diabetes people to know the
various
symptoms of the aftereffects of
high blood sugar. Knowing this
will
help patients to quickly respond
to the complications of high
blood
sugar.
One of the consequences of
consistent, persistent and
uncontrolled
high blood sugar or diabetes is
nerve damage (called peripheral
NEUROPATHY). It is typically a sign
of chronically elevated blood
sugars.
WAYS TO CONTROL NEUROPATHY
Adhering strictly to diabetes
medications and diets are some
of the
ways to prevent and control
neuropathy.
Exercise is another effective way
to prevent or control neuropathy
in
relation to diabetes or high
blood sugar. Exercise such as
walking for
like 30 minutes or engaging in
other household activities that
will
make you active and sweat or
make your heart beat faster
everyday will
help you to control your high
blood sugar and nerve damage.
Make sure you are taking care of
your foot regularly if you are

Symptoms of High Blood Pressure and Sugar : Swelling of Hands and Feets

Ability to read signs about the
level of your blood sugar is vital
to
overall health and vitality. High
blood pressure and diabetes are
twins. Most diabetes patients are
also suffering from high blood
pressure while consistent and
uncontrolled high blood pressure
could
lead to diabetes.
Persistent high blood pressure
together with diabetes, can
damage the
kidneys' ability to filter wastes
and fluid in the long run.
Therefore, your
hands and feet may swell as
water
builds up in your body. This is a
warning sign that you your
condition is affecting your
kidney.
Therefore, it is advisable to be
using your high blood pressure

Symptoms of Low Blood Sugar : Feeling Dizzy or Shaky

Every diabetes patients should
learn how to know whether their
blood
sugar is low or high. In my two
previous articles, i wrote about

problem or cause of diabetes but
sometimes due to many factors
blood sugar could drop low in
diabetes
patients. It must be noted that
low blood sugar is a serious and

Symptoms That Your Blood Sugar Is High : Fatigue or Tiredness

If you are diabetic, it is very
important to be able to read your
blood sugar level without meter
but through how you feel inside
of
you.
Being able to read how you feel
from time to time concerning
diabetes
will help you to balance your
blood sugar if it rises.
One of the symptoms that shows
your blood sugar is high is
feeling of
fatigue or tiredness.
Fatigue is one of the major
signals that
your blood sugar is high. The
reason why you are feeling
fatigue or
tired when your sugar is high is
that your sugar which is suppose
to
be diverted to your body's cells is
instead staying in your
bloodstream. Therefore, your
muscles do not have
enough fuel to use for energy.
The fatigue may range from
feeling only a little tired to
needing a
nap. When your blood sugar is
high you will be feeling tired all
the
time or after just a little work or
after eating a big
meal.
BOTTOM LINE
Fatigue for diabetes people is a

Health Updates : Climbing Stairs Improves Health

Climbing stairs improve health
long time ago, a group of
researchers asked 69 sedentary
employees to use only the stairs
at their place of working instead
of using the elevators. The
researcher's found out after just
two weeks that the workers'
aerobic capacity had increased
by 8.6 percent and this allowed
for 15 percent decrement in
mortality risk from any cause.
The workers blood pressure,
weight, size and cholesterol also
improved. It was then concluded:
That taking the stairs regularly is
a simple and effective way to
improve health.

the
rise. First, people with type 2
diabetes need to be reminded
that
their blood sugar
levels can be keep under control
with diet, exercise, and drug.
However, you need to be
checking your blood sugar level
every day with a
meter, to get best results.
Therefore, it is advisable for
anyone with
diabetes to be checking their
blood sugar regularly as this will
let
them know the kind of action to
take or maybe to keep doing
what they
are doing right.
However, if you do not have time
or your needle has finished, one
of
the ways to know that your
sugar is high is that you will be
unduely
and excessively thirsty.
Thirst and frequent urination are
two significant symptoms of
diabetes due to too much sugar
in your blood.

than normal if your blood sugar
is high
because your kidneys work
harder to
filter out the sugar, pulling more
fluids from your tissues in the

What Is The Best Sleeping Position For Infants

Worldwide, many infants are
dying from sudden death (SIDS).
Medical personnel are working
round the clock to correct and
control this problem. According
to the Journal of the American
Medical Association (JAMA), it
seems that the risk of SIDS highly
reduces when infants sleep with
their back than with their belly.
Though, the relationship
between sleeping with the face
up in infants and SIDS cannot be
well established but some
researchers noted that sleeping
in this manner can prevent
infants from inhaling back the
carbondioxide that has already
been exhaled which can lead to
concentration of carbondioxide
in the blood stream. Making
infants to sleep with their belly
can also lead to excessive heat
generation.
Not the best sleeping position for
infants
Many countries such as England,
New Zealand, Australia, Denmark
and Norway usually urge parents
to lay their child on the bed with
their face up and this has
resulted in great reduction of
SIDS death to 5…

