Goods Carbs vs. Bad Carbs

How do we tell the difference between good carbs and bad carbs? It’s important that we understand the type of carbs we eat because the type dictates how the carbs respond in the body. Whole, unprocessed carbs are considered healthy carbs. Some examples include sweet potatoes, potatoes, brown rice, yucca, legumes and dates. All these foods have their nutrients intact and have been minimally altered to impact the nutritional value of the food.

Refined carbs are carbohydrates without the fiber content present. They have been altered in such a way that the processing methods strips the food of the many key vitamins, minerals and fatty acids. Examples of refined carbs include fruit drinks, white flour, white rice, white pasta and pastries. Healthy carbs impact insulin levels in the body much differently than refined, processed carbs do.

Not all carbohydrates are considered “bad.” Healthy carbohydrates, which are high in sugar and starch, do exhibit vastly different effects on the body than refined carbs do. For example, purple sweet potatoes are high in various complex sugar molecules, unrefined starches and various vitamins, trace minerals, and phytochemicals like anthocyanins.

Best Good Carbs

  • Sweet potatoes
  • Bananas
  • Potatoes
  • Brown rice
  • Dates
  • Buckwheat
  • Quinoa

Unhealthy carbs include fruit drinks, white flour, white rice, white pasta, pastries.

  • It’s important to understand that we all respond differently to carbohydrate consumption. First and foremost is starting with healthy, complex carbs and then assessing what you feel is the right amount that suits your own unique genetic makeup.
  • At the end of the day, carbs can be quite nourishing and beneficial for our health and performance. It’s all about emphasizing a mind-set around quality of the carbs over quantity that will ultimately make the difference for you.
  • You want to stick to good carbs, including buckwheat, purple sweet potatoes, quinoa, dates, bananas and more, while avoiding processed, unhealthy, refined carbs like fruit drinks, white rice and white flour.

Metformin and Peripheral Neuropathy

Diabetes patients taking metformin should have their vitamin B12 levels assessed regularly to avoid peripheral nerve damage, that is according to researchers at  Nottingham University Hospitals, Nottingham.

What is peripheral neuropathy?  It is the term for nerve damage caused by diabetes, a chronic condition that occurs when the body doesn’t use the hormone insulin properly. Neuropathy can form anywhere but is most likely to affect nerves running through the limbs, hands and feet.

60 percent to 70 percent of all diabetics experience some form of neuropathy. For some people, only mild symptoms develop from nerve damage, such as tingling or numbness in the limbs. But for others, neuropathy causes a good amount of pain, digestive issues, problems with the heart and blood vessels, the inability to go about life normally, and even death if major organs are affected badly enough.

While metformin is recommended for the first-line treatment of type 2 diabetes, it is associated with vitamin B12 deficiency, which itself increases the risk of peripheral neuropathy.

Not a Very Well-known Side Effect

In their study of more than 150 women with diabetes presented at the Society for Endocrinology BES 2018 conference in Glasgow, the researchers showed that 64% had not been tested for vitamin B12 deficiency.

Moreover, almost 10% of patients were found to have vitamin B12 deficiency, although only just over 6% were being treated.

“It’s only if you’re an endocrinologist you will know about it,” she said, pointing out that, if a patient with diabetes develops nerve damage it gets “attributed to the fact that they have diabetes”.

What Are Antioxidants And Why You Should Eat Them

Antioxidants are substances that inhibits oxidation, especially ones used to counteract the deterioration of stored food products or removes potentially damaging oxidizing agents in a living organism.

Antioxidants help counter oxidative stress, and may boost your immune system and decrease your risk of infection. The best source of antioxidant vitamins and minerals is a wholesome, colorful, varied diet that includes plenty of fresh (preferably organic) fruits, vegetables and nuts.

Antioxidant sources, like antioxidant foods, herbs, spices and teas, reduce the effects of free radicals, also called oxidative damage/stress, which plays a major role in disease formation. The leading health problems facing us today — including conditions like heart disease, cancer and dementia — have been linked to increased levels of oxidative damage and inflammation.

The following is a list of the top-ranked food sources of antioxidants based on serving size. Add them to your grocery list!

  1. Blackberries
  2. Walnuts
  3. Strawberries
  4. Artichokes (prepared)
  5. Cranberries
  6.  Coffee
  7. Raspberries
  8. Pecans
  9. Blueberries
  10. Ground cloves
  11. Grape juice
  12. Chocolate, baking, unsweetened
  13. Cranberry juice
  14. Sour cherries
  15. Red wine

 

Supplements for Diabetics

Many people who have  diabetes use complementary and alternative medications to lower blood glucose, researchers indicate that this is an ‘emerging trend.’ A number of complementary and alternative medications can potentially lower blood sugar, and many patients look at these substances as more natural than synthetic drugs.

Many  vitamins have antioxidant potential that may complement diabetic medications. The Journal Diabetology & Metabolic Syndrome has published a systematic review and meta-analysis of vitamins that have antioxidant potential and their use among patients who have type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). The findings discuss a total of 12 studies that looked at antioxidant outcomes. The vitamins that were studied included vitamins B, C, D and E.

Vitamin E was related to significant reduction of blood glucose and glycated hemoglobin compared to placebo. The researchers suggest that vitamin E may reduce damage incurred from free radicals on structural and functional components of cells and vessel walls.

Vitamins C and E and glutathione, all of which are nonenzymatic antioxidants, seem to be able to interrupt free radical chain reactions. There is intense interest in administering these vitamins in combination. Some evidence indicates that long-term use of dietary supplements, including multivitamin or mineral complexes may improve C-reactive protein, HDL cholesterol, serum homocysteine, blood pressure, and incidence of diabetes.

Doses ranged from 500 to 3000 mg/day for vitamin C; from 400 to 1600 IU/day for vitamin E; and from 500 to 200,000 IU/day for vitamin D. Vitamin supplementation with vitamins E and C may help reduce diabetes complications and enhance antioxidant capacity.
