One of the fastest-growing diseases is one that most people don't think about: type II diabetes. Long known as "adult diabetes", this is a condition in which the body's ability to use carbohydrates is impaired by the ineffective function of insulin.
Type II diabetes is characterized by very high blood sugar and insulin levels and significantly increases the risk of coronary heart disease, stroke, blindness, neurological disorders, kidney disease, cancer, and impotence.

Is there any good news? Right. Type II diabetes is a nutritional disease with nutritional treatment. The type of diet that protects against type II diabetes is a high-protein and low-carbohydrate diet, in which carbohydrates mainly come from starch-free vegetables such as lettuce, green beans, asparagus, celery, and broccoli.
Eating these types of foods and using supporting supplements should not be viewed as alternative medicine, but as a treatment option for type II diabetes.
The diet should also be high in good fats, such as monounsaturated fats in olive oil and omega-3 fats in cold-water fish and fish oils. Although fat is considered taboo by many, good fats should be viewed as an important medicine for diabetics because they increase insulin sensitivity and do not increase insulin levels.
Dietary supplements also play an important role in the natural management of diabetes. I often recommend my patients with type II diabetes to take two nutrients that help maintain healthy blood sugar levels.
