The Latest on Lifestyle Changes, Low Blood Sugar and Insulin Resistance

Diabetes RiskTired of all the holiday stories on the Web? Here’s smart, useful information that could actually help you in your diabetes prevention and treatment plan.

A look at what’s happening in diabetes news lately…

  • Is there gender equality in diabetes prevention? You betcha! A new study published in the journal Diabetologia found that both men and women who adopted preventative lifestyle changes to avoid diabetes experienced a 40% decrease in their risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Both genders saw similar results in weight loss and reduced glucose levels.
  • A British study reports there’s a link between low blood sugar and an increased risk of cardiovascular events (and death) in patients with diabetes. The researchers found that following hypoglycemia, insulin-treated patients with diabetes had a 60% higher risk of cardiovascular events and were 2-2 ½ times more likely to die.
  • Think eating foods low on the glycemic index will help with insulin resistance? Not so. According to a JAMA study, overweight and obese people who followed a diet consisting of low-glycemic index foods did not have improved insulin sensitivity, cholesterol levels, or systolic blood pressure.

Why Take Supplements?
Most Americans don’t get enough vitamin D from sunlight, especially people who live in northern climates or who are dark-skinned, which is why supplementing with vitamin D is so important. (The vitamin helps the body absorb calcium.) A multivitamin containing 12 essential vitamins and minerals, including vitamins B,C and E, and zinc, is also a must-have.

The Financial Cost of Prediabetes Is Growing in the U.S.


As Diabetes Continues to Affect More People, Prediabetes

Diabetes RiskPrediabetes is becoming a more costly disease, as the cost of prediabetes has increased a whopping 74% over the last five years, says a new study published in the journal Diabetes Care.

About 86 million Americans have prediabetes, the condition that comes before a type 2 diabetes diagnosis. It’s largely symptomless, which is why so many people are unaware they have the condition until they are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.

It’s estimated that diabetes costs the U.S. about $322 billion in medical costs and productivity loss, or about $1,000 for each American.

These results highlight the importance of better diabetes prevention and treatment, say diabetes experts.
