Diabetes – EAT FIT HEALTH

Second chances are rare when it comes to your health. I am addicted to My Fit Foods (MFF)! On average, participants lost 7 pounds and 3.5 percent of their body weight. After the initial self-blame and loathing, I decided that I had 2 choices, let diabetes control me or I took control of it, so I chose the latter and faced my demons. Four church ministers, after receiving Fit Body and Soul program training for 2 days, served as study interventionists. A recent report of over 25,000 subjects with diabetes in the Swedish National Diabetes Registry verifies this relationship in contemporary practice. Heart failure was defined as a prior clinical diagnosis of systolic or diastolic heart failure (heart failure with reduced or preserved left ventricular function).

To date, close to 500 individuals from 22 churches have participated in the program, resulting in an average weight loss of 4.6 pounds per participant. A whopping 70 percent of respondents willing to pay a premium–as much as 10 percent– for local food and these respondents said they were more willing to pay more for local than organic. There is a need for better ways to transport the existing glucose products. Although BBC News accurately reports that people who used Wii Fit Plus had improved body weight and HbA1c levels, these findings were also the case for people who received standard care. Shoe molds allow us to get an accurate shape of the bottom and lower sides of the foot, but do not help in determining how deep the shoe needs to be. Controlling diabetes with exercise should focus on controlling blood sugar levels; reducing body weight; and helping to decrease medication requirements. Type 2 – This is the most common type of diabetes.


In type 2 diabetes the body does not use insulin properly, called insulin resistance. The response has been amazing! However,  over time the pancreas is not able to make enough insulin to keep your blood glucose (sugar) at normal levels. Some persons with Type 2 are on insulin and other medications. And it was right before my period as well, and I get bloated. Learn more. Gestational – When a woman gets diabetes during pregnancy it is called Gestational Diabetes.

These woman have never had diabetes before and it goes away after pregnancy. Patients assigned to intensive treatment experienced a risk reduction of 25% (95% CI 7–40) for any microvascular end‐points (Table 1)6, but a benefit in terms of mortality or cardiovascular events was shown only in overweight patients treated with metformin8. On the other hand, foods made with whole grains such as whole grain breads and pastas, oatmeal, and air popped popcorn are better choices in terms of limiting the glucose spike post-meal. Damage to small blood vessels in the eyes, extremities (such as the toes), and kidneys sometimes leads to feared diabetic complications such as blindness, toe amputation, and kidney failure. Also, women with Gestational Diabetes are more than 7 times as likely to develop type 2 diabetes as women who didn’t have diabetes in pregnancy. Tour the local neighborhood or find a nature trail to explore. More is being learned about this type of diabetes.

Usually it is found in adulthood and often persons are misdiagnosed as Type 2 before getting properly diagnosed. In this type of diabetes there is a presence of auto-antibodies so it is an autoimmune disease. Genetics seem to play a role as well. Insulin is often needed within the first six years of diagnosis and those with LADA may need more insulin as they get older. Furthermore, insulin action in the critical period for extended-acting insulins (18–24 h) will be abnormal in people essentially fasted for that time, meaning the absolute clamp glucose infusion rates will not be a reliable reflection of the glucose-lowering efficacy of the studied insulin at those times (Table 1). There are many risk factors for diabetes, take the risk test to see if you are at risk and know your family history. The main analysis was based on apparently healthy men at baseline in the Aerobics Center Longitudinal Study (ACLS).

Know the diabetes related symptoms. Not everyone has the same symptoms. an A1C (your average blood sugar over the past 2-3 months), fasting blood glucose (morning blood glucose test after not eating for at least 8 hours before), random plasma glucose (a blood glucose over 200 mg/dl at any time with symptoms), and an oral glucose tolerance test or OGTT (tests your blood sugar before and after drinking a special sugary drink).
