Diabetes is one of the greatest epidemics of our time partly due to the quality of our diets. More than 4 million people in the UK have been diagnosed with Diabetes and THIS needs to change.
So what is the difference between Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes?
You may associate type 1 and type 2 diabetes as having higher than normal blood sugar levels, however, the cause and development of the conditions are actually different.
Here is what Diabetes.co.uk say are the differences:
Type 1 Usually diagnosed in childhood, not associated with excess body weight it cannot be controlled without taking insulin.
Type 2 usually diagnosed over 30 years, often associated with excess body weight it is possible to come off the medication through up to date diet protocols and regular exercises.
Can it be cured without medication?
Research from the university of Newcastle states that type 2 diabetes is “not inevitably life-long”:
“Our work has shown that type 2 diabetes is not inevitably progressive and life-long. We have demonstrated that in people who have had type 2 diabetes for 4 years or less, major weight loss returns insulin secretion to normal.”
“A crucial point is that individuals have different levels of tolerance of fat within liver and pancreas… once a person crosses their personal fat threshold, type 2 diabetes develops. Once they successfully lose weight and go below their personal fat threshold, diabetes will disappear.”
This is brilliant news and shows that the rise in this crisis can be beaten with weight loss rather than medication.
Sources say “low-fat eating” fad could be to blame:
“Many experts now believe that the recent surge in diabesity (diabetes plus obesity) has been fuelled by an obsession with low-fat eating, leading to over-consumption of cheap and easily digestible carbohydrates. Rapidly absorbed by your body, these create an instant spike in blood sugar levels, which then crash, making you hungry again and eventually causing your body to become resistant to insulin, the hormone that regulates our blood sugar.”
They go on to state processed foods and too many natural sugars are also to blame backing up our KSFL programme. Our programme is very close to and works along with the Mediterranean diet (eating good carbs high in fibre and lots of vegetables).
“A recent review of 20 research trials, involving a total of more than 3,000 people with Type 2 diabetes, found that if you want to lose weight and improve your cholesterol and blood sugar control, then your best bet is diet High in good fats, medium protein and low carbohydrates .
A very recent finding is that women who followed a diet rich in olive oil had 68 per cent less chance of developing breast cancer than those on a low-fat diet.
