When I started this blog, I had only a vague idea about a ‘direction’ for my posts.
But as may well be the case for you, I have learned it is important to find a ‘niche’, to service.
I am interested in a ‘health’ niche, and specifically, the trials and tribulations
Of a person with late on-set diabetes.
This is also called hyperglycemia. Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes.
I struggle with that myself.
It is my desire to find practical solutions, healthy life choices, recipes and also to delve in to things such as a diet rich in ‘superfoods’.
Example: Broccoli and salmon tagliatelle
This delicious salmon recipe can be prepared in just 15 minutes.
My goal is to share what I have learned along the way, and the benefits I am enjoying.
A number of popular are at the top among persons researching ‘healthy diet and diabetes’.
– Cinnamon and cinnamon tablets
– Other natural foods and supplements such as
– There are ‘mountains’ of data and research.
– Many myths and falsehoods are common-place.
– For example this excerpt:
– ‘People with diabetes receive mixed messages about weight loss from magazines, newspapers, friends, family, and, yes, even health professionals. Few subjects have accumulated as much misleading and potentially dangerous folklore as the subject of obesity. A common message is that losing weight is just a matter of willpower’
Yet many diets prescribed by clinical professionals are ‘weak’ in terms of nutrition, and high in calories, causing the patient to be further dependent upon the medicines to control blood sugar levels!
What is a person to do?
My hope is to share some successes – as well as lessons learned.
It is my opinion that diabetes does not have to be the end of a healthy, long, satisfying life.
Do you think this is a useful topic? Would it serve a real need?
Does this sound like a viable niche to you?
Your opinion is valued.
Some early testing and research shows there are many things the body itself can do when supplied what it needs, to combat the effects of diabetes:
– Weight gain
– Blood sugar spikes and dips
Additionally, it may be possible for many type 2 diabetes sufferers to reduce or discontinue their medications, such as metformin over time and under a doctor’s care and watchful eye.
Always, it is best to take this journey under a doctor’s care. And I am doing that.
But it is always wise to be proactive about one’s own health care.
So my blogging on this topic will be decidedly positive. With helpful tips and information.
Look back here to see further posts.
Success to you!
