Prevention and Cure
Eating the right foods and adopting other lifestyle behaviours that promote healthy blood sugar and insulin levels will give you the best chance at avoiding diabetes. There are a few herbs that may help increase insulin sensitivity and reduce the likelihood of diabetes progression which are curcumin and berberine. The major goal in treating type 1 and type 2 diabetes is to control blood sugar (glucose) levels within the normal range, with minimal excursions to low or high levels. Type 1 diabetes is treated with insulin, exercise, and a Type 1 diabetes diet. Type 2 diabetes is treated with weight reduction, a type 2 diabetes diet, and exercise, diabetes medications (oral or injected) are prescribed when these measures fail to control the elevated blood sugars of type 2 diabetes. If other medications become ineffective treatment with insulin may be initiated.
