Had a terrific talk with the local Diabetes association director. He is getting me a ton of contacts for my trip back east this weekend. Things are starting to fall into place.

Great run and swim last night. It had cooled of a little and the fog was starting to roll into San Francisco. I ran along the Embarcadero to Aquatic Park. It was about 6pm. It was windy but the water was nice and warm. 65 degrees being nice and warm for the SF Bay. Sun was setting over Fort Mason. Not to windy when I got got out. Ran back to the Bay Club for a nice long Steam. Perfect way to end an evening.
Swam freestyle about 30 minutes. Swam handcuffed for about 20 minutes. Got to get that form back. Especially if I am going to make four handcuffed swims in one week. Nothing like setting outrageous goals. Just means I'll have to spend more time training. It'll keep me out of bars.

Got to run. Training someone early. Hope you are all up and doing pushups.

Diabetes Mellitus is a chronic disease where the body cannot process glucose (sugar) properly for growth and energy. The body needs Insulin (a hormone produced by the pancreas) to transport glucose from the blood into the cells, where it can be used for energy. With Diabetes the glucose (sugar) stays in the blood, either because the pancreas does not produce Insulin or that the available Insulin is not effective, causing blood glucose levels to rise. At the same time, however, the cells of the body are starved for glucose. Diabetes can lead to poor wound healing, higher risk of infections, and many other complications involving the eyes, kidneys, nerves, and heart. There are two types of diabetes Type I, also called insulin dependent (IDDM), and Type II or non-insulin dependent (NIDDM) . In Type I (IDDM) the pancreas cannot make the insulin because the cells that produce Insulin have been destroyed, this type of diabetes usually appears in children or young adults.. In Type II (NIDDM) the pancreas often makes enough insulin but the Insulin that is made is not effective because of low Insulin sensitivity, this type of Diabetes usually appear in adults over the age of 40. Vitamin and mineral intakes contribute to the prevention and treatment of diabetes. Poor intake of vitamin E may alter blood sugar levels and it has been shown that people with low levels of vitamin E are more likely to develop NIDMM. Diabetes may also increase free-radical activity and result in an increased need for antioxidants such as vitamin E, vitamin C and alpha-lipoic acid. Insulin sensitivity has been shown to increase with vitamin B6. Many minerals can help as well. Chromium functions in the prevention of NIDDM. Zinc levels tend be low in people with IDDM and magnesium intake seems to reduce the risk of common complications of diabetes since it functions in the release of insulin and helps transport sugar into the cells.
