Diabetes Update #211:Take Standing Breaks

February 1, 2016

By David Mendosa

My New Diabetes Articles for HealthCentral:

Last month I published seven more of my diabetes articles about how to manage our condition:

Victoza Can Reverse Fatty Liver Disease
A new study shows that one of the GLP-1 inhibitors can cure fatty liver disease that besets most of us who have diabetes.

Use Insulin as a FIRST Resort
Insulin should be the first diabetes drug for people with type 2 -- not the last resort.

Taking Standing Breaks Helps Your Health
If you just stand up for five minutes every half hour that you sit, your blood glucose level will be similar to the results of walking that much.

The Best Time to Walk
One study shows that a walk after we eat can get our level back to normal. What another one shows is even better: a walk before eating prevents it from going too high.

Diabetes Educators Can Help Us Manage Our Blood Glucose
When you get trained in managing your diabetes, studies show that it will help about as much as a diabetes drug will.

Did You Set Your Diabetes Goals?
The natural time for you to set higher goals for better diabetes management is the Winter Solstice. Better late than never.
