Sugar and Hyperactivity in Children – Separating Fact from Fiction

Hyperactive behavior in children is often blamed on high sugar consumption. Although several studies support this common belief, others take issue with the purported sugar-behavior connection. Some medical experts assert that in addition to the potential for hyperactivity, packaged sweets, candy and other simple sugars can pose certain health risks when a child overindulges.

“Sugar and Hyperactivity in Children – Separating Fact from Fiction” presents compelling arguments that sugar negatively affects a child’s behavior while providing equally convincing research that contends sugar — at least when consumed in moderation — does not lead to hyperactivity and is, in fact, basically harmless. One study went so far as to suggest that eating sugar actually improves a child’s attention span.

Only the most credible medical experts and journals including the American Academy of Pediatrics, American Heart Association, Children’s Hospital Boston, British Medical Journal and Journal of Development and Behavioral Pediatrics were referenced when compiling “Sugar and Hyperactivity in Children – Separating Fact from Fiction.”

Obese Children and the Complications They Face, Diabetes, Heart, Liver and Kidney Failure, Blindness, Amputation and Nerve Damage

Childhood Obesity has become a global problem. Obese Kids aged 10 years are developing, among other diseases, Type 2 Diabetes, also known as Adult Onset Diabetes, in other words, an “Old Person’s Disease”.
They haven’t even found a name for it yet, and many of the medications being used are not suited for kid’s use.
This book has been written by a type 2 diabetic who, some 20 years after contracting the disease, has developed at least two of the main complications, severe nerve damage and a muscle wasting disease. But there are many complications with far worse effects than these.
The shock at finding that ten year olds were getting type 2 diabetes because
of obesity has compelled him to write this book in an attempt to wake people up to these complications.

Family stress and resources: potential areas of intervention in children recently diagnosed with diabetes.: An article from: Health and Social Work

From the author: This article examines the relationships among family stress, family capabilities, and the health status of 53 children diagnosed with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus. Assessments were done at an outpatient diabetes clinic of family coping, resources, and stress; disease-related knowledge; metabolic control (Hb|A.sub.1~); and endogenous insulin (C peptide). Results indicated that higher levels of family stress and lower levels of family resources as reported by fathers were significantly associated with poor metabolic control. Multiple regression analyses revealed that levels of family stress and resources were more strongly related to metabolic control than were disease variables such as C peptide levels. Moreover, family stress was directly associated with metabolic control, and family resources showed indirect linkages. Findings suggest that family stress and resources are potential areas for social work intervention in children recently diagnosed with diabetes.

From the author: Diabetes affects many children. Researchers know little about children’s perceptions of what type of support they need at school, which was a focus of this study. Group interviews and surveys examined children’s perceptions of support in caring for their diabetes (type I diabetes) from school nurses, teachers, and friends. Results indicated the children felt supported at school, but improved flexibility by teachers and nurses (eg, let me keep my meter with me always) and individualized care plans may improve their ability to manage their diabetes at school. Participating in after-school activities may be difficult for middle school youth. Children reported they needed additional help and support to cope with hypoglycemic episodes.

Growing Up with Diabetes: What Children Want Their Parents to Know (Juvenile Diabetes Foundation Library)

A chance to step into your child’s shoes. When your child was diagnosed with diabetes your first priority was probably to learn everything you could about diabetes and how to manage it. Whether your child is a youngster or a teenager, you’ve done your best to help with injections, meals and snacks, and the many other elements of a diabetes management program. But through all this, you may be overlooking the importance of your child’s social and emotional development. Children want to be normal, and diabetes makes them “different.” Many well-meaning parents inadvertently focus too much on their child’s diabetes, and not enough on other aspects of their child’s life. This unique book, written by a young woman who was diagnosed with diabetes at age 11, gives you the opportunity to understand and relate to your child’s feelings. Drawing on the author’s own experiences and those of the many children and young adults she’s counseled, this sensitive guide explains:
* How children feel when they’re diagnosed
* Why diabetes is a bigger adjustment for you than for your child
* How to encourage a healthy approach to diabetes
* The importance of diabetes education
* How to make your child’s life as normal as possible
* Dealing with outside forces (school, day care, relatives, etc.)
* Eliminating the power struggle for independence in adolescence
* Books to Fund A Cure * A portion of this book’s proceeds will go to the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation International, a not-for-profit voluntary health agency, whose primary objective is to support and fund research to find the cause, cure, treatment, and prevention of diabetes and its complications. Juvenile Diabetes Foundation Library Health”I am a 21-year-old chiropractic student who has had diabetes for over 10 years,” writes the author, who has been working with children and teenagers with diabetes since she was 15 and founded a camp for young people with diabetes. This slim book is “what children want their parents to know” about dealing with the social and emotional issues of diabetes, a perspective lacking in most books about this condition. For example, “My parents were worried about the long-term impact of diabetes and how it would change my life and my family’s life. I was worried that I wouldn’t [miss] my school field trip.”

McAuliffe teaches parents important concepts like not blaming yourself if your child has diabetes, accepting that your child will have diabetes forever, not transmitting a negative attitude, and letting your child be a “normal” kid. She also teaches strategies for dealing with daily life, such as including siblings in diabetes education and emergency training, educating your child’s teacher and classmates, and giving siblings without diabetes some extra attention. McAuliffe gives no medical advice–plenty of other books do that. She shares from her heart and experience what it was like being a kid with diabetes and how parents can make it easier or more difficult. –Joan Price
