A Roller Coaster Ride Might Break Small Kidney Stones

According to researchers, yearly more than 300,000
people in the United States seek
emergency care for kidney
stones, costing an estimated $2.1
billion. The report also said that about 11 percent
of men and 6 percent of women
will have a kidney stone in their

Preliminary research now suggests that anyone
who's suffered a kidney stone might get relief and get the obstruction
gone in a fun way: a roller
coaster ride.

According to Dr.
David Wartinger, a professor of
urology at the Michigan State
University College of Osteopathic
Medicine, in East Lansing, some kidney stones suffers have been saying
that these
amusement park rides can help
pass a small stone.

Accordingly, his team's
conducted research on the Big Thunder
Mountain Railroad and Space
Mountain roller coasters at
Orlando's Walt Disney World to support that view that riding a roller
coaster could eliminate kidney stones.

In this study, Wartinger's group
used 3D printing to create a clear
silicone model of a kidney that
contained urine, plus three
different-sized kidney stones.
They placed the kidney model in
a backpack and took it on 60
roller coaster rides.

In a news
release from The Journal of the
American Osteopathic
Association, Wartinger said " a ride on a moderate-intensity
roller coaster could benefit some
patients with small kidney

According to the study which results was
published in the journal on Sept.
26, the passage rate of stones was
nearly 17 percent when the
backpack/model was in the front
of a roller coaster, and skyrocketed to
nearly 64 percent when it was in
the back of a roller coaster. The researchers noted that
the position of the stone within
the model didn't seem to matter. The study suggests that the fun
ride might be therapeutic for
small kidney stones -- and that's
no small matter.
"Passing a kidney stone before it
reaches an obstructive size can
prevent surgeries and
emergency room visits,"
Wartinger said. "Roller coaster
riding after treatments like
lithotripsy [using sound waves to
break up stones] and before
planned pregnancies may
prevent stone enlargement."

3 foods that can treat kidney disease and help boosting renal function

More than 100,000 individuals in the United States are
diagnoized to have kidney illness every year. This a genuine, life-debilitating
condition in which the kidneys can no more channel waste items from
the blood. (1) The National Kidney Foundation appraises that one in
three American grown-ups is right now at danger of creating kidney
illness and those chances increment to one in two through the span of
a lifetime. (2)

The main sources of poor kidney wellbeing are diabetes and
hypertension, which thusly are brought about by a less than stellar
eating routine and way of life. Thusly, the main genuine long haul
answer for kidney ailment is to drink all the more spotless water, get
more practice and, in particular, to reject handled and unfortunate
sustenances for characteristic entire nourishments. The sustenances
recorded beneath are turned out to be especially successful at
boosting renal wellbeing.


Asparagus was viewed as the ideal mending nourishment for our urinary
framework for quite a long time in its local Europe and Asia, and we
now comprehend why. This green spring vegetable is pressed with
characteristic mixes, including glycosides and saponins, that give it
huge diuretic, hostile to rheumatic and blood refining qualities.
Thusly, the general utilization of asparagus is known not pee
creation, relieve the urinary framework, support cell activity in the
kidneys and even disintegrate the acids and salts that involve kidney
stones. (3)

In addition, a study distributed in the Journal of Agricultural and
Food Chemistry in June 2013 observed that a compound present in
asparagus, 2″- hydroxynicotianamine, could restrain
angiotensin-changing over chemical action in the kidneys, subsequently
"averting hypertension and saving renal capacity." (4)


Garlic has long been viewed as one of nature's most noteworthy malady
contenders because of its great convergences of the sulfur compound
allicin. A demonstrated antibacterial, antimicrobial, antiviral,
antifungal and cancer prevention agent, allicin is surely understood
for treating two of the primary conditions that cause kidney malady,
in particular diabetes and hypertension. On the other hand, a few
studies have demonstrated that this impactful and fragrant herb could
be far superior for our kidneys than beforehand suspected.

One study distributed in Pharmacological Reports in 2008 found that
garlic could altogether decrease kidney harm connected with mercury
chloride introduction in research center creatures (mercury chloride
is a potential cancer-causing agent utilized as a part of
disinfectants, batteries, bug sprays and numerous different items to
which people are frequently uncovered). (5) Another study, distributed
in Food and Chemical Toxicology in 2001, found that garlic in low
measurements could upgrade the cancer prevention agent status of the
kidneys, hence shielding them from the cell-harming impacts of free
radicals. (6)


There are three reasons why watermelons are useful for treating kidney
illness. Firstly, they are low in potassium and phosphorus, which are
two minerals that broken kidneys can have issues adjusting.
Furthermore, they are contained roughly 92 percent antacid water,
which helps flush the urinary arrangement of aggregated poisons
(watermelon fasts can even break up kidney stones). Ultimately, they
help the liver to process alkali and convey it to urea, hence
facilitating the strain on the kidneys while freeing the collection of
abundance liquids. (7)

