With the ease and availability of fast food, and sweet treats of all sorts, Type 2 Diabetes (T2D) is rising at a ridiculous rate.
Diet and exercise play a significant role to reducing future risk of T2D. You may not be experiencing symptoms now, and think you may be invinsible the disease, but the reality is that if you regularly eat sugary foods, you may be setting yourself up for a diet induced disease.
Diet - it has been shown that a diet high in good quality vegetables, good fats, and protein can reduce the side effects of T2D and with exercise, in the early stages, it is possible to reverse T2D. Foods high in chromium (brazil nuts, broccoli, mushrooms, asparagus) and B vitamins are part of the glucose tolerance factor and enhance insulin activity.
Exercise and physical activity, especially weight bearing and resistance training improves blood glucose by reducing insulin resistance.
There has been some research on fibre, chromium, magnesium, and manganese. NutriKaneD is one product the has been showing positive results, and if you are suffering from T2D, this may well be worth giving a try.
