- My New Diabetes Articles for HealthCentral:
Last month HealthCentral published four more of my diabetes articles about all aspects of the condition:
The Trouble with FiberTesting Coumadin at HomeSome people say that we don't need to count the amount of fiber that we eat. They say that fiber has no effect on our blood glucose level. But it does, as the new test that my diabetes support group just performed shows.
Many people who have diabetes also have chronic atrial fibrillation, deep vein thrombosis, or a mechanical heart valve. They take Coumadin to keep their blood from coagulating too quickly but not quickly enough. Until now, this required regular visits to a lab. But now, you can check your level at home.
Mind over HealthWe need a healthy body to have a healthy mind. But we also need a healthy mind to have a healthy body. It works both ways. Once we overcome the inherent inertia we can both. But it takes motivation.
Walk More, Sit LessGetting up and walking just a few times a week makes a tremendous difference in our health. For people with diabetes getting up and out to walk is even more important than for other people. When I talked with one of the nation's experts on walking I was surprised at how flexible our walking schedule can be.
- Fitness and Photograph for Fun:
Last month I published 11 more of my articles on staying fit by getting the activity we need. Photography is what does it for me:
Golden Gate Canyon
Picket Wire Canyonlands
Family Visit to Boulder
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, November 30, 2011, at 7 p.m. CST, 8 p.m. EST, 6 p.m. MST, and 5 p.m. 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.
