No matter what leaflet or brochure one reads on the subject of either diabetes, heart disease or weight control, the authors always recommend to choose whole-grain sources of carbohydrate.

How do Statin Drugs (Lipitor, Crestor.. Etc) lower your bad LDL Cholesterol ?
ABSTRACT of article: This type of medication is now very widely prescribed in the treatment of existing CHD, worldwide. They are also prescribed to prevent CHD from developing in patients who may be at risk. Some people are, for all sorts of reasons, against taking any kind of drugs. In the case of statin drugs, they may be saying "no" to halting the building of plaque in their arteries. This article explains briefly what statin drugs like Lipitor and Crestor do, how they do it and finally presents the benefits in terms of influence on cardiac event risk. In some instances, statins have been reported to reverse - or partially cure - heart disease.

What is Diabetes? How will it affect you? An Overview of the important facts every patient should know.
Caring for diabetes is a constant preoccupation for patients who have been diagnosed with one form of the disease. However, the results they achieve can vary wildly. One morning, blood glucose measures at 115 mg/dL (6.4 mmol/L), and the next morning it is at 203 mg/dL (11.3 mmol/L) ! This can be frustrating to either old-time or newly diagnosed diabetics. Some professional athletes have achieved great success despite the fact that they are diabetics. They, of course, have mastered their condition. In order to do so, they have come to know the very nature of their ailment. They have a good knowledge of just what is diabetes. Having figured out how diabetes works (its physiology), they can now master it with great success. Actually, their performance is superior to that of the general population. A good knowledge of the basics of diabetes will go a long way in improving a diabetic's ability to manage the disease.

Is There a Best, a Most Efficient Way for You to Cook Successfully for Weight Loss?
hm_meddigest_journals_on_nutrition-_heart_and_diabetes-_cholesterol_and_healthy_weight014064.jpg
There are basically 3 main types of weight loss programs known to be efficient. Their efficacy will vary according to your metabolism. One method may work wonders for you and not much for your neighbor ...and vice-versa. The truth is: we are all are unique biological specimens.

If you are a strong responder to carbohydrate intake, chances are the low-carbohydrate weight loss programs and diets will work reasonably well for you. On the other hand, if you are a strong responder to fat intake, you will have more success with a low-fat program. What if your metabolism responds to both types of intake?
