Indeed, its emphasis merely on fresh fruits and veggies, vegetables, beans, fishes, and also monounsaturated fat just like olive oil; and even its limited addition of various meats, dairy, and also saturated fat, surely make it one of the best diets throughout the world.

Diabetes & Caffeine
Ah, caffeine! The euphoric happiness elexor that brings joy to any morning and makes people’s stupidity just a little more bearable.
I love caffeine.
And if you are an extremist like me, you probably drink caffeine almost as much as you take insulin. I never really considered caffeine's role in diabetes until I recently came across a peer reviewed study that I stared at for hours [read: minutes] because I didn’t like what I read. After that, I began looking deeper into caffeine’s infamous role in diabetes and here is what I found.

Not every case of type 2 diabetes symptoms presents the obvious—unquenchable thirst, nonstop bathroom trips, and numbness in your hands or feet. Look out for these other subtle signs that something may be amiss with your blood sugar:
1. You've noticed unpleasant skin changes
Dark, velvety patches in the folds of skin, usually on the back of the neck, elbows, or knuckles, are often an early warning sign of too-high blood sugar levels and diabetes symptoms. Although genetics or hormonal conditions can cause the skin disorder, called acanthosis nigricans, "when I notice the patches, the first thing I do is test my patient's blood sugar," says Sanjiv Saini, MD, a dermatologist in Edgewater, Maryland.
