Diabetes is a disease in which your blood sugar levels are too high. This is based on the foods you take in. In a healthy body, a hormone called insulin usually helps to turn blood sugar into energy for your cells.
However, with type 1 diabetes, the body does not make insulin and type 2 diabetes inhibits the body from making insulin well and the body eventually loses the ability to make it at all.
Over time, too much sugar in the body can cause problems with eyes, kidneys and nerves. It can also lead to heart disease, stroke, and the need to remove a limb.
You should monitor your blood sugar levels and follow your doctor’s advise. The following nutrients can help you as well….
Biotin helps to digest fats & carbohydrates, regulates blood sugar.
Chromium helps insulin move glucose from your blood into cells.
Fiber slows conversion of carbohydrates to glucose to avoid blood sugar spikes.
Magnesium helps prevent insulin resistance.
Omega-3 fatty acids prevent insulin resistance.
