Diabetes Facts Rogers Drug Store Modesto, Ca (209) 522-5229

Home Health & Wellness Diabetes Facts Diabetes is a disease in which the body does not produce or properly use insulin. Insulin is a hormone that is needed to convert sugar, starches and other food into energy needed for daily life. The cause of diabetes continues to be a mystery, although both genetics and environmental factors such as obesity and lack of exercise appear to play roles. Diabetes mellitus refers to a group of diseases that affect how your body uses blood sugar (glucose). Glucose is vital to your health because it's an important source of energy for the cells that make up your muscles and tissues. It's also your brain's main source of fuel. Type 1 diabetes is usually diagnosed in children and young adults, and was previously known as juvenile diabetes. Only 5% of people with diabetes have this form of the disease. In type 1 diabetes, the body does not produce insulin. Insulin is a hormone that is needed to convert sugar, starches and other food into energy needed for daily life. With the help of insulin therapy and other treatments, even young children can learn to manage their condition and live long, healthy lives. Unlike people with type 1 diabetes, the bodies of people with type 2 diabetes make insulin. But either their pancreas does not make enough insulin or the body cannot use the insulin well enough. This is called insulin resistance. When there isn't enough insulin or the insulin is not used as it should be, glucose (sugar) can't get into the body's cells. When glucose builds up in the blood instead of going into cells, the body's cells are not able to function properly. Other problems associated with the buildup of glucose in the blood include: Damage to the body. Over time, the high glucose levels in the blood can damage the nerves and small b Continue reading >>

Greek yogurt has taken a huge chunk of the Québec yogurt market and now comes in a wide variety of brands and flavours. Creamy and high in protein Greek yogurt differs from "regular" yogurt by its creamy texture. The difference is due to the manufacturing process, which removes a portion of the liquid from the yogurt, leaving a solid, high-protein residue. For the same portion size, Greek yogurt has twice the protein of regular yogurt. This process also gives the yogurt a creamy taste even though it is made from skim milk. A premium price Because liquid is removed, the production of Greek yogurt requires three to four times the amount of milk as traditional yogurt, which justifies its higher price. High nutrient value The technique Greek-yogurt manufacturers use to remove water from the milk before producing the yogurt has an effect on its nutritional value. For example, the traditional drip technique results in the loss of some of the calcium and lactose contained in the milk, whereas a different technique preserves these two nutrients. The table below compares various plain Greek yogurt brands on the market. The table uses the "fat free" variety when available, or the lowest-fat version if a company does not produce a “fat free” product.

The 3 Phases Of The Diabetes App Market Development And Why Publishers Continue To Struggle

The 3 Phases Of The Diabetes App Market Development And Why Publishers Continue To Struggle

The diabetes app market has long been the go-to of mobile health app developers, but the uptake among People With Diabetes (PWDs) only recently showed some traction. The reasons for the low success rates can be explained through the 3 diabetes app concept development stages: apps as stand-alone tools, apps as diabetes device add-ons, and as integrated personalized care platforms. PWDs are generally underwhelmed with the limited functionality of the apps, and the lack of integration and data interoperability on the market. Today, device integration partnerships between device manufacturers and digital diabetes care platform providers have emerged and show a great promise to improve the current market status. According to the 2016 mHealth App Developer Economics study, 73% of mobile health app developers believe that diabetes is the therapy field which holds the highest market potential. In 2016, the addressable target group- diagnosed people with diabetes (PWDs) who own a smartphone- reached 135.5M people globally. The competition among publishers has been growing for the past 8 years, since the Apple App Store launched. In 2016, the number of diabetes care apps on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store reached nearly 1,800. Nevertheless, these publishers are yet to achieve major success- only 3.3% of the addressable target group have become monthly active app users in 2016. Though this percentage has grown significantly from 2.2% in 2014, publishers have not yet achieved a breakthrough despite the great hopes and promises. So, what are the reasons behind it? The market developed in 3 phases, during which publishers introduced multiple app use cases to PWDs, but limited functionality and a lack of data interoperability left PWDs underwhelmed. During the early years of Continue reading >>

Bd Briight: Diabetes Expert On The Appstore

Hello BD Briight app developers, This app needs to have a section where I can add specifically what I are for the day (it can be free style so I can add what I need to add as far as what foods and portions). Also, it needs a section where I can add how much insulin I took and what other meds I took throughout the day. And if I forgot to add something yesterday, I should be able to go back to that date (which at this time its not allowing me to do). This would make the app more helpful and effective in managing my diabetes. Thank you!

