5 Common Misconceptions About Diabetes

5 Common Misconceptions About Diabetes

Diabetes is usually associated with high blood sugar levels, taking insulin injections, and not being able to eat sweets.

But the fact is that there are different types of diabetes and they affect people in different ways.

So without beating around the bush any further, lets take a look at the different types of diabetes, what causes them, and what does NOT cause them.


Here are 5 common misconceptions about diabetes and why they aren’t quite true…

Misconception 1: Type 1 Diabetes is Caused by Diet

Type 1 diabetes results from the body not producing enough insulin, a hormone the body needs to convert starches, sugar and other foods into energy. When you suffer from this condition, your pancreas can no longer produce insulin. So injections of insulin through a pen or pump are needed to help keep the blood sugar levels in check. Type 1 diabetes is usually discovered early in children. Nearly 90 percent of these cases don’t have any associated family history with it. Unfortunately, researchers haven’t discovered how to prevent Type 1 diabetes. We do know, however, that it is not caused by how much sugar a person eats. Many parents blame themselves when their kid gets diagnosed with the disease, but the truth is, a person cannot eat his or her way to this type of diabetes. Though eating sugary cereals or drinking sweetened soft drinks is not the healthiest option for anyone, the bottom line is, consuming sugar is not the reason for Type 1 diabetes. 

Note: When people with type 1 diabetes take the Manna Blood Sugar Support supplement in conjunction with their insulin, they might need to reduce the amount of insulin injected. Talk to your healthcare provider before making adjustments to insulin dosage.

Misconception 2: People with diabetes cannot eat sugar

This is not entirely true, but staying away from sugar as far as possible is recommended. In contrast to Type 1 Diabetes, Type 2 occurs because the body does not use insulin properly and the blood sugar level is higher than normal. Eat a well-rounded, healthy diet with particular attention to portion control. Its not necessary to completely cut out sugar, just have it in moderation. The diet for a person with diabetes is similar to the heart-healthy diet, which includes fruits and other sugars in a healthy quantity along with vegetables, lean meats and whole grains. 

Misconception 3: Insulin is the last treatment for diabetes

One might believe that insulin is the last resort after all else has failed to manage a persons diabetes. The truth is that insulin is prescribed very easily. However, this should not be the case. There are so many steps that can be taken like following a balanced diet, being more active, and reducing sugar intake before having to look at insulin as a solution. There are also great natural supplements that help your body cope with balancing blood sugar levels and insulin rather than just pumping in extra insulin. Take a look at the Manna Blood Sugar Support supplement.
Taking these with each meal helps to minimize the use of insulin, have better blood sugar control, and prevent any diabetic related health complications. 

Misconception 4: Being out of control is part of diabetes

New treatments and technology have put the control of managing diabetes directly in the hands of the patient. While most people think its normal for glucose levels to jump around inconsistently, there are tools that allow doctors to match a treatment plan with each individuals lifestyle. Even something as simple as changing lifestyle and diet for the better can give someone so much more control over their diabetes. Nobody should ever feel like they aren’t able to manage their diabetes. 

Misconception 5: Artificial sweeteners are better for you than sugar

This relates back to myth No. 2 and involves people trying to find ways to satisfy their sweet tooth while still (mistakenly) avoiding sugars altogether. Many sugar-free foods actually have sugar alcohols in them. They may not raise sugar levels as high, but there are other side effects that can affect your stomach and intestinal system. The best strategy is to take artificial sugars out of your diet altogether. If you’re going to eat sugar, get it from natural sweeteners or fruit, but be mindful of your portion intake.


The most effective way to treat insulin resistance is by making healthy lifestyle changes.

These changes include:

  • Eating Healthy

This does not mean you have to eat salad 3 times a day. It is all about following a balanced, healthy eating plan that is sustainable in the long run. A great example of such an eating plan is the Manna Diet which is available as a FREE downloadable eBook.

  • Exercising

There are countless different exercise routines. And everybody prefers a different one. The main thing is to find an exercise that you enjoy so that you don’t quit after the first week. So whether you like to go to the gym, cycle, swim, or hike make sure to get active for at least 30 minutes, 4 times a week.
