Are Fake Sugars Contributing to the Obesity Epidemic? Non-nutritive Sweeteners & Cardiometabolic Health

More and more people are using artificial sweeteners like Sweet and Low, Equal, and Splenda brands instead of sugar, thinking they are making a healthier choice. But, are these really healthier? Meghan Azad, PhD, will share her research on this issue during the NADA webinar on December 12, 2017.

Dr. Azad is a Canadian Research Chair in Developmental Origins of Chronic Disease, Children’s Hospital Research Institute of Manitoba, and Department of Pediatrics and Child Health, University of Manitoba.  In her webinar presentation, she will talk about how artificial sweeteners are increasingly being used by individuals and by different food and drink companies.

Dr. Azad will explain how artificial sweeteners affect the body, particularly cardiometabolic health. Cardiometabolic health concerns both heart disease and metabolic disorders such as diabetes. She will share how her research looked at the impacts of artificial sweeteners on the health of children and adults, including during pregnancy, and what the findings were.

The webinar will be broadcast in coordination with Indigenous Diabetes Health Circle (IDHC, formerly SOADI) and the FNHSSM PEKE.  The webinar will air live Tuesday, December 12, 2017 at 11 a.m. central time.  To register, enter as guest at the following link:

Diabetes: Sharing is caring

  • This year's "Your Health Matters" Calendar is a product partnership between the National Aboriginal Diabetes Association and the Indigenous Sport & Wellness Ontario (ISWO) 
The National Aboriginal Diabetes Association and Indigenous Sport & Wellness Ontario (ISWO) have partnered to develop the 2019 Your Health Matters Calendar. ISWO has shared pictures and information about a number of Indigenous athletes who are Wellness Warriors and have taken part in the "Wellness Warrior"campaign, developed by Indigenous Sport & Wellness Ontario. Though sharing about their paths and journeys, the athletes in the calendar hope to inspire and influence others to get involved in sport and physical activity. 
As with previous NADA calendars, each day on the calendar has three spots to record blood sugar levels if you are a person living with diabetes and conducting regular tests. Self-testing your blood sugar (blood glucose) can be an important tool in managing your treatment plan and preventing long-term complications of diabetes. 
All the best in 2019!
