Type 2 diabetes can be reversed (put into remission)
Reversing diabetes is a term that usually refers to a significant long-term improvement in insulin sensitivity in people with type 2 diabetes.
People with type 2 diabetes that are able to get their HbA1c below ( 5.7 %) without taking diabetes medication are said to have reversed or resolved their diabetes. This also known as putting diabetes into remission.
Loss of body weight can be particularly beneficial in helping to reverse the progression of diabetes.
With time and dedication, type 2 diabetes can be reversed and the results can be very rewarding, with less tiredness and better all-round health.
Understanding how diabetes progresses
The most common cause of type 2 diabetes is obesity-related, which generally follows a vicious cycle pattern:
• Diet high in calories -particularly if high in refined carbohydrates.
• Insulin levels in the bloodstream rise to cope with the high- and quick-acting carb intake.
• Weight is gained around the belly (central or truncal obesity).
• Consistently high insulin levels lead to the body’s cells becoming resistant to insulin and commonly lead to weight gain.
• High insulin levels also increase weight gain.
• Insulin resistance leads to an increase in blood sugar levels, particularly after meals.
• The pancreas produces more insulin to cope with rising blood sugar levels.
• High sugar levels lead to feelings of lethargy and high insulin levels lead to increased hunger.
• Hunger often leads to overeating and lethargy, with less physical activity being taken.
• Overeating, less activity and high insulin levels all lead to further weight gain and more insulin resistance.
• Consistently high demand on the pancreas to produce extra insulin leads to damage of the pancreas’ insulin-producing beta cells.
• Beta cell damage results in the body struggling to produce enough insulin, and steeper rises in blood sugar levels leads to more recognizable symptoms of diabetes, symptoms of diabetes, such as thirst and a frequent need to urinate
Breaking the progressive cycle of type 2 diabetes
To reverse diabetes, you need to be able to break this cycle by taking the strain off your insulin-producing cells.
Research indicates that effective ways to reverse diabetes include:
• Low-carbohydrate diets
• Very low calorie diets
• Intake of raw Fruits and Vegetables
Low-carbohydrate diets are known for lowering the amount of insulin the body needs to produce, resulting in less insulin resistance.
Commitment to exercise has allowed a number of people to successfully reverse their type 2 diabetes.
Exercise helps the body to become more sensitive to its insulin. In combination with a healthy diet, exercise can reduce the demand for insulin in the body and therefore help reverse diabetes.
There is a phrase that says ‘you can’t outrun a bad diet’ and there is a lot of truth in this. The people that have used exercise to reverse their diabetes have done so by combining exercise with healthy eating.
There have been a number of anecdotal accounts showing exercise to be linked with diabetes remission.
A study published in 2015 showed that 67% of participants were able to achieve partial remission of their type 2 diabetes having taken part in a six-month diet and exercise program. The participants in this study were newly diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.
Is it possible to reverse type 1 diabetes?
At the moment, type 1 diabetes cannot be reversed. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease, and reversing it would require a method of preventing the body’s immune system from attacking its own insulin-producing cells.
Diabetes can be reversed if you focus in six areas
1.physical Exercise 2 .Eat Right 3.Balance your stress 4.Good sleep 5. Avoid Insulin Resistance
6. Add Herbals , Phyto Nutrients and supplements to support your Pancreas to produce insulin , Regenerate Beta cells , Balance Glucose level , to reduce insulin resistance ,to avoid Diabetes complications, to increase immunity .
