Control Type 2 Diabetes

The type 2 diabetes epidemic now affects more than 20 million Americans. And it’s increasingly common among children. The number of kids with type 2 diabetes has increased 1,000 percent in the last 10 years.
Until now, type 2 diabetes was believed to be like cancer, a disease that is largely incurable. People with type 2 assumed they were doomed to a life of taking medication. 

The good news is that it is possible to control type 2 diabetes with weight loss and exercise. That’s according to a study published in the journal Diabetologia in 2011. 

Researchers found that an ultra-low-calorie diet can reduce the fat in the pancreas and liver, allowing insulin production and sensitivity to return to normal levels.

Dr. Roy Taylor, director of the Newcastle Magnetic Resonance Centre at Newcastle University in England, headed up the study. He says patients don’t necessarily have to cut their diet to 600 calories. “What I can tell you definitively is that if people lose substantial weight by normal means, they will lose their diabetes," he said in a statement.  
People should talk to their doctor before attempting such a low-calorie diet. But anyone with diabetes should be encouraged to know that every pound lost is a step toward renewed health.
People who lose weight and exercise more may not need medication to control their diabetes, either. And that’s really good news.

That’s because some diabetes medications come with serious side effects.  The side effects of Actos, which is the best-selling diabetes drug of all time, include increased risk for eye disease, bone fractures, heart failure — and even bladder cancer.

In fact, patients who take Actos for more than a year are at a 40 percent increased risk of developing Actos bladder cancer. Thousands of patients have sued after taking Actos and suffering complications.
It’s always best to start with exercise and healthy eating. Both can bring down blood sugar, and could end up saving lives. Doctors can decide if and when medication is needed, and which medication is best.

Which Food to Avoid To Not Suffer from Diabetes?

Which Food to Avoid To Not Suffer from Diabetes?

Today an increasing number of people suffering from Diabetes, often by a sedentary lifestyle, being overweight or obese and other times a factor of genetics but because they have not known how to prevent it.

In this article you will see what foods you should avoid, lest you suffer from Diabetes, pay close attention because it really is very important:

The American Diabetes Association recommends on its website to follow the diabetic food pyramid divides food into six groups. The first is the largest and consists of breads and grains, the second consists of vegetables, the third for fruit, room for protein and fat for milk fifth and sixth in oils and sweets. This group is restricted and it ranks last in the list.

What are the foods we should avoid?

Simple carbohydrates such as honey, jams, jellies and candy are the fastest rise in blood glucose, therefore its use should be avoided. Complex carbohydrates such as fruits and vegetables must know how to balance them.

"Should be deleted industrialized flour foods, avoid pizzas, pasta, cakes and pies so they do not alter the level of glucose in the body. Starches are much more dangerous than other sugars and are found mainly in vegetables and foods like pasta and bread. "Says a specialist.

Most nutritionists advise diabetics to prioritize the consumption of fish versus meat. Fish that recommend including the first will be those with lower fat.

The meat must be cooked on the grill or grill. The role of meat in the kitchen of diabetes has him chicken breast being the most suitable for the patient menu.

Thereby, they should limit animal fats or saturated fats. Furthermore, minimizing the consumption of fried foods.


Fruits like grapes, kiwi, banana and plum should be avoided. "Do not abuse a lot of acidic fruits, remember that moderation can consume almost anything," says a nutritionist.

You have to try the fruits that we consume contain large amounts of water. Recommended: m anzanas, pears, watermelons.


Alcoholic beverages with high sugar, beer, sweet wines, spirits and cider should be avoided. The low sugar content, such as whiskey can be taken in moderation and always with meals, since alcohol can lower blood glucose levels and cause hypoglycaemia, which is dangerous.

Managing Diabetes: Begin with the ABCs

More than 18 million people in the United States have diabetes. And one-third of them are undiagnosed. This can be devastating, as diabetes is the main cause of kidney failure, limb amputation, and new onset blindness in American adults.

People with diabetes are also five to two times more likely than people without diabetes to create heart illness. In fact, 65 percent of diabetics die from heart attack or stroke.

