Treatment for Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes is a lifelong disease that keeps your body from using insulin the way it should. People with this disease are said to have insulin resistance. 

People who are middle-aged or older are most likely to get type 2 diabetes, though this disease may also affect kids and teens mainly because of childhood obesity.

Causes of Type 2 Diabetes

Insulin is a hormone made by your pancreas. It helps your cells convert glucose, a form of sugar, into energy. The cells of people with type 2 diabetes produce insulin, but they do not use it effectively. Initially, your pancreas makes more insulin to try to get glucose into your cells. Over time, it cannot keep up, and glucose builds up in your blood instead.

Usually, a combination of things that causes type 2 diabetes may include:

  • Extra Weight: Being obese or overweight may cause insulin resistance especially if you carry your extra weight around your middle. 
  • Genes: A study has found different bits of DNA that may affect how your body produces insulin. 
  • Too Much Glucose From Your Liver: Your liver makes and sends out glucose when your levels of blood sugar are low. Your blood sugar goes up after you eat and your liver will usually slow down and store its glucose for later. 
  • Metabolic Syndrome: People with insulin resistance often have a group of a condition such as extra fat around the waist, high blood sugar, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure. 
  • Broken Beta Cells: If the cells that produce insulin send out the wrong amount of insulin at the wrong time, your blood sugar gets thrown off. As a result, high levels of blood sugar may damage these cells too.

Dropping extra weight can help. Weight loss can seem overwhelming, but portion control and eating healthy foods are good places to start.

  • Cutting back on refined carbs 
  • Eating fewer calories
  • Getting more fiber
  • Adding veggies and fruits to your diet 

3. Exercise 

Try having 30-60 minutes of physical activity daily. You can do lots of things to get your heart rate up. 

Using HCG Diet to Stabilize Blood Sugar 

The occurrence of Type 2 diabetes is about the way the patient leads his lifestyle and it is mostly seen in people who are obese or are overweight. For people with this kind of diabetics, by adopting the HCG diet, they can surely get themselves out of this kind of diabetes. 

The best way to control type 2 diabetes is to effectively manage the blood sugar level in the body. As type 2 diabetics are caused by unhealthy weight, the HCG diet can help control this in the best manner. 

The HCG diet combines a restricted diet of approximately 500 calories per day along with hormone injections. In a 500-calorie diet phase, your blood sugar should drop and stabilize at a lower level. This will keep your blood sugar at a relatively stable level that’s lower than it would be if you were eating more calories and more carbohydrates.
