Diabetes prevalence has been rising more rapidly in middle- and low-income countries. Diabetes is a major cause of blindness, kidney failure, heart attacks, stroke and lower limb amputation.
I thought the research you have performed in relation to diabetes and muscle mass was very What is diabetes. You have successfully cured the diabetes which was identified in November by a combination of diet and exercise. Originally the random blood glucose was 18 with a haemoglobin A1c of You told me that you had also been found to be deficient in vitamin D and had been taking a supplement, although at a relatively low dose by the sounds of things.
I am pleased to inform you that your haemoglobin A1c is now 5. This is well within the normal limits.
Your lipid profile is favourable with regards to future risks of heart disease with a total cholesterol of 3. The only fly in the ointment is the vitamin D level is still low at You know that you need to keep it up.
I think you need a significantly increased dose of vitamin D and would suggest for a month that you take international units daily available over the counter before reducing the dose back to international units daily.
Merry Christmas and happy New Year. Here are my latest blood test results showing my HbA1c on July20 at 5.
I had been taking 5, IU of Vitamin D3 per day for several months. Here are my continuous blood sugar results as measured by the Abbott Freestyle Libre Continuous Glucose Monitoring device for the week of AugustType2 Diabetics Have a Corrupted Fat Metabolism The solution is to be very specific about what fats you eat and what fats you do not eat.
Do not just eat less carb and more fat.
That will definitely put your insulin resistance up. It did with me for 3 years notwithstanding the perfect non diabetic sugar numbers I had due to all the exercise and the low carb diet. The good fats for a diabetic are fish based Omega3 anti-inflammatory fatty acids and plant based Omega3 alpha linolenic acid from flax seed and white NOT BLACK chia seed and milk fat in the form of butter whole milk or yoghurt NOT in the form of cheese, and that is it.
The bad fats are sat fat from meat particularly palmitic acid and Omega9 mono fat which is a lot less harmful and Omega6 poly fats which are not a problem in moderation for normal people but are a disaster for type2 diabetics whose increased insulin up-regulates their desaturase enzymes to the point where their Omega6 metabolism ceases to be balanced and becomes inflammatory which causes insulin resistance.
Industrial Trans fat is of course also a total disaster for everybody, whereas ruminant trans fat such as in meat and dairy is perhaps only slightly worse than sat fat.
It does not seem to matter what type of Omega6 you eat. It all manages to end up as Arachidonic Acid which is the most inflammatory fat there is. If high insulin resistance persists for months then capillary plaque may also start to form.
But the writer has had type for around 10 years 6 of which were undiagnosed and even now his non fasting insulin resistance appears to be more related to inflammation than plaque cholesterol is fine.Your tax-deductible gift today can fund critical diabetes research and support vital diabetes education services that improve the lives of those with diabetes.
How can a person know if they have diabetes, if they are at risk of developing it, and what happens if they do?
This article covers all you need to . When people eat a food containing carbohydrates, the digestive system breaks down the digestible ones into sugar, which enters the blood. As blood sugar levels rise, the pancreas produces insulin, a hormone that prompts cells to absorb blood sugar for energy or storage.
Results from a new study may lead to approval of what could be the first drug that ameliorates potentially deadly reactions in children with severe peanut allergies.
