Diabetes Update 141: Vacation Control

  • So far I have written 454 articles for the Health Central Network about all aspects of diabetes. In March this website published five more of my new diabetes articles:

  • Vacation Control. During almost all of March I was vacationing in New Zealand. Like most people, my attention wandered a bit from my normal tight control. My diet changed, but I kept it in check. Here's how.
  • Sacha Inchi Seeds. Now I can bring you news of another seed that is every bit as good for us as flax and chia seeds -- and tastes even better. It goes by the strange name "sacha inchi."
  • LipidLab Omega-3 Test. LipidLab is the second laboratory to offer us the essential test of our omega-3 fat levels. Both companies offer us special rates.
  • Sources of Omega-3. Knowing where to get the omega-3 that is essential for a healthy heart matters. The good news, especially for vegetarians, is that seafood isn't the only source.
  • Eating Too Fast. Eating slowly has been one of the hardest eating lessons that I have had to learn. Not until I admitted to a friend that I always eat too fast have I been able to control my eating speed. My acknowledgment to another person was the key to controlling my behavior. And maybe for you too.

Dr. Bernstein's Webcast

If you have any interest in controlling your diabetes by low-carb eating, one of the best resources is Dr. Richard K. Bernstein's monthly webcast. It's an hour of excellent diabetes education.

Dr. Bernstein's next live Tele-Seminar is Wednesday, April 28, at 8:00 PM EST, 7:00 PM CST, 6:00 PM MST, and 5:00 PM PST. He designed it to answer your most important questions concerning diabetes and to offer his thoughts on the latest developments in this area. The seminar is free. You can click here to register: http://www.diabetes911.net/askdrb/index.php. It's also available as a live webcast both on the Internet and by phone.

The special subject of this discussion is,"How much do I pay per year to treat my diabetes?"
