I know lots of people who had been diagnosed to have diabetes for over 10 years. Because they have dutifully changed their lifestyles, diet and consistently engaged in exercises, they are no different from every other person without diabetes. They look very healthy and very strong. You too can if you have diabetes just so far as you also change your lifestyle, diet and engage in lots of exercises.
It’s very necessary to keep treating your diabetes so that you can avoid some of the other horrible illnesses that can arise. Such illnesses include the dreaded kidney disease. If you don’t effectively treat and manage your diabetes, you are setting yourself up for more trouble that can arise if it leads to these other illnesses.
If you can’t seem to keep your stress level down as a diabetic patient, try the deep breathing exercise. It’s a very wonderful way of keeping your stress level down. Lots of people say it works very well for them. How does it work? Simple. Spend some time each day to take in four or more deep breaths, a couple of time. This will help to make your respiration and circulation enter a kind of relaxed mode and keep your stress level down.
Want to hear some good news about diabetes? Here goes – there are now lots of very effective treatments for diabetes that it’s plain foolish for anyone with diabetes not to take advantage of them. They include – Thiazolidinediones (for helping diabetic patients become more receptive to insulin), Biguanides (for decreasing the glucose that’s being produced by the liver of diabetic patients), D-phenylalanine derivatives (for stimulating as well as hastening the production of insulin by the pancreas), Alpha-glucosidase inhibitors (for effectively slowing down starch absorption) and a host of others.
When taking fruits and vegetables as a diabetic patient, you should include a pretty wide range, rather than just a few favorites. Such wide range can include apples, bananas, carrots, oranges, red cabbage and beans.
