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.

MRC of Vancouver started me going in my attempt to loose 30 years of weight gain!! I have been using their program for about 18 months and have actually lost 30 pounds. I have changed the way I eat. I've learned what foods are best for ME. By analyzing my DNA and hormones, they helped me learn to eat what was right for me. I have "tweeked" my purchases and preparation of food to make eating healthy and still fun for me. I eat lots of veggies and salads and include a healthy diet of protein. These are very satisfying. Do I "cheat" now and then? Yes, but I don't like how I feel after eating sugar and lots of carbs so I return to my good foods quickly and continue to see my weight drop. I walk my little dog four times a day and have a part-time job that allows me a lot of movement. I feel so healthy and wonderful. It's easy to continue to eat and live a more healthy lifestyle! When I confessed about eating the wrong "foods", the gals simply encouraged me and gave me fresh ideas to satisfy my taste buds. I always felt I could be honest during my consultations with no fear of being lectured! I plan to continue until I reach my desired weight. I expect to reach my goal by 2017. After I reach my weight goal, I plan to remain in good health with my new found healthy way of eating the calories I need to maintain my proper weight. My Dr. is very pleased at my progress. She wondered how I have lost 30 pounds.
