Coronary heart problems and diabetes are not just problems for the elderly

Coronary heart problems and diabetes: The known effects

Diabetes plays a major role in causing coronary heart problems. With this, diabetes patients are more likely to develop coronary heart disease than diabetes-free people. The relationship between diabetes and coronary heart problems is important for all patients. This will enable them to take the most appropriate action in keeping healthy. And just for further illustration, from the various studies, experts have established that established that diabetes causes high levels of glucose in the blood and when this happens, it impacts negatively on the walls of the arteries causing them to develop fatty deposits commonly known as atheroma. If this atheroma is allowed to build up in the coronary arteries (the arteries that supply oxygen-rich blood to your heart) the individual patient affected is likely to develop coronary heart disease which can eventually cause heart attack and angina says doctor Dalal Akoury MD and founder of AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center. Now let us try to understand diabetes better in the context of causing coronary heart disease.

Coronary heart problems and diabetes: Types of diabetes

We have two common types of diabetes namely: Type 1 diabetes and Type 2 diabetes

Type 1 diabetes happens when the body lacks the capacity to produce insulin. This type common with the children and young adults. Type 2 diabetes occurs when your body can’t produce enough insulin or the insulin doesn’t work properly. Type 2 diabetes is more common and tends to develop gradually as people get older usually after the age of 40. This type of diabetes is closely associated with being overweight, being physically inactive and having a family history of diabetes. Like most people in the south Asia origin and the African, the Caribbean are associated with higher rates of diabetes. Nonetheless, when diabetes is present, the most important thing is how to eliminate it and reduce the risk of other complications that come with it. Therefore you can effectively reduce your risk of developing diabetes by controlling your weight and doing regular physical activity.

The great news is that doing these things will also make you less likely to develop other cardiovascular diseases such as coronary heart complications/disease and stroke as well as being great for your general mental and physical well-being. Whenever we mention engagement in physical activities many people do wonder how and whether they will achieve their set objectives. If this describes you then you need not worry for you are not alone. The most important thing to do is to resolve to take the first step of acknowledgment and willingness to lose. When this is done you can now seek for a more professional help from doctor Dalal Akoury MD who will take you through the best and natural weight loses exercises in the most professional way that will leave you much healthier. Remember that by losing weight and being active, you will be succeeding in solving several health complications as already mention.

Type 2 diabetes disease relationship with being overweight: Dealing with obesity to offer solution

There are many risk factors for type 2 diabetes disease some of which may include age, race, pregnancy, stress, certain medications, genetics or family history, high cholesterol and obesity. However, the single best predictor of type 2 diabetes is overweight or obesity. Experts at AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center under the leadership of doctor Dalal Akoury MD are estimating that up to 90% of people living with type 2 diabetes are overweight or have obesity. What that communicates is that people who are overweight or have obesity have added pressure on their body’s ability to use insulin to properly control blood sugar levels, and are therefore more likely to develop diabetes. One study has indicated that the number of diabetes cases among American adults increased by a third during the 1990s, and additional increases are expected. This rapid increase in the occurrence of diabetes is mostly attributed to the growing prevalence of obesity in the United States.

Prevention of diabetes

From an expert point of view, doctor Akoury agrees that type 2 diabetes can easily be prevented. And in fact studies have established that lifestyle changes and small amounts of weight loss in the range of 5-10% can prevent or delay the development of type 2 diabetes among high-risk adults. Lifestyle interventions including diet and moderate to intense physical activity (such as walking for 150 minutes per week) can be very effective in weight loss. Preventing weight gain, increasing activity levels and working toward small amounts of weight loss if you are overweight can have a big impact on the likelihood that you will develop diabetes in the future. Thus far, weight management is the best thing you can do to prevent the development of diabetes says doctor Akoury.

