  • - Lev godt med type 2-diabetes
    af Lise Penter Madsen
    97,95 kr.

    At få diagnosen type 2-diabetes er ensbetydende med at have fået en sygdom, som man skal lære at leve med resten af sit liv. Type 2-diabetes er en krævende sygdom, fordi man er sin egen vigtigste behandler. I denne bog går vi skridt for skridt igennem, hvad det indebærer at have type 2-diabetes. Desuden fortæller fem personer, der lever med sygdommen, om hvordan de har håndteret sygdommen og de udfordringer, den har medført. Gennem deres fortællinger kan man blive inspireret til, hvordan man selv kan og vil tackle sygdommen, så psyke og krop er i balance. Type 2-diabetes er en kronisk lidelse, som man skal forholde sig til hver dag. Man skal måle sit blodsukker, tage medicin, man skal tænke over, hvad man spiser, og man skal motionere og holde op med at ryge. De betyder for de fleste, at man skal ændre sin dagligdag og sin livsstil. Det kan være svært og overvældende at få diagnosen type 2 diabetes. Det tager tid og energi at bearbejde de mange følelser og indarbejde nye vaner. Ingen påstår, at det ikke er en kamp at nå til accepten, men al erfaring viser, at når man accepterer og får etableret sin type 2-diabetes som en følgesvend, der naturligt skal tages hånd om resten af livet, så får man mere overskud. Denne bog hjælper dig på vej.Bogen er skrevet af videnskabsjournalist Lise Penter Madsen og er udgivet i et samarbejde mellem Steno Diabetes Center Copenhagen og Strandberg Publishing.

    Ny bagebog er fyldt med alle de elskede klassikere – men ikke hvidt sukker.Søde favoritter er noget så sjældent som en bagebog uden tilsat sukker. Den er skrevet til alle, der af den ene eller anden grund gerne vil undgå sukkeret og holde igen med kalorierne, men som stadig en gang imellem har lyst til at servere og spise en skøn kage.Bag bogen står Iben Devantie, kendt fra Den store bagedyst. Hun fik i 2019 konstateret diabetes, og det satte hende i gang med at udvikle opskrifter, hvor man ikke bruger almindeligt hvidt raffineret sukker. "Jeg er ikke holdt op med at spise kager og søde sager, efter at jeg fik konstateret diabetes, men alt med måde," fortæller Iben. "Jeg begyndte at erstatte almindeligt hvidt sukker med sukrin, hvor jeg kunne, og jeg fandt ud af, at jeg sagtens kunne fremtrylle mine favoritter alligevel. Derefter gik der sport i at prøve en masse gode kageklassikere af." Bogen indeholder 45 opskrifter på alt fra cookies, brunchboller og gulerodskage til pandekager, fastelavnsboller, chokolademousse og othellolagkage. I stedet for sukker indeholder opskrifterne sukrin, der er et naturligt sødemiddel, som har den effekt, at det udskilles i kroppen og går ikke i cellerne. Dermed påvirker det ikke blodsukkeret. Der er heller ikke kalorier i sukrin. Iben understreger, at bogen ikke kun er for diabetikere. Eller folk, der vil tabe sig, for som i alle andre kager er der kalorier i disse. Men for alle, der gerne vil undgå det hvide sukker og skære ned på kalorierne, er dette bagebogen.

    Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease in which the body's immune system attacks and destroys cells in the pancreas, which are responsible for producing insulin in the body. It causes an absolute destruction of insulin-producing beta cells that leads to insulin deficiency. Some symptoms of type 1 diabetes are extreme hunger, increased thirst, frequent urination, tiredness, etc. Urine test can be done to find out the presence of a byproduct, where fat tissue and muscle are used for generating energy, as body does not have sufficient insulin for utilizing glucose. Tests can also be run to check for autoantibodies related with type 1 diabetes. The main treatment for this disease involves the administration of insulin through daily injections or an insulin pump. Some other treatments for type 1 diabetes are frequent monitoring of blood sugar levels and carbohydrate counting. This book outlines the etiology and treatment of type 1 diabetes in detail. It consists of contributions made by international experts. This book is a complete source of knowledge on the present status of this important disease.