Dissimilar to asparagus and garlic, watermelon is high in regular
sugars. Hence, individuals with diabetes-sourced kidney malady ought
to be mindful so as not to devour a lot of it all the time

Air pollution has higher heart risks for diabetes women

According to a new US study, women with diabetes
are even more vulnerable than
most people to particle pollution like soot and others like car
exhaust and plant fumes that pose serious health hazard and linked
to the risk of heart disease and

According to the lead
author Jaime E. Hart of Brigham
and Women's Hospital and
Harvard Medical School in Boston,
"There is a convincing literature
that long-term air pollution is
associated with a higher risk of
cardiovascular disease. A number of studies of
short-term air pollution
exposures have suggested that
individuals with diabetes are at
higher risk of cardiovascular

114,537 women were studied a the decades-long
Nurses' Health Study monitoring their data on pollution
exposure and health outcomes.
The result shows that there
were 6,767 cases of
cardiovascular disease, 3,878
cases of coronary heart disease
and 3,295 strokes in the group between 1989 and 2006 .

Though, all women are vulnerable to cardiovascular disease with
increasing exposure to the kind
of tiny pollution particles that
come from engine combustion,
power plants and road dust, the risk increases were
greater for diabetes women since for every additional 10
micrograms of pollution particle
exposure, there was a 19
percent increase in the chance of developing
cardiovascular disease and 23
percent increase in the risk of
having a stroke women with diabetes.

Particles which typically come from
vehicle exhaust and power plants known as PM
2.5 and which are the finest particles, are the most dangerous as they
can enter the bloodstream
after being inhaled.

It was revealed in the
Journal of the American Heart
Association that exposure to an
additional 10 micrograms of PM
2.5 pollution could led to a 44 percent
increase in heart disease and 66
percent increase in stroke risk.

My advice for all men and women, diabetics or non-diabetics is the
same as that of Hart, "I think the recommendations for
women with diabetes would be
similar to advice for all women:
don't smoke cigarettes, eat a
healthy diet, get regular exercise

End of daily injections for type 1 diabetes as scientists restore insulin production

TELEGRAPH (UK) – The end of
daily injections for diabetes
sufferers could be in sight after
scientists showed it is possible to
restore insulin production for up
to a year by boosting the
immune system.

Hundreds of thousands of people
in Britain suffer from Type 1
diabetes and need to inject
themselves daily to keep blood
sugar levels under control.
The disease attacks insulin-
secreting cells in the pancreas.
Healthy people have billions of
'peacekeeping' cells called 'T-regs'
which protect insulin-making
cells from the immune system
but people suffering Type 1
diabetes do not have enough.
Now researchers at the
University of California and Yale
have shown that the 'T-regs' can
be removed from the body,
increased by 1,500x in the
laboratory and infused back into
the bloodstream to restore
normal function.
An initial trial of 14 people has
shown that the therapy is safe,
and can last up to a year.

This morning i bought
groundnuts and someone that is
diabetics asked me to give her,
so i did. I now decided to ask
from google whether eating
groundnut is good for diabetic.
Though, the answer i found do
not mention groundnut
specifically but it says the overall
effects of nuts as a whole on
diabetes and other sickness.

The article says diabetics can eat
any kind of
nuts as long as they
eat it in moderation and balance
it with healthy choices because
have general health benefits
which diabetics also can benefit

1. One of the reasons why
groundnut and nuts are good for
diabetes is that it helps to lower
High cholesterol levels is
detrimental to our health as it
contribute to the risk of heart
disease. However, the
unsaturated fats in nuts help
lower low-density
lipoprotein, the "bad" cholesterol
while raising the levels
of high-density lipoprotein, the
"good" form of cholesterol.
Type of Drug For Diabetes Can
Cause Heart Failure
Another reason nut helps to
lower cholesterol is that it is
highly rich in
fiber and plant
sterols. It was even
that eating 30
grams of walnuts daily over a
long period like 6-
month period could help people
with type 2 diabetes because it
could reduce LDL by 10
percent and raised HDL levels by
a good percentage.