Inability To Store Fat Safely Increases Diabetes Risk

Inability To Store Fat Safely Increases Diabetes Risk

Inability to store fat safely increases diabetes risk These are external links and will open in a new window Being unable to store excess fat safely in the body increases the risk of type 2 diabetes, heart attacks and strokes, Cambridge University research suggests. A study of 200,000 people showed that those with a variation in their genetic make-up were less likely to deposit fat under the skin in the lower body. This can lead the body to become resistant to the hormone insulin. The scientists said their findings explain why even slim people who eat too much and are inactive are at risk. And they added that a healthy diet and physical exercise is important, regardless of body weight. Insulin is a hormone that controls levels of blood sugar. When the body becomes resistant to it, levels of blood sugars and lipids rise, increasing the risk of diabetes and heart disease - but no-one is sure why insulin resistance happens and why some people become resistant when overweight, and others do not. International figures show that 43% of people who develop type 2 diabetes are obese, 43% are overweight and 14% have a healthy weight. The Cambridge study, published in Nature Genetics, found that a large proportion of the population has inherited some of 53 separate genetic variants that inhibit the storage of fat safely under the skin, particularly in the lower half of the body. Their fat is more likely to end up in the bloodstream or stored in and around the body's central organs. The study said people who have more of this genetic material are at much greater risk of type 2 diabetes - no matter what their BMI (body mass index) is. In the 20% of the population with the highest number of these genetic variants, their risk of diabetes rose by 39% compared to the 20% of the populat Continue reading >>

A Diabetes Test You Can Do Yourself

A Diabetes Test You Can Do Yourself

Are you urinating more often, feeling very thirsty, hungry, or tired? Maybe you’re losing weight. You may have type 2 diabetes. To find out, you can make an appointment with your doctor and have your blood tested for the condition. Or you can go to the drug store, buy a blood glucose meter, and give yourself a diabetes test. An estimated 40 percent of adults with type 2 diabetes don’t know they have it, which means they aren’t getting treatment that could protect them from very serious health problems down the road, such as heart disease, stroke, blindness, and kidney failure. The best option is to go to a doctor if you’re having symptoms of diabetes. But if you’re reluctant to do that, for whatever reason, the next best thing is to buy an over-the-counter diabetes test kit. "If you have a family history of diabetes, are obese, or have high blood pressure, you should test yourself for diabetes, if your doctor hasn’t already done so," says Marvin M. Lipman, M.D., Consumer Reports' chief medical adviser. "By being a proactive person, you might save yourself a lot of grief in the future.” Blood glucose meters can be purchased without a prescription. Models in our Ratings of more than two dozen devices cost $10 to $75. They usually come with 10 lancets, but you might have to buy a pack of test strips separately, which can cost $18 and up; check the package to see what it includes. If the meter doesn’t come with strips, make sure you buy a pack made for that model or you’ll get inaccurate results. Most models come with batteries. Here’s what you need to do next: Fast overnight. Don’t have anything to eat or drink (except water) for at least 8 hours, then test yourself first thing in the morning, before breakfast. Follow directions. Read the manual to ma Continue reading >>

Shopping List For Diabetics

Control Type 2 Diabetes, Shed Fat Our Shopping List for Diabetics is based on the Pritikin Eating Plan, regarded worldwide as among the healthiest diets on earth. The Pritikin Program has been documented in more than 100 studies in peer-reviewed medical journals to prevent and control many of our nation’s leading killers – heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, metabolic syndrome, and obesity as well as type 2 diabetes. If you’ve recently been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, pay special attention. Research on newly diagnosed type 2 diabetics coming to the Pritikin Longevity Center illustrate how profoundly beneficial early intervention can be. Scientists from UCLA followed 243 people in the early stages of diabetes (not yet on medications). Within three weeks of coming to Pritikin, their fasting blood sugar (glucose) plummeted on average from 160 to 124. Research has also found that the Pritikin Program reduces fasting insulin by 25 to 40%. Shopping List for Diabetics – More Features Here’s another big plus to our Shopping List for Diabetics. In addition to icons that are diabetes-focused like “sugar free,” this list uses icons like “low cholesterol” and “low sodium” because many people with diabetes are working to control not just diabetes but related conditions like high cholesterol levels and high blood pressure.