Working remedies if struggling with diabetes

According to doctor Akoury, there are several you can do to have a positive influence on your blood sugar and your overall health. You will need to make the right decisions by choosing foods wisely, exercising regularly, reducing your stress levels, making modest lifestyle changes and using medications to lower blood glucose levels. Type 1 diabetic patients must have insulin exogenously applied to maintain healthy blood glucose levels. Type 2 diabetic patients, however, can use insulin or drugs that sensitize their bodies to insulin, which work quite well in lowering blood glucose levels. Unfortunately, these drugs are not without risk as they, as well as the exogenous application of insulin, can often cause diabetic patients to suffer from low blood glucose levels (hypoglycemia) if taken improperly, which may result in seizures, unconsciousness, or death.

Small amounts of weight loss (losing 10 pounds or more) can decrease the amounts of these medications needed to keep your blood sugar levels within a healthy range by lowering your blood glucose levels, which furthermore reduces the risk of diabetic complications. Ultimately, better nutrition, increased physical activity, and control of blood glucose levels can delay the progression of diabetes and help prevent the complications associated with the disease.

Diabetes treatment using stem cells is vert effective

Diabetes treatment using stem cells: The effectiveness of stem cells

It has been established beyond doubt that most of people struggling with diabetes illness are also or have used drugs before. That is to say that substance abuse increases the risk of contracting this disease in many ways. Because of this, we all have a duty to ensure that diabetes and all other drugs addiction related complications are addressed effectively. That is why in this article, doctor Dalal Akoury MD, President and founder of AWAREMED Health and Wellness Resource Center is going to help us understand how diabetes treatment using stem cells is delivering the much needed relief for many patients today.

When you visits us at the facility, doctor Akoury and her able and experienced team of experts will offer to you new, advanced, patented fetal stem cell transplant-based method for diabetes mellitus which has actually been proved effective in the treatment of both types 1 and 2 diabetes as well as the prevention of diabetes-related complications, which usually affect the eyes, arteries, kidneys and so on. When considering this kind of treatment, it is important to note that alongside the traditional treatment of type 1 diabetes, stem cells are also very essential in:

  • Ending the auto-aggression of cell-mediated immunity factors against β-cells
  • Improving insulin-dependent tissue condition.
  • Preventing diabetes-related complications affecting eyes, kidneys, peripheral nerves, and so on
  • Preventing the destruction of β-cells that are functional at the time of the treatment
  • Restoring the patient’s own β-cells and improving their functional capacity

Diabetes treatment using stem cells: In type 2 treatment, fetal stem cells can help:

  • Decrease the production of glucose and pathologic lipids by liver cells;
  • Improve the condition of arterial walls, which is vital for the prevention of atherosclerosis and complications arising from it;
  • Reduce atherogenic hyperinsulinemia;
  • Reduce the dose of hypoglycemic medications.
  • Restore peripheral tissue sensitivity to insulin;

Diabetes treatment using stem cells: treatment for children

Fetal stem cell therapy is one of the most effective treatments for type 1 diabetes mellitus in children and the only one that can slow down or temporarily terminate autoimmune aggression against pancreatic beta cells.  If treatment is started within 6-8 weeks after onset, it is possible to prolong “honeymoon” period, sometimes for a long period of time. Nonetheless it is worth noting that in children, fetal stem cell therapy is likely to results in:

  • Prevention of serious diabetes-related complication
  • Prevention of blood sugar fluctuations (no hyper- and hypoglycaemia that might cause complications at later stages)
  • Preservation of beta cell production by the pancreas (if treatment is started early after onset)
  • Immune boosting 
  • Easier and better diabetes management
  • Better overall health and general development

Finally doctor Akoury is advising that for better delivery of good result using stem cell therapy, it is worth noting that this therapy is most effective at the early stages of diabetes. That is to say that if you or anyone you know is struggling with this condition, then you need not to wait until it is too late. The time for treatment is now, taking note that the main criterion for positive effects with diabetes is long-term management of the disease and the inhibition or prevention of complications.

