Type 2 Diabetes Prevention

Overview More than one in three American adults have prediabetes and are at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes, a serious health condition that can lead to heart attack and stroke. Surprisingly, nearly 90 percent of people with prediabetes don't even know they have it. But prediabetes can be reversed through weight loss, diet changes and increased physical activity. The first step to reversing the condition is evaluating one's personal risk so that they can take action as soon as possible. In the first-ever national prediabetes awareness campaign, new PSAs assert that no matter how busy life may be, no one is excused from prediabetes. The campaign encourages people to learn their risk of type 2 diabetes by taking a short online test at DoIHavePrediabetes.org, which also features information about prediabetes as well as lifestyle programs and tips to help people reverse their risk.

    Good or Bad Foods

    I recently got diagnosed as a type 2 diabetic. I am still a bit confused on what to eat and what not to eat. I have scheduled my diabetes class, but it is weeks away. Is there a good site that has a list of foods or meals good to eat and bad. I often have question wether a food is ok to eat. Like is shrimp, light ice cream, oranges, peaches or plums. This is all new and just wondered if anything is out there.
    thanks,

    HI medik! Welcome to Diabetes Daily! I'm sorry about your diagnosis....there are lots of nice people here to support you and offer suggestions. What you need to do is try certain foods and see how it effects your blood sugar. Everyone is so different in what sends their sugars high.....I know to start out, people suggest staying away from all white foods: white flour bread, rice, pasta, chips, cookies ,etc. If you eat bread, make sure it is whole grain. Pretty much no white food except cauliflower. Fruits tend to send alot of type 2 diabetics sugar high, but test and see what you can and can't tolerate. by testing I mean, test your sugar before eating, eat and then test 2 hours later and see what your sugar is. You want your sugar 2 hours after eating to be no higher than about 160 mgl. That's a good start. I know others will jump in with suggestions. Check out the link to the newly diagnosed and that should help too!

    I heard too that eating a fat or a protein with the fruit will slow down the absorbtion of the glucose so either nuts or cheese will work wonder with certain fruits, by the way welcome to the forum.

====================================================== SUBSCRIBE TO MY CHANNEL PLEASE.... https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWDy... ===================================================== How to Calculate Your Heart Disease Risk There are certain risk factors that affect your chances of developing heart disease. Some of these factors are beyond your control, such as getting older, being male, or having a family history of heart disease; however, other factors you may be able to control, including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity, your amount of physical activity, and whether or not you smoke. In order to calculate your risk of developing heart disease, you will need to look at several different parameters and calculate the correlating numbers. You will then add up your score to see how it reflects to your risk of developing heart disease. Part 1 : Calculating Risk Factors 1.Visit your doctor for a physical and lab work. In order to calculate your risk of developing heart disease, you will have to test certain aspects of your health. Your doctor should be able to do this during a normal appointment. She will also draw a sample of your blood and test the levels of certain substances. 2.Consider your age. Heart disease is relatively uncommon in people younger than 30 years old but the risk increases with age for both men and women. Women run a slightly lower risk of heart disease than men of the same age group. 3.Add in your LDL levels. LDL cholesterol are lipids that are bad for your heart and blood vessels. They are deposited on the walls of your coronary arteries (blood vessels in the heart) and cause plaque to form. This plaque impedes blood flow and can lead to heart disease. 4.Factor in HDL cholesterol. HDL cholesterol is known as good cholesterol because it helps to lower your risk of cardiovascular diseases. It is considered good because it transports bad lipids back to the liver, where they are flushed from the body. 5.Consider your blood pressure as it relates to heart disease. High blood pressure is a major risk factor for coronary heart disease. 6.Account for possible diabetes. Diabetes is strongly related to heart disease. In fact, diabetics are twice as likely as non-diabetics to develop heart disease at some point in their lifetime. Part 2 : Subtracting for Protective Factors 1.Exercise regularly. Some behaviors like exercise can give you moderate protection against heart disease. Being physically active can lower your blood pressure, help to lower your cholesterol levels, and reduce your chance of having a heart attack or stroke. 2.Stop smoking. Smoking is not only terrible for your lungs but also increases your chances of getting heart disease. 3.Factor in diet. Diet is another mildly protective factor against heart disease. Put simply, the foods that you eat can control blood pressure, diabetes, weight gain, and high cholesterol. Part 3 : Assessing the Results 1.Add up your points. You have now scored all of the parameters for risk and prevention. Add up your points from the previous sections and see your final score. 2.Calculate your risk of heart disease if you are male. Take your point total and then find the corresponding percentage. This percentage represents the risk that you have of developing heart disease or of experiencing a cardiac event in the next 10 years. The points-risk relationship is different for males and females. 3.Calculate your risk if you are female. If you are a female, a total point score of less than -2 points represents a 1% risk of heart disease in the next 10 years. 4.Make changes to lower your risk. If you have a 20% or higher chance of having a heart condition in the next 10 years, you should seriously consider making some lifestyle changes. How to Calculate Your Heart Disease Risk. What are the six main risk factors for cardiovascular disease? Why is heart disease so deadly? Who is most at risk for a heart attack?

