Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest I love to write this column with a little bit of history, food, stats and a twist of humor. November is Diabetes month, so it’s going to be a little more serious. There are 30.2 million adults in the United States with diabetes. What’s shocking is that 23% of those 30 million don’t know they have it. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) ranks diabetes as the 7th leading cause of death in the county. Diabetes can lead to leg and foot amputations, blindness, kidney and heart disease. It’s important to stay on top of this chronic disease. Be sure your Doc includes a fasting glucose and A1C (which is a 3-month average of how well your glucose levels are controlled) with your next routine bloodwork.As a student dietitian, I learned all about the diabetic diet, complications, meds and ways to stay in control. Today, 30 years later there is a better understanding of this disease’s progression. Many improvements in diabetes detection and advances in controlling diabetes through meds and devices have been made. The diet for diabetes has also changed from counting exchanges to counting carbs. The constant has been exercise and a diet low in fat and moderate salt to help prevent all those ugly complications.The CDC states one of every 10 Americans has diabetes but if current trends continue by 2050 it will rise to 1 out of every 3. Wow! The reason being the increase in the aging population, increase in obesity along with improved testing methods are part of this scary climb in numbers. What can we do? First there are both controllable and uncontrollable factors. Of course, we can’t change our genetics but we are able to work on the influences we can control such as weight and inactivity.I’ve coached people with diabetes for over 25 years. Lifestyle changes are never easy. It was a lot easier to coach others. We would start small, with three reachable goals but it was up to them to plan, shop, eat and to get moving. Coaching my own family has been met with quite a bit more resistance and poor sportsmanship. Postseason baseball has dominated our TV lately. In the World Series of life, the Detwilers are up to bat. We are coming to the plate with a 2-0 count. Our glucose numbers are approaching diabetes diagnosis along with other strikes such as aging, family history and that dreaded number on the scale, as it approaches batting average Hall of Fame numbers. Please join us as we work on these 3 goals.Goal One: Visit your doc and get your numbers checked regularly. Fasting blood glucose and your A1C (aiming for under 6). Get to a healthy weight. This means aim as you close as you can to BMI of 25 or below. https://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/health/educational/lose_wt/BMI/bmicalc.htm \Goal Two: Get moving! Aim for 150 minutes of moderate exercise a week. No time for exercise start with no less than 10 minutes at a break or at lunch. I am very active but Paul’s activity is in the toilet! His new goal is to walk to the barn up and back, once daily which would take him about 20 minutes, giving him 100 minutes a week. Guess he’ll have to catch up on the weekends! As farms and machinery become more automated, this goal is becoming more important.Goal Three: Fill your plate with real food. Choose food with the least amount of processing, ingredients, fats, sugars, salt, additives and preservatives on the label. Shop around the perimeter of the store avoiding those tempting foods in bags, boxes and cans. Fill up your plate with lots of colorful fruits and veggies with a side of lean meats, low-fat dairy and wholegrains. Paul and I have a love affair with breads, starchy veggies, Doritos and sweets. This is going to be a challenge.In the Agriculture industry, our priority has been on our animals’ welfare, machinery condition and plant health. It’s time to make your own health a priority. To continue the sustainability of our industry, it starts with our own health.

A set of tech companies including a leading proptech firm have launched an initiative to help those who have been left isolated and lonely by the fast-developing Coronavirus crisis.CoronaFriend.com has been built and launched in under two weeks and will help local people shield and assist elderly and vulnerable neighbours.Inspired by the recent phenomenon of local champions who have put leaflets through the doors of neighbouring homes, the website includes an interactive map that enables local champions to take responsibility for a street, helps local volunteers to coordinate their activities and identify which addresses and residents need help.Volunteers can use the proptech platform to download a ready-made leaflet to print off and post through neighbours’ letter boxes, offering help with things like shopping and cooking or to simply arrange a chat to combat loneliness.The free service has been created by a group of tech company pioneers including Orla Shields of Kamma, which is a service that provides letting agents, lenders and local authorities data and analysis about select and HMO licensing schemes around the UK.“In the face of the appalling human cost of the COVID-19 virus, the outpouring of community support has been so inspiring, and we wanted to do what we could to help,” says Shield.“I am so proud of my team for working tirelessly to use our expertise to bring structure to the massive volunteering effort, allowing volunteers to more easily provide their support where it is needed.”Visit CoronaFriend.Kamma coronafriend coronavirus Orla Shields April 3, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
