Diabetes is related to the mismanagement of insulin by the body. Inability or improper use of insulin by the body can lead to high glucose levels, which is generally not healthy.
A common factor for diabetes is being overweight. As the statistics on the number of overweight people in America rises, they directly correlate to a rise in the number of diabetics. About 20 million people in America are diabetic. Statistics also estimate that an additional 54 million are pre-diabetics, people who are prone to being diabetic because of slightly higher than normal glucose levels.
Helping the Body to Regulate Normal Glucose Levels
Often being diagnosed with diabetes requires a change in lifestyle and practicing positive self-discipline as you choose what you can or cannot eat. Doctors tell diabetics to avoid foods like potatoes, rice, white flour, processed sugars, and processed foods as they can raise your glucose levels.
Keeping your weight in check can help to minimize weight-related implications on health. Include a good exercise routine of at least 30 minutes a day. A brisk walk can also help get the circulation going. Exercise is necessary for proper blood flow and to ensure all our organs get sufficient oxygen to function well.
Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables with lean protein. Eat an adequate amount of dietary fiber-as fiber helps supply the liver with nutrients that help regulate glucose levels in the body! Green Tea is an herb that has shown some positive results in helping the body regulate normal glucose levels.
