Symptom of Diabetes: Gastroparesis

Stomach trouble is one of the
symptoms of persistent high
blood sugar
or diabetes. I have written in my
previous article that one of the
symptoms of persistent and
uncontrolled high blood sugar is
nerve
damage, a condition known as
neuropathy. Therefore, diabetes
or high
blood sugar can also damages
the nerve that helps stomach to
empty
and transport food smoothly
through the digestive tract.
This inability of the stomach to
empty food quickly enough as a
result
of persistent high blood sugar
can lead to many diabetes
complications. This inability of
the stomach to process and
empty food
swiftly is a condition known as
gastroparesis.
3 SYMPTOMS OF GASTROPARESIS
1. This could cause unpleasant
abdominal
problems like diarrhea,
constipation, or incontinence.
2. It may also lead to difficulty in
eating or swallowing.
3. Gastroparesis can make it
uneasy to control your high
blood sugar
or diabetes.

Being able to read how you feel

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.

researchers asked 69 sedentary

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

powerful than the acid in our
intestine thus reducing the
power of the intestine to kill

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
