The PCOS* Protection Plan: How to Cut Your Increased Risk of Diabetes, Heart Disease, Obesity, and High Blood Pressure

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2013

        Do you struggle with your weight? Have irregular periods (or none at all)? Get acne? Notice thinning hair? Or do you have to deal with unwanted facial and body hair? If you have any of these problems, the chances are fairly good that you have PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome), along with one in ten women.

        We now know that women with PCOS are more likely to get diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, and obesity and its related health problems; and research is currently linking PCOS to a host of other health complications as well. And while you might see this as a frightening glimpse into the future, at least women with PCOS can look future health risks in the eye and then do something right now to reduce them instead of never knowing what could be around the corner.

        That something is the PCOS Protection Plan, an action plan written by women with PCOS for women with PCOS—to help you take control of your health so that you can significantly reduce the risk of serious health conditions.

 

Obesity and Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (Oxford American Endocrinology Library)

Wednesday, June 19th, 2013

With the advent of the worldwide obesity epidemic, a concurrent rise has occurred in the prevalence of type 2 diabetes mellitus and metabolic syndrome. Type 2 diabetes mellitus is affecting younger individuals-the disease is no longer exclusive to adulthood. Diabetic micro- and macrovascular complications are also occurring at an earlier age, leading to increasing demands and costs on the healthcare system. In addition, the morbidity, disability and premature death caused by diabetic complications create a huge burden to families, employers and society at large. Thankfully, there has been a tremendous growth in new therapeutic classes of medications to help manage type 2 diabetes mellitus. These agents target many of the pathophysiologic defects of the disease with fewer side effects than the older agents. Newer insulin formulations have more predictable kinetics so patients can achieve better glycemic control with less risk of hypoglycemia and weight gain. Insulin delivery devices have also improved to include higher quality insulin pens, finer and shorter pen needles, and more technologically advanced insulin pumps.

As part of the Oxford American Endocrinology Library series, this handbook reviews the epidemiology and pathophysiology of obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus. The content covers micro- and macrovascular diabetic complications, the array of glucose regulating therapies, treatment algorithms targeting the pathophysiologic defects of type 2 diabetes mellitus as well as strategies for macrovascular risk reduction via therapeutic lifestyle change (diet, exercise, smoking cessation), pharmacotherapeutic treatment of dyslipidemia and hypertension, bariatric surgery and subcutaneous insulin infusion therapy, among other topics. Because of the concise yet comprehensive nature of the handbook, this volume is an excellent point-of-care reference for the clinician who regulary treats obese and diabetic patients.

 

Vitamins and Weight Loss: How Vitamins Affect Fat Burning Exercises, Bariatric Surgery, and Obesity Related Diseases (Journal of Personalized and Systems Medicine)

Saturday, June 1st, 2013

As obesity has become a serious health problem globally, more attention is needed about nutritional problems in the overweight and obese population, especially about vitamins and oxidative stress. Scientific studies have found close relationships between vitamins and obesity. For example, childhood obesity is often associated with an increased risk of low vitamin B12 concentration.
The condition of deficiencies in several vitamins is especially serious in those with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and after gastric bypass surgery. Individuals with deficiencies in some vitamins are more difficult to lose fat mass, and burn less fat during fat burning exercises. Low levels of certain vitamins may perturb cellular functions and impair insulin action, glucose metabolism and other metabolic processes.
Weight loss interventions are often associated with reduced intake of micronutrients, such as vitamin B6, calcium and vitamin E. Several vitamins have been found to play important roles in food intake and weight control. Supplementation of these vitamins may be helpful not only for weight loss, but also for the prevention of diabetes and other obesity-related diseases.
Certain diets can improve vitamin status and the whole dietary quality, and help maintain fat-free mass during the weight loss time. The right dosages are necessary after gastric surgeries for obesity, to adjust the reduced serum vitamin levels. Many vitamins are antioxidants. Correct dosages of vitamin supplementation may also help reduce systemic oxidative stress in overweight and obese individuals. Effects and applications of vitamin A, B, C, D, and E supplementation on controlling body weight, cholesterol, and oxidative damages are discussed here.

