Get Your Facts Strait On Diabetes – Research And Studies Every American Should Know

Some people are not aware how their lifestyle puts them at risk for type 2 diabetes. Others have a wellness lifestyle. But there are other reasons diabetes can occur.

Finding yourself with a fasting blood sugar over 80 on a glucose test does not make you a type 2 diabetic. It does mean you need to do things to lower your diabetes risk.

There are two types of test-strip based glucose measurement meters currently available on the consumer market. These glucose meters don’t really do much besides read and process the date presented by the test strips.

For most everyone, 162 mg dl levels are not a problem whatsoever. Where the problem comes into play for diabetics, or pre-diabetics, is when their bodies can’t burn up the extra glucose. The glucose stays in their system and doesn’t burn off. This issue is compounded with every meal they eat. This is exactly the reason why it is so important to know what your glucose level is.

The pancreas is, in a sense, the ‘shock organ’ of the stomach. If you fill yourself with acidic foodstuffs, the stomach is going to pump all that directly into the pancreas.

If you lower your weight by changing some of the things you eat, that will lower your risk immediately. And if you exercise more than 30 minutes a day several times a week, you will drastically change your diabetes risk.

Ask questions. There may be an easier way to get your insulin than the one you are using. There may be a less painful way to check your blood sugar. You might not need some of your medications anymore if you’ve made changes in your diet and lost weight.

Diabetes is due to the breakdown of the pancreas by an over-acidification of your system. By alkalizing and energizing your body you can slowly rebuild your pancreas. With your pancreas functioning optimally, you no longer experience the symptoms associated with ‘Diabetes’.
