  More Physical Activity Can Lower Type 2 Diabetes Risk By 26 Percent Exercise has been linked to a lower risk of developing Type 2 diabetes; exactly how much exercise should you get? Eating healthy, losing weight, and being more active are known ways to prevent and manage diabetes, and two new studies based out of the United Kingdom suggest that those who walk or cycle for the recommended 150 minutes a week may reduce their risk of Type 2 diabetes by 26 percent.

In an appearance at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., in 2009, Moore recounted her diagnosis 40 years earlier, after a miscarriage. For people with type 1 diabetes , Mary Tyler Moore , who died Wednesday at age 80, was not just an actress.

Goodbye, Mary Tyler Moore . Our Diabetes Community is mourning the loss of a legendary type 1 champion who changed the world of diagnosed as an adult with what was then commonly known as "juvenile diabetes ," to not presenting the face of a "textbook diabetic " struggling with her disease.

For people with type 1 diabetes, Mary Tyler Moore, who died Wednesday at age 80, was not just an actress. She was a fellow traveler who helped bring a widely misunderstood disease out of the shadows.

Moore was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in her 30s, and kept it a secret for much of her career. But eventually she became an outspoken advocate. As the longtime International Chairman of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, now known as JDRF, Moore testified before congressional committees and made many public service announcements and appearances.

“She was a role model and a source of inspiration,” who raised awareness and research money during an era when treatment emerged from “the dark ages” and edged toward a cure, said JDRF CEO Derek Rapp.

Scientists Are On Their Way To Creating A Cure For Diabetes

  Scientists Are On Their Way To Creating A Cure For Diabetes Scientists at Florida State University have used a mathematical equation to develop a device which they hope will one day cure type 2 diabetes.The basis for the proposed type 2 diabetes cure is to use a mix of math and technology to restore the body’s production of insulin. Using their model of a unique mathematical equation combined with a tool known as a microfluidic device, the researchers successfully reactivated insulin-producing pancreatic beta cells in a lab setting, and they believe it's only a matter of time before they can recreate the results in people.

Actress Mary Tyler Moore was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in 1969 and was the first, and few in Hollywood, to advocate for research. Here, Moore testifies in 2009 at a senate hearing on the need for federal funding for Type 1 Diabetes . Towards the end of her life, Moore was suffering from several

In type 1 diabetes, the body cannot make insulin, a hormone the body needs to get glucose from the bloodstream to the rest of the body. Because it is often diagnosed in children or young adults, it was formerly known as juvenile diabetes. It is much less common than type 2 diabetes, which typically develops later in life.

In an appearance at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., in 2009, Moore recounted her diagnosis 40 years earlier, after a miscarriage.

“A blood test revealed that my blood sugar level was 750. Normal is between 70 and 110. And they did not know how I was still alive and walking around. But within 48 hours, I was brought back to normal, and then began the hard part, living with the disease.”

She explained why she hesitated to become an advocate when the JDRF first approached her, in 1984: “At the time, I hadn’t taken ownership of my diabetes. I wasn’t sure I wanted the world to know that behind the smile that could turn it on was an independent woman who was dependent on multiple shots of insulin a day, just to stay alive.”

This Is the Best Workout for Women

  This Is the Best Workout for Women Most women neglect strength training, but those who do it have lower risks of serious diseases.Less appealing is the other, more neglected kind: strength-training. While about half of Americans meet the goals for aerobic exercise, only 20% do the recommended muscle-strengthening activities that work major muscle groups. Women, especially, tend to shy away from it.

Mary Tyler Moore testifies at a Senate hearing for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation in 2009 on the need for federal funding for Type 1 diabetes research. Moore was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when she was 33.

But she said she was glad she got over that reluctance.

In a 2009 book Growing Up Again: Life, Loves, and Oh Yeah, Diabetes, Moore said diabetes had permanently affected her vision, balance and stamina, and she shared her struggles to give up alcohol and smoking, according to a Publishers’ Weekly review.

The JDRF now includes the book in a care package for newly diagnosed adults.

Her personal struggles and the way she overcame them “were very powerful,” for others, Rapp said.  Moore’s husband S. Robert Levine, a physician, remains involved in the organization.

Moore also was an animal rights advocate. The Humane Society tweeted: “We are so saddened by the passing of our friend.”
