Diabetes is basically a chronic metabolic disorder in which the body fails to convert sugars, starches and other foods into energy.
Many of the foods you eat are normally converted into a type of sugar called glucose during digestion. The bloodstream then carries glucose through the body. The hormone, insulin, then turns glucose into quick energy or is stored for further use. In diabetic people, the body either does not make enough insulin or it cannot use the insulin correctly. This is why too much glucose builds in the bloodstream.
As we live in the 21st century, we usually do not have access to pure diets as our whole diet is genetically manufactured. With this increased growth in technology, some “unwanted” side effects also come into play.
In our diet, most items have a high percentage of sugar in them, due to which people are having a very common disease which is diabetes.
Fortunately aside from insulin injection and medication, there are other natural WAYS to manage your diabetes condition.
Fruits such as blueberries, strawberries, mango that comes with high antioxidant should be included as part of diabetes diet. Diabetics especially need foods high in antioxidants for repair of damaged tissues. The rates of wear and tear which lead to organ failures in diabetics are higher than in other people. So, ensuring that you get enough antioxidants in your daily diet plays a vital role in controlling your diabetes disorder.
Oat bran cereal. Avoid those sugar coated cereals that are geared towards captivating kids’ tastes. They are counterproductive to any weight control efforts and only make how to control diabetes worse. I found that whole oats is better than regular oats. In general, the less processing put into preparing and preserving the food, the better it is for us.
Eat smaller meals more often during the day will also be a huge benefit. Large meals stress your digestive system and can spike your blood sugar levels. It’s better to eat several small meals, or ‘graze’ on small portions during the day. Your insulin levels will be more even, and you’ll benefit from higher metabolism as well.
Food supplement. I use a fucoidan-rich seaweed supplement quite frequently as well as Milagro de la Selva tea. I drink 1 cup of this tea approximately 30 minutes before each meal to effectively control my diabetes.
Researchers suggest a minimum of 10 to 12 minutes of aerobic activity is needed for it to be effective. For example, people with diabetes and who are able to walk, would see a significant improvement in how to control diabetes if they decided to walk for 30 to 60 minutes every day for a few weeks.
