How High Blood Sugar Can Promote Alzheimer’s Disease

| March 13, 2017 | Comments (0)

It is well known that diabetes patients are at an increased risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease, compared to people without the condition. In fact, as I mentioned here, some researchers feel that Alzheimer’s disease could be accurately described as type 3 diabetes, since it is a form of insulin dysfunction in the brain that has […]

PCB Pollutants Could Cause Gestational Diabetes

Certain pesticides can block melatonin receptors and play havoc with our body clocks and blood sugar levels, as I explained in my last blog post. And this is just one way in which artificial chemicals in the environment have been linked to diabetes and metabolic syndrome. I wrote here how hormone-disrupting pollutants can lead to […]

Getting a good night’s sleep is important for preventing, and helping to control, type 2 diabetes, as I explained in a previous post here. And hormone-disrupting pesticides and other pollutants can also be a contributory cause of the condition, as I mentioned here. Now scientists have shown how these two risk factors can be connected, […]

Sugar Drives Ceramide Production In The Body

| December 17, 2016 | Comments (0)

In my last blog post, I reported on research linking body levels of fat-like substances called ceramides with insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. But while scientists search for variations in our genes that cause us to overproduce ceramides, perhaps we should also be looking at what we eat. The liver has a mind-boggling array […]

Fat-Like Ceramides Could Cause Type 2 Diabetes

| December 13, 2016 | Comments (0)

The popular view of type 2 diabetes, even in the minds of some medical professionals, is that it goes hand-in-hand with obesity. Of course, that is an over-simplification – thin people can, and do, get type 2 diabetes, too. As I mentioned here, your level of risk depends far more on how metabolically healthy you […]

| November 26, 2016 | Comments (0)

Not long ago, we were being urged to get plenty of calcium in order to protect our bones. But now, not only does it seem calcium supplements make little or no difference to osteoporosis risk, they could potentially cause heart disease, as I reported in my last blog post. The damage too much calcium can […]

That Calcium Supplement Could Be Damaging Your Heart

| November 22, 2016 | Comments (0)

I reported in an earlier blog post here on a review of scientific studies showing that taking calcium supplements did nothing to reduce the risk of bone fractures in people with diabetes. Now it seems that taking too much calcium could actually be dangerous – clogging the arteries and damaging the heart. People with diabetes […]

US Doctors Could Be Seeing The Light On Statins

| November 19, 2016 | Comments (0)

Dear Reader, I was amused by Dr Malcom Kendrick’s 2014 blog post here, following a study showing fat consumption is not linked with heart disease. He likens the “cholesterol hypothesis” – i.e. dietary fat causes high blood cholesterol, which raises cardiovascular risks – to a dinosaur that has been shot in the head, but still […]

Guess What? Study Shows Diet Is Better Than Statins

| November 15, 2016 | Comments (0)

I have warned of the risks associated with cholesterol-lowering statins many times on The Real Diabetes Truth over the last five years. These widely-prescribed pills lower cholesterol levels and – if you believe Big Pharma’s hype – are supposed to slash your risk of having a heart attack or stroke. Yet, as I mentioned here, […]

Can Intensive Blood Sugar Control Increase Your Death Risk?

| November 1, 2016 | Comments (2)

As I mentioned in a recent post here, when treating type 2 diabetes, doctors often aim to get blood sugar down to the target levels set out in national guidelines. Reaching these targets can easily become an end in itself. But the research I reported on in that earlier post showed that tight blood sugar […]
