¿Por qué la quinua es el alimento perfecto para los diabéticos?

La quinua recientemente ha aumentado su popularidad en todo el mundo, y ya se ha hecho un nombre como uno de los alimentos más nutritivos que puede haber. A comparación de otros granos enteros, la quinua tiene más proteína, antioxidants, minerals and fiber. También está libre de gluten, lo cual hace que sea el alimento perfecto para las personas que son sensibles al gluten.

Experts say los granos enteros reducen el riesgo de diabetes, enfermedades al corazón y la presión arterial alta. Además de eso, recientemente se ha descubierto que la quinua es una gran fuente de nutrición para las personas que sufren de diabetes, y puede usarse como una manera saludable de mantener los niveles de azúcar en la sangre.

¿Qué es la quinua?

Mientras puede ser un alimento nuevo en los supermercados de tu localidad, la quinua ha sido uno de los alimentos principales en la dieta de las familias en Sudamérica por varios siglos, desde los tiempos remotos de los Incas.

Su origen es en las montañas de los Andes, por lo que puede sobrevivir las condiciones climáticas más duras. La quinua se conoce como un grano entero, ya que los Incas la conocían como “la madre de todos los granos”, pero en realidad es una semilla.

Nowadays, hay 120 variaciones conocidas de esta semilla, pero las más populares son la quinua blanca, roja y negra, por lo que es más probable que veas estas tres variaciones en tu tienda local.

La investigación de los beneficios de la quinua es relativamente nueva a comparación de las investigaciones en otros alimentos, y solo en los últimos 30 años los expertos han empezado a descubrir e investigar los beneficios para la salud que tiene esta semilla.

Mientras aún se necesita obtener más investigación, actualmente se sabe que agregar la quinua a tu dieta puede reducir el riesgo de presión sanguínea elevada y colesterol alto. También se ha demostrado que puede ofrecer muchos beneficios a las personas que sufren diabetes.

¿Cómo la quinua puede impactar en los niveles de azúcar en la sangre?

Una de las claves para llevar una vida saludable con diabetes es manejar y controlar tu dieta. La quinua es una gran elección para las personas que sufren diabetes porque es un grano entero, que es uno de los componentes clave en la dieta saludable para diabéticos, además de las frutas, vegetables, proteína magra y grasas insaturadas.

Los alimentos que tienen alto índice glucémico elevarán tus niveles de azúcar en la sangre y pueden hacer que sea difícil controlarlos. La quinua, however, tiene un índice glucémico bajo, lo cual quiere decir que no provocará que tus niveles de azúcar en la sangre se eleven.

Mientras la mayoría de los granos no tiene los aminoácidos necesarios para formar una proteína, la quinua tiene los suficientes para ser considerada una proteína completa. También es una gran fuente de fibra que no impacta en los niveles de azúcar en la sangre y te ayudará a mantener el peso de tu cuerpo, previniendo así otras condiciones crónicas asociadas a la diabetes.

Maneras fáciles de preparar la quinua

La quinua se prepara en agua y es cocinada de manera similar al arroz. Para prepararla, usa una taza de quinua sin cocinar y dos tazas de agua en una cacerola y ponla a hervir. Una vez que el agua esté hirviendo, reduce la intensidad del fuego y deja que se cocine a fuego lento hasta que la mayor parte del agua haya sido absorbida. En la mayoría de los casos, esto tarda de 15 a 20 minutes.

La quinua también puede ser usada como un aditivo saludable para otro tipo de platos. Al igual que el arroz, puedes agregarla en sopas o guisos para darle al plato un toque extra delicioso y saludable.

Con todos los beneficios que se han descubierto de la quinua, nos preguntamos por qué las personas siguen usando el arroz. Para los diabéticos, es el grano perfecto para una dieta saludable. Incorporando esta pequeña semilla en tu dieta, te ayudará a controlar tus niveles de azúcar en la sangre mientras mantienes un peso saludable que prevenga problemas secundarios causados por la diabetes.

What is chronic fatigue syndrome (SFC)?

What is chronic fatigue syndrome (SFC)?

We can define it as "an intense fatigue and continual; which is not relieved by rest and is not directly caused by other diseases ". The exact causes of CFS are unknown, but theories suggest a viral cause (more specifically the Epstein-Barr virus or human herpes virus 6); or an autoimmune inflammation of the nervous system. However it could not yet be determined, and therefore not discarded also influenced by factors such as stress, Genetic or environmental causes. This syndrome occurs most often in women 30 a 50 years old, but it can affect other sectors of the population. It is a disease that is little known and little understood.

What are your symptoms?

As its name implies, deep and persistent fatigue is the main symptom. And then frequently exaggerates the physical or mental exercise. It could also include other features such as headaches or muscle aches, lack of concentration and memory, irritability or joint pain. Extreme tiredness usually have the following characteristics at the beginning of the pathology, What is it:

  • Lasts at least 6 months
  • It is not relieved by rest or prolonged sleep
  • Severe enough to prevent some activities of daily living
  • Standing Worsens.

Exams and Tests

Basically controls in this syndrome are based on other possible causes of fatigue, such as anemias, hypothyroidism, farmacodependencias, neurological diseases (as multiple sclerosis), depression and psychiatric diseases and other cardiac pathological conditions, liver or kidney.

After ruling out other causes, we focus on the same symptoms of fatigue.

Treatment

CFS currently has no cure. So the treatment is based on relieving symptoms. Each patient is usually addressed in a very particular, and as first steps it comes to improving and maintaining quality of life, including healthy eating and exerted gradually and to its posibilidades.Además cognitive behavioral therapies include, sleep management techniques and pharmacological treatments to reduce pain, anxiolytic and / or antidepressant.

The patient is advised to lead an active social life, but avoiding physical activity exaggerate, control balance between activity and rest sleep; and a balanced distribution of occupations weekly. It has also seen good results in some patients biofeedback techniques, hypnosis, meditation or Yoga

final suggestions

Since the causes, prospects and forecasts of this disease are still unclear, it is suggested not self-medicate with multivitamins and perform medical consultation as soon as possible before any of these symptoms, for early detection of activity.

Currently investigating whether it could also be a way of SFC "atypical", and the existence of more specific markers to achieve earlier diagnosis and more effective. Therefore it is a condition that is in the middle stage of research.

At Posada del Qenti we have a multidisciplinary team that can help in detecting both SFC, as well as the other possible pathologies; always with the intention of improving the health of our patients.
