One: Understand Diabetes and Symptoms
You understand diabetes and its symptoms. You have to understand why you develop diabetes. You have to learn why some people develop diabetes while others don’t. Furthermore, some people develop type 1, while others have type 2 diabetes.
Diabetes is mainly considered a metabolic disease due to insulin resistance. It lowers the ability of your cells to take in the sugar because they become resistant to the effects of insulin.
If you imagine you’re living in a community or a residential area where every week, the city brings and leaves a sugar load on your doorstep. You’re so happy with the free sugar. Then, you put these loads of sugar inside your house. It’s full of sugar loads after a week unexpectedly. You can no longer put additional sugar loads because your place is already full of them. There is no space left.
The next thing you have to do is to leave those sugar outside your house on the streets. When they’re on the streets, the city will dump them anyway. These sugars flowing outside are causing havoc.
In the same way, you consider your house to be your cells in the different organs and tissues of your body. The dump truck is the system dumping the sugar into your circulating blood. When the cell “house” opens the door with the help of insulin, the sugar comes in. At some point, the cells no longer take more sugar, shutting themselves off. These cells stop their receptors from responding to the effects of insulin.
Sugar in Circulation
Now sugar is circulating in your blood, getting all the ill effects. You feel more hungry than usual, which may cause gain or loss of weight. You may often pee or have blood pressure issues. You may also have kidney issues, and you might start feeling lethargic. Your body cannot utilize sugar in your blood, and many symptoms will show.
Two: Monitor Blood Sugar Levels
You monitor your blood sugar levels regularly. When you watch your blood sugar levels, you’re conscious of what you’re eating. You also match them to your diet. You’ll be able to indicate what increases your blood sugar and maintains it.
You adjust your diet to manage diabetes based on your blood sugar level. You can know when you handle it well, for you can even start lowering the doses of medication.
Three: Exercise Regularly
You need to exercise regularly. When you exercise like walking, you utilize sugar stored in your body. Your body feels better because it gets rid of the stored sugar. It will help you stay active and even lose weight.
Four: Check Blood Pressure
Next, check your blood pressure and cholesterol levels when they increase, for you will have diabetes. When you do this, you prevent many complications.
Six: Visit a Health Professional
Lastly, you should get a regular checkup with a health professional. If you want to reverse your diabetes, seek a FUNCTIONAL medicine practitioner.