2. The number two reason why
nuts might be good for diabetes
is that nuts help to lower
index of foods.
The glycemic index is a
measurement of how fast your
body absorbs certain
carbohydrates. Foods with
higher glycemic
index is harmful for
diabetics because they will be
absorbed fastly by the body and
faster absorption
raises blood glucose levels more
People with diabetes who eat
nuts along
with foods with a high-glycemic
index such as pasta could slow
their absorption
of carbohydrate and thus
stabilizing their blood glucose
levels because adding almonds to
white bread
lowered the glycemic index in a
research conducted on non-

3. The third reason nuts might be
good for diabetes is that nuts
help to reduce the risk of heart
Since diabetics have double or
the risk developing heart disease
than people without diabetes,
eating in MODERATION foods
such as almonds and
walnuts which are high in
vitamin E can slow plaque
development that leads to
atherosclerosis. Also walnuts are
rich in Omega-3 fatty
acids, which help to
reduce the risk of developing
irregular heartbeats and heart
attack. Other nuts such as
macadamia nuts, hazelnuts and
pecans also have
heart-protective benefits.
Another reason nuts are good
for the heart is that they contain
arginine, an amino acid found in
nuts, which make artery walls
flexible, thus preventing
blood clotting and ensure
smooth flow of blood to the

Nuts which groundnut is among
is good for everybody including
diabetics. However, it should be
taken in moderation or daily
right proportion especially for
diabetes patients.nuts

How Important Is Fiber To Diabetes

Anyone with diabetes will know how important is fiber to diabetes
diet. This is because doctors usually advised diabetics to be
consuming foods high in fiber but low in sugar, fats, starch,
carbohydrates and calories.

Food rich in fiber helps to prevent many illnesses including diabetes
and many cardiovascular diseases. Fiber will also help in the
management, control, treatment and cure of those diseases.

People with diabetes should be selective in their diet. Selecting
healthy and high fiber foods is the beginning of wisdom and treatment
for diabetes. Many people were able to control and balance their blood
sugar level through eating healthy food such as fruits and vegetables
which are usually high in fiber an other classes of foods with low or
no sugar, fats, starch, calories, carbohydrates.

Food rich in vitamins and minerals also help in the treatment and
management of diabetes. Therefore, should be given serious
consideration by diabetics.

If you have diabetes, you can talk to your doctor on the kind of
fruits and foods that are rich in fiber and at the same time good for
your condition. However, in my next article am going to list some
common fruits and foods that are rich in fiber and which can be
consume in reasonable quantity by diabetes patients.

The point is that diabetes patients should highly educate themselves
on the important of fiber to their health and how it can affect their
blood sugar level. They should also educate themselves on various kind
of foods and fruits that are rich in fiber. This is because fiber is
so essential to diabetes patients and should form part of their daily
diet routine.

This kind of your knowledge will give any patient an edge over others
that are ignorant about diets and foods that could help them better
manage their condition and effectively control their blood sugar
level. Food rich in fiber and vitamins are as important to diabetes as

What Makes Chocolate Healthy?

Whether you're an avid baker, or
just love a sweet treat, it's hard
to resist the appeal of chocolate.
But increasing evidence shows
that resistance may not be
necessary. Studies demonstrate
myriad benefits of chocolate,
from creating a feel-good buzz to
boosting cardiovascular health.
Read on to learn more, then try
some healthy recipes.
The Latest Research
A recent study in the journal
Heart shows that habitual
chocolate consumption is linked
to a lower risk of cardiovascular
disease and stroke. Keeping in
mind that the study only
demonstrated correlation (not
causation), it's nonetheless
exciting to see that among
participants who consumed a
relatively high volume of
chocolate every day, 12%
developed or died of
cardiovascular disease during
the 12-year study. Compare that
to participants who didn't eat
chocolate at all, among whom
17.4% developed or died of the
disease. How much were the
chocolate-eaters consuming?
About 16 to 100 grams per day,
or roughly one half to two typical
chocolate bars.
What Makes Chocolate Healthy?
The potential health benefits of
chocolate may come from
flavonoids, a type of polyphenol,
which cacao, the plant chocolate
is derived from, has in spades.
Flavonoids (and polyphenols) are
often touted as an antioxidant,
anti-carcinogen, and anti-
However, not all chocolate is
created equal. A general rule of
thumb asserts that the higher
the cacao percentage of a
chocolate bar, the more health
benefits it contains. A lower
percentage bar will contain less
good-for-you cacao and more
sugar and dairy. That's why many
recommend dark chocolate over
milk. Research shows that dark
chocolate may improve mobility
among the elderly, raise good
cholesterol, lower bad
cholesterol, and benefit cognitive

Diabetes patients will surely know the importance of keeping track of their
blood sugar levels. But how do they handle a spike called
"postprandial" blood glucose, that comes
after they eat?

Taking some simple
steps, can help diabetes patients to their spike under
control and avoid health complications.

Why Is It Important To Keep an Eye on
Blood Sugar After Meal?

It is important because when blood sugar is high, diabetics can get
symptoms like a
foggy-headed feeling that makes
it difficult to concentrate, focus or meditate very normally.
Their energy may also take a swing,
and they may feel nervous or
could even pass out if their blood sugar levels go too low. And, if
their blood sugar stays up,
they could be at risk for heart
disease, stroke, kidney disease etc.