HIGH FIBER FOODS FOR DIABETES

In my previous article, I wrote
about the importance of fiber to
diabetes diet. If you have not
read the article it is advisable you
do so. Reading it will give the you
the knowledge about the
importance of fiber for the
controlling and balancing of
blood sugar.
Food rich in fiber is usually
recommended for diabetes by
doctors. Diabetes people should
consider eating fruits and foods
that are high in fiber but low in
sugar calories, fruits, starch and
carbohydrates. Foods high in
vitamins and minerals are also a
must for diabetes diet.
The problem that most diabetes
patients have is that they
concentrated much on using
drugs that flush or balance their
blood sugar than on eating
foods that could equally do the
same or outperformed the drugs

Excessive Eating Increases The Risk Of Eating Bacteria In Food

Excess food intake at a go can
increase the risk of fallen sick
through getting infected with
bacteria.
The acid in our intestine usually
kill the bacteria in the food we
eat. But excess food will be more
powerful than the acid in our
intestine thus reducing the
power of the intestine to kill
bacteria.

How To Reverse Diabetes Type 2 With Diets

Reversing type 2 diabetes
with proper diet
It must be admitted that living
with diabetes is not easy
because you have to follow a
daily routine of using your
medications as at when due. It is
even a terrible case for those on
insulin, some diabetics take
insulin daily, as they need to be
injecting themselves with
needles.
Contrary to popular believe that
diabetes cannot be reverse, a
clinical trial has proven that type
2 diabetes, can be reversed and
with your diet.
Weight loss has been said to be
able to improve diabetes
condition. Accordingly, IU Health
Arnett Doctor Sarah
Hallberg helped to create a diet
for a weight loss study program
examining how a low carb
diet can serve as a treatment for
diabetes.
The diet was designed in such a
way that it is low in carbs,
moderate on protein intake and
suggests high levels of fat.
I know that you will be surprised
to read that the diet 'suggests
high levels of fat.'
However, the fat are not harmful

LINK BETWEEN DIABETES, HEART DISEASE AND BLOOD VESSELS DAMAGE

Coronary or health disease and
vein disease are risky diseases
for some individuals who don't
have their diabetes under proper
control.
It is very important for diabetes
people to keep their blood sugar
level under proper control
because they were twice as liable
to have heart issues and strokes
as
individuals who don't have the
condition.
Another reason it is advisable for
diabetics to properly balance
their glucose level is that it could
lead to blood vessel or nerve
damage which might likewise
bring about foot issues that, in
rare cases, can
lead to amputation.

Stress Management Could Reduce Deaths And Disability From Heart Attack

Stress Management Could Reduce
Deaths And Disability From Heart
Attack
A team at Duke University School
of Medicine studied a single DNA
letter change in the human
genome, which has been linked
to being more vulnerable to the
effects of stress.
From the research, they found
that heart patients with genetic
change had a 38 percent
increased risk of heart disease
after seven years of follow up
compared with those with no
genetic change.
The study adds to evidence that
stress may directly increase heart
disease risk. This also means that
stress management techniques
and drug therapies could reduce
deaths and disability from heart
attacks.
"This is one step towards the day
when we will be able to identify
people on the basis of this
genotype who are at higher risk
of developing heart disease in
the first place.
That's a step in the direction of

7 Risk Factors Shared By Diabetes And Certain Cancer

Medical scientists have
discovered that there is a link
between diabetes and some
form of cancer. They found out
that certain risk factors that
cause diabetes can also lead to
cancer. Scientists are trying their
best to make research and
discoveries in order to enlighten
people about their health. Many
people are ignorant about their
health. They are well educated in
other aspect of their lives, they
were educated and well
grounded in finance,
relationship, news,
entertainment, sports, market
and other aspect of life but when
it comes to health education,
their score is zero. Though,
having education on health does
not mean that one will not sick
but having the knowledge is
always better because
knowledge is better than
ignorance anytime any day.
The research shows that certain
factors that cause diabetes also
cause certain types of cancers
such as liver, pancreas, uterus,
colon, breast and bladder cancer.

3 REASONS WHY NUTS MIGHT BE GOOD FOR DIABETES

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
nuts
have general health benefits
which diabetics also can benefit
from.
3 REASONS WHY NUTS MIGHT BE
HEALTHY FOR DIABETES
1. One of the reasons why
groundnut and nuts are good for
diabetes is that it helps to lower

Diabetes Neuropathy: Symptoms, Causes and Treatment of Nerve Damage

One of the consequences or
complications of uncontrolled
diabetes or high blood glucose
or sugar level is a condition
known as diabetic neuropathy or
nerve damage.
Diabetic neuropathy is a
condition that must be treated
promptly to prevent total damage
of
the nerves. Total damage of the
nerves will definitely have a
negative effects on other vital
organs of the body. Since blood
and other important nutrients
are transported through the
nerves, getting it damage will not
be funny.
9 CAUSES OF DIABETIC
NEUROPATHY OR NERVE DAMAGE
In individuals with diabetes, the
body's nerves can be harmed or
damaged by diminished blood

