Fish delivery and more

Tuna supply is bad this week. I had yellow fin tuna only at the beginning. And I have big eye tuna but this is from Hawaii, means there is no toro.

Uni is very limited this time because of bad weather in CA.

Japanese fish is fine, there is no problem. I buy Fish Omakase every Tuesday, this assortment is fun and our customers are very happy with that.

Researchers find exercise lowers death risk of diabetes patients

While doctors have long recommended exercise to help prevent diabetes, researchers have now found that daily brisk physical activity lowers the mortality rates of patients who have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, the most common form in Japan.

A research group under the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare found that diabetes patients who exercised regularly had mortality rates about 40 percent lower than those who did not.

“Compared with dietary guidance and medicine, exercise has not been recommended as eagerly by doctors treating diabetes,” said Hirohito Sone, a professor of medicine at Niigata University, who was part of the research group. “There is a need to provide support for exercise by patients.”

The results of the research will be published in a European journal.

The research group distributed questionnaires to about 1,700 diabetes patients between the ages of 40 and 69. The questionnaire included items about exercise habits. Those individuals were also tracked for eight years of medical treatment.

The researchers found that the group of individuals who exercised regularly to the equivalent of at least 30 minutes a day of walking at a brisk pace had mortality rates about 40 percent lower than the group of individuals who exercised very little. The incidence of strokes also decreased by a similar level.

The improvement in blood sugar, blood pressure and cholesterol levels due to regular exercise is believed to be the cause for the difference in mortality rates.

Statistics taken by the ministry in 2007 found there were about 8.9 million people in Japan strongly suspected of having type 2 diabetes, accounting for 90 percent of all diabetes cases.

Type 2 diabetes often arises from overeating and a lack of exercise. That leads to a decrease in the secretion of hormones and insulin, which lower blood sugar levels or makes them less effective in carrying out that task. If type 2 diabetes is left untreated, it can lead to blindness, strokes or heart disease.
