Diabetes Diet, Eating, & Physical Activity
Healthy eating is the major part of managing diabetes. Eating the right foods and following other lifestyle behaviours that develop 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 regulate blood sugar (glucose) levels within the normal range. Type 1 diabetes is treated with insulin, exercise, and a healthy 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.
