"Blood testing is especially critical if you have a family history of diabetes, are overweight, have a large abdominal waist circumference, and/or have other signs or symptoms of metabolic disease. For millions of Americans, the test results will be an unwelcome surprise. However, the good news is that early detection is an opportunity to prevent complications or, if caught early enough, to reverse course."

"It is important to remind patients that countries whose populations have traditionally consumed high-carbohydrate diets—such as Asian countries, where rice and noodles are dietary staples and meat and dairy consumption is much less prevalent than in Western countries—have historically had very low diabetes rates. You can also help patients ensure nutritional adequacy by asking them to take a daily multivitamin."

"The glycosylated hemoglobin test has to do with how much protein hemoglobin in the red blood cells is glycosylated. One can use it to monitor the diabetic process every three to four months. There is also the fructosamine test, which can be done on a monthly basis. We like to test both glycolylated hemoglobin and fructosamine. These tests can be thrown off by any occasion that creates an impaired glucose tolerance, including use of medications such as diuretics, glucocorticoids, nicotinic acid, and phenoytin."

"FILTERING YOUR WATER Compressed, activated, charcoal block filters are an inexpensive way to get protection from the carbon-based organic pollution, pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, PCBs, cysts, heavy metals, asbestos, VOCs (volatile organic chemicals), and THMs in our water. They also eliminate chlorine and foul odors. They do not, however, absorb inorganic mineral salts such as chloride, fluoride, sodium, nitrates, and soluble minerals."

"Some research suggests that exercise increases the number of insulin receptors in IDDM.199 In Type-1 diabetics, there needs to be a little bit of attention when exercising because exercise may create an immediate release of lactic acid and glucagons, which may increase the blood sugar level, especially for those whose blood sugar levels are above 250 mg. Another danger of exercise is that if you have very low glucose while on your insulin, your body may switch to fat to get energy, and this could result in ketoacidosis."

"Smoking affects both carbohydrate and lipid metabolism. In one study of diabetics, 114 smokers were compared to 49 nonsmokers. The smokers had a 15-20 percent higher insulin requirement and serum triglyceride concentration. In heavy smokers the insulin requirement was 30 percent higher. Researchers have found that chronic smokers were likely to be more insulin resistant, hyperinsulinemic, and dyslipidemic compared to matched groups of nonsmokers. It is believed that catecholamines, a type of hormone, are produced in greater quantity in smokers and act as an antagonist to insulin action."

"In addition to its ability to bind to protein molecules and act as a shield against sugar molecules, thus preventing glycation, carnosine can also stimulate enzymes and other substances to eliminate damaged, glycated protein. In these ways, carnosine helps reduce the impact of diabetic complications. When carnosine has been compared with the antiglycating drug aminoguanidine, the supplement has proved to be similarly effective, likely because it inhibits glycation earlier in the process than does the drug."

"If you experience panic attacks or episodes of high anxiety, it is critical that you talk to your physician about treatment. Recognition and treatment of panic disorder and other psychological problems can go a long way toward improving your quality of life. THE VALUE OF SUPPORT The best diet, exercise plan, supplement program, glucose monitoring, stress management, and pharmaceutical treatment plan in the world won't do you a bit of good unless you implement them and maintain consistency with your program."

"If you guessed that steaming is better than roasting or grilling, you're right. What's Cooking The problem is not with the carrots or corn itself. The key issue is how the food is prepared. Processing and cooking foods at high temperatures results in what is called the Maillard reaction, in which sugars (those that are a natural part of the food or those that have been added, such as fructose and corn syrup), proteins, and some fats interact and form advanced glycation end products (AGEs) and advanced lipoxidation end products (ALEs), as discussed in chapter 1."

"Even modest amounts of trans fats (less than what the average American currently consumes) are associated with an almost 40 percent increase in the risk of developing diabetes! The researchers at Wake Forest University found that feeding trans fats (in amounts comparable to what people eat in fried foods) to monkeys led to a gain of 7.2 percent more body weight over six years. That's equivalent to about an 11-pound increase for a 150-pound person. Furthermore, monkeys consuming the trans fats had 30 percent more belly fat. In contrast, monkeys that consumed olive oil had only a 1."

"Furthermore, it raises blood pressure, which is associated with overweight and diabetes. Some evidence indicates that fructose and high-fructose corn syrup have a more pronounced effect than do glucose and sucrose on taste receptors, imprinting both the tongue and the brain with a stronger desire for sweet foods throughout life. There is also evidence that fructose and high-fructose corn syrup modify the brain's appetite-regulating centers."

