Diabetes is simply a disorder of insulin and blood sugar. Diabetes is a disorder in the way that insulin is made and/or used by a person. Insulin is a pancreatic hormone that lowers blood glucose levels by moving it out the bloodstream into the cells.

Type 1 diabetes results when, for autoimmune or other rare reasons, the pancreas becomes damaged and fails to produce insulin. Although most commonly diagnosed in childhood, this type of diabetes can also occur in adulthood.

In type 2 diabetes, there are defects in both the production of insulin by the pancreas (insulin deficiency) and the use of insulin by the body (insulin resistance). Blood sugar levels rise when insulin resistance and damage to insulin-producing pancreas cells are reached.

Because excess glucose can cause damage to blood vessels, it is a problem in excess glucose levels. 

High glucose levels can be a result of an underlying process, which has been ongoing for many years before it becomes high.

Good news: Exercise and diet can reduce insulin resistance, and weight gain. This may help to prevent or reverse diabetes.

How to lower the level of  blood sugar through diet

What happens when you eliminate foods that increase blood sugar? Is there any good food left? We believe so. In fact, we have a whole guide on the best foods to control diabetes.

A picture is worth a thousand pictures. These are just some of the many delicious foods that won’t spike blood sugar.

Many type 2 diabetics now choose a low-carb diet, which is becoming increasingly popular among clinicians.

Type 2 diabetes patients will notice an improvement in their blood sugar levels from the very first meal. The need to take insulin and other medications is often greatly reduced. Often, significant weight loss is followed by health improvements and other indicators.

People generally feel happier and more alert.

It is safe and effective to eat foods that are low in carbs. However, if you are taking medications for your diabetes, you must work with your healthcare provider to adjust your medications when you change our diet since the need for medications, especially insulin, may be greatly reduced.

If you are looking for a doctor who will work with you to control your diabetes with a change in diet, our map may help you find one.

Scientific Evidence on Diabetes reversal

In 2019, the American Diabetes Association (ADA) stated that reducing carbohydrate intake was the most effective nutritional strategy for improving blood sugar control in those with diabetes

Low-carb diets have been shown to be safe and effective in treating type 2 diabetes. This evidence comes from Altai balance reviews and meta-analyses based on random controlled trials.

A 2017 meta-analysis found that low-carb diets reduce the need for diabetes medication, and improve certain bio-markers among people with type 2. This included reductions in hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c), triglycerides, and blood pressure; and increases in high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, sometimes called the “good” cholesterol.
