Natural Diabetes Control-Intelligent Ways to Take Over

The diagnosis and then the actions

Lower blood sugar without medication, but first you must have enough information about this very common disease and know your options for natural diabetes control. It is the cause of too much sugar in the bloodstream. The reason for this is that our pancreas becomes compromised and stressed and does not produce sufficient amounts of insulin. Why is that?

When you consume food, glucose (sugar) is digested and delivered to our cells and when too much sugar is in the blood, the body isn’t able to convert glucose into the energy that you need and the result is diabetes which must be controlled or it leads to many other problems. Watch your cholesterol  and belly fat too!

You have been diagnosed with diabetes

Don’t worry because it doesn’t mean it will be a death sentence as long as you address it. So what’s the first step to take? Ok, you want to talk to your doctor or specialist about getting a glucometer to test your sugar and the appropriate testing supplies. Don’t be shy about asking your doctor any questions at all because you will need to learn what you have to. It will become routine.

Your physician will most likely be putting you on medication. If you smoke? Quit now! (I know. It’s easier said than done) I never smoked. (Good for me!) Start eating healthy ,lose weight, and take vitamin D. The right food is the medicine you want. I know from experience that this is not easy but I’m doing it. Exercise. Be careful if you’ve had any back pain issues.Do anything to keep moving. Walk, walk, walk! I bike ride more than anything and use my exercise bike indoors too. Blood pressure is important too, so check it often.

Sleep. Try and get 7-8 hours sleep and go to sleep at the same time every night. Your body and your eyes need rest.

Drink water… Drink water… Drink water…repeat


Pre-diabetes is when your blood glucose levels are higher than normal.  Although not an absolute given, research shows many people with this condition will develop Type 2 diabetes within 10 years.  These are likely the terms your health care provider will use.

When Should You Test For Pre-Diabetes?

  • If you are overweight and over age 45.
  • When you have a history of diabetes in your family.
  • You’ve got high blood pressure or blood lipids.
  • If you are African-American, Native-American, Hispanic or Asian.

Type 1 diabetes

  • Your body stops producing any insulin
  • The bodies’ immune system destroys the cells produced by insulin and attacks and destroys them
  • If type 1 is in the DNA, the pancreas stops working because the cells have been killed off
  • Your body converts glucose into energy and without insulin this is not possible

  Type 2 diabetes

  • Your body produces insufficient amounts of insulin
  • It’s not necessarily hereditary
  • Diagnosed in children and adults with no warning
  • Often occurs because of poor health choices
  • Poor eating choices and being overweight
  • Lack of exercise
  • Not drinking enough water
  The most common symptoms of diabetes are:
  • Craving for food and overeating
  • Excessive thirst
  • Excessive urination
  • Feeling tired with less energy
  • Blurry vision
  • Weight loss or weight gain
  • Numbness and/or tingling in the hands and feet
  • Fatigue

The risk factors

  • Age. You have more of a chance of being diagnosed when you age. Rising at 45 and rising much more at age 65
  • Additional health issues such as: high cholesterol and high blood pressure
  • Being overweight especially in the stomach area
  • Non existent exercise
  • Race or ethnicity: Hispanic, Asian, African Americans, and Native Americans are more at risk
  • Your family history. If it’s in your family, your odds rise to contract diabetes
Medications and what you should know

No matter what medication you’re taking, it’s extremely important to follow the directions. Talk to your doctor and call if you have any questions. After all, he or she is the expert. Anything additional such as over the counter medications should be discussed with them first. I never take anything without talking to my physician first, including any supplements. I don’t want anything conflicting with the medications that I’ve been prescribed.

If you are taking insulin, make sure it’s stored correctly and check the expiration date for sure. Be sure that you test your sugar levels as you’re instructed to do.

Things you should do

  • Make a plan and write it down
  • Always check your sugars daily or more and drink apple cider vinegar with honey.
  • Have a good relationship with your physician. If you aren’t on a personal level, seek another physician
  • Discuss ANY medications that are prescribed with your doctor and know if there are any complications down the road because of them. The goal at the end here will be to control your diabetes naturally and get off medications if possible.

  4. Hi, Good content on trying to control Diabetes. well put together from your own experience.