Facial Rejuvenation

Adipose Derived Stem Cell Therapy for Facial Rejuvenation

Facial RejuvenationBeauty is in the eye. I’d rather stop it at that rather than completing the common say. Women know this better than men do and this is why they invest so much in their appearance. Their faces ought to be at their best, glistening, moistened and generally healthy. To every woman beauty is an important factor that not only determines how she is perceived but also how she will interact with people herself. When a woman knows that she is beautiful her level of confidence is heightened, she believes in her abilities and will not be deterred by any other factor. Despite our women doing much to enhance their beauty, there is more that they can’t easily handle by themselves and needs medical assistance. There are hormones that are very essential to ensure that women are in good shape and appearance, these hormones has much to do with their weight, the glowing of the skin and their flawlessness. However as women approach 50 years of age a lot will change about them. This is because the production of these hormones will be low or will stop and their input in ensuring that women’s beauty is maintained will no longer be attended to. He names estrogen and progesterone are not new to anybody and their contributions in beauty are known. Today we are looking at another factor that can be utilized so as to help achieve beauty by rejuvenating the face: the stem cells.

Why stem cells for facial rejuvenation?

The face is exposed to all sorts of danger ranging from sunburn to degenerative diseases. As a person is growing old it has always been seen that their faces will tend to lose their lusture and flawlessness, the face will become rough, dried and discolored. This is evidence that some cells are maimed and have malfunctioned or worse still have died. The stem cells’ most popular characteristic is that they have the ability to become any type of cell in the body and so can be used to replace cells that have died or have malfunctioned and this will help restore the face leaving it beautiful and rejuvenated. Therefore ways of supplementing stem cells into the affected tissues can be utilized to ensure that the stem cells are in optimum levels so as to take care of the damaged tissues.

The adult stem cells especially the mesenchymal stem cells are good for this procedure; these stem cells can be collected from the adipose tissues of the patient. When the stem cells are withdrawn from the individual on whom they are used again, it is referred to as autologous stem cell therapy. The best thing with autologous stem cell therapy is that you do not need any donor and secondly the stem cells are from the same individual and so there are no chances of the body rejecting them. There is no risk of any dangerous reaction that may occur when the antibodies begin fighting the stem cells supplemented as foreign bodies. The stem cells are from you and can never be foreign.

Facial rejuvenation with adipose Derived stem cells does not require surgery. The procedure is safe as it avoids any incision in its quest to rejuvenate the face and leave the skin healthy. The stem cell therapy will not only replace the worn out or dead cells on the face just to restore its youthful contours but will also help in restoring the shape of the face. As mentioned earlier, aging interferes or rather degrades the skin quality, exposure to sunlight will also lead to ‘cooking of the face’ a condition known to many as sunburn, with adipose stem cells therapy, the quality of the skin can be restored and is the color irregularities that are caused by exposure to sun and other environmental factors.

facial rejuvenationAnother advantage that a patient can get when she has undergone facial rejuvenation with stem cells therapy is that she will not need some of the frequently used maintenance procedures like the botulinum toxin and cosmetic filler injections. the stem cells ability to rejuvenate the face is owed to the regenerative capacity of the mesenchymal stem cells that divide many times giving rise to highly differentiated cells of different types. Due to their importance in the regenerative medicine, of all the trillion cells in the body, the stem cells have since been regarded as the most important category of cells. They are among the few cells in the body that are specialized and have the potential to become a particular cell type and replace worn and damage cells.

The adipose or fat tissues contain large numbers of the stem cells and several studies have shown that these stem cells can be used to heal degenerative diseases as they can survive when removed from the adipose tissues and planted into affected areas where they will work by either correcting the defects in the cells or replacing the worn out cells all together. Stem cell therapy is a safe and effective approach to facial rejuvenation. When transplanted into the affected areas the adipose Derived stem cells help to restore lost fats, enhancing the volume of the face, and skin elements which would improve both the quality and texture of the skin hence improving health of the skin and beauty.

Finally, the pursuit of beauty has seen many women suffer when they chose to go for some dangerous surgeries; by choosing stem cell therapy you are choosing a safer approach. Dr. Dalal Akoury (MD), founder of the AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center Located at Myrtle Beach, North Caroline is an expert in the treatment of degenerative diseases.

Vinegar the Blood Glucose Controller

Vinegar the Blood Glucose Controller: A Secrecy Weapon in the Kitchen Pharmacy

vinegarMost of the dishes in our fast foods restaurants are often accompanied with containers of vinegar. For a long time I never considered putting it into my plate of fries. After all, why would I, if I had all the spicy Hot and Sweet tomato-chili sauce right there with me? Why would I spoil my otherwise tasty meal with what I consider a predominantly female preference-the acidic stuff: Vinegar? This attitude has since changed!

