Top 10 Detox Foods

As spring swings into gear, there's no better time to give your body a healthy, fresh start! Plus, if you're thinking about lowering your weight (and your RealAge) "eating clean" is a great first step. Add these 10 foods to your grocery cart and you'll get three terrific benefits:

1. Lots of super-healthy liquids to flush out the body while pouring in nutrients.

2. Fiber to keep your GI tract fit.

3. Foods that energize cleansing enzymes in the liver, your body's built-in detox center.

The top 10:

  1. Green leafy vegetables Eat them raw, throw them into a broth, add them to juices. Their chlorophyll helps swab out environmental toxins (heavy metals, pesticides) and protects the liver.
  2. Lemons You need to keep the fluids flowing to wash out the body and fresh lemonade is ideal. Its vitamin C, considered the detox vitamin, helps convert toxins into a water-soluble form that's easily flushed away.
  3. Watercress   Put a handful into salads, soups, and sandwiches. The peppery little green leaves have a diuretic effect that helps move things through your system. And cress is rich in minerals too.
  4. Garlic Add it to everything -- salads, sauces, spreads. In addition to the bulb's cardio benefits, it activates liver enzymes that help filter out junk.
  5. Green tea This antioxidant-rich brew is one of the healthiest ways to get more fluids into your system. Bonus: It contains catechins, which speed up liver activity.
  6. Broccoli sprouts Get 'em at your health-food store. They pack 20 to 50 times more cancer-fighting, enzyme-stimulating activity into each bite than the grown-up vegetable.
  7. Sesame seeds  They're credited with protecting liver cells from the damaging effects of alcohol and other chemicals. For a concentrated form, try tahini, the yummy sesame seed paste that's a staple of Asian cooking.
  8. Cabbage There are two main types of detoxifying enzymes in the liver; this potent veggie helps activate both of them. Coleslaw, anyone?
  9. Psyllium A plant that's rich in soluble fiber, like oat bran, but more versatile. It mops up toxins (cholesterol too) and helps clear them out. Stir powdered psyllium into juice to help cleanse your colon, or have psyllium-fortified Bran Buds for breakfast.
  10. Fruits, fruits, fruits  They're full of almost all the good things above: vitamin C, fiber, nutritious fluids, and all kinds of antioxidants. Besides, nothing tastes better than a ripe mango, fresh berries, or a perfect pear.

