Asian Americans are almost twice as likely to develop diabetes as the general population in the United States, and of those who develop the disease, more than 95% are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. The root of the problem "Traditional Asian cooking is generally low in fat and high in fiber, so it is not hard to introduce healthy cooking strategies to Asian American patients," Cheung states.
Because weight gain is not often a symptom Asian Americans with type 2 diabetes exhibit, many doctors do not link the other symptoms presented to diabetes, and many remain undiagnosed.They believe that certain herbs or Chinese medicines can address the cause of the disease, while western medicine only relieves the symptoms."Often, these patients will concurrently seek alternative medications or eat large amounts of certain foods--such as pumpkin and bitter melon--while taking their prescribed medications," she states."I usually spend the first ten minutes of our consultation explaining how certain foods will allow their medication to work better," Cheung states.Carbohydrate education is followed by a discussion about healthy proteins and fats.Special Points • ASA is the only public school in Connecticut offers Chinese Mandarin language study from Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 8.
• Students participate in 3 cycles of self-selected enrichment, which reinforces differentiated teaching and meets the needs of the gifted and talented.
Body composition differences According to Cheung, important studies that look at prevention and treatment for people with type 2 diabetes use Caucasian patients primarily.
"Due to differences in body size, physiology and cultural differences between Asians and Caucasians, results may not be applicable to Asians," she states.
