I personally believe that when we pay attention to our bodies, we will know when we're at risk for this disease. And I also believe that we can be cured of it, even without traditional meds.That's one of the reasons I continue to keep this EATING HEALTHY NUTRITIOUS FOOD site going.
For instance, my husband and I both do not do well when we eat much carbohydrates, and refined sugars,like high fructose corn syrup, do a real whammy on us. I know for a fact that it was our poor eating habits of younger days that have caused a sensitivity to carbs and sugar.
When the mainstay of your diet is refined carbs and sugars for a continual cycle of 20, 30, or 40 years, your pancreas gets extremely overworked in insulin production. I have a friend who is 39 years old and used to live off of carbonated sugar drinks, snack foods, sweets, and pasta and potatoes. He developed diabetes about 4 years ago. Do you think his diet may have been a contributing factor?...YOU BET!!
