Last month HealthCentral published five more of my diabetes articles about all aspects of the condition:Easy Summer Living with Diabetes
Summer means rest and relaxation. But people with diabetes have to make sure not to get too much of it.
A tiny bit of brisk walking at the right time can have a huge effect on our blood sugar levels.
Diabetes Supplements are Drugs Too
The social problems that accompany diabetes and being overweight can be as serious as the physical ones. In fact, they can make the physical problems worse.
Recruiting Adults with Type 2 Diabetes:
I am currently recruiting adults with type 2 diabetes to participate in my doctoral dissertation, which will offer a free 8 week internet-based program that will teach participants skills for stress and mood management. It is our hypothesis that the program will not only improve mood and reduce stress, but also result in better diabetes management. The stress and mood management program is something that has been benefitted many people in the past and there is previous research to suggest that decreasing stress also decreases A1c. This free offering of an effective and convenient program is a great opportunity for people living with diabetes. I hope you agree and can help me share information about this study with those that visit your website. I know that you do not share your email lists or place advertisements in your newsletters. However, if there is any way that you would consider it appropriate to mention the study to your readers/visitors, I would be very grateful. The study is completely voluntary and approved by the Institutional Review Board at the University of South Florida. The only thing that I gain from others’ participation is the potential to complete my Ph.D. I would be happy to share additional information about the study or discuss any ideas that you have regarding advertising. You can also learn more about the study at www.diabetesstressrelief.com. Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

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 available free either on the Internet or by phone. You can click here to register http://www.diabetes911.net/askdrb/index.php.
Dr. Bernstein's next live webcast will be on Wednesday, July 31 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.
Whenever you want to find anything that I have written about diabetes -- whether on my website or on HealthCentral Network -- the easiest way is to use the search tool on my site. 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 HealthCentral, which is now a part of Remedy Health Media.
Just go to mendosa.com/search and check which one of the four sites you want to search and enter what you want to find in the search block.
The Health Central Network will now notify you by email of new articles (SharePosts) by me or anyone who posts at HealthCentral.com. Just click on "Subscribe" at the top of each of my articles or on my "Profile" page.
Each month I describe and link my new Health Central articles here. But you can also use a blog reader to keep up with my articles more quickly. I use Bloglines, as I describe in my article, “Reading Health Blogs.”
