Brother Stephen the work by T. Colin Campbell is worth a topic on its own. Start a new topic and we can discuss the importance of the study.

Is diabetes in your future?

By Pamela Allardice

Nearly three million Australians have syndrome X, or pre-diabetes, a condition where blood glucose levels are higher than normal, but not quite elevated enough to be classified as full-blown diabetes. It can easily worsen unless preventive measures are taken. Luckily, there are natural ways to protect yourself.

1. Go for whole grains: a Harvard University study has found that people who eat whole grains (e.g. brown rice and bran cereal) cut their diabetes risk by 42 percent. Whole grains keep fat off because they're high in fibre, which leaves you feeling full longer. They're also digested slowly, so they don't cause a spike in blood glucose levels.

2. Add cherries and cinnamon: researchers at Michigan State University have found that anthocyanins (the compounds that give cherries their bright colour) help stabilise blood sugar, even in people on a high-fat diet. The explanation is that the anthocyanins make pancreas cells produce up to 50 percent more insulin. Cinnamon is another potent insulin booster. In a 2003 study, diabetic patients taking cinnamon (equivalent to one teaspoon a day, in divided doses) dropped their glucose levels by as much as 29 percent; unhealthy fats like LDL cholesterol and triglycerides also showed marked reductions.

3. Take magnesium and chromium: compared to non-diabetics, patients with type 2 diabetes have lower levels of this mineral, which your body needs to form enzymes that help burn glucose as energy. Good sources of magnesium include whole grains, nuts and green leafy vegetables; if you can't guarantee the quality of your diet, take a supplement. Many diabetics also have low levels of chromium, a mineral that helps cells utilise glucose. Most experts recommend a dose of 1000mcg daily.

It is a real concern among many people today that Diabetes is out of control.

I have a friend that has had his leg taken off just below the knee.

What is more of a concern is the number of SDA's that now have Diabetes.

It never seemed like that once but now it is.

Diet plays such a big part in getting the disease.

In this report it is suggesting that red cherries could be of help. Now I know that some have had good success with the Goji Berry or Juice.

Now I know why, it is the anthocyanins that makes them red. It maybe found in all red fruit.

I wonder if tomatoes will do the same thing.

A Solemn Reminder: Soaring Diabetes Rates Wake Prosthetics Industy

Business is booming largely because of amputations related to the disease. And this has led to advances.

William Yule is a prosthetist who fits limbs on recent amputees, and business is booming for one reason: diabetes. His place of business: Hanger Prostetics & Orthotics Inc. is brimming with dozens of patients every day. As he helps a patient adjust her right leg, he notes "It can be hard because you can't help thinking a lot of these people don't need to be here."

As more Americans become obese and 1.5 million of them are diagnosed with diabetes each year, a growing number are confronting one of the most brutal consequences of the disease: suffering amputation of a limb or two. The number of amputees in the U.S. has grown to 1.9 million, up nearly three-quarters of a million people over the last 10 years, according to federal statistics. About 60% of these are diabetes-related.

To capitalize on the market boom, manufacturers are introducing an unprecedented number of artificial sockets and limbs, many aimed at older and overweight users.... Prices of artificial limbs cost $2,500 to $50,000 depending on how advanced they are. Some have sensors in the feet that clock how fast a user is moving, how much they weigh and whether the foot is on an incline so it can adjust accordingly. Another products such as the C-Leg and a bionic knee called the Rheo are so advanced that some amputees use them to run marathons. --adapted from the Los Angeles Times, July 4, 2007.

Comment: Public health experts are indeed ramping up efforts nationwide to reverse the trend. They are informing people that regularly eating more sugar and refined carbohydrates than the body can properly handle is a major cause of this malady. A diet high in meat with its rich payload of saturated fat is also involved. Here the cells are engorged in fat making it almost impossible for the hormone insulin to do it job of utilizing and clearing the bloodstream of sugar.

While sharply curtailing these culprits it is equally imperative that the patient increase his/her consumption of the protective foods which include an abundant supply of fruits and veggies, whole grains, legumes and nuts. Researchers are also finding that plant protein is advisable including soy foods, various brands of vege-meats, nuts and legumes, etc. Surprizingly green veggies--plants-- offer some protein. (Indeed, where do elephants, horses, cows, hippos, rhinos, etc. get their protein?)

And don't forget to engage in some form of regular exercise most every day, as well as other lifestyle factors that make for good health. You can prevent and beat this disease.

