Medication nor supplements are the magic bullet for reversing diabetes. Having said that, some supplements may help when digesting food, glucose absorption and insulin resistance.
Happy New Year!
It’s common to set business and career goals each year. While setting your goals for 2018, consider setting your health goals. Why not start with a goal to stop the progression or to reverse type 2 diabetes?
What do you expect at your next doctor’s visit? Are you expecting your A1c to be lower or higher since your last test? Are you expecting your diabetes medication dosage to be lowered or increased, or worse yet adding another medication to your daily regime? Will you be surprised if the results are not what you are wishing for?
Yes, I state the title correctly. No, I did not intend to write, “Celebrating the Holidays with Diabetes.”
Taking proper steps to improve your health has something to do with your perception. Getting through the holidays and not gaining weight is hard for millions of Americans. Not only is weight gain an issue for diabetes patients so is maintaining healthy glucose levels.
Diabetes drugs seem to be aired on every TV channel. For now, it’s LYRICA (pregabalin) for treating diabetic nerve pain (neuropathy).
Did you know that LYRICA comes with the following common side effects? Dizziness, blurry vision, weight gain, sleepiness, trouble concentrating, swelling of your hands and feet, dry mouth, and feeling “high.”
The first key to reverse diabetes naturally is your desire to improve your health. Know that lifestyle changes are needed. Also know that most people make it harder than it really is. Just take the first step, there’s no perfection required. I’ve said this many times, “it’s not a race.”
The importance is that you make lifetime changes. Quick fixes are just that, and they don’t last because a true commitment has not been made.
