Let Your Endocrinologist Look After All Your Diabetes Related Issues
If you have been living with diabetes, you will be able to appreciate the importance of keeping in close contact with your endocrinologist to help you prevent all the complications that accompany diabetes. Your endocrinologist is the person whom you need to contact quite frequently when you are suffering from diabetes.
Causes & Symptoms of Diabetes
One of the biggest myths out there about diabetes is that it is caused when you consume too much sugar either by way of processed sugary foods and drinks such as cakes, biscuits, chocolates and sodas amongst others. The truth is high blood sugar levels can be brought on by several other factors besides sugar. Some of the other common causes of diabetes include being overweight and leading a sedentary lifestyle. Having family members who are diabetic can also increase the risk.
How Can Diabetes Be Cured?
Diabetes is the most prevalent type of diabetes and affecting about 27 million people. It is usually caused by genes and extra weight, glucose in the liver, damaged beta cells, metabolic syndrome, and erratic communications between the cells of the body.
Adjusting Your Diabetic Diet for Special Occasions
If you are a diabetic, chances are good that you have experienced some stressful moments at birthdays, Thanksgivings, Christmases, and other occasions for celebration. On the one hand, you wanted to join in the feasting along with all of your friends and family members, but on the other hand, you had to be extremely careful about what you ate for the sake of your health, particularly since the food and drink served at celebrations tend to ignore the normal rules of moderation. Fortunately, even if you are a diabetic, there are some simple ways that you can still participate in all of the celebrations that you want to your heart’s content.
Type 2 Diabetes – The Health Benefits of Olive Oil
As fats go, olive oil is one of the best oils to use in your eating plan for good health. Oils creep in everywhere: cooking oils, salad oils, and vegetable oils are used in baking and snacks. The Mayo Clinic recommends olive oil when fat is needed anywhere in your Type 2 diabetic meal plan. This is not to say a large stack of white flour pancakes is made healthy by using olive oil when baking them. On the other hand, if you eat pancakes (make mine buckwheat), it is better to use than butter or margarine. In the Mediterranean region, where people eat more olive oil than anyone in the other areas, heart disease is rarer than in other parts of the world.
