Type 2 Diabetes, also known as Adult-Onset Diabetes is a metabolic disorder where the body does not produce enough insulin; or the cells disregard the insulin that the body is producing. Insulin is important in the transport of sugar from the blood into the cells, giving them energy.
Some of the most common symptoms of Type 2 Diabetes include:
- Frequent urination
- Constant thirst
- Extreme hunger
- Unusual weight gain
- Excessive fatigue and irritability
- Frequent infections
- Blurred vision
- Slow healing cuts or bruises
- Tingling or numbness in hands or feet
- Recurring skin, gum or bladder infections
Often, people with Type 2 Diabetes do not even have symptoms. Studies have shown that Type 2 Diabetes is related to diet and lifestyle.
There are simple steps that can be taken to combat Type 2 Diabetes:
- Begin by walking 10-20 minutes three to five times a week. Move at a pace to get your heart rate going but you should still be able to talk when walking.
- Cut out sugar from your diet. Limit foods that break down into sugar quickly, like breads, potatoes, pasta, rice, or noodles. Eliminate these foods whenever possible and substitute them with vegetables that you like.
- Stay hydrated by drinking at least eight glasses of water a day.
- Reduce cravings by using a supplement like Advanced Metabo, which helps to balance sugar levels. Eat fruits and vegetable that are low in sugar, high fiber foods and protein to maintain metabolism.
- To give energy while maintaining your sugar levels use a high-quality protein like Advanced Health Shake which is safe for diabetics to use.
