Prevent diabetes by looking out for the following activators
What is type-2 diabetes?
Type-2 diabetes is a chronic condition that happens because of high sugar (glucose) levels in your blood.
The hormone, Insulin, is responsible to move glucose out of the bloodstream and into your cells. When you have type-2 diabetes, your cells do not respond well to insulin and the glucose does not get delivered to your cells, instead it builds up in your bloodstream.
The large amounts of glucose in your blood forces your pancreas to produce even more insulin. Over time your pancreas stops working properly, because of the overproduction of the hormone. Insulin production will decrease and there might not be enough insulin in your body to transport glucose.
It is unclear why cells become resistant to insulin. To prevent the onset of diabetes, you can be on the lookout for diabetes triggers.
Type-2 diabetes activators
Lifestyle triggers seem to be the most common type-2 diabetes activators, but other factors also play a role in the onset of diabetes.
Here are some prominent triggers for type-2 diabetes:
Weight and fat distribution
One of the biggest risk factors is being overweight or obese. It also matters where the fat in your body is distributed to. If fat is mainly stored in your abdomen, you are more likely to get diabetes.
A sedentary lifestyle
Physical activity regulates your weight and helps you use more glucose for energy. If you mostly sit still during the day, you are at risk.
You are more likely to get diabetes if there’s a genetic predisposition to developing type 2 diabetes in your family or if there’s a genetic predisposition to developing obesity in your family.
Race and ethnicity
It is unclear why certain people groups are more likely to develop diabetes. If you are Black, Hispanic, Native American, Asian or of Alaska Native descent, you are more at risk.
The risk of type 2 diabetes increases as you get older, especially after the age of 45.
If you’ve developed gestational diabetes when you were pregnant or if you gave birth to a baby weighing more than 4 kilograms, you are at risk of developing type-2 diabetes.
Blood lipid levels
Low levels of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol are a type-2 diabetes trigger.
Type-2 diabetes can affect your health in many ways.
There are numerous potential complications which include:
- Heart and blood vessel disease. (Learn about the diabetes heart attack risk…)
- Nerve damage (neuropathy) in limbs. (Read about numbness and tingling caused by diabetes…)
- Kidney disease. (Learn more about diabetes and kidney disease…)
- Eye damage. (Learn how diabetes can damage our eyes…)
- Skin conditions like bacterial and fungal infections. (Learn how diabetes damages the skin…)
- Slow healing of cuts and sores.
- Hearing impairment. (Learn how diabetes damages our hearing…)
- Sleep apnea.
Not all diabetes patients need to take insulin. If you do need to take insulin, it’s because your pancreas can’t produce the needed amount of the hormone. There are various medications your doctor can prescribe for type 2 diabetes. However, you can also fight diabetes by changing your lifestyle.
Healthy lifestyle choices can help prevent the onset of type-2 diabetes. Making healthier decisions after being diagnosed can also slow the progression of diabetes even if you have a genetic predisposition to developing the disease.
You can make the following lifestyle changes:
Change your diet.
Eat more fibre-rich foods and healthy carbohydrates and eat less refined carbohydrates, sweets, and animal fats. A fibre-rich diet will help keep your blood glucose levels stable.
If you avoid skipping meals, you can minimize spikes in your blood glucose levels.
It takes time to notice that you are full. Eating slowly will give your body the needed time to register that you are satisfied. Taking time to enjoy each bite will help you to not overeat.
You don’t have to exercise to the point of exhaustion, you just need to get your heart pumping. It is best to do aerobic exercises, like running, swimming, dancing, or taking a brisk walk for about 30 minutes each day.
Don’t sit still for too long.
Interrupt long sedentary stretches by taking a stroll through the garden, hanging up the washing or sweeping the floor. Try to get active every 30 minutes.
Although it is unclear what causes your cells to become resistant to insulin, there are many factors that can activate the onset of diabetes. Lifestyle triggers seem to be the most common type-2 diabetes activators. If you can change your lifestyle, you can prevent the onset of the disease or if you’ve already been diagnosed, you can delay its development.
Take Manna Blood Sugar Support
The Manna Blood Sugar Support is the ultimate natural supplement to control your blood sugar levels and make the prevention or treatment of diabetic neuropathy much more effective.
It does this by stabilizing your blood sugar levels and cutting the problem off at its roots.
How does the Manna Blood Sugar Support work?
Manna Blood Sugar Support gels with the food we eat and then slow-releases the sugar from this food into the bloodstream. What this means is that the blood sugar levels in the body do not get a sudden spike, and there is no need for the pancreas to release a bunch of insulin.
The Manna Blood Sugar Support is an all-natural health supplement made from the pods of the Prosopis (Mesquite) tree, which means that it does not have any negative side effects like many chemical alternatives have.
It also offers you other benefits like sustained energy due to the slow release of sugar into the body, and it helps to eliminate cravings if you might be looking to lose weight.
Another thing to do when trying to get your blood sugar levels stable is to stop fighting the incredible effects of the Manna Blood Sugar Support by eating things that are constantly trying to shoot up your blood sugar levels. Follow a healthy diet like the one found in the Manna Diet e-book
However, if you do decide to be a bit naughty and have an unhealthy takeaway or a chocolate every once in a while, take a Manna Blood Sugar Support tablet or two with it, and it will help keep the blood sugar spike under a bit more control.
That is why the Manna Blood Sugar Support really is a No-Brainer product for anybody and everybody.
