Eat Fruit To Beat Diabetes: Daily Intake Can 'slash Your Risk Of The Condition'

Eat Fruit To Beat Diabetes: Daily Intake Can 'slash Your Risk Of The Condition'

Scientists at Oxford University have discovered that greater consumption of fresh fruit is linked with a lower incidence of diabetes, as well as a reduction in complications among people who already have the disease. Those who eat fruit daily have a 12 per cent lower risk of developing the disease. And researchers said the news can be positive for those who already have the condition, with regular fruit eaters 17 per cent less likely to die of it. Last night medical experts welcomed the findings. Dr Emily Burns, Diabetes UK's Research Communications Manager, said: "Fresh fruit has many health benefits and it's a myth that people with diabetes should not eat it. The type of sugar in whole fruit is different to the added sugar we should avoid. "We know that a balanced diet is beneficial for overall health and preventing Type 2 diabetes." The benefits of eating fruit and vegetables are well established. However the sugar content of fruit has led to uncertainty about associated risks of diabetes and vascular complications. Now, after studying more than half a million people, the Oxford research team have concluded it is beneficial - the first study to make such a direct link. The findings, published in the journal PLOS Medicine, showed people who eat plenty of fresh fruit had a lower risk of developing diabetes in comparison with other participants. The team recruited more than 500,000 adults from ten widely different areas across China - where many people still eat little fruit - and tracked their health for seven years. Study leader Dr Huaidong Du said: "Among individuals who were free of diabetes at the start of the study daily consumption of fresh fruit was associated with a 12 per cent lower relative risk of developing it, compared to never or rarely consuming fresh fr Continue reading >>

Diabetes: Daily Foot Care

Diabetes: Daily Foot Care

Your browser does not support the video tag. No compatible source was found for this media. When you've got diabetes, the nerves and blood vessels in your feet can get damaged. Your feet may feel numb, and injuries may take longer to heal. It's important to check your feet every day. Here's how. You'll want to give everything a close look in good lighting. A hand mirror may be useful. Check every part: the tops, the soles, the heels, and between the toes. Some problems need a doctor's care right away. For others, it's okay to make an appointment with your doctor as soon as you can. And you can treat some problems yourself. Here's what to look for. Look for the most serious problems first. If you have signs of an infection, like redness, oozing, or warmth or a large sore... Don't try to treat it yourself. Call your doctor today. If you feel tingling or numbness in your feet, it could be caused by nerve damage. Make an appointment with your doctor as soon as you can. If you have corns or calluses, don't cut them, file them down, or do anything that may break the skin. Just leave them alone until the next time you see your doctor. Finally, look for blisters or broken skin. Never pop a blister, and treat any little cut or scratch with care. Gently wash it with mild soap, and cover it with a bandage. As long as it doesn't get infected, you can tell your doctor about it at your next visit. Checking your feet every day is an important step in keeping your feet healthy and living better with diabetes. Continue reading >>

Diabetes Daily Grind

Diabetes Daily Grind

Now that National Diabetes Awareness Month has wrapped up, what better topic to write about than the impact the diabetes online community (#DOC) has had on my life. It has been clear time and time again how I did not fully appreciate the value of this random group of souls until I tapped in. The past four years have led me to this life-changing realization. Just before my 30th Diaversary, I met Ryan Fightmaster, a fellow T1D. It was the first time I felt comfortable sharing what life was like with diabetes. He got it, and every time we got together, it was a therapy session of sorts. We knew there was more to this disease than what we were getting from our endocrinologist’s office. No one was talking about going to prom, running a marathon, dating, and all of the other normal things folks do. With this newfound T1D friendship, it was time to take action. So I created a blog, DiabetesDailyGrind.com, to share the real life, which has since grown to include guest writers from across the globe. After a year or so, we thought some of our adventures might be better told in person, so we rallied up the courage and launched a podcast. The Real Life Diabetes Podcast is inspiring fulfilled diabetes lives through honest support and practical tips. We saw an opportunity to share our humorous stories, transform lessons learned into how-to guides, and produce a type 1 and type 2 diabetes podcast to inspire folks with the disease to get the most out of life. By getting at the heart of what matters, we hope to offer a message that fills a much-needed void. We’re not experts, just people doing our best and starting conversations. We often share with newly diagnosed T1Ds or the parents of T1D kiddos the importance of knowing other people with diabetes (PWD). This might seem simple, b Continue reading >>

Real Life Diabetes Podcast By Diabetes Daily Grind

Real Life Diabetes Podcast By Diabetes Daily Grind

I enjoyed a new diabetes podcast today and wanted to spread the word about it. It’s the Real Life Diabetes Podcast by Diabetes Daily Grind. Amber & Ryan at DDG are fun and laid back. They promise occasional explicit language and content that may not always be suitable for children. But it doesn’t take long (less than a minute) to see that they’re also serious when it comes to self-improvement and living better with diabetes, and helping others do so, too. More reasons to like it? The opening theme song is pretty awesome… Tell me sugar-mama what’s your A1C, are you into endocrinology… And I think the closing has a kazoo. But what really sold me was when Amber burped into the microphone. Let ‘er rip, sis! Seriously though – great job, you guys! I’m already looking forward to the next episode! Get posts by email?

No More Worrying About Insulin – Diabetes Daily Review

No More Worrying About Insulin – Diabetes Daily Review

“How often do you wonder whether the insulin you have with you has spoiled due to varying temperatures? I know I worry about the insulin that stays in my testing case, whether I’m traveling or even just going out for the day. Especially when you get to the bottom of the vial and the insulin just doesn’t seem as potent as it did when it was first opened. MedAngel hopes to help alleviate some of our worries with their temperature sensor. It’s a small device, just about the length of an insulin vial. It easily slips into any case or bag, where ever you prefer to keep your insulin when traveling. At $49.00, it’s well worth it if you are one to be worried about how temperatures can affect your medications.” Sarah, T1D Sugabetic.me Continue reading >>
