STOP LETT I NG YOUR D I ABETES CONTROL YOUR L I FE A CURE FOR TYPE 2?

Proper Nutrition — Healthy eating is good for everyone and can really benefit someone trying to overcome Type 2 diabetes. Fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, lean meats, and beans are much better for you than processed foods. Meal planning can help with this and ensure you don’t have to swing by a drive-through for a last- minute meal. Exercise — Again, this is something everyone should do. You don’t even have to lose weight for exercise to help control your Type 2 diabetes. Physical activity helps push glucose from your blood into your cells, resulting in healthier blood sugar levels. We do not treat diabetes at Advanced Nerve and Laser. However, we can help people control their condition through good nutrition and weight loss. If you’re ready to stop controlling your Type 2 diabetes and start curing it, give us a call! We’d love to help you get on the right track.

Anyone who has been diagnosed with a disease knows one of the first questions they ask their doctor is, “Can you cure it?” Depending on the disease, the doctor will either give you good news or bad. Type 1 diabetics, for example, always get bad news after being diagnosed. The result of the body’s own immune system destroying beta cells in the pancreas, Type 1 diabetics are unable to naturally produce insulin to control their blood sugar. Scientists are not certain what causes some people to develop Type 1 diabetes, but at the moment, there is no cure. Type 1 diabetics face a lifelong struggle to maintain their blood sugar levels through insulin therapy. On the other hand, Type 2 diabetics have the ability to cure their disease. While many people are under the impression they only control their disease and not cure it, the truth is that Type 2 diabetes does not have to be a life sentence. With Type 2 diabetes, your body either resists insulin or can’t produce enough insulin to maintain a healthy blood sugar level. This is often the result of certain lifestyle choices, and making a lifestyle change is exactly how you can cure your Type 2 diabetes. Weight Loss — It doesn’t require overwhelming weight loss to help improve your diabetes. Even just dropping 10–15 pounds can help lower your blood sugar levels drastically.
