Potential Micronutrient Deficiency Lacks Recognition In Diabetes

Potential micronutrient deficiency lacks recognition in diabetes Ann F Walker , Senior Lecturer in Human Nutrition Address for correspondence Ann F Walker Senior Lecturer in Human Nutrition, Hugh Sinclair Unit of Human Nutrition, School of Chemistry, Food Biosciences and Pharmacy. University of Reading, PO Box 226, Reading, RG6 2AP. E-mail: [email protected] Author information Copyright and License information Disclaimer Copyright British Journal of General Practice, 2007. Over the last two decades, an additional tool to measure nutrient intake has been introduced by the UK Government. This is the ground-breaking National Diet and Nutrition Survey (NDNS) 1 , which has revealed widespread risk of micronutrient deficiency. For each NDNS, about 2000 people are selected at random from postal codes to reflect the age, sex, income, and geographical distribution of the UK population. Responders are asked to record and weigh everything they eat for a week and daily intakes of nutrients are calculated from food composition tables. The first survey, published in 1990, was of adults (1964 years of age). This was so successful that it was followed by surveys of children aged 1.54.5 yea Continue reading >>

    Hi Guys and Girls, would like to know if anyone here has carrot juice (home juiced) i love it, only just started doing it though, is it ok for my type 2, been diagnosed few years now, at moment it is fine, but i do want the Juice, i know people are going to say about juicing other veg but i am also on wolfrin for my blood.

    The only way to know how it effects your BG levels is to test .Have you got a meter ? Carrots cause my bloods to go high

    Like @carty carrot juice sends my bg too high.
    Although it is good in green smoothies with other veg and fibre.
    I am vary wary of ANY juices, even veg ones - because my meter tells me to be.
    On the other hand, I find veg and fruit smoothies are usually fine, so long as the fruit is berries.
    The reason the smoothies work is, I think, because you get all the veg fibre, which prevents a quick bg spike.
    Hope that helps.

Lack of sleep elevates insulin and makes you store fat. And impossible to burn fat. www.ultimatestressreductionprogram.com Insulin promotes fat storage and inhibits muscle burning of fat. It also makes your body produce cholesterol. Worse still, elevated insulin is related to four major cancers; breast cancer, prostate cancer, colon cancer and skin cancer. Research has show that in every animal tested, when the body can not control blood sugar and insulin it results in accelerated again, early death and many other factors that lead to a lower quality of life. Simply put, to lose weight you need to sleep better.

Is Lack Of Vitamin A A Cause Of Diabetes?

Is lack of vitamin A a cause of diabetes? Vitamin A deficiency decreases insulin production capability of pancreaticbeta-cells, claims new study inEndocrine Journal. Partially blocking vitamin A receptors in beta-cells significantly reduced insulin secretions in cells taken from both diabetics and non-diabetics, the multi-centre research team explained. We saw close to a 30% reduction, commented Albert Salehi, senior researcher at Lund University Diabetes Centre, Malmo. The study also found that without vitamin A, beta-cells were less able to resist inflammation. Where complete deficiency occurred, this resulted in cell death. Researchers propose these findings may be significant in cases of type-1 diabetes where inadequate beta-cells development has occurred in early life. "In animal experiments it is known that newborn mice need vitamin A to develop their beta-cells in a normal way. Most likely, the same applies to human beings. Children must absorb a sufficient amount of vitamin A through their diet," says Salehi. Discovery of a vitamin A receptor (known as the G-protein coupled receptor C5C (GPRC5C)) on the surface of pancreatic beta-cells prompted researchers to investigate t Continue reading >>

    Sickness and Metformin

    I got sick 2 weeks ago throwing up for 3 days,stomac was quizy couple days after. Ifeel realy good now but i haven"t taken my metformin since i got sick.My bg has been morning in the 90s befor supper in the low 70s 2to3 hours after i eat has jumped around 95 to 117 is this good or bad and should i resume taking my metformin?????

  2. MEGriff1950

    I found this on a site and might help.
    Metformin (
    Glucophage®) is a prescription diabetes medication. It is used for controlling blood sugar in people with type 2 diabetes.
    Many people may wonder, "How does it work?" Metformin belongs to a class of drugs known as biguanide medications and works in several ways. The medicine reduces the amount of sugar made by the liver, limits the amount of sugar absorbed into the body from the diet, and makes insulin receptors more sensitive (helping the body respond better to its own insulin). All of these effects cause a decrease in blood sugar levels.Since metformin does not increase the amount of insulin produced by the body, it is less likely to cause dangerously low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), as many other diabetes medications can do.

Diabetic Nutrition, Nutrient Losses Complications

Nutrient Losses Cause Diabetic Complications Nutrient Losses Cause Diabetic Complications Diabetes is a nutritional wasting disease. The elevated blood sugar levels that characterize diabetes cause excessive urination. The root words of diabetes mellitus come from the Greek meaningto pass throughandsweetorhoney. High blood sugar, whether its caused by insufficient insulin or insulin resistance (type 1 or type 2 diabetes, respectively), overwhelms the kidneys capacity to reabsorb glucose and all other water-soluble nutrients. Every time the blood sugar rises and urination increases, the diabetic patient loses water, magnesium, zinc, B12, B6, folic acid, and many other nutrients. Although water is replaced by drinking, nothing is done to replenish the water-soluble nutrients that are also swept out. The diabetic condition demands that these nutrients be replenishedand in large supplyto prevent the devastation that comes from nutritional deficiencies. Yet of the 15,000-plus patients with diabetes who have been treated at the Whitaker Wellness Institute sincewe opened in 1979, I do not recall a single one whose conventional physician had put him or her on a nutritional supplement regi Continue reading >>

    Ketones in Urine Not Dangerous for Type 2 Diabetics?

    I've been having ketones in my urine. Last few times, they were just traces. But it seems that most recently, there were some significant ketones. I'm T2 diabetic and I don't take insulin. My BG is very well controlled now: my fasting BG is usually below 95. I rarely go over 120 after meals.
    I suppose ketones are from my continuing ketosis. I've been losing weight rapidly for the last 2 months. My low carb diet is entirely responsible for my 30+ pound loss. I become full real quickly on protein and fat rich meals. I'm no longer constantly hungry since I'm not touching bread, pasta or rice. I have to say, I no longer have a very big appetite. Sometimes I just don't fee l like eating.
    In such a case, should one still be worried that ketones are found in urine? I realize that it is another story for those with T1 diabetes. But If your blood sugar levels are normal, should elevated ketones be a cause for concern?

    I suspect the ketones comes from your low carb diet... if your bg is good... it shouldn't be a big problem... but do monitor the ketone levels... too much and its not good too

It is only an issue if there is inadequate insulin for the body to function properly, and that is accompanied by very high blood glucose.

    Insulin is a hormone made by the pancreas that allows your body to use sugar (glucose) from carbohydrates in the food that you eat for energy or to store glucose for future use. Insulin helps keeps your blood sugar level from getting too high (hyperglycemia) or too low (hypoglycemia). The cells in your body need sugar for energy. However, sugar cannot go into most of your cells directly. After you eat food and your blood sugar level rises, cells ...