Diabetes mellitus is a condition in which the amount of glucose (sugar) in the blood is high because the body cannot use it properly. Glucose comes from the digestion of starchy foods such as bread, rice, potatoes, chapatis, yams and plantain, from sugar and other sweet foods, and from the liver which makes glucose.

Diabetes is a disorder that affects the way your body deals with the foods you eat. Normally, carbohydrate foods are broken down in to the sugar glucose, which travels in the blood (hence the name blood sugar) until it reaches your cells, where it is taken in and used for growth and energy. For this to happen, however, the hormone insulin must be present. Produced by the pancreas, insulin acts as a key that unlocks cells so that they can get blood glucose.

The main symptoms of untreated diabetes are increased thirst, going to the look all the time – at night, extreme tiredness, weight loss, genital itching or regular episodes of thrush, and blurred vision.

Insulin works like a key to open the door of the cells so glucose – the fuel you get from food - can come inside and be converted in to energy - cause serious complications and premature death. Insulin is vital for life. It is a hormone produced by the pancreas that helps the glucose to enter the cells where it is used as fuel by the body.

Type 1 diabetes develops if the body is unable to produce any insulin. This type of diabetes usually appears before the age of 40. It is treated by insulin injections and diet and regular exercise is recommended. Type 2 diabetes develops when the body can still make some insulin, but not , or when the insulin that is produced does not work properly (known as insulin resistance). In most cases this is linked with being fat. This type of diabetes usually appears in people over the age of 40, though in South Asian and African-Caribbean people often appear after the age of 25. However, recently, more babies are being diagnosed with the condition, some as young as five.

In diabetes, either the pancreas may produce insufficient insulin, or the body has lost its ability to use it effectively (insulin resistance). Glucose builds up in the blood, overflows in to the urine, and passes out of the body without fulfilling its role as the body’s main source of fuel.
Five types of diabetes:

Type 2 diabetes is treated with lifestyle changes such as a healthier diet, weight loss and increased physical activity. Tablets and/or insulin may also be necessary to accomplish normal blood glucose levels.

The main aim of treatment of both types of diabetes is to accomplish blood glucose, blood pressure and cholesterol levels as near to normal as possible. This, together with a healthy lifestyle, will help to improve wellbeing and protect against long-term damage to the eyes, kidneys, nerves, heart and major arteries.
Managing Diabetes: Start with the ABCs

The National Diabetes Education Program suggests that you reduce your risk of heart illness and stroke by working with your health care team to monitor two critical factors, which they have named the Diabetic ABCs.

"A” is for the A1C check.

This is a number that shows how well your blood glucose has been controlled over the last 3 months. Bad glucose control can hurt your eyes, kidneys and feet. The objective for most people is an A1C of less than 7. It should be checked at least five time a year.

A 1998 research study showed that increased in blood pressure could be prevented significantly by goji’s master molecule polysaccharides. Polysaccharides are long-chain sugar molecules that provide nourishment for macrophages, the giant white blood cells which are an important component of the body’s defense technique against invading microbes and the malignant cells which form tumors.

Two polysaccharides discovered in Goji berries have not been found in any other fruit. The Goji polysaccharides enhance the body’s production of human growth hormone (HGH), which helps build muscle and repair skin cells. The LBP polysaccharide complex unique to Goji berries has been found to be a powerful secretagogue - a substance that stimulates the secretion of human growth hormone (HGH) by the pituitary gland.

Five research study in China showed that the LBP polysaccharide facilitated the proliferation of stem cells and increased the number of monocytes in bone marrow. The LBP polysaccharide helps the monocytes convert to matured leukocytes.

The objective for most people is 130/80. High blood pressure can cause heart attack, stroke and kidney illness.

“B” is for blood pressure.

Bad cholesterol (LDL) can oxidize and clog blood vessels, causing heart attack or stroke. Nice cholesterol (HDL) helps to lower bad cholesterol. The objective for most people is LDL under 100 and HDL over 40.

"C” is for cholesterol.

Goji contains eta-sitosterol, which has been shown to lower cholesterol levels. Its antioxidants keep cholesterol from oxidizing and forming arterial plaques. Goji increases exercise tolerance, stamina, and endurance. It also helps to eliminate fatigue, when receiving from illness.
