Better To Prevent Than To Cure: Diabetes And The Italian Diet

Better to Prevent Than to Cure: Diabetes and the Italian diet Better to Prevent Than to Cure: Diabetes and the Italian diet When I say four cheese lasagna, gnocchi with gorgonzola sauce, risotto, tiramisu and canoli siciliani, what directly comes to mind? To most of us Italians, these foods are a staple in any Italian kitchen. Not only do these foods satisfy our palate, they also are extremely high in carbohydrates which break down into sugar. It’s not our fault that we have one of the best cuisines in the world! People from all over can vouch for that, but what also should be kept in mind is what repercussions these foods have on our body over time. On a worldwide scale, 285 million people are diagnosed with diabetes. Not to mention the further 7 million people developing it each year. It is estimated that this number will reach 438 million by 2030. That’s an alarming increase of people that will be hit with this disease.

    Hi:
    I'm new to the board and I have a question. I have been on Advandament for the last six months and have suffered with fluid retention. So, my doctor has changed my medicine to Januvia. I have been taking it since Saturday and I have noticed that my BS are actually a bit higher than normal.
    Does anyone else out there take Januvia and would you be able to tell me how long it took before you noticed a difference in your BS?
    My doctor told me that he could add the metformin if my levels were still high, but I want to give the Januvia a chance before I do that.
    Thanks!

    I just started Januvia ... 2 weeks ago .. since I was having problems with Actos. I have not had more than two or thre normal readings since I started. The Actos got my A1C down to 5 but the fluid retention and weight gain was troubling.
    I'm insulin resistant so I'm not sure if Januvia is the right drug for me. Are you taking anything in addition to the Januvia?
    I know it's a very new drug - has anyone had success with it?

    I've been on Januvia for 10 days now and it hasn't worked for me yet.
    However, a friend of mine has been on it for a month and hesaid that it took about day 8 for it to work for him. He said his BS is around 110 now.
