Diabetic Alert Dog - 4 Paws For Ability

Diabetic Alert Dog, Pip sensing a change in Megans blood sugar There are many tools to use in dealing with diabetes, and the Diabetic Alert Dog is one more tool to add to the toolbox used to help families deal with their child who has diabetes. With the use of a Diabetic Alert Dog the child can gain the independence they need as they grow up and mature and the parents are not afraid to allow them to do so. Here at 4 Paws we place Diabetic Alert Dogs with children who have insulin-dependent Type 1 Diabetes. As with all medical alert dogs, Diabetic Alert Dogs are trained to smell the chemical body changes that occur as the insulin levels increase or drop. When a child is experiencing a high or low, their body is releasing chemicals that change their typical scent. A 4 Paws Dog with the right training in scent-based work is able to respond to those chemical changes, at the onset of the changes long before any adverse medical reactions occur, by alerting the parents or caregivers to the change at its onset. The parents and/or child are then able to check their blood sugar level and take appropriate action. Training Diabetic Alert Dogs for children means that we must train a dog that i Continue reading >>

    For those of us who are savvy on health food, what I’m about to tell you will come as no surprise, if not, hold onto your hats. If you have heard about “good fats” such as poly-unsaturated fats and omega fatty acids, found in fish and olive oil, then you know that researchers and nutrition professionals agree that these fats should replace the “bad fats” including trans fats and saturated fats found in junk food.
    The body does need some fats, and the “good fats” in olive oil and fish are much more easily broken down and utilized by the body instead of the saturated fats, which instead of being broken down, may be allocated to fat storage, and add inches to the waistline and pounds to your physique.
    Increasing your waistline does not just hinder your look in a swimsuit, but is commonly acknowledged as a detriment to your health. Overweight and obese individuals have an increased risk of developing some serious complications which include heart disease, high blood pressure, arthritis and diabetes.
    Diabetes is a fast-growing pandemic in the US. High amounts of sugar and fatty foods in the typical American diet are one of the causes for the 800,000 new cases of diabetes diagnosed in patients 40-59 in the United States in 2007. Photo credit: National Diabetes Information Clearinghouse
    What you may not know is that that battling the bulge lowers your propensity to develop serious health consequences due to weight. For those suffering from diabetes, or at a high risk of developing diabetes, every tool is important to combat this growing threat.
    Another tool in this arsenal is surprisingly common: nuts. That’s right; you can munch your way to a lower glycemic index and control diabetes all while snacking on some peanuts.
    Tree nuts, like the ones shown here, are most commonly brazil nuts, walnuts, cashews and pecans. Incorporating these into your diet may help shed a few pounds and also prove to help manage onset and symptoms of type 2 diabetes. Photo credit: UC Davis Health System
    A new study conducted by researchers at the University of Toronto produced findings that support that nuts may be a vital way to manage diabetes. Results show that nuts may improve blood lipid levels and blood sugar levels in individuals with non-insulin dependent diabetes (type 2 diabetes).
    The goal of this study was to determine if by added nuts to a diet could improve glycemic control in patients with type 2 diabetes. Glycemic control was assessed by blood sugar levels (shown by HbA1c levels). Researchers also evaluated if these outcomes related to improvements in cardiovascular health.
    The study was conducted over a three month period and tested 117 participants currently being treated with oral hypoglycemic medications to treat their type 2 diabetes. The participants were randomized and split into three groups and given one of three diet options. The diets included a supplement with either a � cup of mixed nuts, mixed nuts and muffins or all muffins. The calorie content for each supplement was the same, around 450, but the mixed nuts have more unsaturated fats and fewer carbohydrates than the other two supplements with muffins.
    Study findings showed that the group given the supplement with all mixed nuts had a significantly reduced LDL (bad cholesterol) and total cholesterol levels compared to the full dose muffin group. Additionally, there was also a significant reduction in HbA1c levels in participants with full dose mixed nut supplement than the other two diets. This indicates a greater glycemic control and higher degree of effectively managing diabetes.
    "This is the largest study done to date looking at the effect of tree nuts (almonds, Brazils, cashews, hazelnuts, pecans, pine nuts, pistachios, macadamias and walnuts) and peanuts on Type 2 diabetes,” says Cyril Kendall, Ph.D., of the University of Toronto. “If improvements in glycemic control can be achieved by dietary changes, this would make a substantial contribution to the treatment of those with Type 2 diabetes.” In 2003, the FDA qualified that eating 1.5 ounces of nuts may help reduce the risk of heart disease, if added to a low fat and cholesterol diet. However, patients with type 2 diabetes have a much higher risk of developing heart disease than non-diabetic individuals. It begs the question that since the two are somewhat related in consequence, could the prevention be similar as well? Initial results seem to support this idea. Perhaps skipping your morning bagel and reaching for the walnuts instead could be a small step to bolster your health.

