Diabetes is preventable

Diabetes (also called diabetes or diabetes mellitus) is preventable through lifestyle changes. In short, this is a disease that occurs because the regulation of blood sugar levels is disturbed. Therefore, this is mainly due to glucose-rich foods and foods with fast and high carbohydrates. Next to that, people eat too much in between meals, we do this without any conscious. This way of grazing causes the blood glucose level to accumulate even more in height. The hormone insulin plays a major role in this because insulin transports the glucose coming from food from the blood to the cells. Insulin then opens the cells by binding to the cell receptors, allowing the glucose to enter the cell. From this process, the cells can then supply the body with energy. 

Diabetics have this mechanism disturbed by years of incorrect lifestyle in which, as they say, there has been an excessive consumption of carbohydrates and sugars. Before Diabetes occurs, there is a long-standing situation of insulin resistance. In this situation, the receptors of the cells are no longer sensitive to the insulin and the cell no longer opens to transport the glucose inside. This then eventually results in Diabetes. Insulin resistance is characterized by the development of visceral fats around the abdomen. These are fats that you can’t grasp and settle inside between the organs. It is the dangerous pathogenic fat that develops high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease. The accumulation of fat is very recognizable, you have slim legs and arms but a larger bulging, usually hard belly.

Yet slim people can also have insulin resistance, but this is less advanced. 

The symptoms of insulin resistance 

  • Fatigue 
  • Joint problems 
  • Memory and concentration problems 
  • Blurred vision
  • Fatigue in the brain,
  • Having a sudden strong craving for sugar
  • Behavioral changes, 
  • Dizziness, lightheadedness
  • Feeling of cotton wool in the head
  • Fluid retention (edema) 
  • Snoring, 
  • Sleep apnea 
  • High blood pressure 
  • Sore Muscles  
  • Eye problems 
  • Fat accumulation around the abdomen.

With increasing insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes can eventually develop. 50% of people with insulin resistance get type 2 diabetes if they do not know how to remedy their issue. Type 2 diabetes is a disease in which the pancreas no longer produces insulin or when the body can no longer process it properly. This then results in blood sugar levels remaining high which is called hyperglycemia and thus the pancreas becomes exhausted. This exhaustion is the result of the pancreas having to work too hard for years during insulin resistance to keep blood sugar levels low. 

There are two types of diabetes: diabetes mellitus type 1 and type 2 

Actually there are three types of diabetes, diabetes type 3 is a recent new name for Alzheimer’s disease. We are writing this article on Diabetes type 1 and 2. Our epigenetic specialist is writing an article about Alzheimer’s disease.

Type 1 diabetes:

This is the genetically transmitted form of Diabetes or due to impairment of the pancreas by an autoimmunity problem. Note for these, lifestyle changes don’t really work in the sense that it doesn’t solve your diabetes. The lifestyle changes will optimize you in health, though, and you need less insulin.

  • Type 1 diabetes often occurs suddenly at a young age and must always be treated with insulin.

Type 2 diabetes:

When the pancreas is no longer able to produce a correct amount of insulin due to the conditions described above, we speak of Diabetes type 2. The disease usually develops later in life, where often administration with insulin is not necessary. This is because a proper lifestyle change helps to regulate sugar metabolism again. Interventions such as cutting out fast carbohydrates, sugar-containing foods, alcohol, intermittent fasting, more exercise and some support with supplements, has tremendous good effects. A ketogenic diet where you lose weight, so for example by intake of reduced carbohydrates also helps to increase insulin sensitivity and thus lower blood sugar.

As described above, diabetes 2 is preceded by a long period of hyperinsulinemia. 

In hyperinsulinemia, blood glucose levels are still within normal values while insulin levels are elevated. This is caused by insulin resistance which is seen as the precursor to diabetes. Insulin resistance is totally reversible through lifestyle changes. 

  • Type 2 diabetes is a combination of a depleted pancreas and the imbalance between a surplus of glucose in the blood and nevertheless the deficit of glucose in the cells can no longer be corrected. 
  • The development of Type 2 Diabetes will be very slowly, so slowly that many people have diabetes without even noticing it. No attention is paid to it because it is dismissed as a symptom of aging. So it is possible to have diabetes for years without ever being diagnosed. However, awareness of this is really necessary because a chronically high blood sugar level can be harmful to your kidneys, eyes, feet and cardiovascular system.
  • The aim of the treatment of type 2 diabetes is to reduce insulin resistance, by reducing the fast carbohydrates in our diet and thereby reducing insulin consumption. Whereby, there is a recovery in the insulin sensitivity of the cell. This allows the blood sugar to recover and become stable again.

