My New Diabetes Articles for HealthCentral:
Last month I published three more of my diabetes articles about how to manage our condition:
The Way to Reduce Your A1C Fast
If you have diabetes and increase how often you check your blood glucose, your A1C level will probably go lower.
Can an Eye Exam Save Your Sight?
About eight million Americans with diabetes have retinopathy, but you don’t have to be in that number when you get your regular dilated eye exam.
We Might Yet Win the War with Big Sugar
Sugar-sweetened soda leads to diabetes, studies show. But we are winning the fight against sugar.
I write slideshows about diabetes for HealthCentral.com. This is my new one:
The Five Keys to Eating Right for Diabetes Health
Your diet is no exception to the fundamental way to manage diabetes: the ball is in your court.
The Store is Gone
I took down the Mendosa Store from my website this month. I had several reasons to do that. One reason is that I wanted to offer only those diabetes-related products that I know can help you and that I could offer at a discount. But I never found very many of them. Another reason is that some people are suspicious of any website that offers anything for sale no matter how good the product is.
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 to register at no cost here: www.askdrbernstein.com and you can ask a question or not as you choose.
The webcast is available for ten days at www.askdrbernstein.com, and then it is moved over to www.thebernsteinconnection.com, where a membership fee provides access all of his videos, webcasts, and transcripts.
Dr. Bernstein's next live webcast will be on Wednesday, January 25, 2017, at 7:00 p.m. CST, 8:00 p.m. EST, 6:00 p.m. MST, and 5:00 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.
