Reversing Diabete

Nov 2, 2007
There may be a few doctors who claim there are ways of reversing diabetes, but the overwhelming evidence suggests that once a person has diabetes, they will be a diabetic the rest of their life. While there are some ways that eating right and exercising can reduce the potential for a person to contract the ailment, along with genetic predisposition, once the body stops making insulin, reversing diabetes is probably not going to be possible. The most common form of the disease is Type 2 diabetes, also known as adult onset diabetes, and in many cases early tests can indicate pre diabetes, indicating that diabetes is in the future. While many things can contribute to a person's susceptibility of this turning into diabetes, there are steps they can take for reversing diabetes in this stage. When too much blood is stored in the body and there is no way to clean it out, diabetes is a foregone conclusion. However, changing dietary habits and getting more exercise can reduce the chance of that happening. Thinking about the causes of diabetes, including a sedentary lifestyle, eating a diet mainly of processed food and loads of glucose, the body may not stand a chance in fighting off diabetes. However, a change in the way a person lives can affect their chance of being diagnosed with diabetes and reversing diabetes in its early stages is possible.

A person prone to developing diabetes include those who age 45 or older, overweight will little exercise, are genetically predisposed, meaning one or both parents had diabetes and have high cholesterol or high triglycerides. Knowing they have these potential factors for the ailment, reversing diabetes should start at an early age. Taking steps before the disease becomes apparent is one method of reversing diabetes that many people fail to recognize. In addition to have the chance of reversing diabetes, the lifestyle chances can be beneficial for overall health as well. Exercising will not only help a person lose weight, but will also increase the level of good cholesterol in the body. Medication may be needed to reduce high cholesterol and triglycerides, but a good nutritional diet may decrease the need for medication.

It is important that everyone gets adequate amounts of protein, for the amino acids into which protein is broken down are used by the body to synthesize proteins for cellular repair and growth, as well as functional proteins like enzymes and hemoglobin. For people with diabetes, it is important for other reasons as well. Unlike carbohydrate, protein doesn't cause an immediate elevation in blood sugar, so replacing fast-burning carbohydrate with protein helps with blood sugar control. However, protein can raise blood sugar several hours after eating, as some amino acids are converted in the liver into glucose. This is good, for it prevents between-meal hypoglycemia, or low blood sugar, which, if low enough, can be quite serious. When a person diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes considers altering their lifestyle and medication in hopes of reversing diabetes, they should always do so under the watchful eye of their physician. The effects of diabetes can be debilitating as well as potentially fatal, if left to its own devices.
