Diabetes Information

Learn More About Diabetes

Diabetes Information

Diabetes is a disease that affects more than 25.8 million people in the United States alone. Broken down, 18.8 million people have already been diagnosed with diabetes and another 7 million people have it, but have not yet been diagnosed. Another 79 million adults have a condition known as prediabetes. Prediabetes is when blood glucose levels are higher than normal, but not high enough to be considered diabetic.

 

Although there are 3 different types of diabetes: type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes and gestational diabetes, type 2 diabetes is the most common type of diabetes. Having diabetes, regardless of which type you have, means that there is too much glucose in the blood.  

If current trends continue, it is believed 1 in 3 American adults will have diabetes by the year 2050. 90- 95% of all people that have diabetes, have type 2 diabetes. With type 2 diabetes, either the body’s cells are not able to properly use the available insulin to regulate glucose levels or the pancreas simply does not produce enough insulin. Some common symptoms of diabetes include excessive thirstiness, excessive urination, blurred vision, fatigue and wounds that take a long time to heal. In certain instances, some people may not experience any of the typical diabetes symptoms.

There are certain risk factors that will increase your chances of developing type 2 diabetes. These risk factors include the following:

  • Family history of diabetes
  • Being overweight
  • Lack of physical activity
  • People over age 45
  • Certain Race/Ethnicity- Latin Americans, Latinos, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders
  • High blood pressure
  • People with low HDL cholesterol levels (good cholesterol)
  • High triglycerides
  • Women who have previously had gestational diabetes
  • Having prediabetes

 

If you have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, it is imperative that you begin taking care of yourself.  This means you will have to lose weight, eat healthier, get plenty of exercise, stop smoking and check your blood glucose levels often. Making changes to your lifestyle will help you avoid serious complications that could eventually cause kidney disease, loss of a limb or blindness.  

Although managing type 2 diabetes can primarily be controlled with diet and exercise, over time you may need to take medication. Your doctor may need to switch your medication or add to your existing medication treatment. Additionally, some people with type 2 diabetes may even require insulin therapy. Getting started on a treatment plan is always difficult, but over time, it will become routine.

Diabetes is not just a disease; it’s a way of life. Although there is no cure for diabetes, with proper diet, exercise, medication and with strict monitoring of your blood glucose levels, you can manage this disease and live a long, healthy and active life.

On MedicationCoupons.com, you will find the largest collection of coupons for diabetes testing supplies and medication.

There are some great organizations geared to help people with diabetes. In addition to learning some valuable information, you will also be able to find sample meal plans, recipes and exercise tips.

Heart Healthy Foods

Heart Healthy Foods

Foods for Heart Health

As discussed in a prior newsletter, heart disease is the #1 killer of Americans today. We’ve learned that simple lifestyle changes in diet and exercise can greatly reduce your chances of developing heart disease. In this issue, we decided to list  foods that people should add to their daily diet to get heart healthy.

Chocolate – Who doesn’t like chocolate? I think almost everyone does, but it’s the type of chocolate you eat that makes all the difference in your health. Forget the white chocolate and milk chocolate; you need to reach for the dark chocolate. Dark chocolate is chock full of the powerful antioxidant called cocoa phenols. Cocoa phenols help to keep the bad cholesterol from forming in the arteries as plaque build up. The higher the cocoa content, the more heart health benefits it has. Shoot for at least 70% cocoa. It may take some time getting used to it, but you will.

Beans and legumes- Beans and legumes contain a high amount of protein, soluble fiber, folate, magnesium and phosphate. Beans contain many nutrients that contribute to lowering cholesterol and blood pressure. Since beans come in so many different varieties, it will be easy to find one that you like. Beans and legumes including kidney beans, black beans, black eyed peas and lentils can easily be added to many foods such as salads, rice dishes, soups and stews. Aim for 3- 4 servings of beans and legumes weekly.

