Last month HealthCentral published five more of my diabetes articles about all aspects of the condition:
Generic Test Strips for Diabetes
The FDA approved two brands of generic test strips. But it says that one brand isn’t accurate.
Short-term Insulin: Long-term Results for Type 2 Diabetes
New studies show that when introduced early in the course of type 2 diabetes, treatment with short-term insulin therapy for two to three weeks can restore the body’s ability to make and use insulin.
The Glycemic Index Still Matters for Diabetes
A low-carb diet isn’t a no-carb diet. In fact, the glycemic index is as important for those of us who eat 50 or fewer grams of carbohydrates a day as for people who use insulin or pills.
Exercise Snacks Control Diabetes Levels Better
A new concept of exercise snacking shows that brief but intense exercise before meals can help us manage our diabetes better.
Two Large Meals a Day for Diabetes
A new study shows that some people with type 2 diabetes who ate only breakfast and lunch lost more weight than when they ate six smaller meals a day. They also had bigger decreases in fasting blood sugar.
New Flickr Site
I keep added some of my favorites nature photographs on Flickr.com. In the past month I have added several more. You can find them the easiest way by clicking here.
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 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, June 25, 2014, at 7PM CST, 8PM EST, 6PM MST, 5PM PST. He designed it to answer your most important questions concerning diabetes and to offer his thoughts on the latest developments in this area.
Searching for My Articles
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.”This Newsletter:
- Is and will remain free.
- Will never include advertising (except targeted Google ads at the bottom of the web page and not in the email newsletter).
- Nor will I ever sell, rent, or trade your email address to anyone.
- I will link sources of information.
- I will disclose any conflict of interest.
- If and when I learn of any errors of fact, I will correct them.
Archives: I now send out Diabetes Update once a month. Previous issues are online at Older Issues.
