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. This form of diabetes was caused by insulin resistance, often brought on by being overweight or obese along with leading a sedentary lifestyle. Then we learned children could also acquire Type 2 diabetes, and "juvenile-onset" was dropped from Type 1. Type 3, or Gestational, diabetes was found to take place in pregnancy and acted like a temporary form of Type 2 diabetes, which was usually "cured" by the birth of the pregnant mother's infant.nNow the fourth form of diabetes, dubbed Type 1.5, has been found.



Type 2 Diabetes - Living Well With Your Diabetes

Sat, 24 Jun 2017 12:59:01 -0500

How you react to being diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes does not have to dictate how you feel about the disease. Type 2 diabetes, while a lethal disease, is not a death sentence. Your life is not at immediate risk just because you are a diabetic. Even though it is a serious cause for concern and you most definitely should work on a solution, there is no need to damn yourself or lose spirit. It is certainly possible to live well despite having to control the type of carbohydrates and fats you need to eat each and every day.



Weight Loss - Keep Moving to Add to Your Weight Loss Benefits

Fri, 23 Jun 2017 13:59:01 -0500

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 17:59:01 -0500

Various kinds of antidiabetic medications work by different means and have varying effects on the body as a whole. As research into such effects progress, we learn more about how to tailor the best drug regimen for each person. In June of 2017, the New England Journal of Medicine reported on a study of canagliflozin (Ivokana), a member of the gliflozin family, and what other effects it might have besides the already known ones.



Type 2 Diabetes - Do You Have the Metabolic Syndrome?

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 12:59:02 -0500

It seems as if more and more people become unhealthy with age. As you get older, the likelihood of developing Type 2 diabetes rises. Approximately one out of five people age 65 and over have Type 2 diabetes. You could argue aging does not make it easier for any of us because our body loses its ability to manage minor issues with ease. But you could also say over time; our health becomes burdened with stress. Years of poor habits inevitably catch up, causing many of us to play catch up with our health ironically. One condition you should be worried about as you age is the Metabolic Syndrome.



Type 2 Diabetes - How Long Can You Go Without Eating?

Tue, 20 Jun 2017 13:59:01 -0500

Here is a question for you: how long can you go without eating? Have you asked yourself this question before? Often people shy away from attempting any challenge that could benefit their health because it takes a lot of work. Many Type 2 diabetics are quick to say they would love to lose weight but when it comes time to put in the work, they start looking for excuses.

Diabetes: Are You on The Way In Joining Millions of Others?

Mon, 19 Jun 2017 08:01:54 -0500

Diabetes has become an epidemic over the years, is increasing its momentum and not going to change any time soon. As it is a very highly self-inflicted problem, lifestyle-related diabetes has become the fastest growing disease in the western world. Projections show, type 2 diabetes will overtake coronary heart disease, depression and anxiety if not already done so. With this type of disease, the highest growth has been among young adults. There has been a rise in 21 to 29-year old's diagnosis and a 15 percent increase for those aged in their 30s. That diabetes only affects the older population is a myth.



Type 2 Diabetes - Need for Sufficient Sleep to Help Prevent Gestational Diabetes

Sun, 18 Jun 2017 17:59:01 -0500

"Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise." ~Benjamin Franklin. Mr. Franklin was known for getting a little sleep but going to bed early and having at least seven hours sleep has been linked to lowering the risk of developing Gestational diabetes. According to the study reported on in June of 2017 in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, going to bed early and getting enough sleep during pregnancy can help prevent developing diabetes at this time. Evidence suggests a lack of sleep impairs the metabolism of sugar.



Healthy Living - Reward Yourself for Having Good Habits That Help You Reach Your Goals

Sun, 18 Jun 2017 12:59:01 -0500

If you are looking to treat Type 2 diabetes by lowering your blood sugar it could be because you want to reduce your risk of developing serious complications. You may want to lose weight - there is nothing wrong with striving for a healthier appearance. Just as there are rewards for reaching your goals, you should give yourself rewards for having good habits.

Sat, 17 Jun 2017 17:59:02 -0500

One of the birth defects seen in the infants of mothers who have been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, is heart problems. Scientists at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis along with several research institutions in the United States, set out to discover ways of predicting heart problems in newborns before the actual problems appear. Their work reported on in June of 2017 in the journal Pediatric Research, included 68 mother-infant pairs



What Are The Dangers Of Taking Excessive Sugar

Sat, 17 Jun 2017 16:11:05 -0500

We all are familiar with sugar, but a few of us are aware of the hidden sugar and sources of it. We routinely take these sources in our daily life and are adding sugar in our bodies without knowing it. This increases glucose levels in the body and sugar level in the blood. This adds all the risks related to an elevated sugar level in the blood. To avoid this situation and to save yourself from the threats of high blood sugar, you should be aware of the sources of hidden sugar. After knowing these hidden sources, you will be able to eliminate these from your daily routine.

