Pistachio Power

Pistachio Power!

A new study highlighted in the Tufts University Health and Nutrition Letter suggests that eating tree nuts such as Pistachios may help fight Type II  Diabetes.  Tree nuts include walnuts, hazelnuts,almonds,brazil nuts,cashews, pecans, pine nuts,macadamia nuts  and of course pistachios.

How Tree Nuts Help?

Tree nuts according to the report help the body better control blood sugar and help to reduce inflammation  Prediabetic patients in a study done in Spain ate two ounces or 57 grams of Pistachios daily.  After 4 months this group had significant reductions in blood sugar and insulin levels and showed a reduction of inflammation in their bodies.   It was pointed out that Pistachios are a concentrated energy source so you would need to eat them instead of something else you might eat to keep your calorie consumption under control.

A Powerful Pistachio Punch!

Two Ounces of Pistachios contain:

  • 321 Calories
  • 11.9 grams of protein
  • 5.6 grams of fiber
  • 16.7 grams of carbohydrates
  • 571 milligrams of potassium
  • 21 grams of unsaturated fat
  • 3 grams of saturated fat
  • no cholesterol

In conclusion studies showed adding more tree nuts into your diet may help to lower your levels of fasting glucose and your HbAic over time. A possible explanation offered is that tree nuts are high in healthy fats and fiber are low in carbohydrates and by substituting this for foods you should not be consuming you lower the glycemic load on your body.

How ESPN’s radio host Mike Golic controls his type 2 diabetes – Fox News

As a former NFL player, ESPN’S Mike Golic is used to talking sports news and game drama on his radio show Mike and Mike in the Morning. Now, he’s discussing a more serious topic, type 2 diabetes. Since being diagnosed with the disease 12 years ago,

Golic has been on a mission to raise awareness and help people learn how to manage their blood sugar

“My advice to people with type 2 diabetes is get everybody involved in your life. It’s not something to run from, hide from, [and] keep it a secret from everybody else. You’ve been diagnosed with it, you have to deal with it,” Mike Golic, now 54, told Fox News.

Golic admitted that during his time as a defensive lineman he never thought anything could be physically wrong with him other than a few bruises or tears. But in the back of his mind, he knew his father had type 2 diabetes, which raised his risk.

“While it was a, ‘Oh man’ there was like a ‘Yeah, OK, my dad was right about this age when he was diagnosed,’ so while it was surprising it wasn’t shocking,” he said.

According to the National Institute of Health (NIH), having a parent or sibling with the disease can increase your risk. Other risk factors include being overweight, having an unhealthy diet and high blood pressure.

Growing up, Golic said his father kept his condition to himself and didn’t talk about it with his family.

“It was just kind of his thing to deal with,” he said. “But I wanted to be very proactive and involve my wife, involve my family, I have three kids [and] two boys are large football players whose grandfather had type 2 diabetes and I have type 2 diabetes, so I wanted to keep them in the loop on this and what needed to be done.”

After teaming up with Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Golic and his doctors came up with a game plan to keep his blood sugar levels in check. Type 2 diabetes can be treated with a variety of different medications. He turned to INVOKANA® (canagliflozin), a prescription medicine his doctor recommended.

In addition to medicine, eating healthy and regularly exercising can also help manage the disease.

If left untreated, type 2 diabetes can cause serious and even deadly complications.

“You can have retinopathy or eye disease, you can have kidney disease and ultimately it can lead to kidney failure and you can have neuropathy which is a disease of the nerve ending which ultimately can cause amputations,” Dr. John Anderson, a board-certified Internist at Frist Clinic in Nashville, Tenn., told Fox News. “You’re also a 2- to 3-fold increase risk of heart attack and stroke.”

Early diagnosis should be accessible during routine exams or physicals when physicians check a patient’s blood sugar level. But other signs and symptoms may include thirst, frequent urination, blurred vision, fatigue and weight loss, Anderson said.

