Type 1 diabetes, an autoimmune disease in which the body attacksits own insulin-producing cells, is on the rise globally.
Early evidence of an association between type 1 diabetes and aprotein in cow milk, known as A1 beta-casein,
was published in 2003. However, the notion that thestatistically strong association could be causal has remainedcontroversial.
we have reviewed the overall evidence that links A1 beta-casein totype 1 diabetes.Our research brings forward new ways oflooking at that evidence.
Type 1 diabetes is the form of diabetes that often manifestsduring childhood. The key change is an inability of the pancreas toproduce insulin, which is essential for transporting glucose acrossinternal cell membranes.
There is common confusion between type 1 and the much morecommon type 2 diabetes. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease.This means that the immune system attacks the body's own cells.Insulin-producing cells in the Continue reading

Natural Diabetes Treatments - 18 Essential Oils for Diabetes

Diabetes is close to my heart and unfortunately, my own home.Most of my family is diabetic and I received my own diabetes diagnosis around a year ago. While it can be treated conventionally, that wasnt aroute I wanted to go unless I absolutely had to. I dont like chemicals and I dont like conventional medications if I can avoid it. My body doesnt react to them the way that most people do so taking a conventional treatment can actually do me more harm than good. When I first found out I was diabetic, I made a deal with my husband. I could try natural treatments for diabetes first and only if they failed would I go on more conventional diabetes treatments like medicine or insulin. I can be rather crunchy at times and Im well aware of the benefits of essential oils so the first thing that I did was look up the different essential oils for diabetes to help harness nature in helping my body to heal.
My father was just 54 years old when he died from complications related to a diabetic ulcer. If you arent sure what that is, it is basically an open wound that wont heal. The ulcer got gangrene and as a result, his entire body turned septic. As a result, he passed from a heart attack ten years ago. Id love to tell you that he did everything that he could to manage his diabetes, but the truth is that he didnt. I have vivid memories of watching him eat sweets and other sugar filled foods day in and day out. When I received my diagno Continue reading

The Sibling Guide to Type 1 Diabetes

The Sibling Guide to Type 1 Diabetes


The phrase Type 1 diabetes runs in the family has taken on a whole new meaning for me. T1D has genetic markers and certainly runs in my blood. In 1991, my dad was diagnosed with Type 1. 21 years later, I was diagnosed. In2015, my brother. One year later, my younger sister, in 2016.
Type 1 Diabetes ran in the family and through the family, hitting us one-by-one. However, we have learned together to not let diabetes run us. Weve cried together, laughed together, tested our blood sugar together, and have even shared some good vent sessions every once in a while exclusive to only us T1Ds.
Every time we learned of a new diagnosis in the family, we were equipped and ready to help, armed with confidence, not fear. So what happens when a newly-diagnosed sibling of yours suddenly learns they have Type 1 Diabetes? How can you help? Whether you are a T1D or not, here are 5 simple ways you can help your recently-diagnosed sibling:
Do your own research to understand what T1D is and what it is NOT to guide you in best practices in offering the best support for your sibling. Your sibling will truly appreciate investing in their life by taking the time to learn their disease and how it will affect their new norm. Diabetes is a complex web and the internet and literature out there can be quite overwhelming. Take it one day at a time and perhaps commit yourself to learning one new concept a week. Diabetes is a marathon, not a sprint! For starters, here is a list of major concepts to learn:
What is T1D ? What are the other types of diabetes ?
How do you treat T1D? What is insulin? How Continue reading

Leonard Thompson was fourteen years old and near death when he helped make medical history. It was 1922, and though what became known as diabetes dated back to ancient times the Chinese called it sugar urine disease the only treatment for the illness at the time was the starvation diet.
Thompson weighed sixty-five pounds when he was admitted to Toronto General Hospital. A young surgeon named Dr. Frederick Banting convinced his father to let him inject his son with a new drug he was testing in dogs called insulin. Thompsons health improved dramatically, and news of the medical miracle made the front pages of newspapers around the globe. The next year, the drug manufacturer Eli Lilly began making insulin to treat diabetes.
But though the technology for treating the disease has improved over time, for an estimated three million Americans many of them children a diagnosis of type 1 diabetes remains a life sentence. They manage it by monitoring their blood sugar throughout the day and administering insulin. But severe complications later in life can include heart disease, blindness, nerve damage and even amputation. The disease costs an estimated $15 billion a year to treat.
Thats why researchers and investors have long considered finding a way to transplant cells that could re Continue reading

Tips for Managing Diabetes

Tips for Managing Diabetes


by Anne Wasson | Jan 13, 2017 | AFMC HealthSpot , Individuals |
EDITORS NOTE: In the eighth in our year-long series on diabetes, the focus is on the specifics of effectively managing this chronic disease.
It is possible to live a long and healthy life, even with diabetes.
The key to living well with diabetes is learning how to manage the disease. Good management helps prevent or slow the progress of the many complications of diabetes: heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, blindness and nerve damage that causes painful hands and feet.
Other articles in this diabetes series have explained the importance of eating healthy and getting regular exercise. Doing both will help keep blood sugar (glucose) at a safe level, and blood pressure and cholesterol under control.
If youve lived with diabetes for a while, you may know how to keep your blood sugar under control most of the time. However, occasionally things get out of whack, for any number of reasons, and adjustments have to be made.
Only about a third of people with type 2 diabetes say they are very successful at managing their diabetes, according to a survey by the Consumer Reports National Research Center. This article will explain what to do when your diabetes-care routine gets off the rails.
Monitoring and controlling your blood sugar is the most important way to successfully manage diabetes. An A1C test measures your average glucose level over the past three months. Your A1C should be under 7 and your blood sugar should be under 154. If your doctor also does a fasting blood sugar test, it should be between 80 an Continue reading
