Soy Consumption Is Not Protective Against Diabetes In Hawaii: The Multiethnic Cohort.

Soy Consumption Is Not Protective Against Diabetes In Hawaii: The Multiethnic Cohort.

Soy consumption is not protective against diabetes in Hawaii: the Multiethnic Cohort. Morimoto Y, et al. Eur J Clin Nutr. 2011. Department of Epidemiology, Cancer Research Center of Hawaii, University of Hawaii, 1236 Lauhala Street, Honolulu, HI 96813, USA. [email protected] Eur J Clin Nutr. 2011 Feb;65(2):279-82. doi: 10.1038/ejcn.2010.228. Epub 2010 Oct 6. Based on the hypothesis that soy consumption may improve glucose tolerance, we examined the association of soy intake with diabetes risk in the Hawaii component of the Multiethnic Cohort. Among 29 719 Caucasian, 35 141 Japanese American and 10 484 Native Hawaiian men and women, 8564 incident diabetes cases were identified during 14 years of follow-up. Cox regression was used to calculate hazard ratios while adjusting for known confounders with stratifications by sex, ethnicity and weight status. We observed no protective effect of soy food consumption on diabetes risk in this population, which has a wide range of soy intakes though lower than in Asian populations. Indeed, higher soy food intake was associated with a weakly elevated diabetes risk across ethnic groups; the higher risk was limited to overweight and obese individuals. The current findings do not support a protective effect of modest levels of soy food consumption against diabetes. Continue reading >>

Uncontrolled diabetes can lead to acute life-threatening events such as diabetic ketoacidosis and hyperosmolar coma.7 Gum disease is about twice as common in young adults with diabetes.7 People with diabetes are more susceptible to bacterial or fungal infections2 and their ability to recover is often compromised. For example, they are more likely to die with pneumonia or influenza than people who do not have diabetes.7 Diabetics over 60 years are 2 to 3 times more likely to report an inability to walk one-quarter of a mile, climb stairs, or do housework compared with non-diabetics in their age group.7 Diabetic are twice as likely to have depression, which can complicate their disease management. In addition, depression is associated with a 60 percent increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes.7 Patients with diabetes have an increased risk of developing a myriad of other problems like muscle infarctions, Dupuytrens contracture, adhesive capsulitis, and sclerodactyly. They may also develop ophthalmologic disease unrelated to diabetic retinopathy like cataracts, glaucoma, corneal abrasions, optic neuropathy; hepatobiliary diseases like nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, cirrhosis, gallstones; dermatologic disease like tinea infections, lower-extremity ulcers, diabetic dermopathy, necrobiosis lipoidica diabeticorum, diabetic systemic sclerosis, vitiligo, granuloma annulare, acanthosis nigricans; depression and dementia are also common.2 Premature death among people with diabetes is at least double their peers of the same age without diabetes.7 T2DM is often a silent disease that presents only upon screening. It can present with hyperglycemic symptoms such as increased frequency and volume of urine, thirst, and orthostatic hypotension (dizziness accompanying positional ch Continue reading >>

Fdip - Sweet Success Hawaii Diabetes In Pregnancy Program

Fdip - Sweet Success Hawaii Diabetes In Pregnancy Program

Congratulations, you're pregnant! We now know that the key to a healthy pregnancy for a woman with gestational diabetes is keeping blood glucose (sugar) in the target range. During pregnancy -- usuallyat around 28 weeks or later --many women are diagnosed with gestational diabetes. A diagnosis of gestational diabetes doesn't mean that you had diabetes before you conceived, or that you will have diabetes aftergiving birth. But it's important to follow your doctor's advice regarding blood glucose (blood sugar) levels so you and your baby both remain healthy. To keep your blood glucose in target range you need a diabetes treatment plan that keeps meals and exercise, and if needed medication in balance. You will need to check your blood glucose and keep a record of your results. With your blood glucose in the target range and good medical care, your chances of a trouble-free pregnancy and a healthy baby are as good as they are for a woman without diabetes. Your obstetrician referred you to our program. Our diabetes education program along with our maternal fetal specialist (perinatologist) will help you successfully manage your blood glucose. The initial education session is usually a group session of three to five women and will take about four hours. The diabetes nurse educator and dietitian will teach the class. You will be given an individualized meal plan and a blood glucose meter and will be taught how to use it to check your blood glucose everyday. After the initial session, we will stay in contact with you by phone, fax or e-mail on a weekly basis in order to get your blood glucose readings. These blood glucose readings will be discussed with our maternal fetal specialist. We will get back to you with our doctor's recommendations. This will be done weekly until del Continue reading >>

Diabetes Care, Education Center

Family nurse practitioner with the Diabetes Management and Education Center at The Queens Medical Center-West Oahu Where did you receive your schooling and training? My bachelors degree in psychology is from University of Pennsylvania, my masters in nursing is from Pace University in New York, and my Ph.D. in nursing is from University of Hawaii at Manoa. I am board certified in advanced diabetes management by American Association of Diabetes Educators. I am trained as a lifestyle coach and facilitator for PILI Ohana, a lifestyle intervention, and I have CDSMP (Chronic Disease Self-Management Program) training from Stanford University. I was a nurse practitioner in primary care for 34 years and, now, a diabetes specialist for three years. I am a family nurse practitioner with the Diabetes Management and Education Center at The Queens Medical Center-West Oahu What drew you to working in the field of diabetes care? My father had type 2 diabetes, so I saw up close how hard it was for him to change his diet. Coming to Hawaii, I saw so many patients struggling with diabetes. I was drawn to research in diabetes because of its outcome measure of the hemoglobin A1c that provides a good average measure of how people are doing. I also thought if I specialized in diabetes, I would learn how to prevent diabetes in myself and my family. What are the main functions of Queens-West Oahus Diabetes Education Program? We strive to reduce the burden of diabetes in West Oahu communities. We provide education to individuals and in classes with a team of educators, including myself, a nurse and a nutritionist who also has a degree in kinesiology. I do medical management of patients and can prescribe medications and order tests while keeping the primary care provider informed about progress. Continue reading >>

Diabetes Awareness, Education, And Screening Project

Diabetes Awareness, Education, And Screening Project

The purpose of this federally-funded collaborative effort of the UH Cooperative Extension Service, Washington State University Cooperative Extension, New Mexico State University Cooperative Extension, and the Joslin Diabetes Center is to develop and implement a diabetes awareness education program for underserved populations. This project aims to increase people's awareness of diabetes and key indicators of risk factors of complications from diabetes. In Hawaii, this project is being conducted initially on the Big Island of Hawaii with plans to expand to the neighbor islands. In collaboration with local agencies and community-based programs, the project is reaching adults with diabetes who have limited access to health care and diabetes education. At a two-hour session, project participants are screened for four of the five recommended medical tests (through fingerstick blood and urine samples) and then participate in an educational session, " On the Road to Living Well with Diabetes ," to learn about these tests. An evaluation interview with each participant after three months measures changes in diabetes knowledge and self-care behavior. This project has also partnered with the Diabetes Network of Hawaii County and the Diabetes Education and Counseling Center in Hilo. Healthy and tasty local-style recipes are demonstrated weekly at the Center to compliment the myriad of classes offered for persons with diabetes and their families. For more information about this project, contact the project coordinator, Julia Zee, County Extension Educator, at [email protected] or at the UH Cooperative Extension Service, 875 Komohana St., Hilo, HI, 96720, Ph.