    Diabetes is a group of metabolic diseases caused by chronic high glucose levels in the blood. In this disease, beta cells (β cells) of the pancreas lose their ability to produce adequate insulin, or there is ineffective utilization of insulin by cells in the body. Type 1 diabetes (T1D) and type 2 diabetes (T2D) are the two prevalent types of diabetes. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disorder in which the immune system attacks and damages the insulin producing beta cells. In type 2 diabetes the body becomes insulin resistant and there is an accumulation of sugar. Insulin resistance that is a result of insulin signaling inhibition leads to a series of immune responses that intensify the inflammatory state, leading to the condition of hyperglycemia. This book includes some of the vital pieces of work being conducted across the world, on various topics related to diabetes and immunology. Its extensive content provides the readers with a thorough understanding of the subject. This book will prove to be immensely beneficial to students and researchers in this field.

    Diabetes refers to a type of metabolic disorder characterized by a persistently high blood sugar level. It occurs as a result of inflammation in an intricate immunological process. Insulin resistance is caused by inhibition of insulin signaling which triggers a sequence of immune responses that aggravate the inflammatory state and leads to hyperglycemia. The common symptoms of diabetes are increased appetite, frequent urination and increased thirst. It is classified into three types, namely, gestational diabetes, type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes. The diagnosis of diabetes can be done through blood tests to measure the amount of glucose level in the blood. Diabetes management focuses on maintaining blood sugar levels as close to normal, while avoiding hypoglycemia. This can be usually achieved through weight loss, dietary changes, usage of appropriate medications and exercise. This book is compiled in such a manner, that it will provide in-depth knowledge about the molecular, cellular and clinical immunology of diabetes. Its extensive content provides the readers with a thorough understanding of the condition.

    A disease that occurs due to high blood sugar levels is called diabetes. There are three major types of diabetes, namely, type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, and gestational diabetes. Of these, the most prominent type of diabetes is the type 2 diabetes. In type 2 diabetes, the pancreas produces insulin but the body is not able to use the insulin, the way it should be used. This long-term condition causes high level of sugar circulating in the bloodstream that results in circulatory, nervous, and immune system disorders. The symptoms of type 2 diabetes are increased thirst, frequent urination, increased hunger, fatigue, blurred vision, frequent infections, etc. It is caused due to two interrelated problems. The first problem is insulin resistance developed by cells in muscle, fat and the liver which leads to lower amount of sugar. The second issue is the inability of the pancreas to produce enough insulin to manage blood sugar levels. Certain lifestyle changes such as eating healthy foods, losing weight, and avoiding inactivity for long periods are some measures to prevent or manage the disease. This book explores all the important aspects of type 2 diabetes and its medical management in the present day scenario. It will serve as a reference to a broad spectrum of readers.

    Gestational diabetes is one of the types of diabetes diagnosed during pregnancy for the first time. It affects the cell's capability to use sugar, resulting in high blood sugar levels, which can affect the pregnancy and health of the baby. The most common cause of gestational diabetes is a change in hormone levels that makes it difficult for the body to efficiently process blood sugar. There are several complications associated with gestational diabetes, such as increased risk of breathing difficulties in infants, hypoglycemia, excessive birth weight, preterm birth and obesity. In certain cases it may also result in still birth. Diagnosis involves a screening test between 24 and 28 weeks of pregnancy. Initial glucose challenge test and follow-up glucose tolerance testing are routine screening procedures for gestational diabetes. Treatment and management for gestational diabetes includes medication, blood sugar monitoring and certain lifestyle changes. Repeated ultrasounds for examining the growth and development of an infant become paramount in the course of treatment. This book provides comprehensive insights into gestational diabetes. It presents researches and studies on the nutritional aspects of this disease as well as its complications and treatment. This book will serve as a valuable source of reference for graduate and post graduate students.