Awareness Campaign For Type 2 Diabetes, Heart Disease Risk Launches

Boehringer Ingelheim and Eli Lilly are launching a campaign dubbed “For Your SweetHeart” that aims to raise awareness about the risk for heart disease in patients with type 2 diabetes, according to a press release from the companies. A recent national survey that included more than 500 Americans with type 2 diabetes patients found that 52% did not understand that they are at increased risk for heart disease and related life-threatening events, such as heart attack and stroke, according to the release. The campaign encourages people with type 2 diabetes to talk to their health care provider and loved ones about their heart disease risk. The campaign also includes a quiz for patients to learn more about their risk. “The truth is cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death among people with diabetes, but there is hope. The earlier people with diabetes understand this risk, the sooner they become engaged and take action to help reduce their chances of heart attacks, strokes or even death,” Paul Fonteyne, president and CEO of Boehringer Ingelheim, said in the release. “Educating the public about this important health crisis is just another component of our responsibil Continue reading >>

    My hubby has diabetes (type 2/Syndrome X, i.e. body produces insulin, but doesn't use it effectively thus high blood sugar readings), recently woke up with a ulcer on his foot. Does anyone know of a way of treating it?
    This is his first ulcer. I have been slowly changing his diet, to avoid rapid detox. For example, in the last two weeks, introduced yoghurt with live cultures, reduced intake of bread and more salads.
    Any help would be truly appreciated.
    Thankyou.

  2. Jay Green

    Sea salt, epsom salt, olive oil scrub three times a week to the entire foot and massage of the area and around the area, but avoid actively moving that pooled blood upwards towards the heart. Just massage to increase blood movement and white blood cell movement to the source of infection.
    Increase exercise by a simple, brisk 20 min. walk once or twice a day and push off with the balls of the feet with each step...heel, roll up to the ball, push until those calf muscles are flexing with each step. Increase fluid, Vit. C and folic acid intake.
    That's all about as simple as you can make it and all VERY effective. Let air get to the area each evening, elevate the foot to increase venous return to the heart. Keep doing the exercise and water even after the ulcer has healed to prevent further incidence of same.

The rest of the ad is a pitch for the JDRF, mentioning how diabetes tests the patience of every PWD and our families and impacts our outlook, but how those at the 42-year-old organization are also testing themselves every day to help fund research that could prevent, treat, and possibly cure type 1 diabetes. So that someday, "we won't have to."

    i was diagnosed with PCOS and taking metformin... im losing 1kg every day. ive been taking metformin for 3days now and lose 3kgs. my doctor prescribed me take metformin for 3months... im afraid that ill become underweight..

  2. TARAFOFARA

    Metformin has done some wonderful things for me but weight loss is not one. My endocrinologist did not want to put me on it since I didn't appear to have any metabolic dysfunction. I asked if I could try it anyway. Two years later the calcified cysts on my ovaries are gone and my body pelt has disappeared in some areas or become very fine. My arm hair is normal now. I have been on birth control and spironolactone since 2001 for PCOS symptoms but I wasnt diagnosed until a few years ago. I just had my 6th month blood work done for my endocrinologist and all my levels were good. Its so nice not to have elevated testosterone and be told its because I am fat.

    Metformin helps you lose weight as long as you meet a certain set of conditions. For example, if you're type 1 and have good blood sugar control, Metformin can help you lose weight. If you're type 2 and you don't have good blood sugar control, Metformin will not help you lose weight (though it will help lower your blood sugar).
