Metabolic syndrome (also called syndrome X) is the name for a group of risk factors related to heart disease and type 2 diabetes. Many of the risk factors are directly related to diet. The metabolic syndrome has been defined as the presence of any three of the following five risk factors:

  • Central obesity (excess weight around the stomach). The recommended limit in waist circumference is different for people depending on their ethnicity. For Caucasian men, a waist circumference over 102 cm [40 in] and over 88 cm [35 in] for Caucasian women presents a risk to health

  • High triglycerides (fats) in the blood

  • Low levels of healthy cholesterol (HDL) in the blood

  • High blood pressure

  • Insulin resistance.

Metabolic syndrome may be partly genetic, but many symptoms also relate to lifestyle factors like diet and exercise. For some people, their bodies show signs of metabolic syndrome during adolescence. For others it doesn’t appear until middle or later life. Obesity, especially abdominal obesity seems to be an early sign, followed by insulin resistance.

A person with metabolic syndrome is at much greater risk of developing type 2 diabetes, heart disease and stroke. Lifestyle changes such as those outlined in the Read more

Pediatric  Nutrition

Kids with pre-diabetes, type 2 or 1 diabetes benefit from a healthy diet the same as everyone else. Although kids with diabetes don't have to follow a special diabetes diet, they may need to pay more attention to when they eat and how much is on their plates. Meal planning goals for kids with diabetes often are the same as those for other kids: They need foods that help them have overall good health, normal growth, and a healthy weightBut kids with diabetes also have to balance their intake of carbohydrates (carbs) with their insulin and activity levels to keep blood sugar levels under control. And they should eat foods that help keep blood levels of lipids (fats like cholesterol and triglycerides) in a healthy range. Doing so can help prevent some of the long-term health problems of diabetes... Read more

Top 10 Healthy Snacks

People with diabetes on certain types of tablets or insulin may require one snack between each meal and for supper. However, most people aiming to control their body weight are advised not to have snacks between meals. For specific advice, discuss this with your doctor, dietitian or Credentialled Diabetes Educator or you can drop me a message on here. There are lots of healthy choices that can be used as snack foods. Select fruit that is in season (e.g. an apple, a banana, a peach, a pear,  apricots, grapes, strawberries or a slice of rockmelon or watermelon).

Other healthy suggestions are listed below or in our recipe blog area, that can benefit not only diabetics, but all members of the family:

3 Egg Prosciutto Scroll & Caviar

Hard-boiled eggs are a super healthy snack for people with diabetes. Their protein content really makes them shine. One large hard-boiled egg provides 6 grams of protein, which is helpful for diabetes because it keeps your blood sugar from rising too high after you eat them. In one study, 65 people with type 2 diabetes ate two eggs daily for 12 weeks. By the end of the study, they experienced significant reductions in their fasting blood sugar levels. They also had lower hemoglobin A1c, which is a measure of long-term blood sugar control. Eggs are known to promote fullness, an important aspect of managing type 2 diabetes. This disease is associated with a greater likelihood of becoming overweight and developing heart disease.

You can enjoy a hard-boiled egg or two for a snack on their own, wrapped in turkey or prosciutto and garnish them with a healthy topping like caviar or guacamole. See more here

Roasted Beet & Carrot Salad

Beets are a great nutrient-rich vegetable with low calorie content despite their sweet taste. They are an excellent source of folate, a B vitamin that is heart-healthy and, because of its role in producing and repairing DNA, seems to be part of our anti-cancer arsenal, too. The red color comes from compounds called betalains, which laboratory studies suggest could be both heart- and cancer-protective. In animal studies, beets seem to inhibit carcinogen formation and increase production of immune cells and body enzymes that help fight cancer development. Nutritionally, beets are a diabetic-friendly food choice. One beet (82g) provides only 35 calories, zero fat and 8 grams of carbohydrate, along with 2 grams of dietary fiber and 6 grams of sugars... See more here
