prediabetes and type 2 diabetes
Pre-diabetes and full-blown type 2 diabetes are on the rise, so much so that in 2010 the World Health Organization (WHO) gave all nations a mandate to take action to combat its spread. In 2015, the International Diabetes Federation reported that more than 400 million people lived with diabetes. Experts predict that if this trend continues, by 2040 there will be 1.8 billion people with diabetes worldwide. This article and the research cited therein focus on the growing understanding by diabetes researchers that consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages (SSBs) and foods high in sugar may be a major cause of prediabetes, type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and obesity, and Obesity. A practical and natural solution to deal with these conditions is also given.
Type 2 diabetes and sugar
Normally, sugar is converted to the simple sugar glucose. Then insulin, a hormone produced by the pancreas, helps to transport the glucose into the body’s cells. A normally functioning pancreas adjusts the amount of insulin it produces based on the level of glucose in the blood. In diabetes, blood sugar levels become too high and a healthy or normal balance is thrown off balance. My research has found that type 2 diabetes often occurs when you consume excessive amounts of refined sugar over a long period of time. Unlike type 1 diabetes, where the pancreas produces very little or no insulin, in type 2 diabetes the pancreas produces enough insulin, but the cells are resistant to the hormone.
Research linking sugar consumption to weight gain and gain in type 2 diabetes
according to dr Sanjay Basu Ph.D., an epidemiologist at Stanford University, quoted in the Stanford Medicine Newsletter in an article by Digitale (2013): Researchers from Stanford University School of Medicine, the University of California-Berkley and the University of California-San Francisco examined Data on sugar availability and diabetes rates from 175 countries over the past decade. After counting obesity and a variety of other factors, the researchers found that increased sugar levels in a population’s diet were associated with higher rates of diabetes, independent of obesity rates. Their study was published on February 27 PLUS ONE. 
FB Hu and VS Malik (2010) stated: Research suggests that consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages (SSB) is a risk factor for overweight and obesity and for several cardiometabolic diseases, especially T2DM. 
overweight and obesity
The human body is a remarkable mechanism capable of healing itself when given the right foods. Lifestyle medicine, the use of healthy nutrition to help the body heal itself, is gaining importance in the medical field. As a diabetes researcher and lifestyle strategist who once nearly lost his life to type 2 diabetes, my life-saving research showed that prediabetes can be reversed and type 2 diabetes can be put into remission with a three-pronged approach. This contains:
Low-calorie diabetic diet: This makes weight loss easier.
Diabetic Exercises: Exercises designed for diabetics facilitate burning off the excess sugar buildup in the body as well as weight loss. It does this in such a way that once the sugar is burned, the body converts it to fat for energy. The first fat to be burned is the thin layer that surrounds red blood cells. Once this layer of fat is burned, red blood cells, which are responsible for transporting sugar to the muscles, are exposed and begin to absorb and transport sugar to the muscles. The insulin resistance of the cells is restored. The diabetes is then in remission.
Vitamins: A diabetic often needs vitamin supplementation. Vitamin supplementation can speed up the effectiveness of the above two methods.
The man acknowledged as the father of mathematics, Abn al Haytham, also known as Al Hazeen, taught his students the importance of evidence-based reasoning. After consulting with several health practitioners, I conducted my own research and experiments. I was determined to lose weight and reverse my type 2 diabetes. Developing my three-pronged approach enabled me to achieve my goals in just three weeks. This became my direct proof of its effectiveness and confirmation of the growing claim that addressing the problem of excess sugar in the body and weight loss can reverse T2DM. In 2009, when I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, I had a blood sugar level of 21.7 millimoles/la, a life-threatening level. After three weeks on my program, my blood sugar levels were normal. Through continued practice of the specific exercises given in my weight loss/diabetes program, I have gone from being 220 pounds overweight to my suggested healthy weight of 180 pounds. To this day I am Type 2 Diabetes free and at the same healthy weight.
The above three steps have been approved through Prof. SM RAJENDRAN. MD, FRCP(GLASS), D.Sc. and Professor of Diabetology and Medicine and are available to the public worldwide on the website Only for diabetics. Adhering to the above three-pronged system can certainly and easily enable a prediabetic to lose weight and overcome their condition. It can also bring diabetes into remission while enabling weight loss, which I have achieved myself. Achieving these goals further leads to a reduction in the likelihood of developing heart disease or having a stroke; two of the leading causes of death for diabetics and obese individuals.
As a lifestyle strategist trained in the culinary field, my personal experience of losing weight and curing type 2 diabetes using lifestyle medicine – healthy eating, exercise and vitamins – was presented WebMD in 2016.
dealing with diabetes
Most commonly, type 2 diabetes is treated through the use of prescription medications. Treating diabetes in this way has led to the spread of the reversible condition around the world. Treating diabetes means that the victim will always remain a diabetic. As you manage diabetes, you can use the three-pronged approach of lifestyle medicine to reverse your condition and achieve weight loss. You should also consult with your doctor when adding this method to your lifestyle.
