Control diabetes with diet, exercise, and weight loss
According to the US Department of Health and human services, nearly 7,000,000 people in the United States suffer from diabetes , which now is the sixth leading cause of death among Americans. Practitioners of alternative medicine like myself combine diet, exercise and weight loss is to help control diabetes and prevent or delay the onset of serious complications.
Non-insulin-dependent adult onset diabetes otherwise known as type II, is a chronic degenerative disease caused by lack of, or resistance to, the hormone insulin, which is essential for the proper metabolism of blood sugar or glucose. Normally blood sugars rises after meal as glucose is absorbed into the bloodstream, causing the pancreas to produce enough insulin to return the blood sugar level to its normal range. Diabetic individuals are either unable to produce insulin, whether cells have become resistant to insulin and they are unable to move glucose from the bloodstream to the cells, and thus cannot maintain a normal blood glucose level.
Excess glucose in the bloodstream is toxic, and that excess glucose in diabetics can diminish the biological effectiveness of various proteins in the body. In type II diabetes, the pancreas still produces insulin, but the cells are resistant to its action and therefore cannot absorb the glucose produced by food intake. The cells of the body may also be unable to properly utilize insulin in the absorption of glucose from the bloodstream. Often type II diabetes can be remedied by dietary management, exercise, and weight control.
Oral medications prescribed to stimulate the body to produce more insulin can also be used until blood sugar levels are brought to normal or stabilized. According to several leading diabetic doctors prescription drugs for diabetes are not the best way to treat this condition. These prescribed medications have side effects, that may make them more harmful to the body than the condition of diabetes itself.
There are natural products that do not have the side effects of the prescribed drugs such as Gluco-Beta stimulator, pancreas DB liquescence, and PROZN-him and him GL plus that combine select nutrients and herbs to help regulate blood sugar levels in people with elevated blood sugar found in pre-diabetics and diabetics. Hyperglycemia or diabetes is problematic over time because can cause organ, nerve, and cellular damage. This can lead to heart and kidney disease, atherosclerosis, hypertension, strokes, cataracts, retinal hemorrhages, neuropathies, gangrenous infections or cuts or sores, loss of hearing, blindness, and even death.
