Do You Live With Someone With Diabetes?
Some of you will be living with and/or caring for someone with the condition, our goal is to help you understand what you can do to help them achieve a better lifestyle even though they have Diabetes.
Every day we hear about more and more people living a lifestyle which creates a greater risk to their bodies from a range of conditions they can easily avoid. Diabetes is one of those conditions which can directly affect your lifestyle.
Ask yourself some simple questions:
Do you eat to live or live to eat, you may just think this is a play on words so let me break it down for you.
Do you eat to live? The body needs food to fuel it, eating the right food is crucial, the body can quickly turn some foods into energy giving you the ability to easily do the things you want. Too many foods include substances the body has difficulty turning into energy, instead the body stores this as fat. Many foods these days have additives which the body tries to handle, but the consequence is usually cell damage making it harder for the cells to convert food into energy.
We will be sharing a wide range of information about what foods to eat and why, we will also be discussing what foods to avoid and why.
Do you live to eat? Food is eaten for all sorts of reasons, often the reason is simple, as a child you were encouraged to eat all your food, the consequence is as you get older you tend to eat more.
Another reason why people eat lots of food is down to the fast food market, they provide food in proportions which are more than most people need. Unfortunately many fast foods include substances which the body has difficulty turning into energy which means the body stores them as fat.
Another reason for living to eat is stress and anxiety, people often find food is a good way to escape from the pressures of life.
Simple Tips And Ideas To Help
We will be sharing simple tips and ideas everyone can use to ensure the foods you eat can be turned into energy and what you need to avoid minimising the damage to your body’s cell structure so reducing the damage and risk of diabetes.

In todays Blog post I want to share a very important message for anyone who is concerned about Diabetes.
Posted: Thursday 16th May 2013
Every day we hear the word on radio and TV and in other media and most people think it won’t happen to them. Take note as it is happening to someone near you.
It is amazing how few people are diagnosed with this condition in the early stages often because they do not recognise the symptoms.
As with so many conditions it is surprising to know how few people really know the impact Diabetes can have on the health of people.
We are working hard to provide anyone affected by Diabetes with as much information as we can to help you or someone you know live a better life style with this condition.
There is very little more uncomforatble than being told you have a condition which will affect your life. In my experience the first thought is what is it and how will I be able to cope now I am ill. If what I have just said fits your circumstances or those of someone you know then you are in the right place. Please read on.
Can you imagine 3 million people out of 60 million have been diagnosed with Diabetes in te UK. Most of these cases are Type 2 diabetes, caused by the UK's ageing population and rapidly rising numbers of overweight and obese people. Another 850,000 people are thought to have undiagnosed Type 2 diabetes.
The skill with any condition is to spot the symptoms early and then stop them from developing further, lets look at how you can do this.
This is the biggest problem for many conditions of the human body, it takes time for the cells of the body to break down making diagnosis difficult due to the slow deteriation.
As stated in undertsanding Diabetes knowing what the symptoms are is crucial, in this article we take a close look at the symptoms.
