Diabetes and Asian / Pacific Islander Ancestry

Researchers are continuing to study the link between diabetes and Asians and Pacific Islanders, yet there has not been a great deal of information published about the link between diabetes and Asians and Pacific Islanders. However, studies have found that Native Hawaiians are twice as likely to develop Type 2 Diabetes than Caucasians and that Japanese men are about 60% more likely to develop diabetes than Caucasian men. Furthermore, diabetes is the fifth leading cause of death amongst the Asian and Pacific Islander population.  Read more..

We at Typefreediabetes™ offer wide varieties of diabetic products for different institutions like hospitals, clinics, and nursing homes.

We at Typefreediabetes™ are offering huge discounts for those establishments and institutions that we have mentioned above. Our company deliberately provides huge savings for those who order diabetic products in large quantities. If you’re asking what would be our edge compared to other diabetic suppliers, please take a look below:

For several years of existence, we have served many customers both local, and worldwide, and have received a lot of good feedback from our loyal customers. Although it’s inevitable that there will be a few times that transactions might not flow flawlessly due to some factors, which are beyond our control (like bad weather conditions when delivering the products) we ensure that we take “instant” actions, which are necessary to remedy the situation. This is one of the trademarks of our company that makes our customers loyal to us up-to now, which you cannot find in other diabetic suppliers.
  • Loyalty-rewards – One of the reasons why we have retained the trust and loyalty of our customers, is because our company offers “loyalty” rewards for those recurring customers who enjoys our service. If you sign-up in our automatic delivery system, you will avail a total of 10% discount every time each time you make a delivery order. Now compared that to other diabetic suppliers.
  • Secured Online Transaction – Unlike to some diabetic suppliers who have proliferated the internet, we have invested a lot of time and money in order to make all transactions in our site private and secured. So even if you’re a large company that would like to access our services, we assure you that all the transactions are safe and risk-free, and guaranteed to run smoothly.

Testimonials for TypeFreeDiabetes.com & Diabetes Product Reviews

The following testimonials were unsolicited:

  • I have ordered from you in the past and was totally satisfied with my purchase. That’s why I was a little surprised when this order arrived and was nothing like the photo that I
    ordered from. Since I could tell it didn’t come from your address, and was a private
    individual, I decided it was them and not you that made the mistake.

    I have no problems with your company. Thank you for the refund, I appreciate your attention to this problem.

