I know I haven’t been posting as planned…… the best laid plans, etc. I’m going to try to get back in the habit, at least, of posting things that have caught my eye during the week. And then maybe I’ll start posting personal stories again. You never know!
Drinking Diet Soda Doesn’t Raise Diabetes Risk. I’ve been saying this for years. The conclusion is that most people who drink diet soda are overweight (that’s why they drink diet) and that increases risk for type 2 diabetes. The claims that diet soda makes you fat has always felt like claiming that aspirin causes headaches to me. Not that too much of anything is probably good for you.
Poor Sleep is linked to High Insulin Resistance in Diabetics . Poor sleep is the cause of everything bad lately. As someone with chronic insomnia, this strikes a chord with me. Everything is worse when I’m not sleeping. “In fact, restoring a healthy amount of sleep may be as powerful an intervention as the drugs currently used to treat type 2 diabetes.” Very, very interesting.
