Diabetes Update 147: Visualize Yourself

  • Last month HealthCentral published five more of my diabetes articles about all aspects of the condition:

  • Visualize Yourself. My doctor's shock treatment for his patients who have diabetes is to visualize themselves 15 years later. I do this and recommend it to you too.

  • Promises to Myself. Do you want to make any promises -- either public or private -- to help promote your weight loss and better health? I made some promises and announcing them here is working for me.

  • Eating Blueberries with a Smile. We no longer need to feel guilty when we enjoy blueberries. A new study indicates that eating them significantly improves our insulin sensitivity.

  • Avandia Going Away. If you take Avandia, you need to see your doctor right away. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration just pulled the major diabetes drug Avandia (rosiglitazone) from the U.S. market -- with two exceptions.

  • Dr. Bernstein's Webcast

    If you have any interest in controlling your diabetes by low-carb eating, one of the best resources is Dr. Richard K. Bernstein's monthly webcast. It's an hour of excellent diabetes education.

    Dr. Bernstein's next live tele-seminar is Wednesday, October 27, at 8:00 PM EST, 7:00 PM CST, 6:00 PM MST, and 5:00 PM PST. He designed it to answer your most important questions concerning diabetes and to offer his thoughts on the latest developments in this area.

    The seminar is free. You can click here to register: http://www.diabetes911.net/askdrb/index.php. It's also available as a live webcast both on the Internet and by phone.

You can search for all of the articles on my site or for the "Diabetes Developments" blog or the "Fitness and Photography for Fun" blog or what I have written at Health Central.
