Diabetes Update #198: Remission Can Be Better than a Cure

January 1, 2015

By David Mendosa


My New Diabetes Articles for HealthCentral:

Last month HealthCentral published six more of my diabetes articles about all aspects of the condition:

Painless Testing for Diabetes
Unfortunately, if you are reading my article about the Genteel lancing device here for the first time, it’s too late to get the $30 discount. But it’s still the only painless way to check our blood sugar level and a bargain at any price.

Hunger is Not the Enemy of Diabetes
We get less hungry when we follow a very low-carb diet. And the little hunger that we do get can actually help us.

When Remission is Better Than a Cure for Diabetes
People with diabetes want a cure! But for some of us remission is better.

Manage Your Diabetes with Diabetes University
You can now see the first sessions where Dr. Richard K. Bernstein guides us through the thickets of diabetes.

The Difference Between Types of Diabetes
Finding whether they have type 1 or type 2 diabetes concerns some people. But even doctors can’t always figure it out.

Vegetarian and Low-carb Diets for Diabetes
The two healthiest diets work well together for managing our diabetes.

Fitness and Photograph for Fun:

Last month I published two more of my articles on staying fit by getting the activity we need. Photography gets me to hike, and hiking keeps me fit:

The Road Less Traveled
The road through the wilder parts of Sawhill Ponds mostly isn’t even a trail. But it provided a couple of lovely sightings, including a Tundra Swan.

Time Passes Slowly
The best way to see nature is slowly, at its pace. To relax some stress I did that by sitting two hours at Josh’s Pond, watching the birds and wildlife there.
