what happens when your body is consistently exposed to stress? Your hormones go haywire. A hormone known as adrenaline elevates blood pressure. Simultaneously cortisol, a stress hormone, activates and increases blood sugar (glucose) levels beyond standard limits. This long-term activation of stress overexposes your body to these particular hormones that causes a disruption in the way your body functions.
Diabetes and Renal Failure
Posted by Mike on 7/16/2012 to • Diabetes
According to the National Kidney Foundation, diabetes is one of the many leading causes of death in the U.S. Diabetes is not a medical condition that stands alone. Scientific evidence has confirmed that diabetes is a major risk factor for developing renal disease. Renal disease occurs when diabetes damages the blood vessels that travel to the kidneys. When destruction in the blood vessels takes place, the kidneys begin to retain water and sodium, resulting in inflammation and complications for eliminating waste products within the body.

According to the American Diabetes Association, cardiovascular disease (CVD) is one of the many leading causes of deaths amongst Latinos.

This particular abnormality places an individual at an increased risk for a heart attack, heart failure, stroke.

Traditional Latin American cuisine contains ingredients that can be beneficial to the Hispanic diet. Tomatoes, salsas, chili peppers, citrus fruits, and alcohol such as wine, may promote good health if consumed in moderation. These particular foods, as well as other foods that are high in acidity and fat, for instance fried foods, may cause an individual to have an unpleasant experience after the ingestion of a large meal.
Stress in the Latino Community
Posted by Gus on 7/1/2012 to • General Health
In American society, there is an extensive amount of pressure to succeed.  We all crave success, however success may come easier to some more so than others.  Latin Americans, particularly those that have immigrated here, may find that success is easier said than done. Hispanics that are not natives to this country may struggle with emotional distress. Latin Americans are classified as minorities. As minorities, occasionally we may experience inequality, poverty, and discrimination, in addition to language barriers during social interaction.
