Is New Dolphins Quarterback Jay Cutler ‘the Most Misinterpreted Guy In The NFL?’

Is new Dolphins quarterback Jay Cutler ‘the most misinterpreted guy in the NFL?’

Ask former teammates about Jay Cutler, and without any prompting, it comes up: The face.
No NFL quarterback in history has had his facial expressions dissected more than Cutler’s. Why doesn’t he smile more? Why doesn’t he look more intense? Is he apathetic? Aloof? The perception of nonchalance led an NFL fan in 2012 to Photoshop a cigarette in Cutler’s mouth, and create the “SmokinJayCutler” Tumblr account, which went viral.

The smoking Cutler meme resurfaced Monday, during his introductory news conference after signing a one-year, $10 million contract with the Dolphins to replace injured Ryan Tannehill.

That face, say those who know him, is, in fact, the face of a tough-as-nails competitor, son of a no-nonsense Indiana state trooper who ran a concrete business on the side, a three-sport phenom who grew up on Holly Lane in Santa Claus, Indiana, led Heritage Hills High to a state semifinal victory on a severely sprained ankle, and survived four years at Vanderbilt, where he faced relentless pressure from the Southeastern Conference’s punishing defenses.
That face, they say, is a resilient guy who during the past eight years, while playing quarterback for the Chicago Bears and being a media piñata, was battling Type 1 diabetes, pricking his finger several times a day, injecting himself in the stomach with insulin. He realized something was wrong Continue reading

Carbohydrate Adjustments for Exercisers with Diabetes

Carbohydrate Adjustments for Exercisers with Diabetes

What to Look for Before You Exercise
Many people with diabetes have special needs that should be considered when planning an exercise program.
Exercise can cause your blood glucose levels to drop too much, especially if you take insulin or other glucose-lowering medications. Symptoms of hypoglycemia, or "low blood sugar," include feeling shaky, lightheaded, weak, confused, anxious, fatigued, irritable, or hungry, headache, breaking out into a clammy sweat, or even fainting.
Hypoglycemia can happen during exercise, right after exercise, or even up to 24 hours after you finish exercising. Symptoms of hypoglycemia can be mild and gradual; but it is more common that symptoms come on very quickly. By paying close attention to how you’re feeling, you can prevent problems before they put you at risk of injury.
Because of the risk of hypoglycemia, you should always check your blood glucose level before you exercise. Having a carbohydrate containing snack prior to exercising is one way to prevent exercise related hypoglycemia. Use the chart below to make the recommended adjustments, based on your glucose reading, before you exercise. Click here for a detailed, printable chart that shows single (15-gram) servings of carbohydrate-containing foods.

INHEAVEN bassist Chloe Little on being diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes

INHEAVEN bassist Chloe Little on being diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes

For those of you unaware what ‘Facebook Live’ is, it’s a live broadcast where your followers can ask you questions and see you answer them in real time.
This is what I did last week with INHEAVEN - we did our first Facebook Live for our fans to ask us questions about our debut album, which comes out in just a few weeks. But during the 15 minute session, where most people were asking about our favourite songs on the record and what hair products we use, I think I was ‘trolled’.
Someone asked me ‘do you like diabetes?’, which seems a really weird question to ask a band - however when you’ve just been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes and only your family and doctor know about your condition it is quite a scary position to be in, live on air to 1000 people you don’t know.
How does this person know this about me? Why are other people ‘liking’ their question? Are they laughing at me because I have a disease? How the hell do they know? Can they see my internet search history? Or is it just a freak coincidence? I’ll never know.
It just felt like an absolute violation of my privacy, something I couldn’t get back. I had wanted to live with my new life changing condition for a while before I even told close friends, however now I feel like I’ve got to be open and tell the story. But who knows, it may have just been a coincidence and a ‘sign’ to push me into facing my new reality in a public forum.
Three weeks ago I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. I had noticed a few weeks earlier that I had lost about 14lbs over a few months, which for someone who is Continue reading

Can a Gluten-Free Diet Increase Your Risk for Diabetes?

Can a Gluten-Free Diet Increase Your Risk for Diabetes?

A recent study indicates that adopting a gluten-free diet may not help you be healthier. The research, which included more than 30 years of data, found that those with less gluten in their diets actually had a slightly higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes over a few decades.
Greg Zong, a nutrition research fellow at Harvard University’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health in Boston, recognized the belief that gluten-free diets are healthier and wanted to see if this belief might have merit. Zong’s team of researchers conducted studies every two to four years in which nearly 200,000 people reported what they ate. Over the 30-year study period, nearly 16,000 of the participants had developed type 2 diabetes.
The people who ate the most gluten — 12 grams per day — had a 13 percent lower risk of developing diabetes.
What is gluten?
It’s a protein found in wheat, barley, rye, and foods that contain these grains. People with Celiac Disease will have serious health problems if they continue to eat foods containing gluten.
Celiac Disease is an autoimmune illness that affects the small intestine; when people who have it eat gluten, their immune system responds by attacking the gut’s lining. If they continue to eat gluten they’ll end up with multiple nutritional deficiencies that will impact their health. Their intestines simply can’t absorb the nutrients they eat.
People who suffer from gluten intolerance have severe symptoms that include cramping, gas, and bloating. No damage to the intestines is seen but the symptoms may be intolerable. They most often can eat s Continue reading

Diabetes and Mold: The Early Warning Signs

Diabetes and Mold: The Early Warning Signs

Alarming Symptoms
Mold may not be hailed as a friendly, beneficial presence, but in the case of early warning signs for diabetes, it could just save your life.
Do you or a loved one experience any of the following symptoms?
Bedwetting (in children who previously didn’t wet the bed before)
Blurred vision (before eating or soon after eating)
Extreme hunger (this can occur before and after eating)
Fatigue and weakness
Frequent urination
Increased thirst (especially after eating)
Irritability and other inexplicable mood changes
(In females) Vaginal yeast infection
-OR-
Areas of darkened skin
Blurred vision (before eating or soon after eating)
Frequent urination
Increased hunger (often intense and not long after eating)
Increased thirst (especially after eating)
Slow-healing sores or frequent infections
Weight loss (without even trying)
Unexplained fatigue
The first set of symptoms belongs to Type 1 Diabetes, while the second set belongs to Type 2 Diabetes.* As you can see, both types of the disease share specific indicators and cause similar reactions in the body. In fact, not only do they share similar symptoms, they also share a common cause: improper insulin utilization.
To better understand both types of diabetes, you must first understand the proper process of glucose (sugar) and insulin.
Glucose
Glucose comes about from the conversion of food into blood-sugar, which is where insulin steps in. (Note: All food types are processed and broken down into glucose. Glucose conversion is not dependent upon the ingestion of literal sugar.)
Insulin
Insulin is secreted into the blo Continue reading
