I believe that many other persons who are borderline or fully diabetic can experience a similar change in their physical health. If you struggle with diabetes, are you willing to invest in necessary lifestyle changes to free yourself from the dependency on medication and live a healthier life? Remember, you want to control your diabetes and at least maintain a hemoglobin A1C (HbA1C) of less than 6.5. This is very difficult to do with medication alone. Applying these principles to your own life will significantly improve your diabetic control. You should watch your blood sugars closely when you begin these life style adjustments, if the blood sugars drop too much; you need to consult your doctor so he can adjust your medication.
As I wrote earlier, diabetes mellitus is increasing at epidemic proportions. In spite of the billions spent on this disease, we are losing the battle.
Physicians and lay people alike must refocus their attitudes and attack insulin resistance rather than elevated blood sugars. When we see elevated triglyceride levels along with lower HDL cholesterol levels, hypertension, or unusual weight gain, we need to recognize the possible developments of syndrome X and accelerated cardiovascular damage that may have already begin.
Rather than simply treating the diseases that insulin resistance causes, we need to aggressively treat the insulin resistance itself. Isn’t it amazing that such simple life style changes can affect a near miracle, the disappearance of diabetes?
