Best news I've heard in 4 yrs....no cancer cells were found, I'm so damn happy I could spit!!

Bad news, my damn thyroid is swollen. So I've gained 15 pounds in like 3months and I just knew it was hubby's dulicious blueberry pancakes and bacon he cooks every Sat and Sun.
I feel good knowing it wasn't just the pancakes and bacon (I didn't want to give them up) plus I've been busting my ass at the gym or some type of exercise 7 days a week so I probably would have gained even more weight had I not been workout.

Very happy to hear your news Chigaco Kinks! Didn't even know you were worrying about that. Keep doing what you can at the gym, too.

It irritates me greatly that my laptop battery is basically dead (~15 minute life). Only had the damn thing a year and I remembered to unplug it as much as I could. Now I don't dare! KMT!
My hair is in the 4s, low in porosity, high in density and coarse.

I did a bantu knot out today. I haven't done one since last june, and I just cut my hair the other night. So I come into work this morning and my manager is getting a register ready for me. He suddenly stops and cocks his head to the side:
tariq: who cut your hair, honey?
me: me
tariq (squints eyes): who curled it?
me: me
tariq (stunned and breathy): You're beautiful
me(nervous giggling): Thank you

I don't know how to take the compliment. He's really flirtatious, so I was a little bit creeped out honestly.

Halle said that she has type 2 diabetes so I was going by her own words. I just had recalled it vaguely from memory so thank you VERY much for the educational info because I think it's very important. Halle is no longer insulin dependent she says. So I guess it depends on how you look at it ?

Here is a video of Halle saying it in her own words:
HALLE BERRY cures diabetes Type 1 [insulin's lowered] cured to a Type 2 Diabetic [insulin resistant] - YouTube


May I ask..why is it that this (type 2 diabetes) is affecting Asians so much..? I am not trying to be racist but I always thought generallly Asians were healthy because they have better diets on average. And what are they technically calling skinny-fat people ? I mean I've heard the term but can you explain to me medically what that means and what are the ramifications ?

This whole diabetes thing seems so scary.

I don't think she understands her disease process. Maybe she went and developed type ii along with her type i. Maybe she's taking some drug we (or at least I) don't know about. I suppose that's possible.

From what I've read (and yes, I'm talking in general terms), many Asians [like Native Americans, African Americans, West Indians (I know I know), people in the countries in Africa, native peoples of the South Pacific, etc.] have some predispositions and a lot of it is traced back to lifestyle, particularly diet. Many of these groups have/had very specific diets before the refined "Western" diet came along...

so i guess you took that feedback to heart

i see you posting more and trying to participate... i still peep your side hustle though

I'm late, as usual, and this may have already been said. But Halle has Type I. Really both are fatal

Skinny people have diabetes too. Actually type I is very prevalent in caucasians. Type II gets a lot of press now because it is often linked to lifestyle habits and minorities eating diets that their bodies are not familiar with and the "Western"/USA diet.

There was an article in last month's Shape or Women's Health about "skinny-fat" people (their words, not mine). The subject of the article was a "physically fit" Asian woman (type ii diabetes is really prevalent in Asian people).

Just wanted to add that in Type I your pancreas is defective from birth. It burns out rather early with seemingly no "wrongdoing" on your part. With type II your pancreas burns out a little later but still early (because honestly your pancreas, if not defective, should last your lifetime) from "wrongdoing", usually slowly. Wrongdoing would be poor diet and/or lack of exercise. It used to be "adult onset diabetes" because the typical afflicted person was middle aged. Nowadays they just say type II because 12 year olds are popping up with it.

Belly fat is believed to be very bad if you're trying to not get diabetes.

From what I've read (and yes, I'm talking in general terms), many Asians [like Native Americans, African Americans, West Indians (I know I know), people in the countries in Africa, native peoples of the South Pacific, etc.] have some predispositions and a lot of it is traced back to lifestyle, particularly diet. Many of these groups have/had very specific diets before the refined "Western" diet came along. It's full of foods that make your pancreas basically go on a roller coaster. For example, eating say a milkshake is kind of like having your heat completely off because you're not home and then coming home, turning up the heat, plugging in some space heaters, turning on your oven, and making a fire in the fireplace. All of those actions in the end of the sentence are the equivalent of eating a donut in that metaphor. I'm not doing a really good job of explaining it right now, but I'll try to find some articles later, I have to go to work. LOL

There's no medical term from skinny fat from what I can tell, since fat is not a diagnosis. I'll have to look that article up. I still have the magazine somewhere.
Originally Posted by curlyarca
The skinny fat article was in Women's Health, November 2011 issue. It's called "Young, Slim, and Diabetic," by Sushma Subramanian. The article says 15% of people with type ii are not overweight (source: NIH). A doctor in the article calls it "TOFI": thin outside fat inside. Fat covering your innards yields inflammation that makes your pancreas and liver unhappy, make you more insulin sensitive. The article says a big risk factor is not exercising or regulating weight through diet alone. The article says Asian Americans are hypersensitive to "extra calories" by genetics. Basically genetic predisposition.

