Diabetes is a sickness that affects almost all organs and systems of the body. It has ravaged lives via its degenerative symptoms. Once the presence of glucose in the blood becomes commonplace, a host of diseases start to bother the diabetes sufferer. But the times have changed.
Gone are the days when diabetics had to suffer in silence. Nowadays, a plethora of ameliorative methodologies have come to the rescue of those with insulin resistance. Firstly, the cutting out of refined carbohydrates from the diet has a miraculous effect. Evenly spaced medium-sized meals keep blood sugar levels constant too.
There are also certain foods that ought to be consumed on a regular basis since they cut the chances of contracting diabetes. They include: tea, chocolate, red wine and berries. Colorful fruits and vegetables contain flavonoids, which are important chemicals that prevent the occurrence of heart attack and type 2 diabetes.
An experiment was conducted which showed that women who consumed blue-hued and red-colored berries every day were less liable to have their health damaged by inflammation or the curse of insulin resistance. And now medical science has truly taken the bull by the horns.
A bionic pancreas is in the making. It will put an end to the complaints of diabetics since their hormonal balance will be restored thanks to the wonders of the latest technology. Then maybe diabetes will go the way of such diseases as the Black Plague which haunted the middle ages.
