My oldest grandchild and his

fiancé are currently visiting me.

Mads has a very special connection

to Spain, as he lived here for

a year together with his father

and attended school here as

well. Mads was very involved in

the daily operations in the store,

where we discussed at length the

significance of vitamins, minerals,

and how a quality diet effects

the health of a person. The years

must have affected him greatly,

as he chose to study human nutrition

and finished with his doctoral

dissertation at 28 years of age. It

therefore seemed natural to ask

Mads if he would provide his scientific

input to this article, which I

had chosen should revolve around

type 2 diabetes.

Diet’s significance in

Type 2 diabetes is a disease,

where the blood sugar levels

become too elevated and the

body can no longer regulate it on

its own. It can lead to a long list

of other diseases, such as heart

and nerve afflictions. Type 2 diabetes

was called “old man’s sugar

disease” back in the day, as you

would normally be diagnosed and

treated for the disease at an old

age. However, this is no longer the

case, as the obesity epidemic is

developing, the number of cases

of type 2 diabetes has skyrocketed.

Studies have shown that there

has been an increase in type 2

diabetes cases from 5% in 1980, to

10% in 2020. But can you do anything

to prevent type 2 diabetes?

And how do you know if you are

at risk?

The difference between

type 1 and 2 diabetes

With type 1 diabetes, your insulin

production will completely stop.

This is caused by the body’s own

immune system, as it will eliminate

all the cells that produce

insulin. This usually happens to

young children or adults, and

it mandates that you get your

insulin regulated with injections.

It is still not known what exactly

causes type 1 diabetes, and we

therefore don’t exactly know

how to prevent it.

Type 2 diabetes primarily affects

adults, even though it in rare

cases also can be observed

it highly overweight children.

The disease is hereditary, which

means that our genes also plays

a role in whether or not we

develop diabetes. Type 2 diabetes

is in many cases caused

by an unhealthy lifestyle with

little physical activity and poor

dietary habits. Therefore, a lot of

energy is spent on researching

the disease, and how you could

prevent and treat the disease,

to decrease the severity of the

affliction.

Type 2 diabetes, precursors,

fatty liver, and aging

There are a number of different

ways, that you could go about

finding out whether you are at

risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

You are at a heightened

risk if you are heavily overweight

(BMI over 30 and/or a waist size

over 88 cm for women and over

102cm for men), if you have a

parent or a sibling with type 2

diabetes, have had diabetes

during a pregnancy, receive

medication in connection with

cardiac disease, high blood

pressure, elevated cholesterol, is

a smoker, or has a high alcohol

consumption.

But just because you are in the

risk group, doesn’t mean you

have to suffer from type 2 diabetes.

It is normally a disease which

develops slowly, and where the

regulation of the blood sugar is

gradually worsened. Researchers

have now started to talk about

the precursors to type 2 diabetes,

also referred to as pre-diabetes,

where you already can see

that the blood sugar levels are

slightly elevated, without being

so high that it can be called a

disease. Pre-diabetes will often

come with a series of other

symptoms, such as heightened

blood pressure, cholesterol, and

a fatty liver, which is why there

is such an interest in preventing

the development of the disease.

During the research, a large

emphasis has been placed on

preventing further development

of the disease once it has been

contracted. A lot of effort has

also been spent on examining

how a reordering of a lifestyle

can be used to prevent type 2

diabetes.

The diet and type 2

diabetes prevention

I am researching what role the

diet has in the prevention and

the development of type 2 diabetes.

Together with a series of

researchers have we examined

how eating whole-wheat products

affects the blood sugar

regulation, instead of products

containing white ore preprocessed

corn. We found that

it can provide small changes

in weight, which in turn might

bring small improvements in the

blood sugar regulation. We are

currently examining the diet’s

significance among inuits in

Greenland. There we are examining

whether the traditional

Greenlandic diet might be able

to slow down the explosion of

type 2 diabetes, which has also

arrived in Greenland, after the

western foods such as burgers,

pizza, chips, and candy has

become everyday consumer

goods in Greenland.

There is some general advice

you can follow, to both eat

healthy and prevent type 2 diabetes.

• Eat rough (by for instance

choosing whole-wheat).

• Eat a varied diet.

• Don’t eat too much.

• Eat plenty of greens and a bit

of fruit.

• Cut down on the alcohol

consumption.

In order to prevent type 2 diabetes,

it might be beneficial to

reduce your carbohydrate consumption,

such as sugar, candy,

soda, but also when it comes to

rice and potatoes. It can contribute

to extra large fluctuations in

your blood sugar, and the body

prefers amounts which are easier

to regulate.