The woman starting off the article is a 29 year old thin woman of Chinese-American ethnicity diagnosed as prediabetic. The article also mentions a 30 year old woman (race not identified) who is 5'10 and 165 pounds who was diagnosed with diabetes at 28.

When I read this last month I remember being shocked that a decent article on this was in Women's Health. Anyway, page 143 explains how type ii diabetes works.

If you want to know more about type ii diabetes, go to the CDC website. You will see the states with highest prevalence of type ii diabetes are something like Mississippi and Tennessee. When you look at the data for type i, Colorado has the highest prevalence. I don't think it's a coincidence that Mississippi and Louisiana have huge black populations (coupled with high poverty) and Colorado has a huge white population (coupled with relatively wealthy population). BUT overall, Colorado has very little diabetes in general. (I'm thinking people there are really outdoorsy, very active, very health conscious....big contrast compared to states like Tennessee and Mississippi where people may like hunting but they're not exactly hiking and doing all sorts of super active sports in weather extremes. And really good but risky cuisine here, too.) But those are my conclusions.

Notice on the second link the red in Arizona and New Mexico. Those areas are reservations. I'm betting those other red blotches in northwesterly states are reservations, too. From all of the data I have seen, I personally believe high, simple carbs seriously devastate non-white people. Our systems just can't take it. We're more likely to be poor and not have access to environments and things that help you remain healthy. This is not even taking into account predispositions for diabetes.

The metaphor I mentioned about central heat or whatever, basically my opinion is if you must eat simple carbs, you need to eat that with some protein to cushion the shock to your system. All that sugar hitting your blood suddenly like that makes your endocrine system go into overdrive. It spits out all of this insulin to take care of it. Then once it's gone you start getting the shakes and **** because you've got all this excess insulin floating around with no sugar to Pac-Man up. So then you eat more simple carbs and start the stupid cycle again. Over time, your pancreas just....wears out. It does not work in isolation either.

Once your pancreas gets tired and your insulin producing cells burn out, then you're up the creek. Suddenly you have glucose but not enough insulin. This is high blood sugar. Glucose is horrible for your blood vessels in high concentrations, it scars them up. Scar tissue develops on the "sticky" vessel walls, making them even "stickier". Coupled with a high bad cholesterol diet, cholesterol starts lining your vessels. Small blood vessels die first (capillaries are where oxygen/carbon dioxide transfer occurs; poorly ventilated parts is not good): numbness and tingling in your fingers and toes. Then you can't feel sensations and temperature there anymore. Vision gets bad and kidneys get bad because of dying capillaries there. The tiny vessels in your brain, heart and other organs are also effected. Next thing you know you have chest pain, weird headaches, and you're just not peeing like you used to.

People emphasize the amputations related to diabetes because people fear that (seemingly) more than the above. But it's all going to break, slowly but surely.


Anyone can get diabetes. But you can prevent it via diet and exercise (exempting predispositions, which just means you have to work harder). You can't "cure" yourself of type i. You will need medication for life, generally. But you can "cure" yourself of type ii with diet and exercise. You won't need medication anymore, and I'm going to be honest and say I don't fully get how this works off the top of my head. I should know, but I frankly can't remember. I think the idea is your new and improved lifestyle allows your body to run on what is essentially a burned out pancreas that doesn't have to work so hard anymore since you have a better handle on your diet and physical activity. Exercise gives your body better control over insulin production. Diets balanced (not to be confused with equal amounts, but adequate proportions) in protein, fat, and complex carbs condition your system to not shoot out insulin so fast. Your pancreas doesn't have to take off at a sprint to take care of glucose introduced to your system.

That concludes my soapbox! Maybe this will help someone.

Here are some links to more information on diabetes, whichever type: CDC - Diabetes Statistics and Research - Diabetes & Me - Diabetes DDT

Here's a map: Diabetes Data and Trends

Hope I didn't bore you to death! Find that Women's Health article, it's really decent.
