How Crunch Time Affects Kids’ Health
Apr 28, 2013 | 
Although there are small hints that the American obesity epidemic may be slowing a little, one in every three American kids is overweight or obese. To find out why, National Public Radio, together with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Harvard School of Public Health, looked at what goes on in American households between school and bedtime-a period they call "crunch time."
An Interview With My Husband, Rick
Apr 27, 2013 | 
I wanted to interview my husband about my diabetes. He played a huge part in helping me accept my type 1 diabetes and he has never made me feel inferior for having it. Rick and I just celebrated the 15th anniversary since our first date, and since I've only had diabetes for 18 years, he's been there for most of it.  He was there during the times I was out of control and in denial, and he's been there while I work on treating myself right and trying to take good care of myself.

Is it dangerous to continually have low-grade ketone levels in your blood?
Apr 17, 2013 | 
Low-grade ketones are not a problem; it's part of the survival system that humans have for getting through famines. We don't have many famines nowadays, but if they're not eating overnight, a large percent of the population is going to have ketones in their blood in the morning.
What meds do you recommend to control elevated cholesterol?
Apr 12, 2013 | 
In my experience the most common cause of elevated cholesterol is low thyroid. High blood sugars also have an effect on LDL that can be very dramatic. If someone has elevated cholesterol, diabetic or not, the very first thing you do is check their free and total T3, and free and total T4. When you give them adequate thyroid replacement, the LDL usually normalizes.
Five Simple Ways to Lower Your Blood Sugar
Apr 4, 2013 | 
Diabetes can seem complicated and overwhelming, full of charts and devices and concerned-looking medical professionals. There's talk of hormones and endocrine systems, of obscure organizations and dietary plans.
How do you evaluate the studies that show that strict control of A1c does not have a beneficial effect on cardiovascular events?
Apr 2, 2013 | 
This person is referring to the ACCORD study, which in its initial unsophisticated scoring supposedly showed that a large group of elderly diabetics who had existing heart disease, died sooner when their A1cs were brought down.
Are very low-carb diets safe for children? Is it something you recommend?
Mar 28, 2013 | 
The effect of carbohydrate on blood sugar will be multiplied in inverse proportion to childrens' weight. This means that the smaller they are, the greater effect a little bit of carbohydrate will have on them. It's been shown that children with elevated blood sugars (usually due in part to high carbohydrate intake) have diminished brain volume and lower IQs.
