Weight Loss can sometimes be an effective antidote to sleep apnea, a study has found. People with type 2 diabetes or are overweight (or both) are prone to the sleep disorder, which causes a person to struggle for air through-out the night and increases the risk of heart attack, stroke, and death. The study placed 264 obese people with type 2 diabetes and sleep apnea in either an intensive weight loss program or a diabetes support group. The weight loss group was told to follow a strick diet and get 175 minutes per week of exercise, such a brisk walking. After a year, the weight-loss participants had lost an average of 24 pounds, and sleep apnea disappeared in 14 % of them.

“AGE is short for advanced glycation end products. AGE proteins can age your arteries and cause big health trouble faster than the kid at the counter can ask if you want fries with that. What exactly are AGE’s? In short they’re destructive “Franken Proteins” created by high-temperature cooking and also by the interaction of proteins and sugars in your bloodstream. Diet is the biggest source of the AGEs raging through your bloodstream. What’s good about that is that new research from Mt. Sinai School of Medicine in New York City reveals that you can lower your AGE levels by making a few smart food choices more often and tweaking the way you cook your food.” You can also supplement your diet with a new product.

Researchers say Mom was right: Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. A study of 93 overweight Latino-kids with a family history of type 2 diabetes found that those who skipped breakfast had more abdominal fat than the kids who are breakfast regularly–regardless of total body fat and total daily calorie intake. The finding is particularly important because deep abdominal fat is a rish facto for insulin resistance and diabetes.” -Diabetes Forcast, Nov. 2009-
“Dining more often on fish may keep your mind fresh. When researchers interviewed nearly 15,000 adults age 65 and over in seven low and middle-income families, they discovered that those who ate fish almost every day were 19% less likely to have dementia than those who are it less frequently. Plus, the amount of fish the seniors are was directly linked to disease risk. So, upping fish intake even a little can lower the chance of developing dementia.” – Diabetes Forcast, Nov. 2009
