THANC the Cook: 2nd Edition

THANC Foundation
Free sample

In the Spring of 2014 our former board member, Carmela Sagendorf approached THANC with a novel idea. She wanted to create a cookbook, the proceeds from which would benefit the Foundation. Carmela along with dedicated volunteer, Carol Graybeal and Foundation staff collaborated to refine and publish a collection of healthy and delicious recipes. Altogether, we assembled over 250 recipes from renowned chefs, former patients, THANC board members and staff, filling the book from cover to cover. Now in its second edition, this colossal collection includes thyroid-healthy, post-treatment friendly, gluten-free, heart-healthy, and vegetarian dishes. We intended to help those patients recovering from surgery and radiation therapy maintain a healthy diet, while showing that preparing something that tastes good can also be good for you.

 '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.
