Tips on Preventing the Progression to Diabetes

Preventing the road to diabetes starts with food:

  • Reduce carbohydrate intake, keep your net carbohydrates, minus fiber, under 50 grams a day
  • Consume just enough protein for your body weight and energy expenditure, not in excess
  • Replace these with greater amounts of high quality fat.
  • Correct your omega 3-to-omega 6 ratio imbalance. Omega-3, is found in fatty fish such as wild Alaskan salmon, sardines, anchovies, fish and krill oil. Omega-6, is primarily found in processed vegetable & seed oils and thus processed and fried foods
  • Choose organic, non-GMO, fresh, and local foods where possible

Exercise & Movement

Exercise is a powerful way to lower your insulin levels and reverse leptin resistance. Excessive sitting and sedentary behavior is the “new” smoking. Install a standing-sitting desk in your work place, walk while you talk, be mindful of taking breaks and moving around.

Optimize important Nutrients

Vitamin D, vitamin K2, vitamin B12, folate, magnesium, and vitamin C are all essential for optimal health and avoiding diabetes.

 Optimize your gut microbiome

  • Reduce NSAIDs, antibiotics, and avoid toxins found in foods, personal care products, scented products, household cleaners, garden supplies, air, and water.
  • Increase fermented foods, and consider using prebiotics, probiotics, digestive enzymes, and bitters.

Optimize sleep

Consider sleep hygiene and aim for 7 to 8 hours per night.

Monitor your fasting insulin level

<5 or lower is the desired serum level. The higher your level, the worse your insulin sensitivity.

Optimize your physiology

  • We are electrical being and optimal functioning requires light, negative electrons, adequate electrolytes, and touch from another living being.
  • Ensure adequate hydration with filtered water and sea salt.

  1. Great article Petra. Thanks for the wonderful tips. What are your views on practicing Yoga for fighting diabetes? Some yoga asanas like Dhanurasana, Surya Namaskar, Bhujangasana, etc also play a major role in keeping diabetes under control. And apart from this, what we are still lacking of is the diabetes awareness among common people.
