Chelsea warns of ‘horrifying’ report on diabetes & global warming; response is NOT what she’d hoped for

Global warming is causing diabetes, y’all!
That’s what former first daughter Chelsea Clinton suggested on Twitter — after which she got ruthlessly fact-checked and mocked.
“Horrifying research shows correlation between global warming and rise in diabetes cases,” Clinton tweeted.
Chelsea linked to an inane Los Angeles Times article claiming that global warming could lead to an additional “100,000 diabetes cases” a year in the United States:

— Chelsea Clinton (@ChelseaClinton) March 22, 2017
Dismissing the longstanding adage in statistics that correlation is not causation, Chelsea pushed her climate-change agenda while ignoring the fact that most experts say type 2 diabetes is induced by poor diet, lifestyle choices, obesity and heredity.

Not surprisingly, Twitter let her have it.
@ChelseaClinton First rule of statistics – correlation is not causation.

@ChelseaClinton I'm horrified that this crap passes as a tangible start for a political career.
Also, Bill Clinton is a rapist.

Top 5 Diabetes Super Foods

Top 5 Diabetes Super Foods

Even though we live in a pill-popping, drug-oriented culture, more and more people are starting to realize that food is really our best medicine. In 90% of all chronic and degenerative diseases, poor diet is either the direct cause or a significant factor. This is especially true for Type 2 diabetes. There is no stage of Type 2 that can’t be helped by making some smart dietary changes. And the earlier they are made, the more dramatic the health improvements will be.
The “prescription” is simple
A few simple changes in a patient’s eating habits can actually reverse Type 2 so that all metabolic functions, including the body’s insulin production, return to normal.
Here’s the shorthand version…
Quit consuming the foods and beverages that spike your blood sugar and trigger the insulin response (sweets, sodas, juices, plus refined carbs such as bread, baked goods, pasta, chips, and grain-based commercial foods, like breakfast cereals). Over-consuming these can cause Type 2, and even small amounts will make it worse.
Start eating more of the foods that heal the damage that insulin-resistance and diabetes have done to your body. Do this by turning your diet into an anti-inflamatory diet as inflammation is one of the root causes of diabetes (beware: inflammation destroys the insulin-producing beta cells in the pancreas). In this diet try to include plenty of what I call “the diabetes-healing superfoods.” Here are the top 5 according to extensive scientific research…

One Day in the Life of Type 1 Diabetes

One Day in the Life of Type 1 Diabetes

DAY 4161 Living with Diabetes
As I sit up in bed, my head spins. It’s 7 a.m. I’m shaking, sweating and scared. It’s only then I realize that I missed dinner last night. I know that my blood sugar is dangerously low. I also know that apart from my 13-year-old sister, I’m home alone. Out of the corner of my eye, I see a muesli bar sticking out of my handbag. I try to get out of bed and reach for it, in an attempt to bring my blood-sugar up. That’s the last thing I can remember. My name is Shelby. I’m your average 21-year-old, aside from the fact that I have had Type 1 diabetes since I was 9.
One morning in January of 2014, my blood sugar dropped so low that I had a seizure and knocked myself unconscious after hitting the back of my head on my bed frame.
It was the first time that an ambulance had ever been called for me. Apart from this instance, I have had several serious hypoglycemic episodes — I’ve had a seizure whilst on camp visiting a crocodile farm, I’ve smashed drinking glasses in my hands in an attempt to fix my blood sugar and I’ve buttered my hands whilst trying to make myself a sandwich. If you haven’t already guessed it, I’m extremely stubborn and independent. I don’t like asking for help; however, it’s because of my diabetes that I have had to learn how to ask for such.
Diabetes is debilitating. Diabetes is devastating. Diabetes is draining.
We’re allowed to have good days and bad days; just like everyone else. We just need to be prepared. Even on our bad days, we are still diabetics. We still have to stop and test our blood sugars Continue reading

5 Lies About Dieting With Diabetes

5 Lies About Dieting With Diabetes

It's easy to assume that having diabetes drastically changes what you can eat - and in some cases, it does.
However, there are many misconceptions that have to do with eating and diabetes. The following are common myths - or flat-out lies - about what diabetics can and can't consume in their diets.
1. If you have diabetes, you can't ever indulge your cravings for sweets.
It's not possible for anyone to completely avoid food cravings - diabetics included. And it's usually very safe for people with diabetes to indulge, so long as they manage their blood sugar appropriately.
While cravings are best dealt with when they are prevented - by eating enough protein and not skipping meals - having a small portion of something sweet won't usually cause a problem.
2. Diabetics can't eat what everyone else in the family is eating.
Just because someone in the family is diabetic, that doesn't mean this person requires "special food" at meal times.
While a diabetic will have certain nutritional guidelines her or she should follow, normal, healthy foods in the right portions are usually appropriate. Most diabetes-friendly diets recommend lean proteins, vegetables and small portions of fiber-rich grains like brown rice.
3. You can't have starchy foods if you have diabetes.
Potatoes, bread or beans aren't completely off-limits for people with diabetes. Again, it's more important for diabetics to be mindful of portions sizes.
Some starchy foods are digested more slowly by the body, which means they don't affect blood sugar levels as significantly as other starches.
Consult the glycemic index s Continue reading

How To Keep Kidneys Healthy With Diabetes

How To Keep Kidneys Healthy With Diabetes

The kidneys are responsible for filtering waste from the bloodstream and keeping urination healthy.
Diabetics may be more prone to kidney damage. Luckily, there are steps you can take to ensure that your kidneys function at optimal levels.
Control Blood Sugar Levels
Perhaps the most important thing to do to ensure kidney health is to maintain good blood sugar control. Excess glucose in the blood can damage the ability to filter waste properly. As a result, protein can leak from the blood into your urine.
Since diabetes is one of the leading causes of kidney disease, it's important to take blood glucose management seriously.
Monitor Blood Pressure
Blood pressure can also affect kidney health. According to the American Heart Association, high blood pressure is the second leading cause of kidney failure.
Since kidney health is closely associated with circulatory health, high blood pressure can cause artery damage, which inhibits the kidneys' ability to filter blood properly.
Check your blood pressure regularly. If it is consistently high, speak with your doctor about your options.
Eat a Kidney Friendly Diet
You can improve your kidney health by making some small tweaks to your diet.
While you should discuss any major dietary changes with your physician (since they can affect your blood sugar), the following rules generally apply when it comes to eating a kidney-friendly diet:
Reduce protein intake, particularly from animal sources. High-protein diets can put additional stress on already overworked kidneys.
Cut back on sodium. Too much salt can raise your blood pressure and adv Continue reading
