News, updates and help from and for the diabetic community.
-----------------------------------------------------------

Readers:

I am feeling great. I hopped on the scale this morning and 
I've now lost 14lbs. in just over 10 weeks. I can't believe 
I lost that much weight from simply not eating fast food. 

I still haven't had fast food in over 5 months and I feel 
great. I eat so much better now and enjoy foods I forgot 
about. Stir Fry is becoming my favorite meal. I make it 
the healthiest way I can and it never lets me down. 

There are so many health ways to improve some of your 
favorite meals. And in my opinion, it makes them so much 
more enjoyable. 

Regards,
Steve

Iron-rich Foods Raise Heart Risks for Diabetics

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Consuming red meat and other 
foods high in "heme" iron, such as chicken liver, clams 
and oysters, appears to increase the risk of heart disease 
in diabetics, researchers report in the journal Diabetes 
Care. 

It might be advisable that "patients with type 2 diabetes 
may limit consumption of heme iron and red meat," lead 
investigator Dr. Lu Qi told Reuters Health. 

Dr. Qi of Harvard School of Public Health, Boston 
and colleagues note that diabetes-related metabolic 
abnormalities may aggravate the adverse effects of excess 
iron on the heart. However, they add, little is known 
about whether iron consumption also affects heart disease 
risk. 

To investigate further, the researchers followed 6,161 
women participating in the Nurses' Health Study, and who 
reported a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes. During follow-up 
from 1980 through 2000, the team documented 550 new cases 
of heart disease. 

After accounting for age and body weight, high intake of 
both heme iron and red meat appeared to increase the risk 
of heart disease. Specifically, women who consumed the 
highest amount of heme iron were 50 percent more likely to 
develop heart disease than those with the lowest intake. 
The risks were greatest in women who were postmenopausal. 

The researchers point out that because of the study's 
design, the findings can't prove that high heme iron intake 
"causes" heart disease, only that it is "associated" with 
the disease. 

Still, they note that cutting back on consumption of heme 
iron-rich foods might be prudent for diabetics.
