At this point I think it still needs some work. Food log I would not use, but when I went to put in "walking on a treadmill at 3.8 mph for 45 minutes" it could not find walking on a treadmill! I'll pass on the tool for now. I don't think most of this type of program would cover my activities too well. Thanks anyway.View Thread
I guess I missed it, I found it from a recent article posted somewhere else.
Just about everything in the health area is more complicated than some people think, I am just now one of them. One of the best examples is the "common cold" as so many theorists point out, if it were so common a cure would be easy-it's not! Diabetes T2 is much the same. We have to get down to the causative factors and make appropriate adjustments to prevent the landslide of this disease.View Thread
I guess someone had to find a correlation eventually. At any rate a recent study by the Boston Children's Hospital shows a 20% greater chance of diabetes in areas of high particulate air pollution. The link at the hospital is here: http://www.childrenshospital.org/newsroom/Site1339 /mainpageS1339P1sublevel663.html It should be interesting to hear from those of you out there living in areas with greater air pollution. Once more environmental factors not under your control account for part of your diabetic problem. More and more I believe we need to look at external environmental factors along with internal personal health factors when dealing with prevention and cure of diabetes.View Thread
It's a little like the old liar story, you constantly lie, when it comes where the truth really counts no one believes. When you are constantly negative, when it counts, who really knows you are in needView Thread
My own research on Agave had lead me to believe that it was not a diabetic friendly sweetener. There really is not any sweetener that is health friendly. All are either processes sugars, or chemical substitutions that have very little history for long term use. Even sugar alcohols have carb grams and do cause diarrhea or headaches in some % of the population.View Thread
You write it I'll buy it. I am constantly buying books about the condition, but watch closely the copyright date. It is amazing how so many books are in print from the 90's about diabetes. Standard textbook life in most schools is 7-9 years.View Thread
I believe that only your Dr.s can determine your diabetic type. However it is time for you to step up to the plate and take control of your domain-that is the amount of food you eat, and the type of food you eat. It really is amazing what the mind can tell the body about food and choices. I have come to recognize white carbs as being poisonous for me. There fore as I would not eat rat poison, I don't eat that donut, or that piece of white bread. I limit the red meats, but do eat them maybe once or twice a month-other than a slice of ham in the morning. I have tripled veggies, and have at least one salad as a meal each day. Comes to a point I get excited over a really good salad, or stir fried veggies seasoned just right. I still have one piece of chocolate a day. Point is, do you want to live a full life, or suffer the consequences of uncontrolled diabetes whether 1 or 2. The choice is yours.View Thread
