Can Lifestyle Changes Reverse Diabetes?
Diabetes cannot be cured. Caught in its earliest stages, diabetes can be brought under control and the person can live a normal life. If the disease is in an advanced state, nothing will be able to reverse the damage that has been caused. In most cases, individuals who are borderline diabetic can reduce the risk of progression by altering their lifestyle habits and taking the appropriate measures to keep their blood sugar levels under control.
Family History of Diabetes?
If a person has a past, family history of diabetes, they should begin taking precautions immediately. Reducing the amount of sugar and unhealthy fats in the diet is a big first step. It is also important to eat as many fresh fruits and vegetables as possible. This provides the nutrition the body needs to function more efficiently. While fresh fruits are abundant in sugars, they should be included in the diet in the right proportions. Many dieticians recommend two servings of vegetables to one serving of fruit.
Making Positive Lifestyle Changes
Getting a sufficient amount of exercise is also vitally important. Exercise burns off excess calories before they can be stored as fat in the tissues. It also helps to regulate the amount of blood sugar that is circulating through the body at any given time. Eating the right ratio of carbohydrates, proteins and fats and exercising often provides the ultimate balance between intake and use when it comes to both blood sugar and calories.
Making positive lifestyle habits early, enough may not stop diabetes from occurring, but it will control how quickly it progresses. Positive lifestyle habits that are included in a person's daily routine, soon become second nature and will help to maintain a person's health for many years to come.
