How To Cure Pre
How To Reverse Pre-Diabetes Naturally
Body and Health matters affect us
Have you been diagnosed with pre-diabetes
and you're wanting to know
what it's all about, or maybe you think you may be heading that way and
most importantly you're asking can it
The main thing to know is that you're lucky you caught it early enough
as the condition is totally reversable, but before explaining to you
what you can do to avoid full blown diabetes, let's take a look at what
it's all about.
So what is pre
Pre-diabetes is the first
stepping stone leading to type 2
itself because of raised blood sugar levels which produces the
following symptoms of pre diabetes in adults and now is effecting teens
and even younger people who are heading for this condition through
being overweight through too much consumption of the modern day diet:
In more progressed cases you may have
tingling sensations in your feet and blurred vision.
What these symptoms show is that your
insulin production is being
slowed down from either being a bit overweight, reaching old age where
your organs are slowing down generally or you
have been eating the wrong type of foods for most of your life, that
way gradually shutting down your inner organs production of much needed
compounds and hormones.
- You are constantly thirsty.
- You pee a lot because of the
- You've put weight on or
you may have started to lose
- You're constantly tired and
- Your sexual desire has reduced
or gone altogether.
- You may be always hungry.
- You may not be sleeping too
A simple blood screening test can show a raised blood sugar level.
Your blood carries round in it
a certain amount of glucose
(referred to as sugar) to provide energy so your body can function
properly and insulin reacts with this blood glucose to
allow it to get through cell walls and also feed your muscles.
Pre-diabetes is the
condition leading to type 2 diabetes, usually found
in 'plump' people, and it is a warning you need to lose some weight,
take up a little exercise and cut down on certain high calorie foods.
This 'plumpness' means your inner body cavity (holding most
of your organs) is filled with fat which stifles organ production, the
pancreas in this case amongst others, meaning you don't get the
required insulin into your bloodstream when high sugar spikes are
On top of this your kidneys and liver are constantly pumping out
glucose into your bood stream even when you sleep, building the
levels higher and for that reason, your blood carries the surplus sugar
to your bladder,
which in turn makes you want to pee more while your brain is telling
you to dilute the blood by drinking
This constant pumping can be reduced by eating certain foods which is a
big help in keeping your blood sugar levels down as can be seen in this
video on controlling
pre diabetes and type 2 diabetes.
The problem with having high blood sugar levels is your circulation
gets blocked up and poor circulation causes nerve damage in the
extremities (feet and hands) so you are not aware of wound
infections through a lack of sensation which
in turn can require amputations, along with lots of
other bodily problems.
It's a bleak picture, but by taking action now you can avoid this
The wrong foods means high calorie, full of saturated fats like
burgers, sausages, fast foods, that type of thing, along with a need to
down on pizzas, salt, trans fats like margarines and mixed cooking
alcohol and chemical additives.
By eating right with plenty of the following totally natural foods you
will reduce your risk of developing type 2 diabetes and at the same
time reduce your blood pressure:
Dried fruit tends to be more sugary as the
content of the fruit has been evaporated off, meaning the natural
remaining sugars are more concentrated, although small quantities of
dried fruits are fine as our bodies developed over centuries
these fruits in their natural form.
- fresh greens
- freshly juiced fruit and veg
- plenty of purified water
Pre Diabetes Foods To
Neat alcohol reduces your blood sugar
levels a little, although the carbohydrate in some (beers)
raises your blood sugar
and either way it raises your tryglyceride
levels (bad fats in your blood), your blood pressure and also makes you
want to eat to excess.
- Sugary drinks like sweet tea
or coffee, soda and packaged fruit juice.
- Any factory sweetened product.
- Any 'low fat' or 'diet'
product, as these usually have added sugar to give the product
some body - manufacturers don't tell you this - think yoghurt as an
example. Again natural is fine.
- Keep away from anything made
up of wheat - or cut down on it - like pasta and white bread.
- Limit your potatoes as these
are full of carbohydrates.
- Do keep away from excesses of
bananas as they are full of carbohydrates (calories).
Do try to get a regular good night's sleep, preferably around eight
hours worth otherwise this will effect your natural glucose control.
Smoking is a no-no as well as this antagonises the body's self repair
hormone emmisions from your pituitary gland which is the keystone of
bodily function in the long run. Smoking effects you eyes, circulation,
kidneys, heart and causes nerve damage, all associated with long term
diabetes developments, regardless of the well known lung or throat damage.
There are certain supplements that are supposed to be of benefit to
help reduce your blood sugar or improve insulin sensitivity, more than
likely the same natural sources a type 2 diabetic's medication is made
from and they are as follows:
There are others, but having a sensible
varied diet, keeping away from trans fats and high calorie foods while
exercising moderately for half an hour per day, no need for anything
strenuous, will get the weight off as natural foods and a little
exercise will allow your
thyroid (amongst other organs) to return production to how it
should be and that way speed up your metabolism, which in turn will
help with weight loss and reduce your risk of developing from
pre-diabetes to type 2 diabetes.
- Bitter lemon - lowers blood
sugar levels and has beneficial antioxidants
- Fenugreek - lowers blood sugar
level, increases insulin sensitivity and improves insulin production
- Alpha-Lipoic acid - improves
- Ginseng - well used by the
Chinese for diabetes control
- Gymnema Sylvestre - a very
powerful herb for pre-diabetes control
One more thing, don't go in for rapid weight loss as your body will
react to this by putting more weight on once you come off the diet,
unless you go in for a small routine change of diet like
It took a
long time to gain that weight, so a prolonged and steady attack is the
best form of defence against any approaching diabetes.
