Diabetes Needs a Cure. That always seems to be a question that’s asked when someone is diagnosed with diabetes. Is there a cure for the disease, and what are my possibilities for reversing this dreaded disease? The more you listen to the news, the more confused you become and everywhere you search for information in regards to diabetes, you seem to get so many different opinions and you don’t know which to believe.
The word Diabetes can bring a building down and cause great men to sweat about not understanding how this disease attacks the body like no other.
The good news is that it can be cured. But the main issue is are you able to follow the program that’s required to overcome this disease? Follow it only if you want to have a long, healthy life.
Controlling your diabetes comes down to 3 things: Diet, Exercise and Weight Control
There’s really not a magic bullet, it just takes dedication in wanting to change for the better and understand that how implementing small changes can benefit your life in ways you never thought.
The one thing about losing weight is that it can have a dramatic affect on lowering your blood sugar. A weight loss of 10-30 pounds can drop your A1C level if it’s high – about 8.8 to 5.6 in approx. 3 months time. To get this type of result it takes commitment on your part and knowing that it’s possible and obtainable if you commit to the program.
How you get there and stay there is entirely a personal choice.
The goal should be to change your eating patterns, implement an exercise program that is tailored just for you – you can do 5-45 min a day of any kind of physical activity; it’s known to help lower high blood sugar.
The one thing to always remember is there are prescription and nonprescription medications that can raise blood sugar, so if you’re taking any type of statins be sure to ask questions about your medication to see if it’s possibly causing your blood sugar to be high.
My new book, “47 Tips to Reverse Your Diabetes” provides some excellent information on reversing diabetes and understanding how food plays a major part in the reversal process.
