The Down-Low on Diabetes

Most everyone knows having Type 2 diabetes means your body can’t use insulin properly and results in excess blood sugar.

What those us who without diabetes don’t realize is that it can wreak havoc on your health.

High blood sugar wreaks havoc on your body in the following ways:

• Diabetes causes heart disease as glucose builds up in the blood vessels.
• High blood sugar causes nerve damage in your feet and legs. Rare cases can cause damage in the arms, abdomen and back.
• Vision loss is a common condition among Type 2 diabetes sufferers.
• Diabetes often leads to kidney disease.
• It can also cause sexual problems.
• Type 2 diabetes doubles the chance of Stroke.

Diet and exercise can help manage diabetes and avoid these avoidable health issues. While lifestyle changes are important parts of keeping under control, most patients require oral medications or insulin injections for treatment, too.

Chronic Inflammation and Diabetes – Say What?

Another thing most of us know, chronic inflammation within our tissues has an adverse effect on our health in thousands of adverse ways. Recently a group of researchers from the University of California San Diego School of Medicine has found that chronic inflammation could be the missing link between obesity and diabetes. Inflamed tissues secrete exosomes that carry microRNA, which has been found to cause insulin resistance in mice and during an in vitro study when human liver and fat cells were treated with "obese" exosomes.

"This is a key mechanism of how diabetes works," said Olefsky of University of California San Diego School of Medicine. "If we can find out which of the microRNAs in those exosomes cause the phenotype of diabetes, we can find drug targets."

Determining which miRNAs to target will require more research. However, the team has already found one suspect: microRNA-155, which inhibits a well-known metabolic protein called PPAR. The researchers note that effective anti-diabetic drugs that target this protein do exist but they trigger side effects deemed unacceptable in clinical practice.

"Still, there are a number of microRNAs that we hope will lead to new, highly druggable targets resulting in new insulin-sensitizing therapeutics," said Olefsky. "We can obtain exosomes from blood -- known as a liquid biopsy -- to sequence all of these microRNAs."

By sequencing exosomes, researchers can obtain genetic signatures that could lead to biomarkers for this disease, similar to how liquid biopsies are used to find drugs that will be effective in cancer treatment. Olfesky hopes that biomarkers for diabetes will one day be used to determine if a person is at high risk of diabetes in the next year or never. Biomarkers may also predict which patients will respond to specific therapies.

"This could go beyond insulin resistance," said Olefsky. "Exosomes could be causing other complications of obesity that may not be related to metabolism."

Anti-Inflammatory Diets Fight Diabetes, Pain & More

Inflammation is the immune system’s way of protecting our body by bringing white blood cells to the area of concern via increased blood flow. The increased attention to the affected area might also bring swelling, redness, heat, and pain or discomfort. Perhaps you’ve probably seen this immune system response in action, as a cut or scrape becomes hot and puffy around the wound while the extra blood is running to the wounded area.

When the immune system begins to overreach and attacks healthy body tissues, an autoimmune disorder begins and causes inflammation in otherwise healthy areas of the body. Arthritis and fibromyalgia symptoms, as well as celiac and irritable bowel disease (IBD) all stem from autoimmune disorders. For diseases that aren’t autoimmune, inflammation can still play a part as the body continuously tries to heal the tissues in a given area. Asthma creates inflamed airways; inflammation related to diabetes affects insulin resistance, etc.

Anti-inflammatory diets, aka healing diets, can help us manage inflammation within our tissues. This begins with a menu high in vegetables, fruits, wild meats and sprouted seeds rich with omega-3 benefits. The evidence is clear that such anti-inflammatory foods can regulate our immune systems and help fight many health ailments.

Get Out of Your Seat

Evidence suggests chronic sitting is an independent risk factor for insulin resistance and an early death. Even if you exercise regularly, eat right and are very fit, even a professional level athlete, sitting each day is detrimental. To be specific, research has shown that sitting for more than eight hours a day raises your risk for Type 2 diabetes by 90%. There is a reason standing desks are so popular!

While working out and jarring fitness routines can put your joints at risk for inflammation the risk of inactivity is too great. Educate yourself by working out safely. Wear proper shoes and workout gear. Ask personal trainers and fitness instructors at Prairie Life Fitness about high-intensity training. These workouts effectively stimulate muscles to release anti-inflammatory myokines, which increases glucose use inside muscles and insulin sensitivity.

Also, walk more often. Start by taking the furthest parking spot. It is one small step you can take toward battling diabetes, among many other deadly diseases.