Excerpts:

“The condition … is especially serious in those with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and after bariatric surgery. Some factors have been identified as contributors to …. These factors include oxidative stress, deficiency of other nutrients, insufficient intake food sources of …, and existence of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease…”

“The status of … may also influence psychological conditions. For example, … have been associated with symptoms of depression in overweight and obese subjects. Supplementation with … has been found to relieve these symptoms.”

“This is shown in … the improvement of the liver function, which indicate the potentials to decrease the risks of cardiovascular and liver diseases in obesity.”

“These two are risk factors for coronary heart disease. Such results suggest that … may be helpful for reduce risk factors for both obesity and coronary heart disease.”

Obesity, Diabetes & How To Eat To Live: Transcending the Dietary Dark Ages, 2nd Ed.

Saturday, May 25th, 2013

This second edition of Obesity, Diabetes & How To Eat To Live: Transcending the Dietary Dark Ages, positions the obesity and diabetes pandemics in the context of a global disintegration of civilization, a dark age. Commercial interests (a.k.a. merchants of death), with ferocity, enact scheme-after-scheme and ploy-after-ploy to keep the population unhealthy.

This has made “obesity” a foremost profit center wherein toxic pills, potions, brutal surgical procedures, and bogus diet plans — touted as solutions for this health crisis — generate billions of dollars, annually, for the merchants of death. Through it all, no one is ever healed and obesity remains a worldwide pandemic.

In fact, health researchers expect this crisis to worsen in many decades to come. No doubt, something is terribly wrong. We are being deceived. Our lives and wealth are being milked for “no good reasons”.

This book describes the pathologies of obesity and diabetes, and the diabolical social and environmental factors that contribute to them. More importantly, this book reveals that Divine Guidance, which represents the incoming civilization, where longevity, good health, and disease-free living are easily attainable — yes, right now!

This Guidance emphatically empowers us — helping us evade the deadly entanglement of the old, corrupted and exhausted institutions of this failed society, while preparing us to participate in the rise of the incoming and Divinely-guided civilization.

Behavioral Approaches to Treating Obesity: Helping Your Patients Make Changes That Last

Friday, April 19th, 2013

As governments and health care systems direct more attention and resources to treating the rising rates of obesity worldwide, one thing has become very clear: obesity is best treated as a chronic condition. The most effective approach to care is often a behavioral one, in which health care providers and patients rely on teamwork, respect, and conversation to motivate lifestyle change. This collaborative model is essential because decisions about care ultimately rest with the patient. Working together, care providers and patients can help patients learn to make healthy choices throughout their lives.

An effective and detailed guide for health care providers, Behavioral Approaches to Treating Obesity embraces this understanding about treating obesity and explains how to help patients direct their own lifestyle change. With this self-directed approach to clinical care, patients assume more responsibility for their treatment plans, whereas care providers learn to take on the role of guide or counselor.

In this book, readers will find strategies for encouraging patients and equipping them for lifestyle change. There is practical advice on many issues and helpful guides for any of a number of difficult scenarios. Some of the features of this guide include:

arranging the physical environment of a clinic to accommodate obese patientsbuilding a program to meet the needs of patients in a chronic-care treatment plancase studies to illuminate key issues in behavior changecharts and tables to help implement behavioral approaches in treatmentstep-by-step instructions on helping patients begin lifestyle changedescriptions of how to design and organize an obesity treatment programuseful methods of building a collaborative health care team

Readers will start at the beginning, learning to understand the problems of obesity and risks it poses to the people who suffer from the condition. Then the methods of treatment for obesity are presented, along with analysis of these methods and their effectiveness. In the end, the authors conclude that a new paradigm of care is needed to successfully treat obesity.

The next section spends some time redefining the roles of health care providers in providing a collaborative care model of behavioral change therapy. The authors describe the new roles for health care providers and how to cope with those changes, how to build their team, how to create a supportive environment, and then how to structure the care process.

The third and final section provides health care providers with the tools they need to introduce behavioral self-care in the clinical environment. This is a step-by-step process, and each step is further explained using case studies from the authors’ experiences.

The book is completed with an extensive resources section and an updated reference list to promote further research.