Diabetes is a set of related diseases in which the body cannot regulate the amount of sugar (glucose) in the blood.
Glucose in the blood gives you energy—the kind you need when you walk briskly, run for a bus, ride your bike, take an aerobics class, and perform your day-to-day chores.
Glucose in the blood is produced by the liver from the foods you eat.
In a healthy person, the blood glucose level is regulated by several hormones, one of which is insulin. Insulin is produced by the pancreas, a small organ near the stomach that also secretes important enzymes that help in the digestion of food.
Insulin allows glucose to move from the blood into liver, muscle, and fat cells, where it is used for fuel.
People with diabetes either do not produce enough insulin (type 1 diabetes) or cannot use insulin properly (type 2 diabetes), or both.
In diabetes, glucose in the blood cannot move into cells, and it stays in the blood. This not only harms the cells that need the glucose for fuel, but also harms certain organs and tissues exposed to the high glucose levels.
Type 1 diabetes: The body stops producing insulin or produces too little insulin to regulate blood glucose level.
Type 1 diabetes comprises about 10% of total cases of diabetes in the United States.
Type 1 diabetes is typically recognized in childhood or adolescence. It used to be known as juvenile-onset diabetes or insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus.
Type 1 diabetes can occur in an older individual due to destruction of pancreas by alcohol, disease, or removal by surgery or progressive failure of pancreatic beta cells, which produce insulin.
People with type 1 diabetes generally require daily insulin treatment to sustain life.
Type 2 diabetes: The pancreas secretes insulin, but the body is partially or completely unable to use the insulin. This is sometimes referred to as insulin resistance. The body tries to overcome this resistance by secreting more and more insulin. People with insulin resistance develop type 2 diabetes when they do not continue to secrete enough insulin to cope with the higher demands.
At least 90% of patients with diabetes have type 2 diabetes.
Type 2 diabetes is typically recognized in adulthood, usually after age 45 years. It used to be called adult-onset diabetes mellitus, or non–insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus. These names are no longer used because type 2 diabetes does occur in younger people, and some people with type 2 diabetes need to use insulin.
Type 2 diabetes is usually controlled with diet, weight loss, exercise, and oral medications. More than half of all people with type 2 diabetes require insulin to control their blood sugar levels at some point in the course of their illness.
Gestational diabetes is a form of diabetes that occurs during the second half of
Although gestational diabetes typically goes away after delivery, women who have gestational diabetes are more likely than other women to develop type 2 diabetes later in life.
Women with gestational diabetes are more likely to have large babies.
Metabolic syndrome (syndrome X) is a set of abnormalities in which insulin-resistant diabetes (type 2) is almost always present and includes hypertension, hyperlipidemia (increased serum lipids, predominant elevation of LDL, decrease in HDL, and elevated triglycerides), central
obesity, and abnormalities in blood clotting and inflammatory responses. A high rate of cardiovascular disease is associated with the metabolic syndrome.
Prediabetes is a common condition related to diabetes. In people with prediabetes, the blood sugar level is higher than normal but not high enough to be considered diabetes.
Prediabetes increases your risk of getting type 2 diabetes and of having
heart disease or a stroke.
Prediabetes can be reversed without insulin or medication by losing a modest amount of weight and increasing your physical activity. This can prevent, or at least delay, onset of type 2 diabetes.
An international expert committee of the
American Diabetes Association recently redefined the criteria for prediabetes, lowering the blood sugar level cut-off point for prediabetes. Approximately 20% more adults are now believed to have this condition and may develop diabetes within 10 years if they do not exercise or maintain a healthy weight.
About 17 million Americans (6.2%) are believed to have diabetes. About one third of those do not know they have it.
About 1 million new cases occur each year, and diabetes is the direct or indirect cause of at least 200,000 deaths each year.
The incidence of diabetes is increasing rapidly. This increase is due to many factors, but the most significant are the increasing incidence of obesity and the prevalence of sedentary lifestyles.
Complications of diabetes
Both forms of diabetes ultimately lead to high blood sugar levels, a condition called hyperglycemia. Over a long period of time, hyperglycemia damages the retina of the eye, the kidneys, the nerves, and the blood vessels.
Damage to the retina from diabetes (diabetic retinopathy) is a leading cause of blindness.
Damage to the kidneys from diabetes (diabetic nephropathy) is a leading cause of kidney failure.
Damage to the nerves from diabetes (diabetic neuropathy) is a leading cause of foot wounds and ulcers, which frequently lead to foot and leg amputations.
Damage to the nerves in the autonomic nervous system can lead to paralysis of the stomach (gastroparesis), chronic
diarrhea, and an inability to control heart rate and blood pressure with posture changes.
Diabetes accelerates atherosclerosis, or the formation of fatty plaques inside the arteries, which can lead to blockages or a clot (thrombus), which can then lead to
heart attack, stroke, and decreased circulation in the arms and legs (peripheral vascular disease).
Diabetes predisposes people to
high blood pressure and high cholesterol and triglyceride levels. These independently and together with hyperglycemia increase the risk of heart disease, kidney disease, and other blood vessel complications.
In the short run, diabetes can contribute to a number of acute (short-lived) medical problems.
Many infections are associated with diabetes, and infections are frequently more dangerous in someone with diabetes because the body's normal ability to fight infections is impaired. To compound the problem, infections may worsen glucose control, which further delays recovery from infection.
Hypoglycemia, or
low blood sugar, occurs from time to time in most people with diabetes. It results from taking too much diabetes medication or insulin (sometimes called insulin reaction), missing a meal, doing more exercise than usual, drinking too much alcohol, or taking certain medications for other conditions. It is very important to recognize hypoglycemia and be prepared to treat it at all times. Headache, feeling dizzy, poor concentration, tremors of hands, and sweating are common symptoms of hypoglycemia. You can faint or have a seizure if blood sugar level gets too low.
Diabetic ketoacidosis is a serious condition in which uncontrolled hyperglycemia (usually due to complete lack of insulin or a relative deficiency of insulin) over time creates a buildup in the blood of acidic waste products called ketones. High levels of ketones can be very harmful. This typically happens to people with type 1 diabetes who do not have good blood glucose control. Diabetic ketoacidosis can be precipitated by infection, stress, trauma, missing medications like insulin, or medical emergencies like stroke and heart attack.
Hyperosmolar hyperglycemic nonketotic syndrome is a serious condition in which the blood sugar level gets very high. The body tries to get rid of the excess blood sugar by eliminating it in the urine. This increases the amount of urine significantly and often leads to dehydration so severe that it can cause seizures, coma, even death. This syndrome typically occurs in people with type 2 diabetes who are not controlling their blood sugar levels or have become dehydrated or have stress, injury, stroke, or medications like steroids.

