Diabetes and Pre-Diabetes–Lower Your Blood Sugar With What You Eat

Dr John La Puma

Approximately 18.2 million Americans have diabetes, including 5.2 million who are undiagnosed. Many are insulin resistant–your insulin doesn’t work well, and leaves sugar in the bloodstream unless you change what you eat. Recipes to lower blood sugar, free, are here.

Diabetes is a complex disease–many genes control it, and interact with diet to make it better or worse. Obesity (measure your Body Mass Index here, free) increases insulin resistence, making it harder to lower blood sugar and your cholesterol.

How can you change what you eat? Research just published in a leading nutrition journal shows short-term low-carbohydrate diet resulted in improved insulin sensitivity in overweight but otherwise healthy women. Will this work in the long term? Time and lifestyle change will tell.
