There is no medical cure for diabetes, and medication for diabetes is highly costly and in most cases, diabetes is a life long condition once is diagnosed . The good news is that adulthood diabetes is highly preventable!Insulin is a costly medication for diabetics only.
Can we stop diabetes from developing?
Yes, because type 2 diabetes is largely preventable with diet. Type 2 diabetes used to be called adult onset diabetes, and is striking people at younger and younger ages with rates skyrocketing globally. About 9 cases in 10 could be avoided by taking this several simple steps: Know how type 2 diabetes develops, keep weight under control, exercise more, eat healthy on regular basis, and quit smoking. If you have pre diabetes, take this steps to stop progression. If you are healthy, always take these steps to never develop type 2 diabetes.
1. Get involved to know how it develops.
Knowing how it develops can better assist us in preventing type 2 diabetes. Some conditions prevail before the development of type 2 diabetes. For example, our blood sugar levels, also called glucose level, change all the time when we eat and when we exercise. Usually, our body registers normal levels of blood sugar after a meal, but unhealthy foods can havoc our body capacity to control sugar levels in the blood. Conditions such as Hypoglycemia (low glucose levels makes us feel tired after a meal or after exercise), Hyperglycemia (high blood glucose levels in blood -makes us feel irritable and could trigger headaches after a meal ), these are common signals. Also the belly fat around the waist can mean we have become Insulin resistance, which is the inability to produce hormones that help you burn fat. All these conditions are underlying causes of a very common condition called Metabolic Syndrome, setting ground for the development of Type 2 diabetes.
2. Prevention is always better than treatment.
Prevention is always the best way to avoid diabetes. Later is too late and very expensive to treat.
Maintaining an adequate MBI (Body Mass Index) and a healthy fit lifestyle, is by far the best way to prevent the onsets of a Metabolic Syndrome and diabetes type 2. Eating regular healthy foods, such as meals and snacks, is an important part of a fit lifestyle. But what is healthy foods really?
Many times what we think is healthy is actually not so healthy. Products containing ingredients that can simulate our hormones can be detrimental, pesticides are greatly cancer causing, GMO have no conclusive scientific studies and the effect on human health is unclear; on top of this, highly processed ingredients are usually toxic to our health; and therefore, all these are increasing our risk of developing many health problem, like diabetes.
