Conventional Wisdom Fails To Produce Benefit In Type 2 Diabetes

The only real solution, according to this naturopathic doctor, is a concerted effort of diet, lifestyle and proper dietary supplementation. We are nearing a tipping point in the realization that the over reliance on drug therapy in treating chronic diseases like type 2 diabetes is literally a dead end. A new study published by Mayo Clinic researchers finally states what has been demonstrated repeatedly in the medical literature: physicians have been sold a false bill of goods on the benefits of drugs like metformin in altering the course of diabetes. The conventional wisdom is that since elevations in blood sugar levels are associated with the complications of diabetes, tightly controlling blood sugar levels with drugs should stop the progression of the disease and extend life expectancy. However, that does not appear to be the case. The researchers themselves concluded that “despite guidelines that confidently recommend tight glucose control for preventing complications of type 2 diabetes, there is little evidence that this approach helps patients.” Wow—that is clearly setting the record straight to all doctors who have drank the Kool-Aid of what the drug companies have been Continue reading >>

    I found a new snack food!!!!!

    So, I was shopping the other night and in some random obscure parts of the store there was this rack with some sale foods and there were these "Jell-o pudding Singles" and Sugar free ones!!!! I am SO excited! I LOVE sugar free chocolate pudding, but hate making a whole package cause part of it ends up going to waste.
    Anyways, I'm sure this is old news, but i'm totally excited! I love finding new things!

    I remember how depressing it was on my first trip to the grocery store to buy sugar free and low carb foods, and how exciting it was to find the sugar free Jello Pudding singles! I think I kept my composure on the outside, but inside I was screaming, "It's chocolate and it's pudding and I can eat it!!"

    During my late night walks to a 24 hour grocery store I found these sugar free foods:
    *cookies
    *candy bars
    *Jello brand jello & puddings
    *breakfast cereals
    Was I ever happy! I never would have found these during the day because a busy store is too distracting and going around with a shopping list just makes me rush around. I was told that grocery stores in the US regularly stock sugar free cookies alongside regular cookies. Walmart in Canada doesn't stock as much sugar free foods, but they should because it's American owned. There are a lot of Canadians who are diabetic. My only explanation is that Canada, as usual, is too cautious and quite slow to catch up with stocking certain things in stores. The other thing that bothers me is that muffins are very high in sugar. Why can't we have reduced or sugar free muffins? I find that muffins typically have anywhere from 24 to 32 grams of sugar, and not all of them contain fruit. That amount of sugar is usually found in a regular candy bar. I know muffins are healthier than candy bars but it doesn't make sense to treat a muffin as a sweet snack.