Because it is very important to recognize the symptoms early enough, we list them below.


Type 1 diabetes:

  • Rapid weight loss for no apparent reason
  • Diminished immunity
  • Nausea (sometimes vomiting)
  • Excessive urine production
  • Thirsty and drinking too much
  • Very hungry and eating too much
  • Blurred vision

Type 2 diabetes:

  • Fatigue
  • Very thirsty and urinate often
  • Eye problems (burning eyes, red eyes or poor vision)
  • Wounds that heal too slowly or even not
  • Shortness of breath
  • Pain in the legs when walking
  • Recurring infections
  • Gram-negative-bacterial overgrowth, for example Candida
  • Neuropathic symptoms in the body, such as tingling, but also pain
  • Low blood sugars, hypoglycemia where you become shaky without food
  • Narrowing of the blood vessels in the retina
  • Cravings for fast carbohydrates
  • Craving for sweet foods
  • Difficulty skipping meals

Causes of Diabetes

Type 1 diabetes:

  • The destruction of the beta cells in the pancreas by the body’s own immune system, thus an autoimmune problem
  • An inborn deficiency of beta cells in the pancreas this is because our genes are not yet adapted to eating many carbohydrates

Type 2 diabetes:

  • An unhealthy diet with lots of sugars, fruit juices, soft drinks with sugar and other fast carbohydrates, for example white rice, white bread. Nutrients that lack fiber. 
  • Eating too much at once, not being able to listen to your body anymore whether you have enough for that moment. This turns off the hormones leptin and ghrelin.
  • Too many eating moments in a day and not being aware of it, eating at regular times, is very important.
  • Obesity, this creates a lot of inflammatory substances in the body that accelerate the formation of diabetes 
  • Too little exercise, mainly sedentary life.
  • Smoking, drugs and alcohol.
  • Genetic factors can also play a role.
  • Chronic stress, but also early life stress! This is stress from childhood that is stored in the body. The stress creates the imbalanced hormones.
  • Pregnancy (risk factor for mother and child in later years)

Lifestyle changes to prevent or remedy diabetes

Healthy and varied diet is a must: 

  • Avoid refined sugars and especially sweeteners. Light products are not healthy for our brain, but they also make us much more hungry than normal. Stevia, but only the purest stevia, is not dangerous for blood sugars. So avoid soft drinks with sugar and sweeteners, but also especially fruit juices. Opt for coffee, tea and simple water.
  • Reduce the number of eating moments per day, we graze too much.
  • Fewer eating moments ensures stable blood sugar levels. The body can then rebalance each time between meals. It thus prevents the accumulation of blood sugars in your blood.
  • Eat foods rich in Magnesium. This is particularly significant for a stable blood sugar level. Magnesium is found mainly in fatty fish, nuts, fruit, kelp and cocoa and cocoa products. Magnesium is also abundant in whole grain cereals, but many people are now intolerant to these. If you have a lot of abdominal discomfort, leave out products containing gluten. Magnesium also increases the glucose tolerance factor, so is very good for the absorption of glucose in the cell. You can also take a supplement Nano magnesium what will be absorbed right into the cell.
  • Choose intermittent fasting and go for a time ketogenic diets, this greatly restores insulin sensitivity. Periodic fasting not only leads to weight loss, but also to a stable blood sugar level. It is even so that when you can effortlessly not eat for 16 hours, you can say with certainty that your blood sugar level is normal. You are then not insulin resistant, and you do not develop diabetes.
  • Make sure you get enough exercise, with half an hour of brisk walking a day you are also exercising.
  • Exercise promotes insulin sensitivity.
  • Make sure you get a good night’s sleep. If this doesn’t work, then it’s useful to investigate why you’re not sleeping.
  • Not sleeping causes the insulin sensitivity to decrease. You then have less energy during the day, which you unconsciously supplement by eating much more. Read our article about this

Drink green tea or take a supplement with it:

This is good for glucose metabolism and weight management. 


After reading this article, it must be completely clear that you do not have to develop diabetes later in life. It is simple, choose a healthy lifestyle and choose for your own body. If you maintain a healthy lifestyle, then your immunity will also remain much stronger, which is a good thing in these days.

Just think and stay healthy!
