There are two primary types of diabetes. 

Type I is when the body is unable to make enough insulin and insulin injections are the conventional form of medicine used to treat this disease.

Type II is when the body cannot use insulin properly within the body.  This can develop at any age, and most cases can be prevented.  Currently 1 out of 3 people will develop diabetes in their lifetime.

Risk Factors:


Family History

Gestational diabetes

High blood pressure

Abnormal cholesterol

Physically inactive

Excessive prolonged stress

If you have any of the above risk factors and age 45 or older, consider being tested for diabetes, especially if you’re overweight – you may already be pre-diabetic.  Keep in mind that pre-diabetes has no symptoms.  It is usually people with blood glucose levels higher than normal that are at more risk for pre-diabetes.  Those that do have pre-diabetes are at a greater risk for developing Type II diabetes as well as heart disease. 

What You Can Do…

  • With this impending doom, what can we do?  We can each take responsibility for our own health, and do what is necessary to change our lifestyle to prevent becoming a diabetic.  The most important things research and experience shows us is that with just 30 minutes of physical activity 5 days a week and healthier eating, we could defeat diabetes.

Physical activity can help control blood glucose, as well as maintaining a healthy weight and blood pressure, raise good cholesterol and lower bad cholesterol.  There is quite a variety of physical movement that will keep us on a healthier path.  To name just a few, take a brisk walk, mow the lawn with a push mower, dance, swim, bicycle, climb stairs, hike, participate in any sports.  Any activity that works your large muscles will provide you tremendous benefits.

  • Start eating right.  Eat smaller portions but more often.  Limit or eliminate foods high in saturated fats, trans-fats, lard, shortening, stick margarine, and non-dairy creamers.  Eliminate fatty cuts of meat from the diet.  Avoid fried foods, whole milk, and dairy products made from whole milk.  Eliminate sugars, flour and most high carb grains like white rice, oatmeal, etc. Brown-wild-black rice is healthier but you must still monitor blood sugar for spikes.  Adjust your dietary intake so 50% of foods ingested are vegetables or fruit.  Add colorful foods to your diet as they provide many essential amino acids, vitamins, minerals, and anti-oxidants.

For those of you currently diagnosed with Type II diabetes, like yours truly, there is still hope.  With adjustments to your lifestyle, you may be able to “cure” your diabetes.  Work with your nutritionally-aware doctor or Wholistic Rejuvenist to incorporate healthier choices into your life, and seek out alternative healing modalities as well.  A nice compliment of holistic and allopathic medicine may just turn your life around.
