Daily Life

From Elizabeth Woolley, your Guide to Type 2 Diabetes
In my latest blog post, I give information on a study that links TV viewing time to significantly increased risk for type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and even premature death. It may come as a shock (or perhaps not) that the authors of the study point out the fact that aside from working and sleeping, many populations report TV viewing as the most common daily activity. So today I am providing links to helpful information to help you avoid this increased risk.

Design Your Own Fast Workout
It's not necessary to join a gym or have a personal trainer. You can design your own fast workout that you'll know you'll enjoy. Remember, just 20 minutes a day! Use TV to your advantage. Dance, walk around the house, or hit the stairs during commercials.

Exercise Motivation Challenges?
I'm willing to bet that there are more people who hate to exercise than there are people who love it. Let the whining begin. Let there be as much drama as we can stand about the unfairness of life. Get it all out in the open. And when it's all said and done, realize that we still have to roll off the couch and move.

Reduce Diabetes Risk in Your Kids
Kids are becoming more sedentary and eating more junk food than ever before. With the advent of handheld electronic games, computers and ever more available television channels, kids have more reason to sit for long periods of time. This increases the risk for developing type 2 diabetes and other "adult" conditions. Here are some ways to help your child stay healthy.

Tactics to Reduce TV Time
People with diabetes are no strangers to complex devices. They deal with things, such as blood glucose meters, insulin injectors, food scales and sometimes insulin pumps on a daily basis. When it comes to controlling diabetes, though, the machine that could have the biggest impact of all on their lives is not a medical appliance -- it's the TV. Here are some tactics to reduce TV time.