I have come to appreciate the taste of vinegar. Truly some of our sensual responses depend on the attitudes we have previously formed about them. And if you are among the folks who still share my initial attitude toward vinegar then you need to understand what it brings with regard to diabetic conditions.

What studies have found

Recent studies carried out to assess the effects of vinegar have established that taking a given amount of vinegar dosage before meals have great positive results pertaining to the levels of blood sugar. 2 tablespoon portions which amount to about 30 ml dose of vinegar before taking two meals in a day over a period of four weeks was found to help Type 2 diabetic patients to lose weight while at the same time have their blood sugar levels dropped.

The vinegar portions do this by slowing down the dumping of sugar into the bloodstream after a meal. If you have either diabetes type 1 or type 2 therefore, and you take insulin, a shot of vinegar will thus slow down the absorption of sugar from the carbohydrates long enough to give your insulin time to work. Vinegar generally delays the need of body for insulin. It does not however eliminate that need. It only helps to change the glycemic index of the foods you take. This is to say that the vinegar is not a cute for diabetes, it is just a way of dealing with the sugar levels as a control mechanism. This should help clear the air for the rumors that vinegar is a cure for diabetics.

The substance contains a rich amount of organic acids, soluble fiber which is also referred to as pectin, and acetic acid. All these components aid the slow-down of the emptying of the stomach. They delay the digestion of the carbohydrates. With this delayed process of absorbing food from the large intestines, you are assured of a delayed sugar intake by the bloodstream.

Actual vinegar has not been deprived of any of the above compounds. Though vinegar supplements usually have been pasteurized and contain less compounds in them. The substance is known to stop the digestion of carbohydrates in the stomach to a given percentage.

This makes vinegar very useful to people with type 2 diabetes, whose pancreases apparently cannot release insulin fast enough, though they do release the hormone, to take care of all the carbohydrates digested from the food after you have eaten. This involves a case of higher amounts of sugar than the insulin can handle. Vinegar therefore works side by side with the ‘weak’ insulin to ensure the hormone can take its time in dealing with the blood sugars. The message here is: your body still needs insulin whether or not you are using vinegar.

The previous studies have aided the researchers in hypothesizing that the carbohydrates might eventually ferment in the individual’s small intestines. This in effect will create by-products that send a signal to the liver to initiate a negative response by not making as much cholesterol.

It is based on this ground that a number of practitioners have always thought of vinegar as being able to reduce cholesterol from the body. These researches confirm otherwise though. The vinegar only initiates a process that in turn produces a negative response toward the secretion of cholesterol. As such, the vinegar indirectly discourages the production of cholesterol but does not affect the amounts already in circulation in the body of the individual.


Using two groups of volunteers in a study have indicated no effect of vinegar on the levels of cholesterol in the body. The volunteers subjected to a dosage of vinegar however record no increase in their weight with significant weight losses without additional exercises or dieting though. This helps shade empirical light to the above discussion.

from a vinaigrette on a salad. The Arizona State researchers are considering creating a vinegar supplement, but caution that the vinegar supplements currently on the market do not contain acetic acid, which makes the treatment work to help with weight loss and lower blood sugar levels.

The way to describe how acidic foods affect or alter the glycemic index… is to say it is unexpected. The way vinegar lowers blood sugars is by slowing the absorption of digested sugars from the large intestine. The acid in vinegar is neutralized by bicarbonate in the intestines, and without the bicarbonate, glucose does not pass into the bloodstream quickly. Eating a vinegary pickle, or even taking a little shot glass of vinegar before a meal will reduce post-prandial blood sugar increases.

All that said, this is the summary of how acidic foods work: what happens is acidic foods significantly lower the glycemic index of a carbohydrate food, or a meal, by one-third. The reason lies in how your stomach and digestive system work (see above). Acidic foods slow down the emptying of your stomach. The food slows down your digestion, which slows down how quickly your blood sugar levels rise.