Top 10 Causes of Type 2 Diabetes

So many factors or a single one
can cause someone to develop
diabetes. This article will analyse
some major risk factors or
causes of type 2 diabetes.
10 CAUSES OF DIABETES
1. Eating an excessive amount of
food especially fat can cause
diabetes.
2. Engaging in little or no physical
activities or exercise is one of the
major causes of diabetes.
3. Type 2 diabetes happens
when the pancreas doesn't make
enough insulin, or the cells of the
body gotten to be impervious to
insulin.
Insulin is a hormone made in the
pancreas that permits glucose
(sugar) to leave the circulatory
system, enter the cells to be
utilized as energy.
4. Being corpulent or overweight
puts you at noteworthy danger
for having type 2 diabetes. It was
revealed by one research that
90% individuals with type 2
diabetes are overweight or fat.
Therefore, it is advisable for
people that are overweight to
reduce their weight. If not, they
are writing invitation letter to

Causes of Osteroarthritis

Genetics
Osteroarthritis can be caused by
our genes as the whole genes
play a significant role in
predisposing us to
osteroarthritis. Though, only
three genes are linked to
osteroarthritis for now by
scientist, it is important to know
that each individual gene plays a
vital role in osteroarthritis
development and susceptibility.
Discovering more osteroarthritis
causing genes can help
researchers to indentify new
treatments and can be used to
predict osteroarthritis
susceptibility.
Post traumatic osteroarthritis
This can also be referred to as
post tragedy osteroarthritis. This
usually occur after many years
victim has gone through a
trauma or tragedy such as
accident or severe injury
sustained during sport or
recreational activities such as

Loneliness linked to cancer and others

Loneliness linked to cancer and others

Don't let loneliness to be your friend because it has been linked to
everything from cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer's disease to Depression.

Loneliness is very unhealthy for us because cancers tear through the
body of lonely people easily and rapidly, and viruses attack them
easily and more
frequently.

Loneliness also affect our immune system negatively. The pain of loneliness
activates the immune pattern of
a primordial response commonly
known as fight or flight.
Lonely people's white blood cells seem
to be more active in a way that

Moderate regular alcoholic drinkers live longer

Moderate regular alcoholic drinkers live longer

Objectively, I think we all believe or let me say some of us believed
that total abstinence from alcohol can keep us away from various
health diseases thus make us live longer. But recent research prove us
wrong as it shows that total abstinence from alcohol is not good for
our body as heavy drinkers are even found to live longer than those
who do not consume at all.

A recent research suggest that people who consume alcohol regularly
but moderately tend to live longer than chronic alcoholic drinkers
while heavy drinkers also outlive those that totally abstain from
alcohol.

The research was lead by Charles Holahan who is a university of Texas
Psychologist.

The age of the controlled group were between 55 and 65 and included
1824 participants.

Structure, Functions And Diseases of The Human Eye

The human organ of sight is the eye which is spherical in shape and
structured with visual receptor such as the rods for bright light and
the cones for bright light. The eye is so important to human because
without the eyes we cannot see and when we cannot see we cannot enjoy
the essence of life.

The following structures make up the human eyes

The sclerotic layer
This is a thick and fibrous tissue forming the white eye. Therefore
the sclera is the ' white eye ' and it gives shape and fitness to the
eye as well as protecting and supporting the inner parts of the eye.

Cornea
It is that part of the sclerotic layer which burges out in front of
the eye. The cornea is transparent thus admits light into the eyes.
This it does by bending the light rays in order to bring them to a
focus on the retina.

Optic nerve
This is located at the back of the sclera. It helps in transmitting
sensory impulses to and from the brain.

It allows the passage of light into …

FRUITS & HERBS : WALNUT IS ANTI-CANCER AGENT

FRUITS & HERBS : WALNUT IS ANTI-CANCER AGENT

Walnut is blessed with wide variety antioxidant and anti-inflammatory nutrients. Therefore, it is not surprising to see research on this tree nut showing measurable anti-cancer benefits. The antioxidant properties of walnuts help to lower risk of chronic oxidative stress, and the anti-inflammatory properties help to lower risk of chronic inflammation and it is precisely these two types of risk, that when combined pose the greatest threat for cancer development.

Prostate cancer and breast cancer are the best-studied types of cancer with respect to walnut intake and their risk has been found to be reduced by fairly large amounts ( about 3 ounces per day) of walnut consumption.

For breast cancer, most of the evidence has been based on studies of rats and mice while for prostate cancer, the evidence is much stronger as more studies have involved human subjects.

Lower your blood pressure-expose your body to sunshine

High blood pressure is a major health issue and is of global
significance. It was only adults that are known to have or susceptible
to high blood pressure but now millions of youths are living with high
