Avoiding Hypoglycemia at All Costs Is Crucial for Some With Diabetes

Avoiding Hypoglycemia at All Costs Is Crucial for Some With Diabetes | Healthy30 | Scoop.it

After 20 years of urging clinicians to maintain absolute intensive glycemic targets in patients with diabetes to reduce microvascular complications of the disease, the American Diabetes Association (ADA) and the Endocrine Society are now advising clinicians that for some patients, preventing hypoglycemia is more important than tight glycemic control.

The strategy of tight blood sugar control (glycemic control) has repeatedly failed to show benefit for heart attack prevention.  The increasing recognition that periods of low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) may have significant hazard is leading guideline writers to rethink a "one size fits all goal" (e.g. HgbA1c < 6.5 for all).  Some patient populations (older patients with heart disease) may be better off with looser control and therefore less episodes of hypoglycemia.  For now however clinicians are stuck in the middle since many "quality initiatives" include tight control as a measure of physicians' quality.  This question will take several years to sort out in clinical trials.

GMO Myths and Truths

Sepp Hasslberger's curator insight, January 16, 2013 8:45 AM

This is a report that collects and answers common misconceptions about genetically modified foods - an answer to the promoters of GMOs who say that critics are largely appealing to emotion rather than science...

 

"Based on the evidence presented in this report, there is no need to take risks with GM crops when effective, readily available, and sustainable solutions to the problems that GM technology is claimed to address already exist. Conventional plant breeding, in some cases helped by safe modern technologies like gene mapping and marker assisted selection, continues to outperform GM in producing high-yield, drought-tolerant, and pest- and disease-resistant crops that can meet our present and future food needs."

Articles of Health: The Alkalizing Benefits of Lemon and Lime

Articles of Health: The Alkalizing Benefits of Lemon and Lime | Healthy30 | Scoop.it

Start your day with Lemon Water
-----------------------
Many of us already know the benefits of drinking plenty of water and proper hydration, but with the simple addition of fresh lemon juice you may have yourself a very healing beverage.

 

I recommend that many of my patients begin each day...first thing in the morning...before any other food or drink with a glass of lemon water. Why lemon wat
er you may ask?

 

The benefits are remarkable:


•After a nights sleep the lemon water provides an ideal flush to the body's systems...digestive, circulatory and elimination.


•The lemon juice in particular is a great cleanser and purifier of blood, liver and kidneys.


•Lemon juice (although acidic in nature) is anionic and therefore produces an alkalizing effect on the body. This is important because the more alkaline your body is, the healthier it is....

Egg consumption and risk of coronary heart disease and stroke

Egg consumption and risk of coronary heart disease and stroke | Healthy30 | Scoop.it

Higher consumption of eggs (up to one egg per day) is not associated with increased risk of coronary heart disease or stroke. The increased risk of coronary heart disease among diabetic patients and reduced risk of hemorrhagic stroke associated with higher egg consumption in subgroup analyses warrant further studies.  The authors concluded that the findings of their meta-analysis “do not support a positive association between egg consumption and cardiovascular disease outcomes in the general population

The great roller coaster ride of eggs as good, neutral or bad food source continues.  The main problem with eggs is a high level of cholesterol (about 200 mg/ large egg) The dietary limit recommended daily by the AHA is 300 mg.  The great attraction to eggs are that they are high in protein. Several potential reasons for the lack of an overall association between egg consumption and coronary heart disease or stroke re considered in teh discussion. Although dietary cholesterol influences plasma concentrations of serum cholesterol, the effects are relatively small. In addition, epidemiologic studies have found weak or little association between dietary cholesterol intake and cardiovascular disease risk.

 For now we can relax our restriction on eggs.

Nearly 1 in 6 Americans has uncontrolled high blood pressure

Nearly 1 in 6 Americans has uncontrolled high blood pressure | Healthy30 | Scoop.it

Uncontrolled high blood pressure -- defined as having a systolic (top reading) of 140 or above or having a diastolic (bottom reading) of 90 or above -- is “public health enemy number two” behind smoking, said CDC Director Thomas Frieden; it contributes to 1,000 deaths in this country every day and causes $131 billion a year in healthcare costs.  See the Million Hearts Campaign for more info.
