Prediabetes: This Invisible Epidemic Affects Millions

Prediabetes: This Invisible Epidemic Affects Millions | Diabetes News | Scoop.it
Since you are reading an article on Diabetes Daily, it is likely that you or someone you love has already been diagnosed with some form of diabetes or prediabetes. But many people don’t know they have type 2 diabetes or its precursor, prediabetes. Could your family members be walking around with high blood sugar unknowingly? Prediabetes Affects Millions Invisibly CBS Chicago recently did a report on the CDC’s most recent statistics on diabetes and prediabetes. It’s estimated that 86 million people in the U.S. have prediabetes…and 90% of them don’t even know it. Why? Because prediabetes is often without symptoms and because screenings for it have not become routine. In fact, The Diabetic News just reported on a recently-published study that shows a large percentage of doctors don’t know all the risk factors that should prompt a prediabetes screening. The survey conducted by Johns Hopkins researchers found: “Of the providers

Did you know that turmeric’s well known compound curcumin has been shown in a clinical trial to possibly have an anti-diabetic effect?

 

Please note that Dr Greger points out that pre diabetes is a disease in itself and can be cured with a plant based regimen.

 

Health Tips: You can use turmeric root, turmeric powder, and people from India make a paste from a small hard piece of turmeric.

 

There’s also curcumin supplements, but chewing the food is always better than swallowing a pill.

 

The food contains all the compounds from the plant while capsules usually contain just one compound. The food comes from nature while the pill comes from a lab.

Supporting a Loved One Struggling With Diabetes

Supporting a Loved One Struggling With Diabetes | Diabetes News | Scoop.it
Perhaps the most challenging aspect of diabetes is the fact that it is not a temporary challenge, but a chronic one that touches the lives of everyone around it, radiating out from the person who lives with it into every area of life. The daily grind of living with this disease on top of the other stressors in our lives can lead us into periods of time when we cannot seem to complete all of the tasks we know are vital to tight management of our blood glucose, or other circumstances that fight against our desire or ability to do what is necessary to live well with diabetes. Sometimes people experience diabetes burnout and just cannot bring themselves to do what they know needs to be done for their care, or in some situations, there is denial about having the condition at all. Our loved ones see us tackling diabetes

Did you know that dairy cheese may be addictive? Many people who switch to a plant based lifestyle have the most problem letting go of dairy cheese.

 

Nuts are one of the best ways to ditch dairy as nuts are high in plant protein and rich in essential omega 3 fats. You can also use avocado and even banana to replace dairy.

 

Health Tips:  You can make delicious plant based cheese from nuts and seeds. Or you can now buy yummy plant based cheese in your healthy markets.

 

Both types are just as tasty as dairy cheese. You won’t really know how good it is and how great you feel until you make the effort.

 

Raw cashews, macadamia, almonds, pine nuts, Brazil nuts, sesame, sunflower and hemp seeds can be used to make all kinds of different plant based cheese.

 

Adding nutritional yeast to raw cashews adds an extra boost of cheesiness to dishes like macaroni and cheese.

 

Adding a teaspoon of a quality probiotic to your raw cashew nut and filtered water mixture will ensure your intestinal micro flora will help nurture your gut and re-colonize it with healthy bacteria.

 

Really great fermentation requires a strong probiotic and a warmer kitchen. Add garlic or other herbs to your own raw cheese.

How May Plants Protect Against Diabetes? | Care2 Healthy Living

How May Plants Protect Against Diabetes? | Care2 Healthy Living | Diabetes News | Scoop.it
Protective properties of whole plant foods against diabetes include antioxidants, lipotropes, fiber, and the ability to suppress the estrogen-producing bacteria

Did you know that meat consumption is a risk factor for diabetes? When people are put on a plant based regimen their antioxidants increase and this creates a reduction in diabetes as meat consumption drops.

 

Health tips:  Consuming more plant based real whole food which is rich in essential fiber can definitely make a huge difference in lowering cholesterol, lowering blood sugar,  and lowering chronic diseases.

 

Begin adding more legumes (beans, chickpeas, split peas, lentils) in place of animal based. Fill your plate with sprouts, greens, add land/sea veggies and maybe quinoa or some other ancient grain.

 

With this meal you have all the protein, fiber, enzymes, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals your body needs to function well.

 

Find out why vegetarian women have less estrogen blood levels than do their animal based counterparts.

The Best and Worst Diabetes Food Advice I've Seen

The Best and Worst Diabetes Food Advice I've Seen | Diabetes News | Scoop.it
This article is reprinted with permission from diaTribe. Find the original article here. By Adam Brown The lame food advice at my diagnosis, why it didn’t work, and my #1 Bright Spot solution I’ll never forget the diabetes food advice I received from my doctor at diagnosis: “You can eat whatever you want, as long as you take insulin for it.” In my view, this advice is misleading, overly simplistic, and damaging. In fact, I’d nominate it for the “worst” diabetes food advice out there. Unfortunately, those who are newly diagnosed tell me it is still common. Ugh. Eating “whatever I wanted” and taking insulin for it was the worst kind of blank check – it set me up for years of out-of-control high blood sugars, deep and prolonged lows, huge guesstimated insulin doses (and therefore big mistakes), mood and energy swings, and lots of diabetes frustration.

Can Simple Text Messages Improve Diabetes in Low-Income Populations?

Can Simple Text Messages Improve Diabetes in Low-Income Populations? | Diabetes News | Scoop.it
A study found that low-cost text messages to low income, minorities proved to help blood sugar management compared with the more costly usual care. Type 2 diabetes is a fast growing problem all around the world but it is growing particularly fast in lower income, diverse groups in the United States. Researchers looked into the idea of text messaging patients with type 2 diabetes as a way to “overcome the ‘digital divide’ to improve care”. Text Messaging Encouragement, Education, and Friendly Reminders The researchers conducted a randomized, non blinded, parallel-groups clinical trial involving 126 low-income, Hispanic participants with poorly controlled type 2 diabetes to take part in the Dulce Digital intervention or to get the usual care (UC). Dulce Digital sent the participants randomly chosen to receive their service up to three motivational, educational, and/or call-to-action text messages per day over a period of 6 months.

How 5 People With Diabetes are Rocking Their A1c While Eating 5 Different Ways

How 5 People With Diabetes are Rocking Their A1c While Eating 5 Different Ways | Diabetes News | Scoop.it
When I threw my graduation cap up in the air at my college graduation ceremony, I thought I was forever done with testing and grades! I was looking forward to getting a job and getting a yearly review at best. Enter diabetes diagnosis, and the dreaded “report card” we all know too well. The A1c is a great indicator of how well you’re managing your diabetes. As people with diabetes, we already have so much on our plate. We have to remember to test our blood, take insulin for our meals, carry our supplies, and now we have to try to ace this test, too. Just as diabetes is never ending, so is our mission to maintain a great A1c. Thanks to the diabetes online community (DOC), I learned a lot after being diagnosed. I was like a sponge trying to soak all this new information up. I learned that a