To prevent type 2 diabetes, it

has been shown that even small

weight losses of 2 – 3 kg can

have great significance, it can

reduce your risk of developing

type 2 diabetes by up to 30%.

Even small changes in your lifestyle

can have major implications

for the development of

type 2 diabetes. It can also help

if you have already developed

type 2 diabetes.

Symptoms of type 2 diabetes

are extreme thirst, many toilet

visits, itchiness, and tiredness. If

you experience this, then consult

your doctor.

Here ends Mads’ part of

the article and I will end

by recommending different

dietary supplements,

which I have experienced

can bring improvements

when suffering from type 2

diabetes and help prevent

complications later in the

process.

Dietary supplements

• Strong vitamin-B tablets daily.

You could also supplement

with an extra 100 mg vitamin-

B6.

• Magnesium can together

with vitamin-B6, prevent

complications.

• Vitamin-C I large doses, for

instance 1000 mg twice a

day, preferably with added

bioflavonoids.

• Vitamin-E can be a good

supplement to improve circulation.

• Zinc can help prevent eye

complications. It is best to

take it in the evening.

• Almost all people lack vitamin-D,

which can aid in preventing

type 2 diabetes.

• Chromium can help reduce

the cravings for sweets and

regulate the cholesterol levels

in the blood.

• Life important fatty acids,

such as Omega-3.

• Berberine is often used in

Chinese medicine and have

shown very effective in combatting

type 2 diabetes.

• Taurine 500 mg 3x pieces.

Can prevent complications

and trouble with the eyes.

• You might benefit from a

detox or going on a liver diet

a few times a year.

Remember that especially with

type 2 diabetes, you personally

have the possibility to take on

the responsibility of the disease.

You could for instance change

your lifestyle to a healthier one.

A good opportunity could be to

challenge the entire family, this

also applies to the exercise part

of a healthy lifestyle. You could

perhaps contact a doctor who

is well informed about the disease.

The person could perhaps

give you some advice on how

you should plan your diet and

exercise habits. There are some

doctors who, together with the

patient, will help fill out diet and

exercise schedules. Meetings are

then planned and conducted

until you and your family can

manage the changes on your

own. It is important that you start

with a level that will challenge

you, but not become a stress

factor.

Be careful with too much alcohol,

fast food, ice cream, and

other sugary treats, as well as all

the different energy drinks.

I hope with all my heart that

you will avoid being a part of

the diabetes statistic, which

Mads mentioned is in rising rapidly

these years.

With the above mentioned

in mind, I hope you have

a great summer!

Tips for

sunscreen

and

sunbathing

Good advice on sunscreen

What type of sunscreen?

Sunscreen can be purchased as cream, lotion or gel - all work equally well. You just have to make

sure that the sunscreen is waterproof, as it keeps the best. Sunscreen protects the skin through

either a chemical or a physical filter. The chemical filter penetrates the skin, where it absorbs the

sun's radiation and converts it into heat, while the physical filter lays itself as a whitish layer on the

skin and reflects the radiation.

Factor

When buying sunscreen, it is important that it has a factor of 15 or more in the Nordic countries

and a factor of 30 or more in the southern countries. It must be broad-spectrum, ie. protect

against both UVA and UVB radiation. Both UVA and UVB radiation from the sun reaches through

the ozone layer and down to the ground. Therefore, it is important to ensure that the sunscreen

protects against both UVA and UVB radiation.

Amount

The Danes generally apply too little sunscreen. This means that the sunscreen's factor number and

thus also protective effect is reduced. For example, if you apply a factor of 15 in a thin layer, the

protection is reduced to approx. factor 2. A good rule of thumb is 1 body = 1 handful. Apply the

cream well in advance. The sun cream should have time to work. Apply the sunscreen at approx.

20 minutes before you go out to the sun. You should always apply sunscreen again if you have

bathed, sweat a lot or have dried with a towel.

Durability

If sunscreen has exceeded the shelf life, the factor number can no longer be counted. If

sunscreen is stored at room temperature, the shelf life is typically two to three years in unopened

state and typically 12 months after opening. If sunscreen is exposed to high heat - eg in the glove

compartment of a hot car or in the sun on the beach - the product will lose its effect over time.

If the sunscreen has become contaminated, changes colour or smells, it must be thrown out.

If you are in doubt, buy a new one.

Never lie down and roast

No matter how much cream you apply, you should never lie and roast in the sun. Sunscreen

should not be used to prolong time in the sun, but as protection while in direct sunlight. No

sunscreen can block the UV radiation 100% and it is therefore important to use sunscreen in

combination with shade and clothing.
