Many people have been affected by type 2 diabetes. Research shows that the condition has tripled since 1980 and more than one-third of adults in America have it. The best thing about it is that the condition can be prevented and reversed with a healthy lifestyle. With the following steps, the condition can be reversed in a just a few weeks;
Reduce Your Sugar Intake
A diet that is full of empty calories, as well as refined carbohydrates and sugars that are quickly absorbed, will be converted to sugar and that will lead to the creation of high insulin levels. That will eventually cause insulin resistance thus type 2 diabetes. High insulin levels may also lead to high blood pressure and increased risk of cancer. Therefore, it is important to reduce your intake of anything that may cause the insulin levels to increase. That will help to reverse the impact of diabetes and obesity.
Take Unprocessed Foods
Whole, unprocessed foods have been found to balance the blood sugar. They also reduce inflammation and improve the detoxification of the liver hence facilitating the prevention or reversal of insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. It is advisable to take a variety of fruits and vegetables, olive oil, nuts, omega three fats, and seeds. When whole foods are taken, they promote a fast and healthy metabolism. When that happens, not only is insulin resistance and diabetes reversed, but aging and age-related diseases are also prevented.
Exercise benefits can’t be received only from the gym. You can do so much to exercise your body. A thirty minutes’ walk on a daily basis will be very beneficial to the body. Studies over time have shown that exercising regularly aids in balancing blood sugar and reducing insulin levels. For patients who are suffering from diabetes, exercise is mandatory because over time, the blood sugar will be stabilized and they will be diabetes free.
Get Enough Sleep
Many people may undermine the value of getting enough sleep in a day, but it is a key element to a healthy lifestyle. Lack of proper sleep damages the body metabolism. In addition to that, it will escalate the level of sugar and carb cravings. That will make you eat more, and you will be at a high risk of being obese and getting type 2 diabetes. It is therefore important to get eight hours of sleep daily. Create a routine so that your mind can adjust to it.
