Diabetes is the poster child for a 'multi-factorial' health problem



   * NAP will soon introduce a Salacia based supplement that would be very helpful for adult diabetes.
   * Quercetin
   * Northern Beans and String Beans
   * Lipoic acid
   * Fenugreeek Seed
   * Daily exercise

Thanks, Dr. D

I increased my Quercetin yesterday as per the Diabetes book.   I also take alpha lipoic acid.  Is that the same as lipoic acid?  Fenugreek is another capasule in my list of items I take each day.  I haven't done well with those beans even though I really do like them, so I guess they'll become a much larger piece of my diet.  I do try to get some additional walking in every day although maybe only a few minutes depending on the foot pain (vasculitis).  I also saw that stinging nettle was good if you have more severe diabetic complications.  I use it daily to help with that terrible cat allergy I'm fighting.

Thanks for all the good help.  I'll be looking for that new NAP product, too.


The first step toward success is taken when you refuse to be a captive of the environment in which you first find yourself. Good health to you & yours.

Just a reminder, servings = 1-3/week. Every other day is about max for us O'sies, although you could certainly try more and see how you feel........

I love cooked beans and went from several times a month down to almost zero partially because of the guidelines (even thought we rarely ate beans more than three or four times a week during the winter) and because a few beans that I used often were relegated to the avoid pile.  So, I guess I went on a pout and just didn't cook them up anymore.

Well, tonight we are having northern bean soup with soup bones, carrots, onons, turnip slices and greens, and a little leftover rice.  It is beginning to smell really good in the kitchen.  We've had a very cool summer with temperatures rarely going above average.  Today it has been in the 50's and a great day to make a bean soup.  Guess I'm over my pout.

Thanks to everybody for all your help.  I'm feeling better about the future!
