Type 2 Diabetes:

      Type 2 diabetes is one of the most serious health threats we face today. Approximately 171 million people around the world have diabetes. And if present trends continue, that number is expected to more than double, to 366 million, in 25 years.

      Natural Methods for Managing Or Avoiding Type 2 Diabetes
      The good news is, type 2 diabetes can be managed and even avoided by making simple changes to your lifestyle. For example:

      • A low-glycemic load diet rich in whole grains, fruits and vegetables, nuts, and “good fats” such as olive oil has been shown to be effective in regulating blood sugar and weight loss
      • Dietary supplements and herbs may have a positive effect on people with diabetes. For instance, alpha-lipoic acid may improve cellular response to insulin and promote glucose uptake in muscle. Magnesium affects the way the body uses glucose and is often deficient in people with diabetes. Omega-3 fatty acids are important to a number of functions and may improve the risk of heart disease, reduce inflammation and lower triglyceride levels.
      • Regular, moderate exercise of just 30 minutes a day has been shown to have a beneficial effect on insulin sensitivity, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels.
      • Alternative therapies may be beneficial in helping to relieve symptoms associated with diabetes. For instance, acupuncture and biofeedback may relieve the pain from nerve damage caused by diabetes, or neuropathy.

      If you’re concerned about diabetes, talk to your healthcare provider. He or she can use a simple blood test to determine whether you have this disease or are at risk of developing it. Together, you can develop a lifestyle-modification program to help you get back on the road to good health.