Drugs prescribed to 100,000 patients in Britain to treat diabetes double the risk of heart failure, a study has suggested. The finding is a blow to GlaxoSmithKline, whose drug Avandia is one of the drugs involved.

The new analysis, which pools data from 78,000 patients, finds that one in fifty patients treated with either Avandia or a similar drug, Actos, for two and a half years would be admitted to hospital with heart failure. source

Study: The Best Exercise for Diabetes

It's no secret that exercise is key to controlling type 2 diabetes--and many doctors already urge their diabetic patients to get active. But it's a vague directive: How much exercise is enough? How often? And what kind? The simple answer is any is better than none--in sum, that's what a new study published in the September 18, 2007 issue of the journal Annals of Internal Medicine found. But it also found that not all exercise is created equal and that the combination of aerobic exercise and weight training is significantly better for controlling blood sugar than either alone....

One of the blessings of country living is the opportunity to get outside and do things in a very refreshing environment of air and pleasant surroundings.

Where I live now I have to do more walking to get to what I have to do then I had before where I use to live. There is no such thing as flat here, everything is in you going up and down landscaping that causes more effort to be made in getting around.

We spent the afternoon yesterday picking up dead tumbleweed, of which there is much and stomping on it to make it flat and then lifting them into a utility trailer to be taken to the dump.

So in all this effort there were many different muscles being used in the body as well as lifting. Enjoying the sun, working with other people and kids make it a lot of fun and fulfilling getting a job done for the fall rains and winter snow.

Each day there is something that needs to be done in work and play that blesses one that lives in such a place. Not enough time as before to sit around in front of the computer.

Raw Reversal

Can a raw-food diet reverse diabetes? That's what a small group of Americans signed up to find out when they agreed to participate in a treatment program that included eating only raw and vegan food for 30 days. Their experiment is now the subject of an upcoming documentary, Raw for 30 Days, by filmmaker Mark Perlmutter.

Supervised by Gabriel Cousens, M.D., and Helen Ross, M.D., at Arizona's Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center, the diabetics ate mostly green veggies, sprouts, and some nuts; took multivitamins, minerals and enzymes; and exercised regularly. The results? Four of 5 participants--two of whom had type 1 diabetes--stabilized their glucose levels, lost an average of 25 pounds, and became more physically fit. (As in reality-TV style, one participant quit the program while another had difficulty following the rules.)

Raw for 30 Days should hit the TV circuit in the spring of 2008. However Perlmutter released the two-disc DVD featuring testimonial from medical experts and raw food demonstrations from chefs, in late 2007. See: rawfor30days.com

I know this works. Mother's life is coming to an end, but several years ago when it was critical that her kidney function improve and more needed to be done to keep her body from retaining so much fluid, I camped out at her house for two months. We were going to fight water with water and it worked!

We ate nothing but raw food and whole wheat toast. Fruit during the morning hours - prepared every imaginable way. Very watery fruits - melons, berries, etc.

At noon, we switched to vegetables - the same thing - very watery, dark green vegetables - and ate nothing after 4 PM. She lost 30 pounds in the first 30 days and maintained for the next 30 days. Her doctors were amazed. Even as ill as she was at that time (ready for hospice), her medications for diabetes were completely eliminated. She no longer has diabetes!

Getting her taste buds accustomed to raw foods was not easy. The first thirty days included some pretty  miserable conversations and stubborn wills ... but God saw us through it! We knew the raw, fresh food meant life for her - and it means life for us. I know I never felt better!

God's food, in the raw, heals. I know first hand!

  For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven. Psalm 119:89

Amen!  Here in Central Michigan we have a program, now in it's sixth session in Cadillac, called START NEW (an acronym for God's eight laws of health).  I have seen many people rid themselves of disease, get completely off medications they once 'needed' to live.  Weight loss is phenominal and healing of all these diseases is even more phenominal!  Praise God for His instructions to mankind on how to maintain the body.

3Jo 1:2  Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
Zep 1:11 Howl, ye inhabitants of Maktesh, for all the merchant people are cut down; all they that bear silver are cut off.

Zep 1:12 And it shall come to pass at that time, [that] I will search Jerusalem with candles, and punish the men that are settled on their lees: that say in

Caffeine and Diabetes

Duke University researchers see a troubling effect for people with Type 2 diabetes who are regular coffee drinkers. Using new technology--a tiny glucose monitor embedded under abdominal skin--to monitor blood glucose (sugar) levels ccontinuously, investigators find that caffeine disrupts glucose metabolism in a potentially damaging way.