Potatoes- As long as you do not consume them in their unhealthy form, chips or french fries, potatoes can actually be very healthy for you.  Potatoes are rich in potassium, vitamins B and C and contain a good amount of fiber. Potatoes are also high in Carotenoids, another powerful antioxidant that aids in heart health. Carotenoids help to prevent heart attack and heart disease by keeping bad cholesterol from developing. Potatoes are also effective in lowering blood pressure levels. This is because the high potassium levels balance out the sodium in the diet. In order for the potato to stay healthy, avoid butter and sour cream, both of which will add a lot of extra fat and calories.

Flaxseed- Flaxseed is relatively new to the health scene. Flaxseed is rich in Omega 3’s. Omega 3’s are an “essential fat” that help support heart health. Omega 3’s also help to lower blood pressure and normalize the heart beat. Flaxseed is also the richest form of lignans. Lignans help to prevent heart disease, certain cancers and osteoporosis. Flaxseed also helps to raise good cholesterol levels and keep the arteries clear of plaque build-up. Flaxseed can easily be added to salads, soups, cereal and oatmeal. Pregnant women and breastfeeding women should consult their doctors before adding flaxseed to their diets.

Tomatoes- Tomatoes are a super health food that is most beneficial to your health when it is eaten cooked or processed, rather than raw. Tomatoes are high in Vitamin c, Vitamin a, calcium and potassium. But what makes tomatoes stand out in a crowd is that it is loaded with lycopene, a powerful antioxidant. It is believed that the lycopene in tomatoes can help reduce cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of a heart attack. The best sources of lycopene include tomato sauce, tomato paste, ketchup, tomato juice and tomato soup.

Fruits- Fruits contain vitamins a and c, and high levels of the antioxidant, polyphenol.  Studies show that eating moderate amounts of fruit daily may reduce the build up of plaque in the arteries that lead to heart disease and high blood pressure. At one time, 5 daily servings of fruit were thought to be enough, but now the goal is 8 servings. Researchers have found that people who ate 8 or more servings of fruit daily were 22% less likely to die from heart disease than people who only ate 3 servings or less a day.*

Veggies –Consuming 5-8 servings of fruits and vegetables daily, have a positive effect on heart health. Vegetables contain antioxidants. Antioxidants help to reduce free radicals in the body which can lead to heart disease. According to research, consuming a healthy amount of fruits and vegetables appear to have an effect on genes that are connected to heart disease.** When choosing vegetables, think leafy greens and veggies with bright colors. You can easily add vegetables to salads, soups and sandwiches. Be sure to wash your veggies thoroughly and avoid using too much butter and fats. Steaming is always best, as it retains most of vegetables’ nutrients.

Whole Grains- Studies show that consuming at least 3 daily servings of whole grains may significantly help to reduce the odds of developing heart disease and stroke. Whole grains also help to reduce cholesterol, weight and high blood pressure, all of which aid in remaining heart healthy. Some examples of whole grains include popcorn, brown rice, whole grain bread, barley, bulgur and whole wheat pasta. Don’t be tempted to add butter or other fats to the whole grains.

Alcohol – Studies have shown that consuming alcohol in moderation may reduce the risk of developing heart disease, by as much as 25%.*** Research also shows that alcohol may raise good cholesterol levels, as well. Moderate consumption consists of 1 alcoholic drink for women and 2 for men, daily. There are some people who should not drink alcohol, including those with liver disease, pregnant women and people who are taking certain medications.

Fish – Fish has a positive effect on heart health. But did you know that what type of fish you eat, how often you eat it and how it is prepared plays a significant role? The best types of fish to eat are those that are rich in Omega 3 fatty acids; Omega 3’s help to lower your chance of developing heart disease. The best fish to eat for heart health include salmon, sardines, mackerel and herring. It is recommended to eat at least 2 servings of these fatty fish a week. The best way to prepare fish in order to provide the most health benefits are baked and broiled; do not eat fried fish. Frying your fish will eliminate many of the health benefits. It is important to note that some fish contain high levels of mercury. Eating too much mercury may lead to a build up of toxins in the body. Pregnant women, women who are breast feeding and children younger than 12, may want to limit their fish intake.

