Red Wine Pill to Cure Everything from Obesity to Diabetes

In medical achievements, this is considered a big one. Imagine a pill that will treat diabetes, obesity, heart disease, and cancer. And the good news is that it could be available in just a few short years. This will help everyone including the couch potatoes for we can then eat as much as we like without gaining any pounds.

In addition to the above, we will receive the benefits of exercise without leaving the TV room. We don’t really care if we live to a hundred as long as we can remain healthy. This they say can happen because polyphenols, which are antioxidants in red wine, may help protect the lining of the heart’s blood vessels.

The family of drugs that is now being tested is based on resveratrol, the substance hailed as a miracle ingredient. It has been credited with holding back the development of heart disease and curing cancer. It helps prevent blood clots, damage to blood vessels and reduces bad cholesterol.

This is how it works. The drugs would turn on a gene called SIRT1 which is key to energy and long life. This is so potent that it would be equals to the health benefits of drinking 8,000 bottles of wine. You see, the mice given the drugs called SRT1720, did not gain any weight despite being fed fats. The test showed they were protected from diabetes and had improved stamina. The U.S. government’s health research arm has confirmed the drug’s promise.

3. Weight Loss Procedure Curing Diabetes?

The greatest threat to world health is the diabetes epidemic. By 2025, it is expected to grow by leaps and bounds to 380 million. But have no fear for a cure may be closer than we think. In fact there is a type of surgery that is sending diabetes packing to leave for good.

You may have heard of this bariatric surgery but there are some changes so let us examine one live example in the person of Tom Haynes who was once Donald Trump’s personal chef. He has also made meals for former New York Mayor Rudi Giuliani.

Tom Haynes has great achievements like working with tens of thousands of students at the Institute of Culinary Education, making from pastas to pastries but what he is most proud of is what he has done for his health. He was obese at 285 pounds and has been a diabetic for ten years, stabbing himself with insulin 13 times a day.

Now due to a side effect of bariatric surgery he is medication and insulin-free. Dr. Rubino, leader of studies on gastric bypass surgery, said that he noticed the patients going on diabetes remission within days or weeks. So now not only do they do the bariatric surgery solely on morbidly obese people but also on those with BMI as low as 26.

Tom Haynes now feels cured. It has totally changed his life. And that is something, especially Dr. Rubino thinks the surgery is cost effective. Why? It is because the cost for a one-time bariatric surgery is reduced by the lower cost among the diabetes-related expenses.

7. Question: "I started to exercise. Do I need more carbs even though my blood sugar is within target level?"

Answer: Congratulations for starting to exercise. No, there is no need to change the consumption of carbs but work with your health care team to be safe. This is what one expert said. She also said that you know the drill: the exercise is okayed by your doctor and that it is tailored to your individual needs. American Diabetes Association has recommended 150 minutes each week of activity and to include some weight resistance exercise.

Here’s what to do:

1. Ask your doctor about an exercise plan. He may want to check your heart, eyes and feet first if you have been inactive for quite awhile. He may also suggest the right amount of muscle-strengthening exercise and aerobic.

2. Talk to the doctor also about the blood sugar level that is right for you before you start to exercise.

3. Ask your doctor about the best time for you to exercise in order to coordinate it with your medication and meal schedules.

4. Check your blood sugar level before, during and after exercise particularly if you take blood sugar lowering medications or insulin. Watch for warning signs like feeling weak, shaky, tired, hungry, confused, anxious, lightheaded or irritable.

4. Be prepared with a small snack or glucose pill in case your blood sugar gets too low. Wear a diabetes bracelet while exercising.

5. Drink plenty of water while exercising.

6. Adjust the treatment plan as needed. If you take insulin, adjust the dose before exercising or wait a few hours after the injection before you exercise. When your exercise routine has increased, the doctor may make some adjustment to your treatment plan.