    • D
  • Received notice today that my order has shipped, but I had already received my order on 2/17! That is GREAT SERVICE and I am VERY HAPPY with my (Portion Control) plate and place mat which I started using right away.
  • I have been type II for almost 30 years and on an insulin pump for over 5 years. As a diabetic, I know what I should eat but as the saying goes, ‘out of sight, out of mind’. This(Portion Control) plate will help keep me in focus.   
    • Thank you!  Juanita
  • I am enjoying my Omron Heart Rate Monitor.  Thanks for the fast shipment. You did not have to do that. But I appreciate your service.
    • D
  • I tried these socks and my feet felt super protected that whole day. They are really cushiony and you don’t feel the support as too tight across the ankle area. A very well designed product. My only issue is that they seem to run a size smaller than I would have expected. so follow the men’s sizes if you are going to buy. (Euros Rx Diabetic Crew Socks)
    • AM
  • I have very swollen feet because of diabetes and since I’ve bought these they have been so much better. These compression socks help reduce foot and leg swelling by increasing blood flow. The gradual compression alleviates circulation problems and muscle fatigue, making you feel revitalized and energetic throughout the day. (Jobst Men’s Stylish Dress Socks, Light Compression)
    • Kenneth
  • I tried this combination yesterday and OMG! The (Sugar-Free) Lemon Curd Sauce was to die for! The flavor of fresh lemons just burst into your mouth and was amazing! It felt like a jolt of big flavor, without the acidity of the lemons, just the flavor we love so much about lemons! Truly awesome! The cake was wonderful as well, without the sauce. I am not normally a sauce person, so for me to say that this sauce was amazing, trust me, it was! I think we will now always strongly recommend this combination to everyone who buys this cake!
    • Ann-Marie
  • Thank you for your quick response.  I am now down to 10 almonds per day.  It will also save me money as a tin of almonds is over $5.00 US in Jamaica. The can of Blue Diamond almonds has a small notice on it similar to a warning on cigarettes that states “Scientific evidence suggests, but does not prove, that eating 1.5 ounces per day of nuts, such as almonds, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease.”   So, if one ounce is 24-28 nuts, 1.5 ounces is 36-38 nuts.  I can’t afford that many almonds per day!!!  This is certainly a big difference from the Joslin Center.  Perhaps Blue Diamond is more interested in selling nuts than in my health. 
    • John
  • Thanks a lot. I am very pleased to do business with you.
    • Jose
  • I admire a company that stands behind its product…looking forward to having the Velcro Force shoe again as my husband wore his old pair out being a captain on a fishing boat. They have holes in them and he wears them cutting grass, he has diabetes and it is hard to find him comfortable shoes…
    • Vivian
  • This is so crazy, my boyfriend just called at the same time I got your reply. He says that the (Sugar-Free) cakes just arrived. Thank you so much for your time and effort. I’m sorry for the trouble and I look forward to buying from you again! Have a nice night!!!
    • Judy
  • Thank you for your help…u r the best…. I talked to Paul and he showed me some work arounds but I still feel some software modifications will help the person like me who travels around the world.  I hope you can get me the next version of the software when it is modified. (Care Memory Band)
    • S
  • Your sincere apology is greatly appreciated. I understand mistakes happen. Having said that, the key to building a stronger and more trusted company is to learn from them. Please take my gratitude along with this situation and utilize it to build a great company that I can and will be proud to refer to others in the future.

Salmon Grilled – A Healthier Choice than Grilled Beef or Pork

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Diabetes facts

Salmon Grilled – A Healthier Choice than Grilled Beef or Pork

Whenever we think of a barbecue party, most of us would automatically settle for grilled beef, grilled pork, hot dogs, and sausages. Some on occasion, might try chicken. But how many of us have considered fish and more specifically Salmon grilled?

Like me, if you love to eat fish, then Salmon grilled is pure ecstasy. The fact that nutritionists have declared salmon to be the healthiest fish to eat only adds to the treat. In any case, it is one of the tastiest fish available in the market today. “Eat healthy to live healthy” is written in bold in my family doctor’s consulting room and I always follow my doctor’s advice – especially when I love the options.

Today, people with diabetes want to improve their health and one of the best ways to do this is to eat healthy food. Adding fish to your diet, particularly Salmon grilled, is great way to start. Now for all people who instantly want to know “the numbers”, you’d be delighted to know that Salmon grilled contains proteins and essential amino acids that our body does not produce on its own. It is a good source of omega 3 fatty acids that help reduce cholesterol levels in the body. Salmon grilled is also an excellent source of Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Vitamin D, calcium, niacin, selenium and magnesium.

Salmon grilled has all those great goodies in it; is especially good for your ticker and is very tasty, but then so is beef and pork. So let us take a closer look at the “package” and see if we have a clear winner:

Salmon grilled

Beef grilled

Pork grilled

0% Saturated
Fat content

omega-3 fats: Prevents blood
clots, inflammation, combats cancers, arthritis and heart problems


Vitamins D: Is a steroid
vitamin, which encourages absorption and metabolism of calcium and



niacin, selenium, B6 and magnesium


Protein: Very essential
to all body functions


to Very low levels of contaminants.

20% Saturated Fat content

Zinc: Helps maintain
the body 's immune system


Iron: Helps carry
oxygen within the blood cells


Protein: Very essential
to all body functions


B-Vitamins: Required to “unleash”
the energy in food, good source of riboflavin and thiamin.


to an audit by the Office of Inspector General, beef containing harmful
pesticides, antibiotics, and heavy metals is being sold to the public because
two major federal agencies have not set limits for the contaminants or can
adequately test for their presence.

