Type 2 diabetes can be even more often found now in the world. It
affects every other American and one in four kids. This disease had its
biggest rise in the 1980s and now it is estimated that by 2050 one in
three Americans will have diabetes. Diabetes is also one of the causes
for the American federal debt. However, contrary to popular belief
diabetes can be prevented and reversed. This can be done by a simple
modification in the daily nutrition.
4 ways to help prevent, treat, and reverse diabetes
Lower the sugar intake
If you eat foods that are high in empty calories but have quickly
absorbed sugars and refined carbs then you should lower this intake or
even stop. These foods lead to insulin resistance and are the cause of
type 2 diabetes. In addition, this can also cause problems with
depression, poor sex will, increased risk for cancer and hypertension.
Walk for at least 30 minutes per day to balance the blood sugar and
lower the insulin levels. It is recommended to get your heart rate up to
70-80 percent of its maximum capacity for an hour, about six times
Get enough sleep
Sleep deprivation is one of the causes for damages to the metabolism.
Namely, it can spike the sugar and carb cravings and make you eat more.
Therefore, this increases the risk of various diseases, one of which is
Lower your stress
Chronic stress increases the levels of insulin, cytokines, and cortisol.
All of these contribute to gaining weight, and to type 2 diabetes.
Since there is a strong connection between stress, blood sugar problems
and gaining weight, you must be careful about managing stress. Even
though we realize you cannot completely eliminate it, you can still
control it. Try getting massages, practicing yoga, deep breathing
exercise, and lots of laughing.
