 Strategies for Diabetes

Diabetes is characterized by varying degrees of carbohydrate intolerance due to insufficient insulin production by the beta cells of the liver, arms or insulin islets, insensitivity of body cells, but also other glandular organs and body tissues. Also included in tissues. Common symptoms of diabetes are sugar in the urine, high blood sugar, excessive thirst, excessive hunger, muscle wasting, weight loss, and weakness.

Diabetes is closely related to obesity. At least 80 percent of all diabetics are or were obese. Consumption of refined carbohydrates appears to be a major contributing factor to obesity. The pancreas secretes insulin to help the body absorb sugar into the cells. If the pancreas isn't working at its best, there won't be enough insulin to get sugar into the cells, which builds up sugar, which can lead to more heart disease. The excess sugar will then also turn into fat.

A good diabetes regimen excludes all refined foods such as sugar, sweets, pastries, white flour products and white rice. It replaces them with natural high-fiber carbohydrates that take longer to digest. The key is to provide the body with slow-burning fuel that won't cause a sudden spike in blood sugar and therefore the need for extra insulin. All meals should always be kept small and taken six times a day. At most 75% of the diet should consist of raw foods.

Your doctor will tell you that the most important thing you can do besides eating well is exercise. Through exercise, your body can absorb many extra sugars without using insulin. So good health takes hard work, but eating well, exercising and having a positive mental attitude will make all the difference.
