 'Silent killer disease' are diseases that produces minimum or no symptoms and are capable of causing death if not treated.Heart disease, hypertension and diabetes are major silent killer diseases.

High blood pressure (hypertension) can lead to and make worse many complications of diabetes, including diabetic eye disease and kidney disease. Most people with diabetes develop high blood pressure during their life.

Having diabetes makes high blood pressure and other heart and circulation problems more likely because diabetes damages arteries and makes them targets for hardening (atherosclerosis). Atherosclerosis can cause high blood pressure, which if not treated, can lead to blood vessel damage, stroke, heart failure, heart attack, or kidney failure.

Three groups were studied with different diabetes interventions. The first was given education only. The second was on a weight loss program, increased physical activity, and had a decrease in consumption of salt and alcohol. The third had all the interventions of the first, but also were put on the dash diet. All three groups showed positive health changes, but only the one with the dash diet statistically increased insulin sensitivity.

The dash is a positive step in managing effects of diabetes in addition to the insulin sensitivity. This is because many people with diabetes have a higher risk of heart disease and stroke. Hypertension increases this risk, so a diet that decreases blood pressure will have the benefit of being a tool of prevention of other diseases in individuals with diabetes.

Develop your relationship with your medical provider and be sure to maintain contact about any questions, concerns or changes in your diabetes symptoms.

"DASH" stands for "Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension,"

The DASH diet (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) was created to assist in lowering blood pressure. It can also prevent high blood pressure where people are susceptible to the condition.

HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE LEADS TO HEART ATTACKS AND CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE!

Hypertension is called the "silent killer" because about one-third of the people with it DO NOT KNOW that they have it. One in every four adults -- some 50 million people in the USA alone -- have high blood pressure.
 
High blood pressure often has no warning signs or symptoms. Once it occurs it usually lasts a lifetime. Research has shown that following a healthy eating plan can both reduce the risk of developing high blood pressure and lower an already elevated blood pressure. If uncontrolled, it can lead to heart and kidney disease and stroke.

The US NHLBI (National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute) sponsored a serious of clinical trials, and determined that the DASH diet was successful in bringing down high blood pressure. In fact, results would happen within as little as 2 weeks.

All the recipes also include detailed information on Calories, Calories from Fat, Total Fat, Saturated Fat, Cholesterol, Sodium, Total Carbohydrate, Dietary Fiber, Sugars, Protein, as well as serving sizes.
