Eat EGGS To Beat Diabetes: Four A Week Can Slash Risk By 40 Per Cent

Eat EGGS to beat diabetes: Four a week can slash risk by 40 per cent

Researchers were stunned to learn that, although naturally high in cholesterol, eggs can cut the danger of developing Type 2 diabetes by almost 40 per cent.
The findings suggest eggs could play a crucial role in halting an epidemic of the condition which is sweeping Britain.
Scientists at the University of Eastern Finland said they think the results may be due to nutrients in eggs that improve the way the body metabolises sugar and help to dampen down inflammation which leads to chronic illness.
Previous studies had shown eggs raise cholesterol levels in patients who already have diabetes, but there had been little research on whether they made it likelier for people to develop the condition in the first place.
The specific suggestion of a protective effect against diabetes is interesting and needs further study to explain why this might be the case
The Finnish scientists analysed the eating habits of 2,332 middle-aged men who signed up to a study in the l980s.
Over the next 20 years, 432 of the men developed Type 2 diabetes.
The scientists found that men who ate roughly four eggs a week were 38 per cent less likely to fall ill than those who rarely or never ate eggs. They had lower blood sugar levels without seeing a steep rise in cholesterol.
The researchers said that eating more than four eggs a week did not seem to increase protection and stressed that they did not look at how the eggs were cooked.
Boiling, scrambling and poaching are regarded as the healthiest options while frying eggs can increase cholesterol intake by 50 per cent.
Professor Jyrki Virtanen said: “Eg Continue reading

A hockey camp for kids suffering from diabetes

A hockey camp for kids suffering from diabetes

MONTREAL - The Montreal Canadiens and Sun Life Financial Inc. are proud to team up and provide children living with type 1 diabetes the opportunity to attend hockey camp. This unique initiative, which is part of the Montreal Canadiens Hockey School program presented by Le Dindon du Québec, will provide children impacted by this disease the opportunity to learn the game of hockey and how to best manage their disease on and off the ice.
According to the Canadian Paediatric Society, approximately 33,000 children between the ages of 5 and 18 are living with type 1 diabetes*. The camp, run in collaboration with Dskate, is specially designed to teach the children and their families about diabetes and bring sports and health professionals together under one roof.
"We are very grateful for Sun Life Financial's support, because without them, this special edition hockey camp would not have been possible", said Geneviève Paquette, Executive Director, Community Relations, Montreal Canadiens. "We want to encourage children from all walks of life to learn the game of hockey and develop their physical skills. Thanks to the expertise provided by Dskate and the collaboration with Sun Life Financial, we are able to provide children living with type 1 diabetes the tools and skills they need to best manage their disease."
"Since we announced our support of diabetes in 2012, we've focused on diabetes awareness, prevention, care and research, with over $17 million committed to date," said Robert Dumas, President, Sun Life Financial, Quebec. "We're proud to continue our long-standing partnershi Continue reading

Robin is programmed to act like a child with diabetes to help youngsters with the condition
A robot is being developed to mimic a diabetic toddler to help children recognise symptoms of the condition.
Robin, short for "Robot Infant", is being developed at the University of Hertfordshire and can speak words including "hungry" and "hug me".
Developers said it was aimed at children aged seven to 12 to help youngsters learning to manage diabetes.
Diabetes UK said it had "been watching the development of Robin with great interest".
"It's really exciting to see this type of technology being used to help children accept and become more confident about their diabetes," said spokesman Simon O'Neill.
'Sense of responsibility'
Dr Lola Canamero and Dr Matthew Lewis designed and wrote the £5,800 robot's character.
"We try to give [children] a sense of responsibility and let them bond with the robot to understand that their actions can help with his diabetes and reinforce the sort of behaviours we'd like to see in them," said Dr Lewis.
"We would like to try multiple interactions; so far children have only spent half an hour with Robin in just one session.
"We'd like to have them interact with him several times and feel that they've improved.
"There are a limited number of behaviours Robin has at the moment which are sufficient for a half hour interaction but, for example, Robin only has a small number of words that he speaks. He also doesn't respond to noises."
What does Robin do?

Tried & Tested- Juices That Reverse Type 2 Diabetes Naturally

Tried & Tested- Juices That Reverse Type 2 Diabetes Naturally

Diabetes is a disease that causes blood glucose (sugar) levels to rise higher than normal. This is also called hyperglycemia. Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes.
When you have type 2 diabetes, your fat, liver, and muscle cells do not respond correctly to insulin. This is called insulin resistance. As a result, blood sugar does not get into these cells to be stored for energy.
Diabetes has grown very fast and latest statistics revealed by the US Centers for Disease Control state that 25.8 million Americans have diabetes. Also, research from the ADA shows that 79 million Americans have pre-diabetes, which is 25% of the US population!
The cost of diabetes to our nation is a staggering $245 billion dollars a year as of 2012. That’s $176 billion in direct medical costs and another $69 billion loss in productivity.
Is type 2 diabetes curable?
In people with type 2 diabetes, glucose builds up in the blood. But with good management, your blood glucose levels may go down to normal again. But this does not mean you are cured. Instead, a blood glucose level in your target range shows that your treatment plan is working and that you are taking care of your diabetes.
Symptoms of type 2 diabetes
Bladder, kidney, skin
Fatigue
Hunger

Increased urination
Blurred vision
Erectile dysfunction

Studies show that chia seeds can treat diabetes, boost energy and more

Studies show that chia seeds can treat diabetes, boost energy and more

(NaturalNews) Chia is a species of flowering plant that bears oval-shaped, multicolored seeds. These seeds, which have a neutral taste and crunchy texture, have been cultivated for centuries as a survival food in their native Mexico and Guatemala. Chia seeds had only just begun to enjoy recognition in the United States, however, when the eccentric Californian gadget company, Joseph Enterprises, began to market them in the 1980s as "Chia Pets," which are terracotta figurines that sprouted chia.
Aztec warriors treasured chia seeds for their medicinal properties, and many of these alleged properties are now being confirmed by contemporary studies. Below is a list of the health benefits attributed to chia seeds and the research that reinforces them.
Rich in essential fatty acids
One serving (2 ounces) of chia seeds contains approximately 11 grams of fat. Of these, 1 gram is saturated fat, while the remainder is comprised of essential polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats, including omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. In fact, according to a 2005 study published in the Nutrition Research journal, chia seeds are the greatest plant-based sources of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). ALA is an essential omega-3 fatty acid that has been known to prevent cancer, lower the risk of cardiovascular diseases, reduce cortisol levels and much more. Moreover, chia seeds and other foods that contain optimum omega-3/omega-6 balances are known to improve brain function, since our brains are built from the same fats.
Excellent source of protein and energy
According to chia expert Dr. Wayne Coates, chia Continue reading
