Can diet and exercise really reverse the effects of diabetes?

People often wonder whether or not diet and exercise can really reverse the effects of diabetes. The first thing we need to do is understand that diabetes actually comes in two forms. The first form of the disease is oftentimes referred to as type I diabetes. The second form of the disease is oftentimes referred to as type II diabetes.

Type I diabetes is a situation in which the pancreas, which is an organ in your body, doesn't produce a hormone called insulin. Because this hormone is not being produced at all, external intervention is necessary to help your body process sugar.

By contrast, type II diabetes is a situation in which your pancreas is producing some amount of insulin, but not enough to cope with all the sugar that's been consumed, or alternatively, it's producing insulin, but your body is so out of whack, that it's unable to properly use the insulin that it has the process the sugar that's been consumed.

Diet and exercise make a lot of sense for people, regardless of whether or not they have diabetes. However, numerous scientific studies have demonstrated that type II diabetes can be reversed as a result of a rigorous exercise regimen combined with meticulous attention to one's nutrition.

Now, you might be reading that, and you may be feeling a little bit discouraged. You may be thinking to yourself that maybe there's a magic pill you can take that will immediately make it okay for you to drink copious amounts of sugary soft drinks, to stuff yourself with candy bars, to get no exercise, and to somehow still be healthy. Let's keep it real no such pill exists.

Yes, it's true, diet and exercise really CAN reverse the effects of diabetes. However, you've got a be willing to make some significant lifestyle changes if you want to see results. And hey, if you need any motivation at all, all you need to do is spend some time researching what happens to people who choose to ignore their diabetes.

What you will quickly discover is a gruesome gallery of people who have had their arms and legs surgically hacked off because of the restricted blood flow to those limbs caused by diabetes. The lack of blood flow to those limbs then results in swelling, inevitable injury, infection, and the need to have the limbs removed. It's pretty gruesome, and it can be avoided. The decision is up to you.
