|Lowering the Risk Factors
|Diabetes is a dangerous health problem. In adults, diabetes is often a result of long-term nutritional neglect and abuse.
Most of us don't eat breakfast. Our fuel supply is very low, and we wind up running on fumes. We grab a high-calorie muffin or a candy bar later in the morning when we're really, really hungry. What we don't know is that this snack causes insulin to dump out of the pancreas into the bloodstream, as the body attempts to process the surge in blood glucose from the snack we just ate.
This pattern is repeated throughout the day. A graph of the average person's blood sugar levels would show sharp spikes - both highs and lows - in every 24-hour period. Eventually, the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas wear out. The result is consistently high levels of blood glucose which is called diabetes.
Diabetes may cause severe eye problems, severe kidney problems, and severe circulatory problems. It is associated with obesity, heart disease, and increased mortality. Not good.
An obvious preventive strategy would be to ensure that blood glucose levels are steady throughout the day. Actually, this is easy to do. All that's required is to develop healthy eating habits and do regular exercise.
Eat breakfast - a 1/2 cup of cottage cheese mixed with a 6-ounce cup of yoghurt is all you need
Do food combining at every meal - always eat a combination of protein and carbohydrate
No between-meal snacks
Regular exercise that is challenging and fun - build-up gradually and be consistent
