Diabetic Living Everyday Cooking VOL 1 (VOLUME 1)

Friday, April 26th, 2013

Letter from the editor, Kelly Rawlings: Getting a nutritious meal on the table for our family is a health-smart daily goal for many of us. When you or someone in your family has diabetes, healthful eating has to be a priority. But it’s not always easy. I know because I have had type 1 diabetes since I was 4.

Like many couples, my husband, Mark, and I both work. So preparing satisfying fare that is nutritionally sound and workable with my diabetes meal plan is often a struggle. It becomes even more challenging when you add a 10-year-old boy to the mix! My son, Grant, likes to help in the kitchen. And he has learned to like foods that many kids wouldn’t, such as polenta, salmon, and Brussels sprouts. OK, maybe Brussels sprouts not so much. But our rule is for him to try one bite of any new recipe, which exposes tastes using the familiar and perhaps not-so-familiar ingredients in these recipes. Each one is approved by our Test Kitchen as delicious, nutritious, and easy to make.

Sunday evening is my big night to cook several dinners for the week. That’s why I love the make-ahead directions we’ve included with many of the recipes. You can have the dishes in the “Family-Pleasing Meals” chapter on the table in 30 minutes or less. We’ve also included a few slow-cooker recipes. A cookbook that keeps your meal plan goals in line and includes nutrition information is a real help in managing your diabetes. I look forward to serving recipes from this cookbook and hope you and your family will enjoy them too!

    A Life of Control: Stories of Living with Diabetes

    Sunday, January 27th, 2013

    Diabetes happens in a life that already has a story. This book, composed of nearly forty personal narratives, based on taped interviews, about the lives of actual patients with diabetes, draws upon the collective experience of an endocrinologist and two nurse practitioners who worked together for twenty-five years.

    The people who describe their experiences with diabetes range from teenagers to physicians, immigrants, athletes, pregnant women, accountants, a prisoner, and a dairy farmer. They speak of the variety of ways they handle monitoring, diet, insurance coverage, sports, and fashion. Some talk of how they manage to drive trucks for a living or, for recreation, fly airplanes or go spelunking. Many speak frankly of their anxieties and frustrations.

    The authors acknowledge that both the patient and clinician have a story about their relationship, and describe the richness and tension in their interaction. Families, too, are sources of both support and conflict. These relationships are acknowledged in the organization of the book, which is divided into sections defined by the main elements of diabetes control: patient self-determination, the role of the family, the social situation, and the patient-clinician encounter.

    The book provides a wealth of information about diabetes, including material on prevention, complications, and new technology, as well as a superb glossary, but it is not intended as a textbook on diabetes or as a self-care manual for patients. Rather the book provides a textured account of the health professional’s view of diabetes control and the perspective of the patient whose life is complicated by diabetes.

    BALANCED NATURE Naturally Curing Diabetes, Anxiety and Living Longer

    Monday, December 24th, 2012

    It’s only natural

    Big Pharma doesn’t want you cured, they want you dependant. The same goes for many doctors and health care providers. You’re no good to them if you’re not buying their product. It’s only natural – it’s business.

    Q: What do type 2 diabetes, heart disease, obesity, alcoholism, depression and many other psychiatric disorders have in common?

    A: They’re the so called diseases of affluence.

    These diseases are the result of the increasing wealth of our society. But yet it’s the middle and working classes that are disproportionately affected.
    The cures are simple. Go back to the way of our ancestors. Eat what’s needed when it’s needed and get enough exercise. No fancy pills and supplements just do what comes natural.

    Rethinking Aging: Growing Old and Living Well in an Overtreated Society

    Wednesday, December 12th, 2012

    For those fortunate enough to reside in the developed world, death before reaching a ripe old age is a tragedy, not a fact of life. Although aging and dying are not diseases, older Americans are subject to the most egregious marketing in the name of “successful aging” and “long life,” as if both are commodities. In Rethinking Aging, Nortin M. Hadler examines health-care choices offered to aging Americans and argues that too often the choices serve to profit the provider rather than benefit the recipient, leading to the medicalization of everyday ailments and blatant overtreatment. Rethinking Aging forewarns and arms readers with evidence-based insights that facilitate health-promoting decision making.

    Over the past decade, Hadler has established himself as a leading voice among those who approach the menu of health-care choices with informed skepticism. Only the rigorous demonstration of efficacy is adequate reassurance of a treatment’s value, he argues; if it cannot be shown that a particular treatment will benefit the patient, one should proceed with caution. In Rethinking Aging, Hadler offers a doctor’s perspective on the medical literature as well as his long clinical experience to help readers assess their health-care options and make informed medical choices in the last decades of life. The challenges of aging and dying, he eloquently assures us, can be faced with sophistication, confidence, and grace.

    Saturday, November 17th, 2012

    With dietary and lifestyle choices fueling a rise in type 2 diabetes, coping with this treatable disease has become a priority for millions. Unfortunately, although type 2 diabetes can be treated, the specifics of how to effectively combine insulin, diet and exercise are often difficult to master. Gloria Loring – a regular contributor to the Diabetes Wellness Letter as well as a famous singer, songwriter and star of the TV drama Days of Our Lives, and mother of a diabetic child – co-authors with Dr. Timothy Gray to clearly explain how to identify and live with type 2 diabetes.

    Cheating Destiny: Living With Diabetes, America’s Biggest Epidemic

    Monday, October 22nd, 2012

    We are a diabetic nation: according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one in three Americans born in this century will become diabetic. James Hirsch’s myth-shattering blend of history, reportage, advocacy, and memoir will speak for, and to, the 20 million Americans who live with this disease. Cheating Destiny offers revealing views of the diabetic subculture, the urge toward secrecy that many diabetics feel, the glycemic rollercoaster they ride constantly, and the remarkable perseverance—even heroism—required for survival.

    Hirsch is uniquely qualified to write this book. An award-winning journalist and best-selling author, he has lived with type 1 diabetes for twenty-five years. His brother Irl, also a diabetic, is one of the country’s leading diabetologists. Most poignantly, he knows firsthand the toll diabetes can take on parents: his three-year-old son was diagnosed with the disease while Hirsch was writing this book.

    Hirsch draws on all this expertise to craft an incisive, surprising portrayal of the fascinating science behind the disease and the skyrocketing impact of diabetes on our economy and society. Most striking is his candid, authoritative writing about the psychological and emotional hurdles that diabetics confront every day. Anyone who lives with diabetes—or loves a diabetic—will find here an empowering voice of empathy.
