Olive Oil Fights Diabetes: Study

Diabetes is a modern scourge, an illness we need to confront – and to whatever extent possible, conquer – so corporate wellness can flourish. Researchers at the University of Edinburgh and the University of Southampton found that sunshine may control metabolism to slow weight gain and the development of diabetes. Copious volume of literature exists on the use of mammalian islets, especially of porcine origin for diabetes reversal in humans with follow-up studies upto 10 yrs. Concern because diabetes continues to be a major problem in our state. Thanks to her diet and insulin plan, that has kept this doll on her toes for years. Similarly, mortality from diabetes has been steadily increasing from 22 in 2009 to 30 in 2013. Patients taking the hawthorn extract showed an average decrease of 2.6 points in diastolic blood pressure, which the authors of the study termed a “significant reduction.” They added that hawthorn could be used with other natural ways to lower one’s blood pressure, such as regular exercise and changes in diet and lifestyle.


With less IGF-1, the insulin they have is more sensitive to sugars, so these people are less likely to become resistant to insulin’s effects, and therefore practically shielded from developing diabetes, which occurs when the body fails to regulate the proper amount of insulin to process sugars in food. Insulin is made in the pancreas, an organ located behind the stomach. In Type I diabetes, pancreatic cells are destroyed. The classes educated me on what foods I should eat, how to prepare those foods and how to manage my medicine. Dantzler is aware that diabetes often runs in families and hopes that her children and grandchildren will not be affected with the disease that has taken so much from her. The members of the team also work with other units of the hospital in order to conduct a wide variety of researches: among others, a study on effective management of diabetes and comorbid depression was published last month, as the result of a collaboration between the Diabetes Clinic, the Health Psychology team, and the “Institut de recherche de l’Hôpital Montfort” (IRHM). The illness has long been regarded as a national epidemic.

It is another piece of evidence that the Mediterranean diet has health benefits,” said Laine, who was not involved in the research. Together we fielded questions that the community had about diabetes,  its complications, healthy food choices, appropriate exercise, blood testing, drug options and wound care. We have developed easy-to-use, tablet-based decision support systems for health workers for use in the community to facilitate the screening and referral of high-risk individuals and patients with diabetes and hypertension. I despair when I hear people talk about ‘fighting’ or ‘battling’ diabetes. The oil’s anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, among other factors, may explain the link, the researchers said. However, while the finding shows an association between long-term olive oil consumption and reduced risk of diabetes, it doesn’t establish a cause-and-effect relationship. People with diabetes, which has more than doubled in incidence worldwide in the past 30 years, have trouble controlling their blood sugar because they don’t produce the hormone insulin or don’t use it properly.

Saccharin was bitter tasting and no matter how hard I tried to imagine it tasted sweet, I did not like it!