“We have about 89 million people in the country with prediabetes, that means their numbers are not quite in the range that you’d diagnose diabetes but they’re on their way,” Anderson who is a long-time volunteer for the American Diabetes Association (ADA), and has served as Chair of National Advocacy said. “That’s why you need to be seeing your health care  professional, getting your screenings, getting your glucoses checked, being proactive.”

Today, Golic gets his A1C1 test, a blood test that measures the average level of glucose in the blood, every three-to-four months and has kept his diabetes under control.

“This is a situation that can have some complications in your life if you don’t treat it the right way, so why not get people involved, why not start with your doctor— ‘OK this is the game plan,’ and then you go to the people in your family— ‘this is the game plan my doctor gave me, this is what I need to do and I need all your help to do it,’” Golic said.

The Perfect Treatment for Diabetes and Weight Loss

 

 

Is type 2 diabetes incurable? Must it get worse with age? Or as a society are We treating it wrong? Or do we treat it at all?  My name is Andreas Eenfeldt from Diet Doc. Welcome Dr. Jason Fung. I have just listened to your lecture. It was fantastic. It was about how we treat diabetics in health care today. It is not a disease that must necessarily  get worse with age. We have always said that it is a chronic condition that worsens with age.This is the view of the diabetes associations, both in the US and in Australia. Everyone says it is a chronic disease.

But it is not true. It is indeed easy to see. If someone said, “I was told I had diabetes,” – – “but I lost weight and lowered my carbs.” “Now I take no medication and am doing well.” It is true after all! No one believes that they are lying. A patient who loses weight, put on a diet  -is of course healthier. How can they be healthier if the disease is chronic and only going to get worse? Everyone knows that the drugs do not help against the disease itself. Type 2 diabetes depends on too high insulin resistance.

It is all agreed. High resistance to insulin makes blood sugar levels rise. But the disease is the high insulin resistance. But all treatment focuses still on blood sugar. It is not logical.   Treatment of symptoms does not help against the disease,as we have done with diabetes. We treat blood sugar. But the disease depends on insulin resistance. Since we do not treat the disease  only the symptoms nothing improves. It takes more and more medication to keep blood sugar at the same level. The diabetes is worse even if blood sugar is better. The diabetes is worse than ever.

Insulin Resistance’s not treated. Those who lose weight, exercise  have affected insulin resistance, and therefore a lower blood sugar.

We have dealt with in the short term and reduced sugar. What happens then with the disease?

The funny thing is that patients know this. I talk with many patients. They tell me that when they got insulin they immediately gained weight. It’s no secret. You gain weight taking insulin. They take insulin and gain weight. Then they come back to the doctor. “I needed to lose weight, but get medicine that cause weight gain!?” And the doctor responds: “You need insulin

– Therefore, you must treat it. – What do you do if you have type 2 diabetes? It is a diet-related disease. Type 2 diabetes involves too much sugar. Once you have realized it, the solution is to do away with the sugar. Then remove all sugar and simple carbs, which also is the sugar -As bread and pasta. Carbohydrates are the only chains of sugar. When we eat, it breaks down into sugar. You have to stop eating sugar.

Diabetes Destroyer , An Inside Look

Product Description:  This product is aimed at and for Type II Diabetics.

29.1 million people or 9.3% of the population has diabetes. The number is broken down into 21 million people who have been diagnosed… and 8.1 million people walking around undiagnosed according to a recent report.  This is just in the US alone. The number is much larger if one considers the global population.

Many people do not realize just how dangerous diabetes is. It is the leading cause of kidney failure, amputations and blindness. It also sets the stage for other fatal diseases to take root.
The fact is that probably either you or someone you know and care about has diabetes.

The only consolation is that you’re not alone… but this is just a small consolation.
Diabetes can literally cripple your life… if you let it. They key point to note here is that you are in control. Diabetes is a disease that can be controlled.
In most cases, poor food choices and a sedentary lifestyle exacerbate the problem. People tend to bury their heads in the sand and expect diabetes to just go away.
It’s not happening. In fact, neglecting to arrest diabetes in its tracks is the biggest mistake you can make. You do not want to receive a wake-up call when the doctor tells you that your left leg needs to be amputated from the knee down. By then it’s too late…
So what do you do?