"When people with Type 2 diabetes who are regular coffee drinkers drink coffee, it produces an elevation in their glucose throughout the day" by about 8%. Researchers suggest that caffeine may interfere with the process that transports glucose from the blood into muscles and other cells in the body where it's burned as fuel. In addition, caffeine triggers adrenaline, which also raises blood sugar levels. "People with diabetes might want to avoid coffee and other caffeinated beverages," they caution, to better balance their glucose levels.

Other researchers using blood sugar samples, found habitual coffee drinking can impair long-term glucose control in those with Type 2 diabetes. And a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled crossover trial shows that daily caffeine intake reduces insulin sensitivy--the effect lasting 12 hours after last consuming caffeinated products.

Caffeine may also be a culprit in osteoporosis, high blood pressure, increased cholesterol and triglyceride blood levels, fibrocystic breast disease, prostate enlargement, and hypoglycemia. --Taste for Life, March 2008.

Obesity seems to be a major risk factor for diabetes.  A month or 2 ago (early 2008), a 60-Minutes segment showed an interview with at least a dozen people who had the gastric by-pass operation, and had lost, some up to a hundred pounds. Amazingly they all (the diabetics) --if I remember correctly)--were able to eliminate their diabetes medication; indeed, considered themselves cured of type 2 diabetes.

I certainly do not advocate such drastic measures as the gastric by-pass. Indeed, I can't help but think that every other safe method of losing weight should be considered and given enough time to work, before any thought of the by-pass is made.

Broccoli Protects Women From Diabetes

An increased intake of green leafy vegetables may reduce the risk of women developing type-2 diabetes, suggests a new epidemiological study published in the June 2008 online edition of the journal Diabetes Care.

For every additional serving of green leafy veggies, especially broccoli, the risk of developing type-2 may be reduced by almost 10%, according to results. The U.S. has over 20 million diabetics, equal to 7% of the population. --Healthy Living, Vol. 12, No. 7.

Reduce Diabetes Risk in 7 Days

You can reverse the earliest symptoms of type 2 diabetes in just 1 week, according to a University of Michigan study.  Sedentary, prediabetic adults who walked an hour daily improved their sensitivity to insulin by 59% and their ability to produce insulin by 31% in only 7 days.  Both factors indicate improved ability to regulate blood sugar. 

Continued exercise over time can lower the risk of developing diabetes by 58%, especially if you drop a few pounds along the way.  --Prevention, July 2008.

Comment:  You can't get around it.  You've got to exercise!

Dietary Factors and Diabetes

In a study of roughly 70,000 women, those who ate the most red meat (about one serving a day) had a 22% higher risk of dabetes than those who ate the least (about one serving a week). --Arch. Intern. Med. 164:2235, 2004.
One possible culprit is the iron, or, more precisely, the heme iron found in animal foods. "Heme iron is much more readily absorbed, even if you already have enough on board," explains Harvard's Walter Willett, MD. "We're better at regulating the non-heme iron that we get from plants and supplements."

In another study or over 35,000 women in Iowa, those who consumed the most heme iron had a higher risk of diabetes than those who consumed the least. --Diabetologia 47: 185,2004.

Scientists speculate why heme iron might cause harm. "In extreme cases of iron ovrload, called hemochromatosis, we know that there's damage to the beta-cells in the pancreas that secrete insulin," explains Dr. Willett. "The iron seems to be directly toxic."

And why do some vegetarians contract diabetes? There is evidence that refined carbohydrates and a high glycemic load increase the risk of diabetes, while a diet high in whole grains and fiber and a low glycemic load are associated with a lower risk, according to JoAnn Manson, a professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and chief of preventive medicine at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston. Indeed, many times when one leaves off meat, they consume a diet heavy in refined and processed carbs, ie. cookies, cakes, pies, etc. Whole grains should be emphasized here. Indeed in a study of over 42,000 men and another study of 75,000 women, those who ate the most whole grains had a 40% lower risk of diabetes than those who ate the least. --Am. J. Clin. Nut. 76:535, 2002; Am. J. Public Health 90:1409, 2000. The fiber in whole grains makes a big difference.

In a meta-analysis that pooled the results of 8 studies, people who got more fiber from breads, cereals, and other grains had about a 30% lower risk of diabetes. "It's not just fiber," explains Dr. Willett. "It's also the nutrients, which get stripped away when grains are refined. Among those nutrients are magnesium and chromium. The same meta-analysis found a 20% lower risk of diabetes in those who ate the most magnesium-rich foods such as whole grains, nuts, leafy greens, and beans. --Nutrition Action Health Letter, Sept. 2008.

