Today, there are few health problems capturing the attention of the American people like diabetes, and particularly type 2 diabetes. This potentially fatal health condition, which can emerge at any life stage, is most popularly associated with weight gain and obesity. As Americans continue to indulge in high-calorie, high-sugar, and high-fat foods, their battle with the bulge and the diabetes risk intensifies.
The good news is that treatments for diabetes emerge almost every day. One option for treating the condition is to use vitamins and supplements, some of which have been shown to have a significant impact on maintaining insulin levels and preventing the dangerous symptoms associated with diabetes from getting out of control…
People with type 1 or type 2 diabetes often have problems maintaining normal magnesium levels because as blood glucose levels rise, magnesium is expelled from the body through urine.
That’s a problem because magnesium (from foods like beans and nuts, leafy greens, brown rice and whole wheat bread) plays an important role in processing carbohydrates in an effective way. When magnesium levels are low, the body’s ability to properly process insulin can be affected, leading to dangerous complications for diabetics.
