which beverages you put into your body. Many drinks contain a high volume of sugar, which will send your blood sugar levels soaring, making it hard to keep your condition under control. On the other hand, some beverages tend to do the opposite and will help to stabilize your blood sugar levels. Which beverages should you focus on?



Type 2 Diabetes - Link Between Nonalcoholic Liver Disease and Peripheral Vascular Conditions

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 17:59:01 -0500

Type 2 diabetes is a known risk factor for both nonalcoholic liver disease and peripheral vascular conditions. Scientists at Qingdao University and other research facilities in China have found a link between both conditions. In July of 2017, the Internal Medicine Journal reported on a study of two thousand six hundred and forty-six participants who had been previously diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. They were all at least 40 years of age. Those who had nonalcoholic fatty liver disease were at a high risk for peripheral vascular conditions. A total of 12.8 percent of the participants with the liver condition also had vascular conditions, compared with 7.8 percent of the participants without liver disease.



Healthy Living - Proclaim Your Readiness to Change Your Overall Health

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 12:59:01 -0500

What is your greatest struggle? For you, it may be financial. It may have to do with your relationships. Maybe you are going through hard times at work. These are all hardships faced by the vast majority of us at one point or another. And you know what: some struggle is essential. How are you to better yourself or learn from your mistakes otherwise? Another common struggle many of us currently face or will encounter is to do with health. However, this is not something you should want to experience. There is nothing to be gained from seeing your health degrade, and there is no consolation in finding you have a disease be it acute or chronic.



Type 2 Diabetes - Do You Have The Resolve, the Persistence to Improve Your Health?

Tue, 25 Jul 2017 13:59:01 -0500

Persistence could be explained as being a course of action in spite of difficulties. With persistence, you can achieve the most delicate of tasks. You can succeed when the odds are against you. Moreover, you can overcome the adversities that make many people quit. Staying power is a valuable quality. If more people had it, there would be a significant change in our society. Fewer people would succumb to preventable health issues: obesity and Type 2 diabetes would no longer debilitate so many lives.



Type 2 Diabetes - Is There A Six Month Transition Time Before A Diabetes Diagnosis Is Made?

Sun, 23 Jul 2017 17:59:01 -0500

According to recent research published in July 2017 in the online journal PLOS ONE, a critical six-month transition phase occurs in people before they can be diagnosed with full-blown Type 2 diabetes. Scientists at Stanford University in Palo Alto, United States, and various other institutions in China studied 7,334 participants from the Maine (USA) State Health Information Exchange. The researchers looked at all the medical records dating back to 24 months before the Type 2 diabetes diagnosis was made. They found a critical period of six months prior to the diagnosis, a time when it might be possible to head off the disease.



Type 2 Diabetes - How Walnuts Affect the Brain Could Help You Resist Chocolate Cake

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 17:59:01 -0500

One of the tenets of science is learning the mechanism of how something works and helps with knowing it does work. Walnuts are recommended for helping to control weight and blood sugar levels. A new study shows exactly how walnuts work. Small parts of the brain, called the left and right insula, is a section of the cerebral cortex and is located at the base of the Sylvian fissure. The insula is involved in the processing and control of emotions, memory, taste, and the craving for food among other things.



Type 2 Diabetes - The Key To Success Is Internal Motivation

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 12:59:01 -0500

To be motivated means you have the desire to bring about something you desire but it's been said you must be careful with motivation. Initially, it may seem like there are no problems with motivation but as with many things, there are pros and cons. If you are not careful, you are going to make the common mistake of focusing on the former while neglecting the disadvantages. When it comes to health and well-being, you have to put in the work. Whether it is now or in the near future, there will be a time where you will need to stop procrastinating and fix your health issues, even if they are minor. Since the odds are against us as we age, this moment is inevitable.



Type 2 Diabetes - Be A Tortoise, Not A Hare, to Help Reduce Your Diabetes Risk

Fri, 21 Jul 2017 13:59:01 -0500

The hare is quick. Like rabbits, they are fast-moving creatures. Tortoises, on the other hand, are anything but quick. Similar to sloths, no matter how hard they try there is a limit to how fast they can move. Now if we suggest you should move like a tortoise and not a hare when it comes to making changes to your lifestyle, you might get the impression we are advocating sluggishness over quickness. That is not the case. The difference comes down to efficiency.



