5 Myths and Facts about Diabetes

Diabetes is a serious condition with severe effects that can last a lifetime. However, there are many misconceptions regarding diabetes that make people think certain foods or situations will immediately make them diabetics. Thus, it is essential to know the myths and facts about diabetes. 

“Genetics and lifestyle are major causes of having diabetes. It should be taken seriously, but it’s important to remember that not everything you hear about diabetes is true. Learn the facts, so you can make knowledgeable decisions to prevent the disease,” says Dr. Nicky Montoya, president of MediCard Philippines. 

Here’s a list of diabetes myths and corresponding facts: 

Myth: Diabetes is caused by eating too much sugar. 

Fact: Weight gain is one of the risk factors in developing diabetes. A diet that is high in excess calories can be a cause of excess weight. Drinking sugary drinks such as sodas has been linked to excess weight, thus, increasing a person’s risk for developing diabetes. However it is not yet proven that too much sugar directly causes diabetes. 

Myth: Women with diabetes should not get pregnant. 

Fact: Women who manage their diabetes well can have a normal pregnancy and give birth to a healthy baby. But a woman with diabetes should keep her blood glucose (sugar) in the target range—both before she is pregnant and during pregnancy. 

Myth: People with diabetes cannot donate blood. 

Fact: Diabetics are eligible to donate blood as long as their sugar level is controlled, are in good health, their blood pressure is below 180/100 and are not anemic. On the day of the blood donation, they need to remember to eat an adequate meal, drink extra fluids, and avoid drinking caffeinated beverages. It is also advisable for diabetics to stay away from fatty foods, as it might affect some of the tests done to determine their eligibility for blood donation.

Myth: Diabetics should never consume alcoholic drinks. 

Fact: Diabetics are advised to avoid drinking alcohol since it may lead to a major drop in blood sugar. However, according to some studies, one drink of alcohol is allowed once a week depending on one’s health conditions. It is recommended for a diabetic to monitor his blood sugar before, during, and after drinking alcohol.

Myth: Diabetics should not eat rice. 

Fact: All foods containing carbohydrates may affect diabetes. The key to maintaining good blood sugar level and preventing long-term complications is getting the right amount of carbohydrates in one’s diet. Also, the quantity and quality of the rice a diabetic can consume always depends on the nature and degree of the diabetes. 

Diabetes should be taken seriously and managed properly. MediCard has 12 free-standing clinics nationwide that can give you more information about diabetes, as well as consultations, and laboratory tests. Visit a MediCard clinic near you or check out their website at www.medicardphils.com for more information.

Via Venetto: ‘Tis the Season for the Perfect Pair

The average woman owns 20 pairs of shoes in different styles and colors. Yet, she only wears five of them because the rest are either too uncomfortable to wear, too difficult to match with outfits or too expensive that they choose to keep it in the closet instead! 

This holiday season, it’s time to break the hoarding habit and slip on the perfect pair  that  are  truly  worth  showing off at any party, reunion and celebration — shoes that you will proudly enjoy wearing,  the  ones  that  are fashionably on point, expressive, comfortable and lasting. 

Ging Pajaro of Via Venetto firmly believes in the significance of owning good pairs: “More women buy new shoes during the Christmas season. It is a fashion statement, at the  same time a  fulfilling reward,  that  help  women  establish  their  trademark,  and express their persona. But what we truly deserve to have are the ones that express our lifestyle, that can make us go the distance happily for a long time.” 

Meticulously crafted in the brand’s fatto a mano (made by hand, handcrafted with years of experience and innovation) tradition to create that perfect silhouette for the feet, Via Venetto shoes speaks to every personality and for all occasions.  For the Holiday 2015, the brand puts forward a collection that’s perfect for the season of celebrations. 

From leather ankle boots perfect for that edgy look, studded pumps that can make a  statement  in  night  parties  and balls,   to  the  posh and  vintage  feel  of slingback heels and  the  insouciant modishness of flats—Via Venetto’s Holiday 2015 collection  marries glamour with comfort and lastingness by providing the right cushion,support and fit. This Christmas, reward yourself with an investment pair that is not meant to be kept in your closet nor easily needs to be replaced. 

Visit Via Venetto stores at Greenbelt 1, Alabang TownCenter, Trinoma and SM Megamall. For inquiries, you may contact them at Phone: 63-28926334; Telefax: 63-2-8432725; or visit http://viavenetto-phil.co.