Wed, 14 Jun 2017 12:59:01 -0500

You may feel as if there are countless ways to change your lifestyle. Based on the state of modern medicine, this is likely true. There are so many things you could do for different reasons. Despite the number of options available, however, you should be wary of trying anything that relies too much on science.

Tue, 13 Jun 2017 13:59:02 -0500

It has become common to start skipping meals when there is an intention to lose weight. The idea behind it is simple: by eating less, there will be a larger caloric deficit which will lead to quicker weight loss. Does it work? Yes. But just because skipping meals can be useful does not mean you should do it. If you did not know already, there are issues involved with skipping meals - some of which may make weight loss more difficult.

Type 2 Diabetes - Immediate Release or Extended Release Anti-Diabetic Drugs?

Sun, 11 Jun 2017 13:59:01 -0500

Researchers at the University of Pavia in Pavia, Italy, have found the drug metformin extended release (XR) formula to be more efficient at controlling Type 2 diabetes than the drug metformin immediate release (IR) formula. In a study reported on in May of 2017 in the journal Drug Design and Developmental Therapy, two hundred and fifty-three people diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes had HbA1c levels between 7.0 percent and 8.5 percent (poor control). For six months these Type 2 diabetics were divided into two groups and received either 1,000 to 3000 mg of metformin IR, or 500 to 1500 mg of metformin XR per day.



Type 2 Diabetes - The Effect of High Thyroid-Stimulating Hormones on Small Blood Vessels

Sat, 10 Jun 2017 17:59:01 -0500

The thyroid gland is located in the neck and is responsible for making and releasing particular thyroid hormones. These hormones make it possible to burn energy for movement and heat. The Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) is released by the pituitary gland situated at the base of the brain. It tells the thyroid gland when to make thyroid hormone. When the thyroid gland is sluggish, the pituitary produces more TSH to stimulate the thyroid to produce enough hormone. When elevated TSH is found, the sufferer is treated with thyroid hormones.



Type 2 Diabetes - Creating an Effective Exercise Program

Sat, 10 Jun 2017 12:59:01 -0500

If you are new to exercise, getting started will seem daunting. It is normal not to know where to begin, but you will find your way, even if it takes some trial and error. More importantly, if you are looking to get started, it means you have made the decision to get active. Being active alone is a step forward, especially if you are not in great shape. Before you embark on a new exercise program, be sure to get your doctor's approval. Make sure your heart, your joints and your blood sugar readings are up to it. If you are to get fit, improve your health, and ultimately improve your quality of life, you will need to have an exercise program sorted along with a time that works for you. Let's go over the essentials of a physically active lifestyle.

Wed, 07 Jun 2017 17:59:01 -0500

For more than a decade preeclampsia and Gestational diabetes which is also known as diabetes of pregnancy, have been diagnosed together in sufficient numbers of women to make scientists suspect a relationship exists between the two. Preeclampsia is a condition in which pregnant women develop high blood pressure, and lose protein in their urine. Often they suffer swelling in their ankles, feet, and hands, as well as having abnormally sensitive reflexes. If not dealt with, the condition can progress on to eclampsia, or convulsions, endangering the lives of both the mother and child.

Diabetic retinopathy is a common complication of Type 2 diabetes, and the risk of developing this complication increases with the length of time one has Type 2 diabetes, and by the level of control one has of their blood sugar. Early detection of diabetic retinopathy is essential for the preservation of vision. All people diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes must be screened at intervals, but what about those with newly-diagnosed diabetes.



Type 2 Diabetes - Eating White Rice May Increase Your Risk of Developing Diabetes

Sun, 04 Jun 2017 12:59:01 -0500

There are many foods you should avoid. If we were to create a list, it would be endless. Much of it comes down to opinion anyway, so it can be difficult to find a source you can trust. You will also have your preferences that must be considered as well. However, it all becomes clear when facts become involved. It is hard to argue with evidence, especially when it is strongly conclusive. There are particular foods worse than others that deserve a notable mention.

Type 2 Diabetes - A Simple Urine Test To Help Predict Diabetes

Sat, 03 Jun 2017 17:59:01 -0500

A definitive diagnosis of Type 2 diabetes is made by measuring an individual's fasting blood sugar and HbA1c levels. Both these tests require blood sampling. Many people would much prefer a urine sample to be used to predict who needed to have further testing of their blood sugar and stability levels? According to scientists at the Kyoto Prefectural University of Medicine and several other Japanese research centers, testing the urine pH may be a practical way to predict which particular people are at risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.



Type 2 Diabetes - Does Air Pollution Raise the Risk of Pregnant Women Developing Diabetes?

Wed, 31 May 2017 12:59:02 -0500

Living With Diabetes - Foods to Avoid

Tue, 30 May 2017 13:58:50 -0500

Diabetes is a chronic disease that is characterized by increased levels of blood sugar (glucose). Glucose is a sugar that comes from the digestion of the food that we eat; it circulates the blood and is used by the body for energy. The causes of diabetes are considered as a disorder in the production or function of insulin, or a hormone made by the pancreas, which functions as a key facilitating the passage of glucose from the blood to organs and tissues.

