A Balanced Bioactive Nutrition Program
The next most important preventive action you can take is to adopt a balanced daily nutritional routine that helps ensure a healthy blood sugar metabolism.
As we age, and our metabolic conditions change, balanced nutrition with moderate exercise are two key preventive measures most often recommended by physicians and healthcare providers for living a healthy lifestyle.
Balanced nutrition is an essential factor in managing the prediabetic and type 2 diabetic conditions. However all too often the dietary programs recommended by the American Diabetes Association and professional healthcare providers include highly structured and rigorous daily dietary routines.
While these dietary programs have been developed to help ensure healthy blood glucose metabolism, research has found that 63% of diabetics in America have not reached their blood sugar management goals by managing their diets along with their prescribed pharmaceutical medications.
Why haven’t these solutions worked in the past?
The reasons most commonly cited by those failing to meet their nutritional plans center on the “complexity and difficulty in maintaining daily nutrition and treatment plans” in their daily routines. This was validated in studies by Dr. Elbert Huang at the University of Chicago Medical School.
The underlying metabolic causes of type 2 diabetes are high levels of insulin resistance and higher than normal blood sugar levels. Family history (genetics), poor dietary habits, lethargic lifestyles and damaging lifestyle choices can all play a role in the development of type 2 diabetes. But the good news is that most type 2 diabetic conditions can be managed, and even reversed, if diagnosed early and properly addressed through balanced nutrition and exercise. Insulin resistance can be reduced, and blood sugar levels can be lowered and stabilized, by knowing your current diabetic risk factor, and taking action to improve your diet, manage your weight, and by developing healthy lifestyle habits.
Researchers have discovered that the causes of type 2 diabetes are complicated, but for most insulin resistance is a core factor in raising your blood sugar levels. All too often doctors become most concerned only when a patient experiences a collection of health conditions that can greatly increase the risk of cardiovascular disease along with diabetes, leading to a health condition called metabolic syndrome. The early warning signs include: excessive fat deposits around the stomach area, high cholesterol levels, high blood glucose levels and higher than normal blood pressure. Why is this important? The risk of cardiovascular disease is six times greater in the prediabetic or type 2 diabetic stage. Taking action early is the best prevention.
According to the American Diabetes Association (ADA), a majority of individuals are not even aware of the early warning signs leading to prediabetes and type 2 diabetes. For most of us these early warning signs may not seem harmful in their individual state, but over time they can collectively result in serious health problems if not addressed in a timely manner. The following symptoms often signal the onset of the type 2 diabetic condition:
- Frequent urination
- Excessive thirst
- Increased fatigue
- Increased irritability
- Blurred vision
- Extreme hunger
- Unusual weight loss
- Numbness in feet or hands
Type 2 diabetes can be a very serious life threatening disease if not detected early and managed properly. Balanced nutrition is a key factor in managing the blood glucose metabolism processes that are essential to our overall health and wellbeing. Diabatrol®, by Diabco Life Sciences, was developed specifically for providing the daily nutritional balance needed for managing blood glucose metabolism for individuals diagnosed with the prediabetic or early stage type 2 diabetic condition. In addition, Diabco Life Sciences offers an FDA approved diabetes ‘screening kit’ that can be taken in the privacy of your own home and sent to our CLIA certified laboratory for early detection. The results from this diabetes risk assessment (DRA) will provide you with the information needed to precisely know your current blood sugar condition, and what actions you may want to consider for maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
