Must Read: How To Make Blood Sugar Low In a Safer Way?
Millions of people have an elevated blood glucose in their blood stream. However, experts have come up a possible solution to reverse its increasing incidence.
In the past, diabetes is extremely rare. But as the years went by, the incidence of diabetes is increasing. According to Diet Doctor, in 1985 there are only 30 million people are affected worldwide with diabetes. While in 2011, it reaches to 366 million people suffered the disease.
Sugar in blood comes what people eat. Foods are turned into different types of sugar as soon as they reach to the stomach and enters the bloodstream. When these are not controlled, they will eventually build up and complicate leading to a disease called diabetes.
Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes which is around 90 percent of all the cases and is increasing. It primarily affects overweight people in middle age. People who suffered Type 2 diabetes normally never regained their health.
Symptoms such as excessive thirst, blurry vision, and fatigue are commonly experienced by a person with diabetes. However, these symptoms often do not manifest in milder forms of diabetes but sugar in the blood still gradually damages the body.
However, in an article published by Daily Mail, there is a simple way to stop the progress of diabetes in just eight weeks. By reversing Type 2 diabetes, an 800-calorie diet is introduced to return blood sugar levels to normal.
Losing belly fat fast is good but losing blood sugar level faster is the best for diabetic people. Scientific trials are already done at the University of Newcastle investigating in detail the mechanism underlying what goes wrong with blood sugar control.
Roy Taylor, a professor of medicine and metabolism at Newcastle University and Europe's respected diabetic researcher, began a trial on diabetics. The study involves asking 11 recently diagnosed diabetics to go on a low-calorie diet.
The results show that in the first week, the participants lost an average of 3.9kgs and their hunger is disappearing within 48 hours. And in just eight weeks, they lost an average of 15 kilograms and nearly 5 inches around the waist. Their blood sugar levels are also back to normal in the non-diabetic range.
"It was electrifying and more effective than I thought," Taylor said. However, follow-up studies also have shown that the less time having Type 2 diabetes, the greater the chance of success.
Also, Dr. Michael Mosley, co-author of the best-selling book The Fast Diet, came across years of animal research and numerous human trials demonstrating multiple benefits of intermittent fasting. He went on a 5:2 diet (eat normally five days in a week and cut down calories to around 600 on the other two). Mosley lost 20lbs in just 12 weeks and his blood sugar and cholesterol levels returned to normal.
The intermittent fasting involves periodically reducing your calorie intake to bring about not only loss in weight but also improvements in mood and memory. This method of fasting is done through cutting calories on a diet on the other two days in a week.
