Control Diabetes Symptoms NATURALLY
If you have diabetes, controlling your blood sugar is your number one priority. The same is true if you’re prediabetic and in danger of developing the disease.
You can do that through the two D’s: DRUGS and DIET.
But those aren’t the only solutions that can have a meaningful impact on diabetes control and prevention.
You can fight insulin resistance and obtain better blood sugar balance NATURALLY.
A handful of potent natural nutrients can head off type 2 diabetes symptoms without resorting to MORE drugs or DRASTIC dieting.
Vitamin A can have a positive impact on type 2 diabetes. The vitamin plays a role in the accumulation of fat tissue (adipogenesis), the production of insulin (through pancreatic beta-cell function), and also HOW fat is created and used in the body (hepatic lipid metabolism).
I suggest you bump up your vitamin A levels through your diet by eating more liver, fish, eggs, and dairy. Leafy greens, orange and yellow veggies, and tomato products also contain carotenoids that your body converts into A.
Vitamin B1 or thiamine:
Studies find that diabetes is associated with low levels of thiamine (B1).
Thiamine directly affects carbohydrate metabolism, which is the process of breaking down food and using it for energy.
In one study, when people with diabetes took thiamine for just one month, they had significantly LOWER glucose levels.
You can also increase B1 levels by eating more pork, fish, flax seed, beans, and green peas.
Vitamin B6’s active form, PLP, contributes to glucose metabolism. Studies show a higher level of vitamin B6 is linked to a lower risk of diabetes.
Vitamin B6 supports nerve health and could help manage diabetic neuropathy.
In pregnant women with gestational diabetes, research shows vitamin B6 supplementation significantly lowers blood glucose levels.
Food sources of B6 include fish, beef liver, poultry, chickpeas, and dark leafy greens.
Folic acid (vitamin B9) supplements can lower homocysteine, fasting blood glucose, and glycosylated hemoglobin—all of which boost glycemic control.
Leafy green vegetables, beans, peanuts, sunflower seeds, eggs, and citrus fruits contain folate, the natural form of folic acid.
Vitamin D works in numerous ways to improve insulin sensitivity and glucose tolerance. And studies show that low vitamin D levels are connected to an increased risk of diabetes.
D lowers average blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes.
The BEST way to raise vitamin D levels is to spend MORE time outside in the sunshine. But supplements are also available.
P.S. Certain diabetes risk factors are obvious such as obesity. But researchers recently identified another BIG risk factor faced by up to 70 million Americans. Fixing this ONE problem can dramatically reduce your diabetes risk (no matter what you weigh).
“Effect of thiamine administration on metabolic profile, cytokine,s, and inflammatory markers in drug-naïve patients with type 2 diabetes. Eur J Nutr. 2011 Mar;50(2):145-9. doi: 10.1007/s00394-010-0123-x. Epub 2010 Jul 21. PMID: 20652275.
