Holistic Prevention and Reversal of Diabetes and Its Complications

 Holistic prevention and treatment of diabetes and its complications

What is diabetes?

Diabetes is a condition with your body that causes blood glucose (sugar) levels to rise higher than normal. This is also called hyperglycemia. Type-2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes.

If you have type-2 diabetes your body does not use insulin properly. This is called insulin resistance. At first, your pancreas makes extra insulin to make up for it. But, over time it isn’t able to keep up and can’t make enough insulin to keep your blood glucose at normal levels.

What causes diabetes?

Usually a combination of things cause type 2 diabetes, including:

Genetics. Scientists have found different bits of DNA that affect how your body makes insulin.

Extra weight. Being overweight or obese can cause insulin resistance, especially if you carry your extra pounds around the middle.

Too much glucose from your liver. When blood sugar is low, the liver makes and sends out glucose. After you eat, your blood sugar goes up, and usually the liver will slow down and store its glucose for later. But some people’s livers don’t. They keep producing sugar.

Symptoms of diabetes

The symptoms of type-2 diabetes can be so mild you don’t notice them. In fact, about 8 million people who have it don’t know it. Some symptoms may include:

Frequent urination
Blurry vision
Tingling or numbness in your hands or feet
Feeling worn out
Wounds that don’t heal
Yeast infections that keep coming back