10% Saturated Fat content


B-Vitamins: B1 (metabolism
of carbohydrates),

(release of energy from food and tissue repair), Niacin (healthy skin,
release of energy from carbohydrates), B6 (Central nervous system), Pantothenate
(synthesize hemoglobin), Phosphorus (strengthens bones and teeth), Magnesium
(formation of strong bones and teeth), Iron (energy production), Zinc (resistance
to infections),  Protein (build and
repair tissues)


According to an audit by the Office of
Inspector General, Beef and Pork contain harmful contaminants and lack
adequate testing.

From the above, it appears that all three are equally good. Each is rich in various essential nutrients. However, beef and pork also contain saturated fats – that contain LDL cholesterol, although in relatively smaller quantities when trimmed. Nevertheless, saturated fat’s presence tips the scales in favor of Salmon grilled. The major sticking point however, is the presence of large amounts of contaminants that enter the food chain primarily through ground water and pesticides in the grass. It appears there is no law that makes it mandatory for testing of Beef or Pork for the presence of contaminants. In contrast, Salmon contains unsaturated fats in the form of omega 3 and omega 6 fats which are very beneficial for the heart. Also, testing has indicated Solomon had zero to very low levels of contaminants. The clear winner therefore, is Salmon grilled.

A Chef at a posh restaurant once told me that the Salmon is such a versatile fish that it can easily be cooked in a variety of ways. But Salmon grilled is by far the best and healthiest way to prepare it because it retains most of the nutrients. In case you didn’t know it, grilling is a healthier cooking method even for other meats because it burns off a lot of fat that is present in some cuts of pork and beef. It is possible to burn off the unwanted fat when meats are grilled, which is impossible with other forms of cooking.

Before you decide to grill Salmon, here are a few secrets you might want to know – the side with the skin must be left for a longer period on the grill than the fleshy side to allow more fat to drip out from the fish. Ideally, the fleshy side should be put first on a highly heated grill to let the grill marks form and then turned over to the skin-side. The fish can be moved away from the intense heat after a minute and allowed to cook over medium heat so that the fat slowly drips away.

Marinate For More Flavor
Marinating the fillets for a few hours enhances the taste of the fish by letting the meat absorb the flavors and making it more tender. You could use a variety of ingredients for marinating salmon. A mixture of honey, soy sauce, garlic powder and beer is one such example. Coat the salmon fillets with the mixture and keep it covered in the refrigerator for two hours. 1 to 1 ½ inch thick fillets require about seven minutes on the grill while 2-inch thick fillets would need about 10 minutes to grill.

Grill Salmon Mexican Style
A lot of people favor Mexican food, although it may not always be a healthy option. However, there are a few grill Mexican fish recipes that are quite healthy. One of them is the Salmon Soft Tacos. The soft tacos are prepared with Salmon grilled rather than the fish being fried in oil. Yet another Grill Mexican recipe is the grilled Red Snapper, which allows you to enjoy the grilled fish marinated in a mixture of achiote paste, lime juice, orange juice and lemon juice. You could try placing the marinated fish on a banana leaf and then grilling it to give it the traditional Mexican touch.  

Great for Losing Body Fat Weight
There are many benefits to including Salmon grilled once or twice a week in your diet. The proteins, vitamins and abundant omega 3 fatty acids in salmon lower the risk of cardiovascular diseases. Salmon grilled helps in regulating high blood pressure and improves the body’s response to insulin. It also helps in preventing some types of cancers and deep vein thrombosis while providing protection from pulmonary embolism. People trying to lose weight should eat Salmon grilled regularly because it is high in protein and low in fats, facilitating sugar absorption in the body. The omega 3 fatty acids in salmon also help in preventing age related cognitive problems like Alzheimer’s disease.

So next time you head for the supermarket for your weekend barbecue, you might consider Salmon grilled instead of Beef or Pork.