Oatmeal is a great heart healthy food. Although it falls under the whole grain category, it is mighty enough to mention on its own. For starters, oatmeal contains large amounts of antioxidants. Oatmeal is also rich in soluble fiber. This type of fiber helps to lower bad cholesterol (LDL). Another benefit of fiber is that it will help you feel fuller longer, which will lead to less eating. This results in obtaining and maintaining a healthy weight, which contributes to heart health. Also, studies show that oats help to lower your blood pressure, another contributing factor of heart disease. In addition to having a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast, you can also add it to certain foods. Try it as a as a breading or filler for burgers, meatballs or meatloaf.

Coffee – Coffee is loaded with antioxidants. In fact, coffee has more antioxidants than any other food, including fruits and vegetables. Studies have shown that moderate coffee consumption may help to ward off certain diseases including heart disease and stroke. Before adding more coffee to your diet, check with your doctor as it could have negative effects for people with certain health conditions.

Nuts are a great snack that not only taste great, but can have positive effects on your heart and overall health. Most nuts contain good amounts of unsaturated fats, omega 3’s, fiber, vitamin E and plant sterols, all of which are heart healthy. The most ideal nuts to eat are almonds, pistachios, walnuts, peanuts, pecans and hazelnuts. Although nuts are healthy and contain healthy fats, they are high in calories. Once again, moderate consumption is key. Easily add your favorite nuts into cereal, oatmeal, salads and side dishes.

Cranberries- Although small in size, this berry really packs a punch. Cranberries contain no fat or cholesterol and very little sodium. Cranberries are also a good source of fiber, which helps to reduce the amount of bad cholesterol found in the body.  Cranberries may also boost good cholesterol levels, as well. Additionally, cranberries contain both polyphenols and flavonoids, 2 specific types of powerful antioxidants.

Well, now you know what foods you should be adding to your shopping list and your diet. If you have any concerns about these specific foods, please talk to your doctor or health care professional. But remember, in addition to eating these heart healthy foods, getting plenty of exercise is also important for heart health.

Health Benefits of Coffee

Monday, February 13th, 2012
The Health Benefits of Coffee

Coffee's Health Benefits

I don’t know about you, but the second I wake up I rush downstairs to make myself a cup of coffee. The smell of fresh coffee brewing and the sounds of the coffee pot percolating, leave me eager to pour myself a cup. It seems as if not that long ago, coffee used to get a really bad rap. And now, it has become a very talked about subject that appears to boast many health benefits.

Although there still may be a few downsides to coffee such as increasing one’s heart rate and blood pressure, it appears as if the good could far outweigh the bad. Studies show that drinking coffee in moderation, a few cups a day, may actually be good for you. For starters, coffee (caffeinated and decaf) is loaded with antioxidants. Antioxidants help prevent damage to the tissues caused by free radicals. And now, it appears as if there is new evidence that supports the fact that coffee may help with these other conditions as well:

Prevents diabetes –studies have shown that moderate coffee consumption (a few cups a day) may help to lower the risk of type 2 diabetes. This is true for both caffeinated and decaffeinated coffee

May lower one’s risk for heart disease and stroke- studies have shown that women who drink more than one cup of coffee per day, may be less likely to suffer a stroke. Studies also show that moderate to high consumption of caffeine in coffee may help reduce the risk for heart disease.

Decreased risk of Parkinson’s disease- studies show that people who drink coffee on a regular basis, may be more likely to not develop Parkinson’s disease.

Decreased risk of Alzheimer’s disease- studies have shown that the caffeine in coffee particularly, may offer protection against developing Alzheimer’s.

Decreased risk of liver cancer- Studies show that coffee may protect against cirrhosis of the liver and liver cancer.

Decreased risk of developing fatal prostate cancer- Men who drink six or more cups of coffee a day may be able to lower their risk of developing this kind of cancer by up to 60%. This holds true for men who consume both caffeinated and decaf coffee.

So if you’re among the millions of people that need to have their coffee fix to keep them going throughout the day, do it without guilt. It may actually benefit your health.

Important: Because some people may be prone to adverse reactions when drinking coffee, please make sure you consult your doctor before drinking it.
