But let’s not con ourselves, they would still have needed to take care of the basics, which have not changed since diabetes was first regarded as a disease. If you too want to treat diabetes too, your starting points should be the just the same as ever –
To Deal Effectively With Diabetes – First, deal with Your Weight If you are obese, the risk of you developing diabetes is greater than for someone/anyone who isn’t overweight. Otherwise type 2 diabetes can loom like a grim phantom over your future!
Type 2 diabetes, (often described as “adult onset diabetes”) is far more often found in overweight people than in those of ‘normal’ weight. About 90% of Type 2 diabetes victims are of above average weight, and their immediate reaction to having diabetes should be to get their weight under proper control.
Fashion Your Own Personal Diabetes Management System It is particularly important to rein in your dietary excesses if there is a proven family history of diabetes, or you are getting older, are overweight or you also have another diabetes-related condition.
If you can handle this, and also use other accepted diabetes management techniques (which I’ll return to later), you may be able to ward off diabetes before it takes a firm hold. You may even be able to reverse it.
Being overweight can also lead to other well known Contributory Factors. Obesity often leads on to another contributory and dangerous medical condition: high blood pressure (also known as hypertension). Over 40% of Type 2 Diabetes sufferers have raised blood pressure, which is believed to be aggravated being overweight or obese. It can also lead to insulin resistance, where your body can no longer properly process insulin, and so it cannot manufacture body-fuel.
Begin Your Fight-Back, and Manage Your Diabetes If you’ve been diagnosed as a Type 2 diabetes victim (or even advised that you are at in danger of it), you can help yourself. To start the ball rolling, if you are overweight, just lose ten pounds. Then – (yes, you guessed it), do it again and lose at least another ten pounds (painless the second time around!) If you acknowledge that you really are overweight and are truly at risk of diabetes, this is the single most important thing that you can do to make a real difference – and it’s (reasonably) easy!
I know weight loss is no pleasure. But you need to get started as soon as you accept you have a problem. If you don’t start to recover your health while you can still do so, you will massively reduce your chances of living a long and rewarding life.
If you let your diabetes take over your life, it may ultimately end it!
Create Your Own personal Diabetes Management Plan? It is now totally possible to be a diabetes sufferer and eat well, (and you can begin by getting yourself a really good diabetic cook book). Overweight diabetes sufferers invariably have quite strict dietary requirements, and if you’ve been diagnosed diabetic or pre-diabetic you will want to follow your diabetic diet particularly carefully. It’s difficult to start with, but then it becomes increasingly easy.
Expand and Improve Your Diabetes Management Plan Try to be more energetic. There are plenty of enjoyable AND healthy outdoor activities – get out in the fresh air and actually enjoy them. Remember, even if you only go out for a game of bowls- it’s a great start.
Get some healthy sun, get lots of fresh air, start rambling, (and build up the distances, over days or weeks). Try golf or riding, possibly get a bike, or begin swimming. Get some wearying exercise at least once or twice every day.
It is finally possible to Beat Diabetes For some diabetes sufferers (now ex-sufferers), diabetes is no longer the enemy it used to be. There are now actually diabetes sufferers who have created their own systems to effectively rid themselves of this terrible disease.
It is now possible for you to develop your own effective diabetes treatment, by learning from someone who has already succeeded in creating their own personal cure to end their diabetes. If you too want to get control of your body and beat your diabetes, help is now available.
