Food / 46 Local Nigerian Food Recipes For Diabetic Patients by ogedanny: 10:29am On Oct 19
Find the best Nigerian food recipes for diabetic patients you can follow to fight, prevent and stop Type 1, Type 2 or Gestational diabetes in your body.

Diabetes describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate or because the body’s cells do not respond properly to insulin or both. It is a long-term condition that causes high blood sugar levels.

There are three types of diabetes, namely:

Type 1 diabetes: in this case, the body does not produce insulin. It is referred to as insulin-dependent diabetes, juvenile diabetes, or early onset diabetes. People usually develop type 1 diabetes before the age of 40, often in early adulthood or teenage years. Type 1 diabetes is nowhere near as common as type 2 diabetes. Approximately 10% of all diabetes cases are type 1.
Type 2 diabetes: this is whereby the body does not produce enough insulin for proper function, or cells in the body do not react to insulin (insulin resistance). Approximately 90% of all cases of diabetes worldwide are type 2. Some people may be able to control their type 2 diabetes symptoms by losing weight, following a healthy diet, doing plenty of exercises and monitoring their blood glucose level. Type 2 diabetes is typically a progressive disease –it gradually gets worse and the patient will probably end up have to take insulin, usually in tablet form. Overweight and obese people have a much higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes compared to those with a healthy body weight. The risk of developing type 2 diabetes is also greater as we get older. Men whose testosterone levels are low have to be found to have a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
Gestational diabetes: this type of diabetes affects females during pregnancy. Some women have very high levels of glucose in their blood and their bodies are unable to produce enough insulin to transport all of the glucose into their cells, resulting in progressively rising levels of glucose.

Symptoms of Diabetes
A condition is known as pre-diabetes often leads to type 2 diabetes also produces no symptoms. Type 2 diabetes and its symptoms slowly develop. Type 1 diabetes can go unnoticed but it less likely to do so. Some of its symptoms listed below can come on abruptly and be accompanied by nausea, vomiting or stomach pains.

Business / ATM Withdrawal Limit In Nigeria For Naira Mastercard & Visa Card by ogedanny: 5:04pm On Oct 18
Due to the US dollar scarcity which is currently affecting the availability of the greenback in Nigeria, some banks have stopped authorising ATM withdrawal abroad. This means you will no longer use your Naira-denominated card for a cash withdrawal but can still make payment within a certain daily or monthly limit (ranging from $100 to $200) outside the shores of Nigeria to foreign merchants who do not accept Naira for bill settlement; this includes online purchases, hotel or airline booking, and any related fees paid in US dollars.

STANBIC SAYS: From 18 October 2016, you will not be able to use your Naira debit and credit cards for international transactions. Please request for a US Dollar debit or prepaid card for transactions priced in foreign currencies. Call 01 422 2222 for details.

Food / 17 Best Food Diets For Women With Fibriods by ogedanny: 6:04pm On Oct 03
As we all know, fibroid is one of the disease killing our women today. Fibroids are benign tumors that grow outside, inside or within the walls of the uterus (womb). It is unclear why fibroids develop, but there are several factors that may influence their formation. These factors include:

Hormones: estrogen and progesterone are the hormones produced by the ovaries. they cause the uterine lining to regenerate during each menstrual cycle and may stimulate the growth of fibroids. During a woman’s reproductive years, estrogen levels are high. When estrogen levels are high, especially during pregnancy, fibroids tend to swell. When estrogen levels are low, fibroids tend to shrink. For example, during a woman’s menopause.
Heredity may also be a factor; women whose close relative have had fibroids have a higher risk of developing them.
There is also some evidence that red meats, alcohol, and caffeine could increase the risk of fibroids. Also, an increased intake of fruits and vegetables might reduce the risk.

Foods to avoid are:
alcohol, animal fat such as red meat, cheese, cream, butter, ice cream, chocolate and any excess fat on white meat like turkey and chicken should be trimmed before cooking.
replace full-fat milk with low-fat milk.
avoid artificial sweeteners.
avoid soya and soya products
avoid already made foods which are packaged in plastic containers.
never leave a plastic food wrap on food while heating in a microwave.
