Diabetes is one of the most common civilization diseases. About 90% of cases are type 2 diabetes. Diabetes is actually a sign of a symptom, which is elevated blood sugar levels. However, the reasons for this are different in type 1 and type 2 diabetes.

Beta cell damage

Type 1 diabetes is caused by damage to the so-called beta cells in the pancreas, which produce insulin. Due to the lack of insulin, the body is unable to transport sugar from the blood to the tissues, and its level in the blood increases rapidly.

This disease most often begins in childhood or early adulthood and is mainly caused by an autoimmune response against beta cells. But why the body produces antibodies against them is still being studied. One option being explored is vitamin D deficiency.

Studies have repeatedly shown that by administering vitamin D at least in autumn and winter (especially in pregnant women), we reduce the risk of this disease. However, once the disease has set in, the only treatment option is insulin.

The body's inability to process glucose

It is different with type 2 diabetes. Here there can be enough insulin, and sometimes the pancreas even produces an excess of it. But human tissue cannot respond enough to it and use it to transfer sugar to tissues. This condition is called insulin resistance.

The causes of this disease, unlike the previous type of diabetes, are known. It is primarily an unhealthy lifestyle, improper diet, overweight and lack of exercise.

But there is also good news from this. If we take preventive care of our health, the risk of developing this disease is very small

Impaired glucose tolerance

It should also be mentioned that there is still a precursor to diabetes, which we call impaired glucose tolerance. Thanks to it, the blood sugar level is slightly above normal, but not as high as with diabetes. In this case, the body does not respond sufficiently to the glucose load and therefore sometimes has elevated blood sugar levels.

Unfortunately, this condition already increases the risk of cardiovascular complications, such as myocardial infarction or stroke. There is also a danger that impaired glucose tolerance will develop into type 2 diabetes.


What is so dangerous about diabetes?

What is the danger? On the one hand, there are extreme fluctuations in blood glucose, both in positive and negative directions, which can lead to coma, on the other hand, there are complications associated with long-term increases in blood glucose.

This is mainly damage to the small vessels and nerves, which can later result in bleeding from the lower limbs with the need for amputation, there is also pain due to neuropathy, further damage to kidney failure with the need for dialysis, and finally diabetic retinopathy leading to blindness.

How to prevent diabetes

Therefore, it is essential to keep blood sugar levels as low as possible. The basis, of course, is to change your eating habits and include regular exercise in your daily routine.

Of the natural supplements, taking chromium 3 times a day with food (Chromium Max) can help us as chromium helps to improve the sensitivity of our tissues to insulin.

Another suitable supplement is Nordic Pure Omega 3, which protects blood vessels and has an anti-inflammatory effect.

Liquid Chlorophyll (3 tablespoons per half liter of water) can also help us lower blood glucose levels.

For people who prefer a liquid dietary supplement, Organic Acai may be a good choice, especially due to its anti-inflammatory effect and beneficial effect on reducing insulin resistance.
