    Diabetes Educator Conference - Update

    Iím back from Vegas and the American Association of Diabetes Educators national conference.

    A few sessions I attended covered:
    • GLP-1 hormone.  Most people with Type 2 diabetes have low levels of GLP-1,
    • Insulin pump therapy as an effective way to treat uncontrolled Type 2 diabetes, and
    • Better results when the entire family is involved (not just just the person with diabetes) in making lifestyle changes.

    I also met an inspirational person from...

    The Amazing Race

    Natalie Strand, MD - winner of The Amazing Race and Type 1 diabetic.

    Tip of the Week - ABCs of Diabetes

  • A1c test reveals what your average blood sugar has been running over the past 3 months.  According to the National Institutes of Health, for every percentage point decrease in A1c, risk for eye, kidney, or nerve complications are reduced by 40%.
  • Blood pressure indicates risk for heart disease when elevated.  The American Diabetes Association (ADA) recommends a blood pressure less than 130/80 for those with diabetes.
  • Cholesterol that is commonly called the bad cholesterol is known as LDL cholesterol.  This bad cholesterol increases risk for heart disease.  The ADA recommends a LDL cholesterol level below 100 mg/dl for those with diabetes.
  • Ask for these tests at your next doctor's visit.

    E-mails to Christine

    Q:  What's all the hype with High Fructose Corn Syrup?  Isn't it just another sugar?

    Greg's Exercise Tips


    Follow me on Twitter for exercise tips! (Christine says I need friends)

    Minimize impact on joints with shoes designed for your activity.  If you walk for exercise, purchase walking shoes (and if you jog or run purchase running shoes).  Shoes designed for a specific activity can help prevent injury to joints and reduce foot, ankle, and knee stress. Replace running and walking shoes every three months.  *Tennis shoes & cross-trainer shoes are not the same as running shoes and walking shoes.
