Being diagnosed with diabetes can feel like a life-long sentence to discomfort, inconvenience, and stress. This disease affects almost all of us. For those personally afflicted, it can be a daily, grinding challenge. The physical, emotional, and financial toll can be tremendous. For those who believe that the best they can do is to manage this difficult and potentially life-threatening disease, a future full of medications and insulin shots can seem bleak.
Fortunately, there is another way. In fact, seen from one perspective, type 2 diabetes is one of the best diagnoses to receive because it so readily responds to the cheapest, safest, and most effective treatment of all: diet.
Diabetes is a classic example of a Western-diet induced chronic disease. Although there is a genetic component to diabetes, the foods we eat determine whether those genes are expressed or not. It is good to know we are not completely controlled by our genetic endowment. In fact, with a whole food, plant-based diet one can not only prevent type 2 diabetes but often reverse it as well. This is well documented by medical experts who have assisted thousands of diabetics over the course of the last few decades. Beyond their own patients, thousands more who have read of their work and followed their guidelines have experienced the same outcomes. Here are t Continue reading

Long-term Access for People with Type 1 Diabetes

Long-term Access for People with Type 1 Diabetes


Long-term Access for People with Type 1 Diabetes
People in the USA, and throughout the rest of the world, are increasingly unable to afford the astronomical costs associated with their Type 1 diabetes. Our charity, T1International, did a survey in 2016 which showed that people in the USA are paying, on average, $571.69 per month on diabetes costs. It also showed that someone in Brazil or India might have to spend as much as 80% of their income each month to afford the costs of their diabetes.
The reasons behind this unaffordability are complex, and solutions can feel overwhelming. Not to mention, there are things that might look like solutions on the surface, which can sometimes actually be more detrimental.
For example, some of the big and powerful insulin manufacturers are supporting people with Type 1 diabetes around the globe by providing donations of insulin to communities in need. While these donations can save lives, they can also hold clinics and patients hostage. The beneficiaries of these donated essentials become completely reliant on the insulin companies to continue their generosity.
T1International has worked with several groups who explained that patients found themselves in intensely dangerous situations because a company decided that they could no longer afford to support the communities they had been helping. On other occasions, the quantity of vials of insulin donated or test strips provided was significantly reduced , even though more people were being diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in the area. Essentially, the insulin producer pulled the lifeline Continue reading

Fighting diabetes with new rice strains to help China stem growing scourge

BEIJING (BLOOMBERG) - With a stack of small, brown envelopes in hand, Li Jianyue trudges through a rice field in southern China to gather grain specimens she hopes might one day fight diabetes.
The obesity-linked disease is on a tear in China, and rice - the country's favourite staple - is showing up in studies as an important contributor.
The black kernels that Li pinches off mature stalks with her fingers and drops into paper sachets have been bred to avoid causing the high spikes in blood sugar when eaten, which can eventually lead to type-2 diabetes.
China tops the world in the number of adults living with diabetes: 109.6 million as of 2015. Another 40 million could join the ranks by 2040 unless preventative steps are taken.
Refined white rice is seen as an obvious target because the majority of the nation's 1.4 billion people consume it at least once a day, and eating it has a similar effect on blood-sugar levels as gorging on white bread.
"The number of people with diabetes is surging," said Li, a professor of life and environment sciences at Shanghai Normal University, treading between muddy rows of rice in green rubber boots.
Still, healthier rice alone won't tackle the problem - it has to taste good too, she said. "So, we're also trying to improve the texture."

Their mix of protein, vitamins and minerals is considered so powerful that eggs can be described as natures multivitamin.
The claims come from Scotland-based nutritionist Dr Carrie Ruxton in a research report offering advice to medical dietitians.
A research review highlights that as well as containing high-quality protein and fatty acids, there are a number of key nutrients, including vitamin D, B vitamins, selenium, iodine and choline, which are not present in many other foods.
The findings represent a remarkable comeback for eggs, which carried health warnings for decades based on the mistaken belief that their cholesterol content increased the risk of heart disease.