Type 2 Diabetes - A Low-Calorie Diet Helps to Treat Inflammation and Blood Vessel Damage

Sun, 28 May 2017 17:59:01 -0500

People diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes are often told to lower their weight or else to maintain their healthy lean weight. Scientists at Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, have found a link between weight loss and two things: inflammation, and blood vessel function. Type 2 diabetes is a disease of inflammation and causes damage to blood vessels. Damage to blood vessels is one of the reasons why heart disease and stroke are more common among people with Type 2 diabetes than among nondiabetic individuals.



Type 2 Diabetes - Do You Know Your Limits Where Food Choices and Quantities Are Concerned?

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. It could be a hard pill to swallow as admitting your shortcomings in any area will require some humility. If you struggle with your diet, weight, or blood sugar, it may be because you are not establishing your limits. And if you are, you may be crossing them unintentionally. It is a fine line, and one step too far means you could be compromising your efforts. Type 2 diabetes is a common disease, affecting millions of adults worldwide. The main reason it is so ubiquitous is it is frequently allowed to develop without intervention. Type 2 diabetes requires certain factors to be present for it to exacerbate, and they are all related to lifestyle. While some people are predisposed to the disease by birth, external factors are the only ones that escalate its progression.



Type 2 Diabetes - Is Cathodal Direct Current Stimulation A New Treatment for Diabetic Foot Ulcers?

Sat, 27 May 2017 17:59:01 -0500

Diabetic foot ulcers occur when part of the skin covering an area of the foot dies. This is caused by damaged blood vessels and indirectly by nerve damage. Blood vessels throughout the body suffer when blood sugar levels are abnormally high. Nerves are damaged when blood vessels are unable to supply them with enough oxygen and nutrients. Damaged nerves are called diabetic neuropathy, in which there is numbness and tingling in a stocking-glove distribution. Feet are particularly susceptible, but the condition is also seen in the hands, arms, and legs. Diabetic neuropathy can lead to wounds because often people with diabetes do not feel sharp objects under their feet.



Type 2 Diabetes - Vitamin D and Omega-3 Fatty Acid Supplementation in Gestational Diabetes

Wed, 24 May 2017 17:59:01 -0500

According to scientists at Arak University and several other research institutions in Iran, vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acid supplementation could become another treatment for Gestational or pregnancy associated diabetes. In the March/April issue of the Journal of Clinical Lipidology, women diagnosed with Gestational diabetes who supplemented with vitamin D and omega-3 fats were better able to control their blood sugar levels than those women who were just taking a placebo. A total of 140 women who were diagnosed with diabetes during their pregnancy were divided into four groups.

Type 2 Diabetes - The Best Time to Eat Carbohydrates

Fri, 19 May 2017 12:59:01 -0500

Sometimes it may seem like there is too much fuss about carbohydrates. Rarely, if ever, are they neglected in a diet or nutrition conversation? But is their importance overstated? And just how accurate is the information spread about carbohydrates?These are profound questions beyond the scope of this discussion. That said, we will touch on these topics indirectly as we talk about timing and consumption of carbohydrates. Type 2 diabetics are aware their carbohydrate intake has an effect on their body's blood sugar. Which leads us to our first point: carbohydrates need not be totally avoided, because they are not altogether harmful.

Type 2 Diabetes - Can Natural Products Be Used To Help Manage Diabetes Symptoms?

Wed, 17 May 2017 17:59:01 -0500

One important way to discover whether a product works is to study how it works. If a mechanism can be defined, then we have good evidence the treatment is effective. In May 2017, the journal Current Diabetes Review reported on a study on natural products for treating Type 2 diabetes. Investigators at the Federal University of Santa Catarina in Florianopolis, Brazil reviewed all the articles they could find concerning scientific testing of molecules from plant species purported to be therapeutic against Type 2 diabetes. The following molecules reportedly have anti-diabetic activity with defined ways of working.

Notably, this likely includes your diet and physical activity patterns, because these are the two most important factors in determining your health and well-being.



Type 2 Diabetes - High Blood Sugar and Certain Bacteria Increase the Risk of Benign Colon Tumors

Sun, 14 May 2017 17:59:01 -0500

A species of bacteria called Helicobacter pylori is linked to a high danger of developing stomach ulcers and benign tumors of the colon. Type 2 diabetes is also a known risk factor for benign colonic tumors. Scientists in Taiwan found having both risk factors puts people at an even higher risk of developing the tumors than either factor alone. The increased risk seen in both health problems at one time is greater than a mere addition to both risks. Researchers term this a synergistic effect.



Type 2 Diabetes - Exercising Does Not Justify an Unhealthy Diet

Sun, 14 May 2017 12:59:01 -0500

If a physically active lifestyle is something recent for you, take a moment to congratulate yourself.
