Diabetes: An Opportunity to Have a Lasting Impact on Health Through Lifestyle Modification
Hena N. Patel, MD; Andrew M. Freeman, MD, FACC; and Kim A. Williams MD, FACC
Three cardiologists, including the 2015-2016 president of the American College of Cardiology, review the evidence in support of lifestyle modification for diabetes management or remission.
Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is a costly chronic illness that is increasing in prevalence and associated with significant health problems, including cardiovascular disease (CVD).1 In fact, CVD is listed as the cause of death in nearly 65% of individuals with diabetes.2
Historically, T2D was labeled a coronary artery disease equivalentin light of the 7-year risk of myocardial infarction (MI) equaling that of a person without diabetes who is post-MI3 in the restatin-treatment era and the marked improvement in adverse cardiac events with statin therapy.4 Given this grave prognosis, and with longstanding work showing diabetes remission from lifestyle interventions as far back as the 1940s,5there is no better and more economical way to treat this epidemic.
Diabetes and CVD share multiple modifiable lifestyle risk factors, such as obesity and physical inactivity, that tend to comingle for many adults, adding to the threat of severe advers Continue reading

What You'd be Shocked to Learn You Can Eat with Diabetes
Its a beautiful, sunny Saturday, and you're at a good friends BBQ birthday gathering. On the picnic table sits a big bucket of chips and dip, then several courses of grill-food galore, and the finale, a glowing, ooey gooey chocolate birthday cake. If someone told you that you couldn't have any of those things, how would you feel?
You'd probably be disappointed, and feel compelled want it even more than if someone told you that you could eat to your heart's content. Its human nature. And, it's a challenge that many people with diabetes face every single day.
But this doesn't have to be the case, according to Erica Hechler, a Registered Dietitian and Certified Diabetes Educator at the Florida Hospital Diabetes Institute.
People with diabetes can eat all foods in a healthy way, says Hechler. This disease shouldn't keep you from enjoying a variety of foods and especially the ones you love! she adds.
No foods are off-limits for people with diabetes; they key is working with a Registered Dietitian to better understand how certain foods can affect blood sugar levels and how to include them in their meal plan in moderation in a healthy way, advises Hechler.
She explains further, Talking to people with diabetes about how to choose foods can help reduce negative feeling surrounding foods. Instead of just providing a list of foods people can and can't eat we help people with Continue reading

Hard Rock Pins, just because

Today is the fifth day of Diabetes Blog week. Each day we have a prompt and are called to post a response. You can read all responses at my friend Karens site Bitter~Sweet . Also, please remember RABlog week will occur in September. I hope you join the fun then as well.
Lets wrap up the week by sharing a little more about ourselves, beyond the chronic illness we or our loved ones live with. Share an interest, hobby, passion, something that is YOU. If you want to explore how it relates to or helps with diabetes you can. Or let it be a part of you that is completely separate from diabetes because there is more to life than just diabetes! (This topic is a suggestion from the 2016 #DBlogWeek survey.)
I come from a family of collectors of silly things. The collection bug was best exemplified by my father who at some point decided to collect matchbook covers. Dad could not explain his collection, why he did it or what the end game would be. He understood they had no real value, but his collection was not about value. It was about things. He collected these for several years and then cold turkey, it was over. He no longer had interest. The collection at the end numbered a few thousand, all sorted and categorized in perfect, pristine form. There it sat for years. An object of great passion for a time but my dad ultimately grew tired of it. At the end of his life, he called his grandsons together and said this is now yours and he divided them up. No thought was given if they wanted them or not, I was wily enough Continue reading
