Proper Diet can control diabetes
Dr. Jagannath Dixit, who has been teaching for 26 years and has won several national and national awards, said that if the level of insulin in the blood increased, it could carry many health risks.
Once the insulin level increases, the body uses glucose as energy. and if the insulin level decreases, the body uses fatty acids. Since initial insulin secretion can not be controlled voluntarily, one option is to control the number of times insulin is secreted into the bloodstream after each episode of consumption.
Since more and less the same amount of insulin is secreted, regardless of the amount of food consumed, reducing the frequency of consumption can reduce the level of insulin.
Dixit’s advice is to eat twice when you’re hungry. Between meals, you can drink water, buttermilk, diluted and homemade green or black tea (without sugar), coconut water and a tomato.
Dixit says that simply changing your lifestyle is effective in losing weight and reversing diabetes. “If you follow the practice of 2 meals a day, I am sure that not only will there be weight loss, but it will also help to control diabetes, and it is also possible to reverse diabetes,” said Dixit.