"The loss of protein through the kidneys can also diminish. You will find more details on all of these in Chapter 13. FIRST STEPS One of the things we have carefully tested with this program is how people feel about it. Bottom line: Although you will be making major changes in your menu that are designed to bring you uncompromised good health, this is perhaps the easiest diet change to stick with over the long run. Partly, that is because it is not a "diet." It is a different way of regarding food—a much better way of thinking about and enjoying it."

"Liver damage and aggravation of diabetes are potential dangers of such high doses. People with a history of liver disease or abnormal liver function, diabetes, peptic ulcers, gout, cardiac arrhythmias, inflammatory bowel disease, migraine headaches, or alcoholism are more susceptible to the adverse effects of excessive nicotinic acid intake. Doses of 3000 mg or more per day are potentially dangerous therapies and must be supervised. The average diet supplies an adequate amount of niacin. Niacin is not stored in the body."

"Almost 20 percent of people older than age sixty-five have diabetes. Type 2 diabetes, often caused by obesity, accounts for 90 to 95 percent of these cases. Type 2 diabetes reduces the Ufe expectancy of middle-aged people by five to ten years and is undiagnosed in 10 to 15 percent of people over the age of fifty. Additionally, people with diabetes are about twice as likely to have arteriosclerosis or ischemic heart disease and are two and a half times more likely to have a stroke than people without diabetes. ?"

"More often than not, doctors relate the two only when they diagnose an overt hormonal disease such as diabetes (insulin deficiency) or Addison's disease (Cortisol deficiency), which are at one extreme end of the scale. The problem with this thinking is that hormonal problems don't happen overnight. For example, it takes years before a subtle insulin imbalance (now known as metabolic syndrome or insulin resistance) becomes clinical diabetes. What's more, an insulin imbalance begins silently, without symptoms—and blood tests don't reveal this early problem."

"On top of that, University of Toronto researchers have recently found that higher doses of PGX?can diminish appetite to such an extent that even the heaviest individuals have a dramatic and sustainable reduction in appetite. Table 9.3 provides a summary of the clinical effects of PGX? Because PGX?can be given at much smaller quantities than other viscous dietary fibers to achieve comparable health benefits, it is a much more practical recommendation, especially when taken in capsule form. The typical dosage for PGX?is 1,000 mg three times daily with Table 9.3."

"If your ratio is 0.96 to 1.0 (men) or 0.81 to 0.85 (women), you have a moderate risk. • If your ratio is 1.1 (men) or 0.86 (women) or higher, you have a high risk. Are You Prediabetic or Overweight? Take the Quiz We would like you to take a few minutes to answer the questions on the following quizzes, which assess your risk of being prediabetic or overweight. The first two quizzes are for women, and the second two are for men. (Some questions are identical, but others differ.) Be honest in your answers. No one except you has to see them."

"Imagine if your eyes were damaged by the disease. An ophthalmologic surgeon, laser in hand, would carefully try to repair your tender retinas. But what if foods could help avert this damage in the first place? A diet change that brings your blood sugar under control, brings your blood pressure down, and helps rejuvenate your arteries gives a measure of respite to the tiny blood vessels in your eyes. It does the same for the tiny vessels that make up the filtering unit in your kidneys, making it less likely that you will ever need dialysis. And of course, it works powerfully inside the heart."

"A question from a concerned parent who has written in asking if there was any link between Prevnar and diabetes, for instance, is answered in the negative. Pelton does not disclose alarming information given to the FDA by Dr J. Bart Classen, who speculated that Prevnar 'may be seven times as toxic as the haemophilus vaccine, possibly causing an estimated 400 to 700 children to develop insulin-dependent diabetes per 100,000 children immunised'. These cases of diabetes, Classen said, 'may not occur until three to 10 years following immunisation'."

"What's more, too much Cortisol at the wrong times can initiate an inflammatory process that researchers now believe triggers chronic diseases, including diabetes, arthritis, allergies, some forms of cancer—and, I believe, Spent. There has been some amazing research in the last few years about the effect of sugar on the body. Not only does eating too much sugar lead to obesity, diabetes, and tooth decay, it is also one of the biggest contributors to low energy and feelings of being overwhelmed—it has even been scientifically linked to depression."

