The newly developed special report "Food and Mood: Secrets to Managing Mood Swings, Food and Weight" explains the connection between food and mood and asks “Is your medication making you fat?”
It lists specific "bipolar super foods" that help stabilize moods and warns about the exact foods to avoid. It concludes with a discussion of diabetes and bipolar disorder. People with bipolar disorder are up to 3 times more likely to develop diabetes. The report explains how the same healthy eating that protects you from diabetes will also help manage mood swings and control weight.
In February 2009, the medical journal Psychiatric Services published findings showing that bipolar disorder can double the risk of early death from a range of medical conditions -- including some that can be controlled through diet and exercise.
Nutrition and diet should be of paramount concern for those with bipolar disorder as new research shows these are critical for managing not just mood swings, but also the serious physial risks associated with having bipolar disorder -- including a greatly increased risk of early death from diabetes, heart disease and stroke.
