Jon Jones Mother Passes Away After Battle With Diabetes

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones’ mother, Camille Jones, has passed away after losing her battle with diabetes.
Mrs. Jones raised three supremely athletic sons; Chandler and Arthur Jones who both play in the NFL and have been starters on Super Bowl winning teams, as well as Jon Jones – who is considered by many to be the greatest mixed martial artist of all time. Arthur Jones took to Instagram to confirm his mother’s unfortunate passing:
Mom, I love you so much! It's hard to except the fact that my mother is not with me anymore she went to be with my sister in heaven. No more pain & suffering. Thank you for making me the man I am today! This Friday and Saturday will be the toughest weekend of my life. Please keep my family in your prayers

Jon Jones has noted last year that his mother was losing her battle with diabetes, and also needed to have her leg amputated due to her diabetic condition (quotes via MMA Fighting):
“In my last fight, I had a lot of stuff stacked up against me,” Jones said. “A lot of you guys don’t really realize what’s been going on in my personal life. My mom is in a real bad position. She’s really losing a fight to diabetes right now. She got Continue reading

Cuckoo for Cocoa: Does Chocolate Help Diabetes?

Cuckoo for Cocoa: Does Chocolate Help Diabetes?

Eating a diet rich in cocoa may help type 2 diabetics control their blood sugar, a new study suggests.
Findings published in the journal Molecular Nutritional and Food Research reveal that the flavanol epicatechin (EC), a naturally occuring compound in dark chocolate, can help regulate insulin levels.
Pass the Hershey's?
Before you go reaching for a candy bar, however, researchers point out that only dark chocolate that contains pure cocoa — often also called cacao — will give you any health benefits.
In the study, insulin signaling by epicatechin was analyzed by looking at proteins of the insulin pathways and insulin receptors. EC appears to enhance the insulin receptors in such a way that they are strengthened and therefore respond better to glucose production.
Implications for diabetics
Lead researcher Dr. Matthew Hobbs explains that, unfortunately, eating extra chocolate won't have an effect on diabetics, as the added sugar, calories and fat would negate any health benefits derived from the substance.
"The implication that eating chocolate will help people with type 2 diabetes to control their blood sugar is simply not a conclusion that can be drawn from this research," Hobbs said.

Type 2 diabetes is different from type 1 diabetes in many ways. As its alternate name of adult-onset diabetes implies, it is usually only found in adults. However, the rate of children acquiring the disease is going up.
Type 2 diabetes is also known as non-insulin dependent diabetes due to the fact that, unlike type 1, insulin injections are not always required for tre Continue reading

Diabetes Related Skin Conditions: Bacterial Infections, Prevention and Treatment

Diabetes Related Skin Conditions: Bacterial Infections, Prevention and Treatment

Anyone can develop a bacterial skin infection, but people with diabetes are more prone to them. A skin condition can even be the first indication that an individual has diabetes.
Good skin care, a healthy diet, regular exercise, and controlled blood sugar are the primary preventive measures for skin infections. However, even the most hygienic and scrupulous among us might contract one.
Common Bacterial Infections
Styes are painful red lumps, often pus-filled, along the edge of an eyelid. Other symptoms are tearing, eyelid swelling, and crusting.
Preventive measures for styes are:
not touching your eye area with unwashed hands.
always washing your hands thoroughly before changing contact lenses.
always disinfecting contact lenses before use.
removing your makeup before going to bed.
not using old or expired makeup.
Most styes are harmless and resolve on their own, improving within 48 hours. The recommended self-care is to apply a warm moist washcloth to your closed eyelid for at least ten minutes several times each day. For persistent styes, doctors might prescribe an antibiotic (e.g., topical cream, eye drops, pills). Styes occasionally need to be lanced and drained.
Boils, or furuncles, are red, pus-filled, tender lumps that form under the skin when one or several hair follicles are infected by bacteria. A cluster of boils is a more serious infection called a carbuncle.
Preventive factors for boils and carbuncles are:
wash your hands regularly with a mild soap.
avoid contact with those who have a boil, or other staph infection.
prompt treatment and care of other skin probl Continue reading
