Sugary- this is the 1 that people with diabetes should stay clear of, this is due to the “glucose getting into your bloodstream fast, this could cause a sudden rise in blood glucose levels”. (Rudy, 1999, Page 24)This is not saying that you cannot eat this kind of food; it just means that you should only eat it in small quantities. Starchy- this is the one that is okay for diabetics to eat “These foods increase the blood glucose even though they are not sweet in taste. The body digests them and breaks them down into glucose (sugar).
Unit 21 Nutrition for Health & Social Care Task 3 P3 This is a report on the wide range of possible influences on dietary intake and nutritional health ranging from health conditions which dictate what a person can and can’t eat to lifestyle. Medical Disorders There are lots of medical disorders that dictate what we eat, such as : • Non-insulin Dependent Diabetes (Type 2 Diabetes) is not as severe as Insulin Dependent Diabetes (Type 1 Diabetes) as it can be controlled by diet alone. It’s very important that they follow a strict healthy diet to avoid the condition worsening which can lead to all sorts of problems such as blindness, kidney failure, gangrene and even amputation of limbs. • Coeliac Disease is a condition when someone is intolerant to the protein gluten so they must avoid all foods containing wheat, rye and barley. Failure to do so results in their immune system producing antibodies which attacks the lining of their bowel causing them to have abdominal pains, constipation/diarrhoea, bloating, difficulty in gaining weight in childhood or maintaining weight in adulthood and anaemia.
This occurs when there is a deficiency of the hormone called insulin, or when body tissues are resistant to the actions of insulin. Insulin is normally released from the pancreas in response to rising glucose levels in the blood. It travels through the blood system with the glucose and enables the glucose to enter the body’s cells thus providing the cell, organs and body with the energy they need to function. In a diabetic person, depending on the type of diabetes, one or a combination of the above processes does not occur resulting in a buildup of glucose in the blood (National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases 2014). 6.
According to Marcela and an article from Cindy Cleary and Jo DelAmor, calcium in milk cannot be absorbed in our bodies because there is not a sufficient amount of magnesium. In order to absorb 1500mg of calcium, you would have to consume 750mg of magnesium; milk contains 300mg of calcium and 27mg of magnesium, you would need 123mg more of magnesium in order for the calcium in milk to absorb to its full potential. As a result, calcium from milk is deposited into soft tissue rather than bones (Cleary; DelAmor). The lack of absorption leads to other harmful problems such as kidney stones, arthritis, and gout. Milk also goes through a process called pasteurization, its intentions are to kill the bad bacteria, but it also strips away enzymes and nutrients that help digest the milk.
Running head: A Patient Conversation Cholesterol: A Patient Conversation SC121-04 Explaining Cholesterol to a Patient Keeping an eye on your cholesterol is very important to your overall health and life. If you have high cholesterol it could put you at risk for many health concerns such as heart attack and stroke. High cholesterol allows fatty deposits to develop in your blood vessels which slow the flow of blood in your arteries ("High cholesterol Definition - Diseases and Conditions - Mayo Clinic," 2014). Although high cholesterol can be genetic, most of the time it is a result of the way you live and things you eat. Eating healthy and getting regular exercise can go a long way to staying healthy and sometimes medication can help reduce cholesterol.
If the body loses its ability to maintain homeostasis then imbalances occur which could cause diseases or disorders. Homeostasis imbalance due to diabetes occurs when the pancreas doesn’t produce enough insulin or it creates too much for the
Cigarette smoking increases the risk of heart attack so Eric should talk to his doctor about a program to help him with smoking cessation Also mentioned Eric eats on the run a lot, He needs to make sure he is eating healthy foods to ensure good blood and cholesterol levels. It's never too early to make healthy lifestyle changes, such as quitting smoking, eating healthy foods and becoming more physically active. These are primary lines of defense against coronary artery disease and its complications, including heart attack and
Diabetes Australia found that approximately every day 280 Australians develop the disease diabetes. Diabetes is a long lasting condition which usually goes over a persons lifespan. It is caused when a persons body does not convert glucose otherwise known as sugar into energy. This conversion only occurs when the body produces a chemical called insulin. Insulin or not enough insulin is produced so when high sugar foods are consumed the body cannot convert it into energy therefore resulting in high blood sugar levels.
Diabetes type2 Definition Diabetes type2 is defined as insulin resistance and hyperglycemia. When your body cannot use insulin properly and effectively, the insulin can’t convert the sugar that stays in the veins to the cells. Over time high blood sugar can damage the veins. When you eat, your body absorbs all of the nutrients from foods. Many nutrients like Carbohydrates will convert to the glucose and go right into your blood stream.
When food is eaten the body breaks down all the starches and sugars into glucose, which essentially fuels the cells in the body. Insulin carries the sugar from the blood into the cells. Glucose builds up in the blood instead of moving into the cells, and this leads to diabetes complications. The buildup of Glucose in the blood also can lead to serious problems with the eyes, heart, nerves, kidneys, and gums and teeth. The risk for being diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes is higher for people who are older, obese, have family history of the disease and who do not exercise.
