A Website to Promote Physical Activity in People With Type 2 Diabetes Living in Remote or Rural Locations: Feasibility Pilot Randomized Controlled Trial

Background: Research supports the use of Web-based interventions to promote physical activity in diabetes management. However, previous interventions have found poor levels of engagement or have not included health professionals and people with diabetes in the design of the tool.
Objective: To develop and explore the feasibility and indicative effect of a Web-based physical activity promotion intervention in people diagnosed with type 2 diabetes living in remote or rural locations.
Methods: A qualitative approach using focus groups that included patients with diabetes and health professionals were run to identify key concepts, ideas, and features, which resulted in the design of a physical activity website. This site was tested using a quantitative approach with a qualitative 6-month pilot study that adopted a three-armed approach. Participants were randomized into three groups: a control group who received written diabetes-specific physical activity advice; an information Web group, a Web-based group who received the information online; and an intervention Web group, an interactive Web-based group who received online information plus interactive features, such as an activity log, personalized advice, and goal setting.
Results: A website was designed based on patient and health professional ideas for effective physical activity promotion. This website was tested with 31 participants, 61% (19/31) male, who were randomized into the groups. Website log-ins decreased over time: 4.5 times in month 1, falling to 3 times in month 6. Both the information Web group—mean 134.6 (SD Continue reading

Dr Scott Saunders, MD Diabetes Reversed
I am the mother of 3 teenagers. I was diagnosed with diabetes and my doctor put me on the prescription drug Metformin and then also on a statin drug. I had unbearable side effects. I got bad stomach cramps and felt ill. I became extremely tired (always), depressed and couldnt function on a day to day basis.
I got your tips. It was the best thing I have ever done in my life. Ultimately, was able to move off drugs. It was so simple and straightforward, so easy. My sugar levels are down, and my energy level is up. I now go to the gym and have lost weight.
Amazing story, isnt it? Joannes true story is just one from many people who have gai Continue reading

What's the Best Time of Day to Eat Carbs If You Have Diabetes?

What's the Best Time of Day to Eat Carbs If You Have Diabetes?


What's the Best Time of Day to Eat Carbs If You Have Diabetes?
Eating large amounts of carbs over time can limit your body's ability to metabolize them, especially if you have diabetes.
The following excerpt is adapted from the new book Master Your Diabetes: A Comprehensive, Integrative Approach for Both Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes by Mona Morstein, ND (2017, Chelsea Green Publishing)
What exactly are carbohydrates? Carbohydrates are biological molecules consisting of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen atoms, but we also use the term as shorthand for foods that contain a lot of starches or sugars. People with diabetes need to be strict in eliminating high carbohydrate foods from their diets because even small amounts of these foods can pose big problems for regulating glucose levels. A low-carb diet means restricting carbohydrates to less than 45 grams per day, and even down to 20 grams per day, depending on your daily caloric intake.
Carbohydrates are listed on nutrition labels as total carbohydrates, fiber, and sugar. A diabetic patient reading a nutrition label only needs to take into account total carbohydrates minus fiber, as fiber is not absorbed into the body and so does not raise glucose levels. The result equals how many carbs will be absorbed by your intestine and affect your glucose level.
We do not focus on the sugar content of the label, because it is not helpful to us. If a label says each serving of food contains 19 grams of total carbohydrates, 1 gram of fiber, 4 grams of sugar, and a diabetic patient does not understand how to interpret that label, he might Continue reading

A world renowned diabetes epidemiologist, Dr Cho has published over 80 peer reviewed papers on type-1 & type-2 diabetes and gestational diabetes. He is also founder of the type-1 diabetes registry in Korea and is also responsible for estimating the prevalence of type 2 diabetes for the Korean population.
In an email interview with ETHealthworld, Dr Nam Han Cho provided insights on to the state of diabetes in India.
How do IDFs South East Asia regions function? What are your observations/findings in diabetes for India?
The South East Asia (SEA) region is one of the seven IDF regions. It is the most active region for promoting diabetes awareness and advocacy, providing patient & professional education and humanitarian support, hosting numerous international congresses for professionals, as well as conducting quality public health and clinically related diabetes researches.
Diabetes in India is a more serious problem than in other parts of the world. Indians stand at second highest number of people living with diabetes, especially highest in gestational diabetes in the world. A rapid economic growth, sedentary lifestyles and urbanization alter national culture and social structures, and eventually will put more people at high risk of diabetes in the future.