The American Diabetes
Association (ADA) recommends that diabetics check their blood sugar
levels right before mealtime with
a blood sample from a finger
stick. Then they should measure it again 1 to 2
hours after that first bite of food. They should do it for like 7
days. Then pen down the time and the
blood sugar number. Pen down what they
ate, portion sizes and
the amount of carbs.
Think about what they think might affect your blood sugar levels and
write it down.


According to the ADA, a general goal is a blood
sugar level under 180 mg/dL, 1
to 2 hours after a meal. However, it better to speak with your
physician first about the sugar level that should be your target after


One of the best ways to manage blood sugar spike after meal is to get
medicine that works for
you, like the right insulin or
medication program. To correct after-meal spikes, medicine
that work quickly and within a
short time are recommended over ones that work slowly over
big difference.

Another way to manage blood sugar level spike after food is to Keep
blood sugar in check
before meals. This will prevent it from being so dramatic if
it goes up after you eat.

7 Things You To Know About ‘Tuta Absoluta’, The Pest That’s Making Tomatoes Scarce In Nigeria

Nigerians have been severely
affected by the scarcity of
tomatoes, which is a key
ingredient in most of the
delicacies prepared in this part of
the continent. The price of the
fruit has increased by 400
percent; Nigerians now pay
around 200 Naira for the same
quantity of tomatoes which was
sold at 50 Naira few months ago.
But while there have been
different rumours concerning the
tomato scarcity, the real reason
for the scarcity is a devastating
pest attack which has affected
this year's harvest. The pest
known as Tuta Absoluta has
reportedly affected tomato farms
in Jigawa, Kaduna, Kano, Katsina
and Plateau states.
Initially when Dangote Farms
Tomato Processing Factory
announced that it has halted
operations in its $20 million
tomato paste facility due to a
scarcity of tomatoes, barely two
months after beginning
operations, it came as a surprise
to many that believed Dangote
was the reason for the tomatoes
shortage plaguing Nigeria.
Nigeria is the 14th largest
producer of tomatoes in the
world. It is also the largest
producer of tomatoes in sub-
Saharan Africa and the eighth
largest importer of tomato paste
in the world after Iraq and Japan.
Here are seven things you need
to know about the pest called
'Tuta absoluta'
1.Tuta absoluta is also known by
the common name tomato
leafminer or the South American
tomato moth
2.It was first discovered in South
America and has been spreading
rapidly across the world from
South America
3.It has the ability to destroy a
whole tomato farm within 48

4.It is also very difficult to control
as it has a high mutation capacity
with the ability to develop a
resistance to insecticides
5. Around this time in 2015,
farmers in some parts of Nigeria
recorded losses as a result of this
same pest attack but the
consequences of this attack
weren't reflected in the price of
the commodity because the
demand for the crop wasn't as
high as it is now.
6.It took Sudan about three years
to recover from a similar attack
in 2010.
7.This plague could also dampen
the export of fruits and

Insulin is a hormone that acts
like a key by unlocking your cells to
let in glucose (a kind of sugar)
from your blood to make energy.
Insulin resistance is a condition where your cells do not allow
insulin to unlock and let in glucose from blood to cells to bring out
energy. Since, glucose cannot enter your cells, then
glucose builds up in your blood,
even when you make more
insulin. The reason why cells stop responding to insulin is still
baffling scientists.

You could have insulin resistance for a
long time without any symptoms.
patches of skin on their necks,
elbows, knees, hands, and
armpits are some symptoms of severe insulin

You are at risk of having
insulin resistant if you're
overweight, don't get enough
exercise, have high blood
pressure, or you smoke.

system can also high the chance of getting insulin
resistance, including low HDL
"good" cholesterol, high levels of
a kind of fat called triglycerides in
your blood, heart disease, a
previous stroke, and blood vessel
disease in your neck or legs.

Another factor that can put you at risk of insulin resistance is your
family history as people with an African American,
Hispanic/Latino, Native American,
Asian American, or a Pacific
Islander heritage are more likely
to become resistant to insulin.

Diabetes is another factor that could cause insulin resistance. If
your parent, brother, or sister
has type 2 diabetes, your risk is
higher. If your mother had
diabetes while she was pregnant
with you (gestational diabetes),
your risk also goes up.

Your doctor will
probably test you for prediabetes because the test for insulin resistance is
complicated and uncomfortable. A lab test can check the "average" blood
sugar level for the past few
months. You're
insulin resistant if your glucose level is higher
than normal.

Insulin resistance can lead to diabetes.

This because it will difficult for your pancreas to
keep producing extra insulin
to try to get glucose into your
body's cells. This could burn out the cells
that make insulin,
leading to prediabetes and type
2 diabetes. The only way to stop this is to detect insulin
resistance early and make
changes to your lifestyle.