Oxidative Stress and Inflammatory Mechanisms in Obesity, Diabetes, and the Metabolic Syndrome (Oxidative Stress and Disease)

Thursday, January 24th, 2013

Characterized by obesity, insulin resistance, dyslipidemia, and hypertension, metabolic syndrome is associated with the risks of type 2 diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular disease. Obesity, which increases the incidence of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease and subsequently leads to increased stress and inflammation, appears to play a central role in the progression of the syndrome. Evidence of inflammatory processes in accumulated fat appears to be an early initiator of metabolic syndrome. Likewise, the more active angiotensin system in obesity may contribute to even greater oxidative stress that serves as a key signaling event in vascular remodeling. These factors strengthen obesity’s association with oxidative stress.

Oxidative Stress and Inflammatory Mechanisms in Obesity, Diabetes, and the Metabolic Syndrome is designed to encourage the development of evidence-based nutritional and pharmacological therapies that can attenuate the impact of obesity-induced insulin resistance and ensuing metabolic syndrome. The book offers a deep understanding of the molecular mechanisms that underlie the process. Edited by leading authorities on oxidative stress, the book’s chapters report on cutting-edge research that explores intracellular events mediating or preventing oxidative stress and pro-inflammatory processes in obesity and type 2 diabetes. It also brings together research on the molecular mechanisms inherent in the progression of metabolic stress, includes phenotypic perspectives, and discusses dietary factors, including the role of micronutrients.

The chapter authors, each a leading expert in his or her field, discuss different components of metabolic stress and obesity and their associations with oxidative stress and inflammation. The book fills a unique role as a base of knowledge for researchers seeking to develop nutritional and or pharmacological therapies, as well as clinicians seeking a better understanding of this increasingly common disease process.

The Potbelly Syndrome: How Common Germs Cause Obesity, Diabetes, And Heart Disease

Monday, November 12th, 2012

Potbelly syndrome (PBS) is a metabolic disorder that affects about one-third of the adults in industrialized countries. Its most important symptoms are abdominal obesity, high blood pressure, and type 2 diabetes. Contrary to popular belief,these conditions are caused by chronic infections, not by bad habits. PBS is initiated by a small, long-term excess of the stress hormone cortisol. The extra cortisol stimulates our appetite and slows down our metabolism. It makes fat accumulate in places where it isn’t wanted or needed. Most of th fat settles around our waists, but some of it settles in our liver and muscles. Liver and muscle cells aren’t supposted to store fat, and the fat prevents them from working correctly. As a result, we feel tired and hungry much of the time. As our potbellies grow and our PBS gets worse, our blood pressure, cholesterol, insulin, and blood sugar levels rise. Most of the excess cortisol is produced in response to mild, chronic infections. Some of the germs that cause PBS also produce sores in our arteries. When these sores are large enough, they can block artieris and cause heart attacks. “The Potbelly Syndrome” explains how to diagnose and treat some of the germs that cause PBS and heart disease. If you’ve done everything you were supposed to do and still gained weight, became diabetic, or had a heart attack,or if you are a medical professional who suspects that there are serieous gaps in the current understanding of obesity, disbetes, and heart disease, “The Potbelly Syndrome” will provide you with the answers you need to bring about better health.

The Modern Nutritional Diseases: And How to Prevent Them : Heart Disease, Stroke, Type-2 Diabetes, Obesity, Cancer

Friday, October 19th, 2012

Millions of people have been using the low-fat, low-cholesterol, high-carbohydrate diet that has been promoted for the last half-century in the mass media for prevention of heart disease and stroke. During this same period, the numbers of new cases of heart disease and stroke have not decreased as promised but increased, and type-2 diabetes and obesity, which were uncommon 50 years ago, have grown to become major epidemics.

In this book, heart disease, stroke, type-2 diabetes, obesity, and cancer are termed the modern nutritional diseases because scientific studies and biochemical facts clearly point to the modern American heart-healty diet as a major underlying cause of these diseases. This book describes the changes that have taken place in the American diet over the last 100 years and explains how these changes were accelerated after 1930 by advances in food technology. The book presents biochemical and other scientific evidence to show how these changes are implicated not only in the modern nutritional diseases but also in other growing disease problems such as Alzheimer’s disease, osteoporosis, senile dementia, and depression.

This book shows how micro- and macronutrients relate to health and disease prevention. It also shows how faulty science has influenced national health policies and explains how the reader can sort truth from fiction. The final chapter outlines simple dietary and lifestyle changes that can significantly reduce the risk of the modern nutritional diseases and, at the same time, improve one’s health and sense of well-being.
