Gestational Diabetes

Gestational diabetes is a type of diabetes that occurs during pregnancy. It is diagnosed when your body cannot cope with the extra demand for insulin production resulting in high blood sugar levels. This is normally temporary and, in most cases, disappears after the baby is born. However, some women continue to have high blood sugar levels after delivery.   Gestational diabetes is the highest growing form of diabetes in Australia, with 12-14% of women developing gestational diabetes at some point during their pregnancy. This normally occurs around the 24th to 28th week of pregnancy. It is recommended that all women...


Children and Type 2 Diabetes

The common understanding of Type 2 diabetes is that it develops over a long period of time as the body becomes resistant to the normal effects of insulin. In some cases, this may also result in reduced insulin secretion and even progress to Latent autoimmune diabetes in Adults (LADA)(1), where over time the body also fails to produce a sufficient amount of insulin in the pancreas (similar to Type 1 diabetes(1). Although there is still...

Diet and Exercise: If they can do it on Catalyst why can’t I?

So as we talked last time there was a very interesting but somewhat unhelpful catalyst program in which Dr Joanna McMillan helped a few individuals with their Type 2 Diabetes using weight and exercise. Over the next few posts we are going to break things down to  try and make this a bit more universally helpful. But first let’s go through some basics because one of the things we most often hear is “but why is it so hard for me, what’s wrong with me?”. We have covered some of this before, but it is worth mentioning again. Firstly remember...


Concentrated food vs. foods

In this blog, we will be talking about NutriKane D as a concentrated food, what that means, and how it differs from herbal supplements that tend to be extracts. Directed nutrition (or food as medicine) takes a very different approach to the same basic premise as vitamins and supplements. That premise is that when the body is deficient in the nutrients it needs, it can’t function well and that can either a) result in metabolic problems such as blood glucose management; and b) mean the body cannot deal with diseases as well as it should. It has been well established...


The Myth of Disinfectants

  If this was a comedy website or perhaps a “life Hack” blog, then this article would be about how your sponge is dirtier than your toilet seat, or that a dog’s mouth is cleaner than a human’s, or some other rubbish that shows a dramatic lack of scientific knowledge. The real myth of disinfectants however is that in everyday life they are a good idea. So, what does that even mean? Everyone knows that germs are bad for you right? Well actually no; the truth is that germs (bad or pathogenic bacteria) make up only a tiny percentage (less...
