The mainstream is onto something new: a condition known as “prediabetes.”
People with the condition have higher-than-normal blood sugar levels, but not high enough to be diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. What was once considered “at risk” for developing diabetes has now gotten its very own diagnosis.
Now, there’s no question that diabetes is an epidemic – but because diabetes drug sales are plateauing, there’s a push now to get even MORE people on those drugs.
And as always it all begins with new suggested guidelines… and those new guidelines for so-called healthy blood sugar levels have been set so low that just about ANYBODY could now qualify as being prediabetic.
The good news is you can beat back prediabetes without drugs. If you have the “symptoms” of prediabetes, you can reverse your chances of developing full-blown type 2 diabetes by making simple dietary and lifestyle changes – without risking your health and without taking diabetes drugs.
First of all, you can switch to the Paleo Diet – because the best way to control your blood sugar is to eat lots of protein with little to no carbs or sugars.
If you need a little extra help avoiding those sugar spikes (and the resulting crashes), talk to a doctor skilled in alternative healthcare about one of the many natural, safe and inexpensive ways to help. I tell my patients to add supplements that can help control blood sugar, like Berberine. Chromium can also help with sugar cravings.
Getting plenty of exercise and a good night’s sleep will help keep your overall health in check, too.
Don’t be one of the millions of non-diabetics who end up on dangerous and toxic drugs… to treat a disease you don’t even have yet.Wishing you the best of health,
