To many years after a sister was diagnosed type1 I began following the Mediclim 24 hour e mail alert system for weather changes that are known to affect such conditions as Diabetes and Migraine, looking further into this I recently found some info about how blood sugar level changes in winter and summer affecting insulin requirement.
Now it all makes a lot more sense, after WW2 the 'western diet became the norm and we now know antibiotics to which we owe so much have been abused by sometimes overworked Doctors, concerns have also grown about antidepressants being misused just like antibiotics is it then so surprising that so many conditions that are increasing today involve lhypogllycaemia. Many decades later we are all much more aware how it all affects blood sugar levels and the Mediclim system is one way we can moderate an extreme sensitivity of blood sugar to weather changes whatever time of the year they occur. Beyond all this we can do more, much more for our childrens sake by educating them by example not to repeat our mistakes. A recent polish study confirmed once again that 'Westernisation' is the big factor in increasing diabetes, so lets get it right on a personal level it's more about MODERATION than Westernisation not just to manage our own health problems but more importantly to leave our decendents a health legacy that protects them
tomorrow from what we know today can be largely prevented. Genetics is a powerful medical tool yet the evidence is now beginning to indicate environment plays the dominant role in auotoimmune diseases. We have so much to be grateful for in the freedom of the Western world not least the freedom of choice to be more healthy as a nation.
