Type 2 Diabetes Symptoms and Treatments
Type 2 Diabetes Symptoms and Treatments, Type 2 diabetes is a fully preventable, reversible condition that arises from faulty leptin signaling and insulin resistance.It is possible to control or reverse your diabetes without drugs by recovering your insulin and leptin sensitivities.
The only known way to reestablish proper leptin and insulin signaling is through a proper diet and exercise. There is NO
drug that can currently accomplish this, and I doubt if one will ever exist in the lifetime of anyone reading this!
A meta-analysis of 13 randomized controlled trials involving more than 33,000 people showed that drug treatment of type 2 diabetes is not only ineffective, it’s dangerous. Treatment with glucose-lowering drugs actually showed the potential to increase your risk of death from heart-related and all other causes.
So please remember, your diet will make or break you if you’re diabetic or pre-diabetic. Unfortunately, the conventional dietary recommendations for diabetics – that of a high complex carbohydrate, low saturated fat diet – is the exact opposite of what actually works.
High complex carbohydrates include legumes, potatoes, corn, rice, and grain products. Aside from legumes, you actually want to AVOID all the rest to prevent insulin resistance. Nearly all type 2 diabetics need to swap out their grains and sugars for other foods, such as protein, green veggies, and healthy sources of fat.
You will want to take special care to eliminate from your diet fructose and high-fructose corn syrup, which is far more detrimental than any other type of sugar.

This also means avoiding most processed foods of all kinds, as they are loaded with fructose. You especially need to avoid processed meats which, along with added sodium, have sugar in them to make them palatable.
You may also even need to avoid fruits until your blood sugar is under control.
I strongly advise keeping your total fructose consumption below 25 grams per day. However, it would be wise for most people to limit fructose to 15 grams or less, as it is virtually guaranteed you will be getting “hidden” sources of fructose from just about any processed food you eat.