He might have diabetes. Sugar diabetes, more specifically known as canine diabetes, is a common disease to dogs. It is a hormonal disorder that affects dogs of ages 5 to 9. Some species like German Shepherd, Poodles, Keeshonden and Golden Retrievers register the highest incidence of this disease. Obese dogs also stand a greater risk of being diabetic. The ratio of female to male infected with the disease is 3:1. This book addresses the most conspicuous symptoms of diabetes in dogs, the main causes, and how to effectively treat it.

This Is How Dogs Detect Low Blood Sugar In Folks With Diabetes

One of the many burdens that someone with diabetes has to suffer with is the task of constantly monitoring their blood sugar levels. For some people, this means pricking their finger every hour to test their blood for normal levels of glucose. For others, it means employing the help of a Diabetic Alert Dog to assist with this daunting task. A Diabetic Alert Dog is highly trained to alert someone with diabetes when their glucose levels fall out of a normal range. Source: lukeandjedi Through practice a Diabetic Alert Dog can learn to detect dropping or rising glucose levels 30 minutes before their handler experiences any symptoms. This allows a diabetic person enough time to check their glucose levels and take the steps necessary to avoid serious complications. Some Diabetic Alert Dogs are also trained to get help or retrieve medical supplies. Source: diabeticalertdog Diabetic Alert Dog can be especially helpful during situations where it’s difficult for someone to check their blood sugar with a medical device (i.e. during sleep, a business meeting, exercise, or while driving). Many people that suffer from diabetes have to wake up several times a night and check their blood sugar l Continue reading >>

    Dog diabetes is nearly always similar to human Type 1 Diabetes, so start from that. Don't worry about weight at first, just try to get your dog's blood glucose under control. Learn to test BG at home and find a vet who supports this. If the insulin you are using doesn't keep blood sugar low, check out online information on canine diabetes for one that will, along with appropriate diet and other meds if necessary, and discuss with your vet.
    All the best,

Book Review: Training Your Diabetic Alert Dog

Training Your Diabetic Alert Dog is a clear, easy-to-read resource for anyone training a dog to alert to changes in blood glucose levels. It offers some general information, such as what it is like to live with a service dog, advice on choosing the right dog, and how to find a qualified trainer. The majority of the book, however, gives step-by-step training protocols with just the right amount of information. It was hard to put the book down; I found it very compelling. I wanted to know: How do you train for alerts? How does a dog learn to recognize the scent? What does the dog need to learn to be able to do night alerts or car alerts? The authors, Rita Martinez and Sue Barns, are among those who have pioneered diabetic alert dog (DAD) training and protocols. Along with assisting clients in training their dogs, Martinez is a frequent speaker with trainer groups and service dog organizations looking to learn more about training DADs. Barns is an experienced service dog trainer, and the founder of the Diabetic Alert Dog program at Assistance Dogs of the West. With clicker training protocols throughout, the authors’ positive methods match the positive tone of the book. They recommen Continue reading >>
