Why Coke and Pepsi Will Talk Obesity, but Not Diabetes

One of the symptoms is extreme thirst, and of course this happened during a heat wave, so of course she was thirsty, we were all thirsty and then one of the other symptoms is excessive urinating. Well, if you just drank the equivalent of an aquarium full of water, of course youre going to have to go to the bathroom. Other symptoms of diabetes include weight change, extreme fatigue or lack of energy, blurred vision, tingling or numbness in the hands or feet, frequent or recurring infections and cuts and bruises that are slow to heal. Rowan had most of these symptoms leading up to her hospital visit. Clark had taken her daughter to see two separate doctors in an effort to figure out what was going on, but diabetes was never thought to be a cause, and therefore it was never tested for. I just want to let other parents know that if they see these symptoms, please do not let it go.

In a study published in the journal Nature, researchers suggested that glucose regulation is controlled by coordinated interactions between both the brain and insulin-producing tissues in the pancreas a theory that could eventually pave the way for new treatments for the disease. Based on a review of both human and animal studies, the researchers speculated that while the pancreas reacts to increased levels of blood glucose by releasing more insulin, the brain is also heavily involved in helping the body maintain normal glucose levels. Type 2 diabetes occurs when both of these systems fail, according to Medical News Today. Currently, treatments for type 2 diabetes rely almost exclusively on methods that attempt to either increase insulin or regulate the bodys sensitivity to insulin.

I completely understood their logic. But, in my opinion, diabetes is quirky! A lot of quirky people have diabetes. Diabetes may even make us quirky. We all have nerdy carb-counting apps on our phones.

Some nutrition and diet studies may overstate results

Obviously a healthy, well-balanced diet is what everyone needs. Sunny Nutrition suggests protein-rich meals and snacks for weight loss, in addition to Herbalife shakes. People can choose to do or not do what they want. But, she added, I know a lot of people who have had amazing results. In fact, when visited Sunny Nutrition recently to learn about the club, one of the members said she had lost 40 pounds by using the shakes as meal substitutes twice a day. She was back again to restart her weight loss regimen since a few pounds had crept back on over the summer. Another new member, Eloy resident Paul Rodriguez, said that the concept of the Nutrition Club was motivating, as he and his wife sat there and sipped their protein shakes around dinnertime. The concept of the nutrition club, and its success, could be due not only to the friendly interaction with Erika and Erandi, but may represent a cultural phenomenon, in addition to the health and weight loss planning.

The overreaching statements included inappropriately describing a correlation as a cause-and-effect relationship and generalizing a study’s claims to large groups of people when the study population was quite different. Although those overstatements may be unintentional, they can distort what doctors, policymakers and the general public know about nutrition, the researchers said. Unfunded studies had more problems than funded studies, regardless of what type of group paid for the study, they found. “Whether it was a private foundation or government entity or for-profit organization, funded studies generally had in our study, less overstatements of results by authors,” Menachemi said.