An overall good diet and other positive lifestyle factors are always important when dealing with diabetes and other modern-day maladies.

Broccoli Beats Diabetic Damage

Diabetics should go green! Eating broccoli can reverse the cardiovascular damage frequently caused by diabetes, according to a British study.

Dr. Paul Thornally tested the effects of a compound from broccoli on blood vessels damaged by the high glucose levels associated with diabetes. Remarkably, sulforaphane led to a whopping 73% reduction in damaging substances while increasing the production of protective antioxidants.

Dr. Thornally concluded: "Our study suggests that compounds like sulforaphane from broccoli help counter processes linked to the development of vascular disease from diabetes. --end of article.

New Diabetes Warning Sign

Add having a fast pulse to the list of things associated with an increased risk of type 2 diabetes. Japanese researchers found that people with a resting heart rate of at least 80 beats a minute were more likely to become obese and develop diabetes later in life.

To check yours, sit comfortably and place 2 fingers on your wrist at the base of your thumb (or lightly on your neck, just under the jawbone). Count the beats for 15 seconds, then multiply that number by 4 to get your resting heart rate.

"People who don't get regular exercise or are overweight tend to have a faster heart rate, cautions John B. Buse, MD, PhD, former president of medicine and science for the American Diabetes Association. Moving more, getting enough sleep, eating a healthy diet (more fruits, veggies, and beans; fewer processed foods) and taking time for relaxation can help you reduce your diabetes risk. --Women's Day, May 5, 2009.

Whole Grains Diminish Diabetes Risk

Men who consume whole grains as part of their daily bill of fare may decrease their risk of Type 2 diabetes.  The study, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (Vol. 76, 2002), assessed over 1,190 men with Type 2.  Those who consumed the highest amount of whole grains (3.2 servings a day) reduced their risk of the disease by 30-40% compared to men who ate less than 1 serving a day.

Comment: We are talking about 100% whole grains which are available in cereals, bread, rolls, bagels, pasta, etc.

An interesting result happened last year when a clinical trial for type 2 diabetics was halted because of increased deaths. Intensively targeting blood sugar to near-normal levels in adults with type 2 diabetes at especially high risk for heart attack and stroke does not significantly reduce the risk of major cardiovascular events, such as fatal or nonfatal heart attacks or stroke, but increases risk of death, compared to standard treatment according to researchers from the ACCORD (Action to Control Cardiovascular Risk in Diabetes) clinical trial being done by NIH's National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute.  source

This clinical trial utilized traditional treatment involving medication, insulin, and diet. Of course the diet was the traditional ADA diet recommendations.   It is very sad that so many suffer and die when it is not necessary. God's original diet reverses type 2 diabetes in most patients when combined with exercise and the other God given remedies.

Some in the medical community recognize how to treat diabetic patients. They are catching up with what we have known for many years. I ran across an article extolling the virtues of Dr Sanjay Gupta. Well...he is headed in the right direction, but has given people the wrong information when telling them to eat a low carb diet. And, passing on information that reversing diabetes is an "exception".

Read the article and see where he is right and where he is wrong in regards to treating type 2 diabetes. source

This thread is valuable to those who have diabetes. Let me summarize what has been posted.

I worked in a medical practice seeing patients who were open to making lifestyle changes in order to either keep from taking drugs or to get off of them. We had great success with type two diabetics. If they followed our program, the "disease" would go away. We had patients taking large amounts of insulin and on meds. Those adhering to the program would see their blood sugar levels come down rather quickly. One patient injured her knee and could not walk. Her blood sugar had been coming down, but it at once began climbing, just from the lack of exercise..

What is the great danger in the diet? Animal products. A low carb diet is not good. What we need is a natural food, plant based diet, as given to man at creation. Animal products and refined food is killing people, especially high fat. Diabetics need to go to a very low fat diet. Get the animal products and refined oil out of your diet. Begin a walking program and make sure your doctor is lowering your insulin as you progress. Your sugar levels will come down quickly. You will be in danger of insulin shock which can lead to diabetic coma, brain damage, and even death.

You can and need to eat fresh fruit. Get the fat and refined foods out of your diet. It is causing the problem creating insulin resistance. Stay in close contact with your doctor so he can advise you on insulin levels and a reduction in your medication. Check your blood sugar levels more frequently to see the changes taking place.

Type one diabetics will have to continue taking insulin, but if faithful to follow this program, will also need to reduce the amount of insulin being injected. Let your doctor know what you are doing so he can revise meds and insulin levels.