Simple. You do what the Diabetes Destroyer advises.
The title may seem like an exaggeration. After all, how do you destroy a disease that even doctors say is incurable?
You destroy it by controlling it to the point, it is almost reversed. You absolutely MUST get diabetes under control in order to live in peace without health issues. Correct knowledge is essential here.
It’s understandable if you’re skeptical.   The internet is littered with bogus products that claim to do miracles. It’s easy to get jaded.
However, the Diabetes Destroyer has sold thousands of copies and has become an online bestseller.   It has been one of the top rated Clickbank Product’s on their site for years.  Thousands have benefitted from this program and have successfully gotten their diabetes under control with the correct steps and measures.
The creator of the program, David Andrews, has placed a lot of emphasis on diet and lifestyle changes that will help lower one’s blood sugar levels. You’ll find an engaging video on the official website… but if you prefer reading, there is a text option where you can just read about the product and what it entails.

The Good Points:

1) You are given a meal plan that is highly effective. Let’s face the facts here. You must change your diet. You can’t control your diabetes by guzzling sodas and chomping on donuts. Something’s gotta go. You definitely need the meal plan in this program.

2) The meal plan is tasty and has variety. You really will not need to give up your favorite foods. Moderation is the mantra here. This will make compliance much easier.

3) You are taught meal timings and frequency. This is especially important for diabetes patients. Waiting too long between meals can cause insulin surges which should be avoided. Diabetes Destroyer tells you how often you should eat to keep your sugar levels stable.

4) The program has a video that shows you how to reduce insulin insensitivity. This is fantastic for helping you to lose weight. The list of foods that spike your insulin levels will guide you on which foods to avoid or consume minimally. This is priceless advice for combating blood sugar spikes.

5) Over 25,000 people have benefitted from this program. It even comes with a 60-day money back guarantee. There is no risk at all.
The Bad Points:

1) The program requires discipline and consistency. Knowledge is not enough to get diabetes under control. You MUST apply what you learn in the Diabetes Destroyer.  Diabetes Destroyer is a product aimed at Type II Diabetes.

2) You may find conspiracy theories in the guide about major pharmaceutical companies would rather treat you than cure you because of the profit motive not to your liking and you can decide for yourself where you stand… but what really matters is that you focus on the diet and lifestyle advice to get your diabetes in check.

3) With any change in life, there will always be some challenge and inertia to overcome. You will need to persevere and take positive steps to change in your life. You can do it if you want it bad enough.
Should You Get It?
If you have Type II diabetes, then you definitely should. If you know someone who has Type II diabetes and you want to help them, this program will change their life for the better.
While you could go online and do your own research, you will come across so much conflicting information that you will suffer an information overload. You need one resource that guides your from A to Z and tells you exactly what to do.
The Diabetes Destroyer does that. All you need to do is follow it. Save yourself time and effort and do what matters – get your diabetes under control with a proven program that delivers results. Time is of the essence.

I picked this up myself in May of 2016 after being diagnosed as prediabetic.    The initial product offers a over 100 page PDF Report.  It also included the Accelerated Fat burning guide as losing weight greatly aids in reducing insulin resistance. 12 videos with transcripts and several premium reports.  I purchased the upsell which has numerous additional videos with transcripts, a cookbook and more in- depth information you may wish to consider.

If you are a newly diagnosed diabetic and want a plan and a quick education on the disease and how to deal with it then I think you will benefit from this product.  The advice is consistent with my personal recomendations.

Diabetes: Diabetes Diet: Foods You Wish You Knew To Reverse Diabetes:: 20 Superfoods, Herbs & Drinks To Change Your Life

Mark’s Note:
I am skeptical of any book that promises to reverse or cure diabetes or claims I can still eat all my favorite foods. From my experience that is just not true. I agree with the author though that just using medication to make your symptoms go away is not the answer either. Diet, eating certain diabetes friendly foods and herbs and spices though is not a bad idea so you might pick up some valuable information but as always use your own common sense and test, test, test.
