Diabetes (Definition)

Diabetes is a disease of increased blood glucose levels. Glucose is a type of sugar that comes from the intake of food.

Increased levels of glucose in the body causes severe damage to the ...Read more

Is it good for a person with diabetes (type 2) to drink diet soda to keep hydrated?

Is it good for a person with diabetes (type 2) to drink diet soda to keep hydrated?

Not really: Diet sodas do not help with weight loss, and usually have a heavy load of phosphoric acid. The artificial sweeteners paradoxically increase the need for sweets elsewhere in the diet. You can have 1 or 2 12oz servings without much downside. More than that is excessive. The best hydrating agent is simply water. It is less expensive, healthier, and has no side effects. Water is a better than soda. ...Read more

worried 20 yr old, healthy weight/diet, exercise. 3 hours sleep for past year bad sleep 3yrs. can lack of sleep cause diabetes type 2?

Not by itself: People perform at their best when they get enough restful sleep, a balanced nutrition, exercise and work in a familiar environment.