Type 2 Diabetes - Slowing the Progression of Diabetic Kidney Disease

Thu, 20 Jul 2017 17:59:01 -0500

One severe and all-too-common complication of Type 2 diabetes is kidney disease and their subsequent failure. Diabetic kidney disease is diagnosed by a test that looks for albumin, or the presence of protein in the urine. Albumin is a molecule usually found in the blood. When the kidneys filter blood, they keep the albumin in the bloodstream where it belongs. When the kidneys begin spilling albumin into the urine, a condition called albuminuria results. If it is allowed to go on or become worse, the kidneys can eventually shut down altogether. When that happens, the diabetic needs dialysis (artificial kidney), or a kidney transplant. When the diabetic receives a diagnosis of albuminuria, they are also in danger of having or developing heart and blood vessel disease.



Type 2 Diabetes - The Impact of Diabetes

Wed, 19 Jul 2017 20:27:54 -0500

Type 2 Diabetes - Your Blood Pressure Reading May Predict Diabetic Retinopathy

Sun, 16 Jul 2017 17:59:01 -0500

In July of 2017, the online journal Scientific Reports (Nature) published an article on diabetic retinopathy and the importance to people diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes of keeping on top of their blood pressure reading. Workers at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil studied five hundred and forty-four Type 2 diabetics who were at high risk for developing diabetic retinopathy, a severe eye disease. Over the course of six years, the participants had an annual eye examination. Their blood pressure reading was taken as they went about their normal routines. Their aorta (artery from the heart to the rest of the body), was examined for stiffness. By the end of the study, one hundred and fifty-six of the participants either developed diabetic retinopathy or saw the condition grow worse.



Type 2 Diabetes - Three Keys to Preventing Diabetes

Sun, 16 Jul 2017 12:59:02 -0500

There is much debate as to whether or not Type 2 diabetes is a preventable disease. Some believe there is little that can be done to stop its development, as it is mostly defined by genetics. Some people are more predisposed to this form of diabetes, so the influence of genes is real. Certain ethnicities come to mind, not to mention family history is also a proven factor. Believing there is not a preventable component to developing Type 2 diabetes would be a misunderstanding. In fact, three factors can make a difference.



How to Control Acid Reflux

Sun, 16 Jul 2017 08:50:47 -0500

Type 2 Diabetes - The Location of Visceral Fat Helps to Predict Heart and Blood Vessel Disease

Sat, 15 Jul 2017 17:59:01 -0500

In July of 2017, the Journal of Diabetes Investigation reported on some interesting and potentially useful research from the Tokyo Medical and Dental University. The study included six hundred and eighty-two people who had been previously diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes with an average age of 64. By an average of 2.5 years, twenty-one of the participants were diagnosed with heart and blood vessel disease. Where fat around the inner organs was significantly greater than the amount of fat under the skin, the Type 2 diabetics were 82 percent more likely to develop heart and blood vessel disease than those participants with less fat around the organs. The scientists concluded measuring fat around the organs and just under the skin and dividing the former by the latter gives a ratio able to predict which people with Type 2 diabetes are at high risk for heart attacks or strokes.



A Link Between Air Pollution and Type 2 Diabetes

Sat, 15 Jul 2017 12:54:11 -0500

The prevalence of diabetes has risen substantially in the past decade all over world, which has been linked to an "epidemic" of obesity.

Type 2 Diabetes - Diabetic Mouth Infections

Wed, 12 Jul 2017 17:59:01 -0500

People who have been diagnosed as having Type 2 diabetes are at risk for both dental and fungal infections. Not surprisingly scientists at the University of Fluminense in Brazil, and the Institute of Osvaldo Cross have found diabetics are at risk for developing Candida albicans (a type of fungus), infections in the mouth. Candida albicans is the same fungus that causes vaginal yeast infections. In May and June of 2017, the Journal of Applied Oral Science reported on a study comparing Type 2 diabetic and 15 non-diabetic participants.



