Apple Picks 13 Apps For People With Diabetes

Apple Picks 13 Apps For People With Diabetes

Apple periodically updates its app store with lists of apps for particular groups of people. Even as the new iOS 8, with a built in Health app, goes into beta, Apple has added a new list: "Apple's Apps for Diabetics." According to the CDC's 2011 fact sheet, diabetes affects 25.8 million people, or 8.3 percent of the US population. The apps on Apple's list aren't all from the US, and they don't all target diabetes specifically. While many are tracking and management apps for blood glucose and insulin levels, others are more general purpose apps for eating specific diets, which people with diabetes could benefit from. The list includes mostly consumer-facing apps but one app for doctors, as well as one for kids and one for pregnant women with diabetes. The list has some overlap with the list of top-grossing diabetes apps Research2Guidance released in March, but app developer Azumio, which Research2Guidance identified as the market leader, has no apps on Apple's list. Read on for 13 apps Apple has highlighted for its users with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes. Diabetik by UglyApps (free) This British-made diabetes app raised $11,600 on Kickstarter in February 2013. It's a free app for diabetes management that focuses on quick data entry and aesthetically designed interactive charts, as well as reminders that can trigger either at a particular time or in particular location. The app helps people with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes monitor how much and how often they’re eating, their blood glucose levels, and whether they’ve taken their medication. Diabetes in Check by Everyday Health (free) Diabetes in Check, from the recently-IPO'd Everyday Health is a type 2 diabetes management app that features a wide range of tools. It includes diabetes coaching designed by a certified d Continue reading >>

Seven-day Type 2 Diabetes Meal Plan

Seven-day Type 2 Diabetes Meal Plan

Eating a diabetes-friendly diet can help keep your blood sugar levels under control. But it can be difficult to stick to a regular meal plan — unless you have a plan in place. Check out these 21 delicious, diabetes-friendly recipes to use for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Remember to stay within your carbohydrate allowance by noting the carb content and serving size of the recipes. Also, be sure to balance your meals with lean protein and healthy plant fats. Breakfast: Cream Cheese-Stuffed French Toast This may sound too decadent for breakfast, but paired with scrambled egg whites, it can fit into a diabetes-friendly meal plan. Whole grain toast will help ensure you get your daily fiber too. Lunch: Salmon Salad with White Beans Salmon is one of the best sources of omega-3 fatty acids, and is also a delicious topper to workday salad. Dinner: Cuban-Marinated Sirloin Kabobs with Grilled Asparagus Spice things up with this flavorful skewer. Dried herbs and spices are a great way to pack a punch of flavor without adding unnecessary calories and fat. Breakfast: Apple Pie Oatmeal with Greek Yogurt Who wouldn’t like a slice of pie for breakfast? This oatmeal will leave your kitchen smelling like the flavors of fall, and your stomach happy and satisfied. Add some extra plain Greek yogurt on top for more protein. Lunch: Turkey-Cranberry Wraps Turkey and cranberry sauce isn’t just for Thanksgiving! This is an easy grab-and-go lunch that even your kids will enjoy. Note: This recipe may not be appropriate for all people with type 2 diabetes, because it contains 60 grams of carbs per serving. You can adjust the amount of cranberry sauce to lower the carb count. Dinner: Cilantro-Lime Tilapia with Spinach and Tomatoes Take a trip to the tropics with this fast fish dish. Breakfast Continue reading >>

from the Author of The Metabolism Miracle, The Metabolism Miracle Cookbook, and The Diabetes Miracle Thanksgiving Tips from Diane Kress: (Pssst: Its NOT the turkey that causes post-feast crash) Thanksgiving is an American holiday built around a traditional meal that most often consists of turkey and a plethora of high carbohydrate side dishes and desserts. Although many consider the tryptophan in turkey meat responsible for the post-feast nap.. the sleepiness is really caused by an overdose of carbohydrate foods including potatoes, stuffing or dressing, corn, sweet potatoes or yams, breads, and desserts (pumpkin or pecan pie and ice cream, anyone?). A typical Thanksgiving meal can easily contain 175 grams of carbohydrate (12 servings at one meal). Over 60% of US adults (most unknowingly) have insulin imbalance. Consuming an excess of carbohydrate foods cause the majority of adults to experience a rapid rise in blood sugar and a resultant over- release of insulin. This excess insulin causes the high blood sugar generated by the carb feast to be over-ushered into fat cells. About an hour after the meal, the blood sugar has roller- coastered from very high to lower than normal. These crazy blood sugar swings are responsible for the post meal crash. After the meal, the majority of adults feel wiped out with fatigue, bloated around the middle, have light-headedness or a vague headache, experience brain fog, and need a nap. Those with diabetes deal with high blood sugar readings that also trigger these uncomfortable symptoms. Thanksgiving is often celebrated as a gathering of family and friends to share food, give thanks, and watch football. With some simple tweaks to the menu, everyone can enjoy a healthy and delicious meal as well as spend quality time with each otherawake Continue reading >>

10 Everyday Superfoods

10 Everyday Superfoods

Easy-to-eat, easy-to-find, everyday "super" foods to keep eating healthy simple and delicious. Pictured Recipe: Strawberry & Yogurt Parfait Superfoods are multi-taskersfoods brimming with various disease-fighting nutrients, usually without providing too many calories and delivered in a delicious form (think: blueberries). But some foods deemed "super" are a little too exotic to fit into our everyday diets (ahem, goji berry?!) or somethinglike, say, sardinesthat you'd only have once in a while. Healthy? Yes. Would you eat them every day? Probably not. And while we're all for trying new foods, especially the super healthy kind, it's nice to know that you can stock up on superfood staples every week and they'll be easy to fit into your diet. So, here are 10 easy-to-eat, easy-to-find, everyday superfoods to keep eating healthy simple. Pictured Recipe: Berry-Almond Smoothie Bowl All berries are great sources of fibera nutrient that most Americans don't get enough of. Fiber helps keep your digestive system healthy and working properly (ahem...) and is good for your heart and your waistline, since it's so filling. All berries are good for you so be sure to mix it up. In the winter, when berries aren't in season, grab frozen (without sweeteners) which are great for smoothies, oatmeal, or thawed in yogurt. Raspberries boast the most fiber at 8 grams per cupand also contain ellagic acid, a compound with anti-cancer properties. The same amount of blueberries has half the fiber (4 grams), but is packed with anthocyanins, antioxidants that may help keep memory sharp as you age. A cup of strawberries contains 3 grams of fiber, but more than a full day's recommended dose of skin-firming vitamin C. A source of high-quality protein, eggs might give your meal more staying power too. One Continue reading >>
