Pre-diabetes is a condition wherein your blood glucose levels are higher than they ought to be but not so high that you are diagnosed as diabetic. Research proposes that up to 70% of people with pre-diabetes proceed to develop full type 2 diabetes.

Yet, this implies 30% figure out how to stop the advancement of diabetes before it turns into a chronic disease… Thus, if you have been diagnosed as pre-diabetic, growing out and out diabetes isn’t inescapable.

You can’t change your past behavior, your age or your genes however you can change your way of life… how you disport yourself and what you eat and drink.

How your digestive system functions?

The foods you eat are for the most part a blend of carbohydrates, proteins and fats in different extents. A bit of meat, for instance, contains for the most part protein and fats. Vegetables, for example, potatoes contain loads of carbohydrates.

When you digest a bit of food, it is separated into its principle segments… carbs, proteins, and fats. These components are then separated further in your digestive system and discharged into your circulatory system (blood-stream) which conveys them around your body.

Your vitality originates from glucose. Glucose is only a simple sugar. In any case, it is your body’s essential source of energy.

Most glucose originates from digesting the sugar and starch in carbohydrates which you get from food, for example, rice, pasta, grains, and loaves of bread, potatoes, fruits, and vegetables. The glucose created by digestion in your stomach is assimilated into your circulatory system which conveys it to your body’s cells.

Glucose is the fuel for your cells… it controls your movements, thoughts and pretty much everything else you do. So as to power your cells, glucose needs to get into them. It can just do this with the assistance of insulin.

Insulin is a hormone produced by your pancreas. The pancreas discharges insulin into your circulatory system where it goes around your body and gets together with glucose on the same trip. The purpose of insulin is to empower glucose to enter your cells.

To do this, insulin attaches itself to a receptor in the surface of the cell. This makes the cell membrane to permit glucose to enter the cell. The cell would then be able to utilize the glucose as its fuel. This glucose-insulin system needs to work appropriately if you are to be healthy.

In the event that the insulin does not carry out its responsibility of ‘opening the cell entryway’ for glucose, the glucose won’t almost certainly get into the cell… also, the cell will come up short on fuel.

Diabetes is a condition wherein the glucose-insulin system does not work accurately.

There are two noteworthy types of diabetes: (a) type 1 and (b) type 2. Over 90% of diabetics have type 2 diabetes.

In type 1 diabetes the pancreas does not create any insulin or, best case scenario, practically nothing. Type 1 can’t be restored. The main way these diabetics can survive is by taking regular shots of insulin.

In type 2 diabetes, the pancreas produces insulin which is discharged into the circulation system. Be that as it may, when the insulin lands at a cell it experiences difficulty attaching itself to a receptor. So it can’t prompt the cell layer to open and permit glucose to enter the cell.

Insulin resistance is the condition in which insulin is unable to attach itself to cell receptors.

Envision a key attempting to slide into a lock in an entryway. On the off chance that the lock is stuck… state, with a bit of chewing gum… the key can’t get in. There is nothing wrong with the key and nothing amiss with the lock. But before the key can get in, the lock has to be cleaned out.

One of the primary purposes behind insulin resistance is having cell ‘doors’ that are stuck with fat. The only way to ‘unjam’ them is to omit all fat as far as possible from your diet for four to six weeks (at least) until the cell receptors are free of fat.

So what do you need to do to prevent type 2 diabetes creating from pre-diabetes to the all-out chronic condition… with its raised dangers of heart attacks, strokes, visual impairment, kidney transplants, leg removals, and other awful conditions?