"People with diabetes who benefited most from this dietary switch: those with high triglycerides and low levels of 'good' cholesterol." Clearly, the consumption of refined carbohydrates is a major causative factor of heart disease, which is one of the leading killers in the United States and other modern societies. But the dangers of refined carbohydrates don't stop there... Carbohydrates and mental disorders "Numerous studies of depressed individuals have shown a high occurrence of hypoglycemia."

"Diabetes A certain inbred strain of mice has a genetic disorder that causes them to develop diabetes. Their pancreatic beta cells, those cells in the pancreas that make insulin, are also spontaneously destroyed during the course of their lifetime. When this strain of mice was given 0.4% DHEA in their diet, the diabetes was rapidly reversed and the beta cells were preserved. In a study of other animals without this genetic disorder, DHEA reduced the severity of diabetes resulting from administering the diabetes-inducing chemical, streptozotocin."

"Some authorities have called for lowering your LDL by 30 to 40 percent regardless of what your starting level is.4 Your risk of heart problems drops as LDL decreases, until you reach a level of approximately 40 mg/dl (1.0 mmol/1).5 High-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol. HDL cholesterol is often called good cholesterol because it carries cholesterol out of the body. Generally speaking, the higher your HDL cholesterol, the better. Current goals are to have an HDL level above 45 mg/dl (1.2 mmol/1) for men and above 55 mg/dl (1.4 mmol/1) for women."

"Given the overwhelming evidence of the link between trans fats and diseases like cancer, cardiovascular disease and diabetes — all of which will be discussed in more detail - you might wonder what sort of bizarre justification the FDA could come up with for protecting the food industry by not requiring the listing of trans fats on these nutrition facts labels years ago. Hold on to your seat, because here it is: The FDA has decided that since trans fats should be entirely avoided in the diets of all human beings, there is consequently no recommended daily allowance of trans fats."

"In order to achieve blood sugar levels that are consistently as close to normal as possible, type 1 diabetics must replicate this natural situation as closely as possible. This means that they need to monitor their blood sugar frequently, and they must learn to use this information to make ongoing adjustments to their insulin injections, diet, and exercise. Until the most recent past, type 1 diabetics were often prescribed combinations of short- and medium-action or long-action insulin one to two times per day, and many diabetics measured their blood infrequently?some less than once per day."

"HOMA) score, which blood-sugar level assesses your ability to make insulin and your appears normal, degree of insulin resistance. (See page 40 for more on HOMA scores.) Hemoglobin Alc This test, commonly abbreviated as HbAlc and called glycated hemoglobin, looks at how blood sugar has damaged proteins in your blood. In doing so, the test provides a snapshot of your average glucose levels over the previous six weeks. HbAlc levels are measured as a percentage, using the symbol %."

"We feel that the newer methods, the pump or pen, are preferable (see Table 8.2). Table 8.2. Advantages of Intensive Insulin Therapy with the Insulin Pump or Pen ! Greater flexibility of meals, exercise, and daily schedule ; Improved physical and psychological well-being ; Tighter control of blood glucose level Lower glycosylated hemoglobin (hemoglobin A,C) The Insulin Pump The insulin pump method involves filling a syringe with soluble insulin. The syringe is placed in a pump device and connected via a hollow flexible hose to a needle which is inserted into a site on the abdomen."

"Dr. Vuksan and his colleagues have conducted extensive research with dietary fibers through his role as a director in the Risk Factor Modification Centre at St. Michael's Hospital at the University of Toronto. Hundreds of different fiber combinations were tested in laboratory, animal, and human studies before the PGX?formulation was established. Highly refined and uniquely processed PGX?possesses the greatest viscosity (gelling property) of any single dietary fiber. It is three times as viscous as guar and approximately seven times as viscous as psyllium."

"As you'll learn here, these ingredients are responsible for causing cancer, heart disease, diabetes, nervous system disorders, and much more. And the most amazing part in all this is that you can go to any grocery store and find these exact ingredients listed right on the labels! Let's start with one of the most toxic additives of all: sodium nitrite. Sodium Nitrite Virtually all bacon is packaged and treated with an ingredient known as sodium nitrite."

"If a child has diabetes, he or she can't eat certain foods at a birthday party. You're not depriving that child, and it's not excessive for a parent to say, "Johnny has diabetes, so he's going to skip the cake." But what if Johnny has ADD/ADHD or something that looks like it? Then it's likely that everyone's reaction is less empathetic. You'll probably hear something along the lines of "Aw, come on. Just let the kid have some cake." What most people don't understand is that the cake and the other sugar-filled foods take the fun out of the birthday party for Johnny."
