Diabetics, Reduce Your Insulin Dependency
As a diabetic you most likely have heard that diabetes is a lifetime disease. New research has started to prove otherwise. Here you will learn about the new research and what you can do now to reduce your insulin dependence, perhaps even cure your diabetes altogether.
Are you tired of worrying about your sugar levels; worrying about the food that you eat; how much alcohol you can drink? What if there was a way to reduce your body's dependency on insulin? Is there a way to get rid diabetes altogether? Medical research has discovered some recent methods that you need to hear about. You will be excited to find out that some of them may change your life.
Let's start with the most common stuff, your food. Most diabetics are already aware of this info, but on the off chance that you are not, you must follow this diet for the entire time that you are diagnosed as a diabetic. You have most likely heard that you should switch to eating foods high in protein and fiber and avoid foods that are high in carbs (carbohydrates), especially simple carbs that are common in your pasta and white bread. This doesn't mean that you can no longer have any more pasta or white bread, it just means you must look a little harder and look for the ones that have the “100% Whole Grain” label on them. Yes there is a small difference in taste but it's better than not being able to enjoy that food at all. This also includes all forms of sugar; yes the Equal, Sweet and Low, and of course regular sugar must be 100% cut out of your diet. It is also recommended that you avoid fruit juice. In fact the only recommended type of sugar for diabetics whether you have type 1 or 2 is fresh fruit.
There are a few other important elements that must be included in your diet. Specific fatty acids are also very crucial. Most nuts contain the necessary oils; olive oil is another very good fatty acid; we find that the most beneficial tends to be sunflower oil, although it can be a bit difficult to find in stores. Another important element to include is chromium, vitamin C, and vitamin B complex. Although these are the most important rules to follow for a diabetic and most of you are already living by these rules, they are a requirement to follow at least until your diagnoses of diabetic is removed.
Yes, you read that right. You have probably heard over and over that diabetes is a lifetime disease; new science is finding that perhaps diabetes can be cured or at least reduced to a level where you can almost forget that it exists.
The most prominent studies revolve around a somewhat newly discovered hormone called human growth hormone or hgh. You may have recently heard hgh mentioned in the news because athletes are using it to boost their performance; taking the time to explain the effects of the excessive dosages that these athletes use would require its own research paper. Suffice it to say that the excessive dosages of hgh these athletes take can create some serious negative side effects. This is not an indicator of the majority of people that use regular doctor prescribed dosages, or the natural alternatives known as hgh stimulators. These people have found a method to slow down or in some cases even reverse the natural process of aging.
For those with diabetes, hgh is a real candidate to not just treat but to actually cure it altogether. Let me point out one thing here. Those who take higher dosages than what was prescribed to them actually worsen their diabetes condition. In fact some athletes who took three of four times the recommended dosage actually develop diabetes where none existed before; this of course among several other serious side effects, like deformations of body parts and others. However research done by Zenobi, Renato, PD at the University of Zurich found that with proper dosages diabetes was noticeably reduced in all who were in the study and some even had the condition disappear altogether. Their theory is that if the patients continued to take hgh eventually all of them would have that diabetes disappear altogether. New studies coming out continue to support this finding such as the one done by John Hopkin's Institute. With all of this being said, if you do choose to try lowering your diabetes with hgh your best bet is to use natural hgh stimulator pills. If you do choose to use hgh sprays or injections, make sure that your physician is very much involved in the process and that all recommended dosages are followed. You will need to be very carefully monitored to make sure the dosages are correct for your body.
Bilberry is another very real treatment for reducing the symptoms of diabetes. There have not been any cases where diabetes was cured altogether, however some people had their symptoms reduced to such a level that they claimed to not having to even check their blood sugar anymore. This is not recommended for those with the disease, but they obviously felt comfortable enough to do so. There has been a considerable amount of research on the subject of the bilberry. You can start with looking into the bilberry study done by Zafra-Stone S, Yasmin T, Bagchi M, Chatterjee A, Vinson JA, Bagchi D at Molecular Nutrition & Food Research.
Finally I will mention a few herbs that have shown some preliminary positive effects on reducing the symptoms of diabetes, or more correctly, reducing your insulin dependency. The leaves of fig trees have shown some benefits from those suffering with diabetes, however there has yet to be a double placebo study of the effects of fig leaves on your health therefore making fig leaves a speculative remedy. The same thing also goes with cactus juice where there is considerable claim that it does in fact have potential benefits for diabetes sufferers yet no double placebo studies have been done yet to validate the claim. Finally I will mention basil leaves and as common as they are we were not able to find a study on basil leaves and its effects on diabetes, thereby leaving the claims merely speculation.
You now have enough information to lower your own dependency on insulin. There may come a time when hgh research finally comes out with a product that will totally cure diabetes however for the time being you can only hope. We want to warn you that before your add any of these methods that you first consult your physician and that any of the recommendations you follow here are closely monitored.