Type 2 Diabetes - The Benefits of Weight Loss

Wed, 12 Jul 2017 12:59:01 -0500

We are going to assume you have weight to lose. How much weight exactly is irrelevant because it varies between individuals. With that said, if you are a middle-aged adult there is a likelihood you have more than just a few pounds you ought to lose. Even if you have been gaining half a pound a month over four years, that totals twenty-four pounds. Twenty pounds give or take, can mean the difference between being at a healthy weight or being overweight. There are many reasons to lose weight.

Sat, 08 Jul 2017 17:59:01 -0500

In July of 2017 Planta Medica, a leading international journal in the field of natural products reported coffee is thought to be useful for preventing Type 2 diabetes, as well as other chronic health conditions. K. Nyberg, of the University of Leipzig, writes any one or more of 800 molecules in coffee could be responsible for lowering the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes and liver disease. Drinking three to four cups of the beverage also appears not to cause heart problems. Both caffeine-containing coffee and decaffeinated coffee have the same effect, implying caffeine is not responsible for its health benefits.

Type 2 Diabetes - Can Controlling Blood Sugar Levels Control Necrobiosis Lipoidica?

Sun, 02 Jul 2017 17:59:01 -0500

Necrobiosis lipoidica is sometimes referred to as necrobiosis lipoidica diabeticorum because it was first discovered in people who had been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes and is often seen with the condition. Collagen, connective tissue, is replaced with immune cells, fat cells, and thickened blood vessels, to make what is called a granuloma. Granulomas are used to wall off infection, inflammation, or anything else the body perceives as undesirable. Gradually granulomas take on calcium and become as hard as bone.

Type 2 diabetes is a predictable disease and it is not difficult to pinpoint its development. Its causes are well understood, meaning no one develops this form of diabetes for no apparent reason. This is not the case for the less common form of diabetes - Type 1, where despite theories suggesting a genetic component, its causes are not fully understood.



Type 2 Diabetes - Vitamin D Levels Are Linked to the Health of Blood Vessels

Wed, 28 Jun 2017 16:59:01 -0500

Heart and blood vessel disease is probably the most worrisome complication of Type 2 diabetes. In May of 2017, the online journal PLOS ONE reported on a study showing vitamin D is essential for forming new cells to line the inside of the vessels transporting blood throughout the entire body. Scientists at Tel Aviv University and several other research facilities in Israel recruited fifty-one people who had been previously diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. The scientists removed from the participants, bone marrow cells destined to grow and develop into cells that would line the inside of blood vessels and produced them either with or without vitamin D. One week later the cells grown with vitamin D were healthier and better developed than those grown without the vitamin.



Type 2 Diabetes - Do You Take Care of Your Body?

Wed, 28 Jun 2017 10:59:01 -0500

It is a travesty, so many people neglect their health and well-being because caring is inconvenient. Managing one's health requires work and attention, the same effort often given to other areas of a person's life.

Most people do not, and this is one reason why preventable diseases like Type 2 diabetes and obesity are rampant in our society.



Type 2 Diabetes - Medical Nutrition Therapy Helps With Newborn Birth Weight in Gestational Diabetes

Sun, 25 Jun 2017 17:59:01 -0500

In May of 2017, the Archives of Gynecology and Obstetrics reported medical nutrition therapy was found to be helpful in keeping newborns from becoming overweight in cases where their mother was diagnosed with Gestational diabetes. Gestational diabetes is the kind diagnosed for the first time during pregnancy. It affects about 7 percent of pregnancies - a fetus receiving high levels of sugar can store it as fat, just as in adults. Overweight children often become obese adults and are then at risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. Mothers of overweight newborns are at risk of needing c-sections. Scientists at Herning Hospital in Herning, Denmark, found the longer the mother diagnosed with Gestational diabetes followed their prescribed healthy diet, the lower the birthweight of their baby.



Type 2 Diabetes - Type 1.5 or Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults (LADA)

Sat, 24 Jun 2017 17:59:01 -0500

What we once knew about diabetes seems much simpler than it has turned out to be.Type 1, or juvenile-onset diabetes occurred in children and was caused by antibodies destroying the beta cells, the ones that make insulin in the pancreas. Type 2, or mature-onset, diabetes took place in adults usually over the age of 50.

Sun, 28 May 2017 12:59:01 -0500

Motivation might not be what you need. You may feel as if you have enough and it is not the root of your problem. The issue, on the other hand, might have to do with discipline.