14 Klinik Kerajaan Dibuka Sehingga 9.30 Malam

PUTRAJAYA 26 Mac – Kementerian Kesihatan hari ini memanjangkan waktu perkhidmatan 14 buah klinik kerajaan sehingga pukul 9.30 malam untuk memudahkan pesakit mendapatkan rawatan selepas waktu pejabat.
Menteri Kesihatan, Datuk Liow Tiong Lai berkata, selaras dengan pelaksanaannya, kerajaan bersetuju meningkatkan bayaran insentif selepas waktu pejabat untuk semua pegawai perubatan klinik-klinik berkenaan kepada RM80 sejam berbanding RM30 sebelum ini.
Buat permulaan, 14 klinik iaitu di Alor Setar, Green Town (Ipoh), Anika (Klang), Selayang Baru, Seremban, Peringgit (Melaka), Mahmoodiah (Johor Bahru), Bandar Maharani (Muar), Kuantan, Kuala Terengganu, Kota Bahru, Kuching, Sandakan dan Putrajaya telah dikenal pasti untuk melaksanakan dasar ini.

Ini bermakna klnik-klinik ini akan beroperasi sehingga 9.30 malam pada Isnin hingga Jumaat dan sehingga 12 tengah hari pada Sabtu,” katanya kepada pemberita di sini hari ini.
Kata beliau, lebih banyak klinik akan dipanjangkan waktu operasi sekiranya 14 buah klinik kesihatan perintis tersebut mendapat kunjungan yang tinggi pada waktu luar pejabat iaitu selepas pukul 5.30 petang.
Tiong Lai berkata, Kementerian Kesihatan memperuntukkan perbelanjaan tambahan sebanyak RM12.3 juta untuk menjayakan projek itu termasuk membayar insentif tambahan kepada pegawai perubatan terbabit.
Pelaksanaan dasar ini dapat mengurangkan beban kerja di unit kecemasan hospital dan membolehkan pegawai perubatan memberi perkhidmatan yang lebih efektif kepada pesakit yang memerlukan rawatan kecemasan.
Selain itu, pegawai yang terlibat akan berasa lebih bermotivasi untuk berkhidmat dan seterusnya memberi perkhidmatan yang berkualiti kepada pesakit dan rakyat,” katanya.
Menurut Tiong Lai, dasar itu bagaimanapun bukan sesuatu yang baru kerana Kementerian Kesihatan sebelum ini telah melaksanakan dasar seumpama itu di unit kemalangan dan kecemasan di 33 hospital kerajaan.
