The following notes show some interesting possible causes and suggested treatments of diabetes.
1) Men with testosterone levels in the low normal range are much more likely to have diabetes than those with higher levels, independent of obesity.
2) Young couch potatoes have more to worry about than just their weight. New research shows that watching TV and not getting exercise increase children's risk of later developing type 2 diabetes, as well as heart disease and other conditions.
3) Some common blood pressure drugs can substantially increase the risk of diabetes, especially among those already at risk for the condition, U. S. researchers report.
4) People who suffer from job burnout (i. e. emotional exhaustion, physical fatigue, and cognitive weariness) may be prone to developing type 2 diabetes, according to a report published by Tel Aviv University in the journal Psychosomatic Medicine.
5) A new study says passive smokers may be at higher risk of developing diabetes according to the American study, published in the British Medical Journal. Toxins in cigarette smoke could affect the pancreas, which produces the blood-sugar regulating hormone insulin.
1) The American Diabetes Association's general exercise recommendations for people with type 2 diabetes include at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity or 90 minutes of intense aerobics each week, spread out over at least three days. It also recommends strength training on three days each week.
2) U. S. researchers reported recently that soy yogurt, especially with fruit in it, may help control both type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure. The researched studied certain plant compounds that affect enzymes targeted by diabetes drugs, notably alpha-amylase and alpha-glucosidase.
3) Researchers from New Zealand's Auckland University of Technology found that combining resistance training (e. g. weight lifting) with aerobic workouts appears to be the most beneficial for type for long-term control of blood sugar control than either form of exercise alone. Exercise is an important part of therapy for type 2 diabetes since physical inactivity increases diabetes risk.
4) An effective management of Type 2 Diabetes includes a close attention to a balanced diabetes diet with regular exercise. The diet must consist of the right amount of proteins, carbohydrates, fats, minerals and vitamins. A high fiber with low salt and sugar regime would be very useful.
5) A good exercise includes brisk walking or cycling for about 20 to 30 minutes each day for about three days a week. A proper diet with adequate exercise should allow you to control both your weight and blood sugar. Sugar level should be measured and monitored regularly. It is advisable that you acquire your own BGM (Blood Glucose Meter).
