1. Know the symptoms.
Symptoms of diabetes can come from urinating quite often, increased fatigues, constant hunger and thirst. Also a sudden lost in weight, without much exercise or healthy form of eating even. Those who struggle with weight, particularly when it comes to eating a lot, they’re at high risk for diabetes. I would get regular check ups with a doctor, to see if you are potentially entering into diabetes type 2.
2. Getting the right treatment.
You should definitely seek a doctor. Listen to what they have to say carefully, and follow their directions. They’ll give you a strict diet to follow and you definitely should. If you have type 1 diabetes, you’ll most likely definitely have to take insulin shots. Take them on doctors orders, very important. Not getting these shots can kill you, or a loved child that has diabetes type 1.
3. Daily exercise.
It’s important to be active, when having diabetes. You want to minimize your blood sugar, and the best way to do that is exercising. Join a local gym, get a membership. Get a treadmill, something where you can shed off weight. When you’re diagnosed with diabetes, losing weight is usually recommended. So get active!
4. Proper diet.
You have to start eating properly. Obviously nothing with sugar when suffering from diabetes. Eat foods low in saturated fat, this is key. I’d recommend going with foods that are lower than 10% in saturated fat, if possible. Stay away from greasy foods. Avoid foods high in cholesterol at all times. Your doctor should give you similar instructions on the diet you should have. Make sure you are taking notes. If you don’t have diabetes yet, then watch your intake in sugar.
5. Drink 8 glasses of cold water daily.
Not only does it help you lose weight, it will help you resist the urge to want to constantly eat all the time. Drinking a lot of water can help fill you up and make you full a lot easier, after eating meals.
6 .Taking the proper supplements.
Virgin Coconut Oil helps well for those who have diabetes. It is okay to eat and use this oil. It will probably be recommended by your doctor even. It’s a great oil, although high in fat calories, it does burn fat. There are good fats out there, even good saturated fats, which is mainly what Virgin Coconut Oil is made up of.
Don’t worry though, these are not bad saturated fats. Virgin Coconut Oil contains a rare medium-chain fatty acid, call lauric acid. This fatty acid is not in the foods that normally contain a high level, and unhealthy form of saturated fat.
