How to Reverse Type 2 Diabetes Naturally
This is an interesting article from the Diet Doctor regarding the Type 2 diabetes, which is by far the most common form (around 90% of all cases) and the one which is increasing the most. It primarily affects overweight people in middle age or later. It’s not uncommon for the affected person to also have high blood pressure and an abnormal lipid profile. Gestational diabetes is a temporary special case of type 2 diabetes.
In type 2 diabetes the body has an increasingly harder time to handle all the sugar in the blood. Large amounts of the blood sugar-lowering hormone insulin are produced, but it’s still not enough, as insulin sensitivity decreases. At the time of being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, people usually have ten times more insulin in their bodies than normal.2 As a side effect, this insulin stores fat and causes weight gain, something that has often been in progress for many years before the disease was diagnosed.
Why do more and more people get type 2 diabetes today? You’ll know why when you are done reading this page. A clue: the disease was once in many languages called sugar disease. So, how do we reduce the blood sugar (cara menurunkan gula darah)?
Reversed dietary guidelines
Dietary advice has in recent decades looked similar in all of the Western world. While more and more people gotten type 2 diabetes, and while the affected have become sicker and sicker, they’ve been advised to eat the very foods that raise blood sugar.
Normalize your blood sugar
What happens if you remove the blood sugar-raising foods? What’s left then?
Many people with type 2 diabetes are now choosing to eat foods that don’t raise blood sugar. They often notice that starting with the first meal, their blood sugar improves. The need for medications, especially insulin, is dramatically reduced. Substantial weight loss usually follows. Finally, they usually feel a lot better, more alert and improve many health markers.
More and more doctors advise similarly with great results. More and more people question the old blood sugar-raising carbohydrate-rich advice, even in the media.
Since the Fall of 2011, the Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare has recommended a low-carbohydrate diet with diabetes. There’s a big change in the air today and you do not have to wait.
Here’s the list of recommended nutrient-dense diabetes foods: Butter, olive oil, cheese, meat, fish, eggs…
This sounds familiar. If we just add generous amounts of vegetables this will be low-carb foods. This is the advice the Diet Doctors give with type 2 diabetes.
This is the advice that people with type 2 diabetes received a hundred years ago. Even in Sweden, with the high fat-Petrén diet that included fatty pork cuts, butter, and green cabbage. And when they start eating this way today the same thing happens as it did in the past. Their blood sugar levels improve dramatically from day one. This makes sense, as they avoid eating what raises blood sugar.
Most overweight people will then gradually lose a substantial amount of weight and will be able to do well with less medication.
So why don’t more people get the chance?
Today’s carbohydrate-rich dietary advice to people with type 2 diabetes is based on the old fear of naturally fatty foods. There are no quality studies showing that a carbohydrate-rich diet is beneficial.
