Type 2 Diabetes At The FitFarms Weight Loss Retreat
Diabetes Type 2 is caused by a problem with the pancreas not being able to produce enough insulin. If you're overweight or have a bad diet and do not exercise you will be more prone to developing type 2 diabetes.
Overcoming and avoiding diabetes type two is possible though, and we focus on achieving that at FitFarms the weight loss retreat.
The better your physical health the more likely you will avoid diabetes. You can achieve this by improving your physical fitness through your diet and exercise routine.
To improve your health it’s important to maintain a healthy balanced diet, cutting out processed food and make sure your meals are full of nutrients and vitamins. While also maintaining a frequent exercise plan to sustain a healthy weight. The FitFarms Nutrition Programme has been designed to balance blood sugar levels to help reverse type 2 diabetes.
Looking out for early symptoms of diabetes is important, as it is something you can catch early and prevent from developing. The symptoms include, having the urge to go to the toilet more frequently, feeling sleepless/tired, blurred vision and unusual weight fluctuation.
Catching it early is important as it has bad effects on your physical health. High blood sugar levels will cause damage to your heart, kidneys, eyes, nerves and feet.
Diabetes can have a negative impact in developing health problems with your feet. As diabetes causes a increase in blood sugar levels it affects your blood circulation to your feet. This can lead to development of dry skin, yellow thickened nails and fungus growth often leading to athletes foot. Although athletes foot is treatable especially if caught early on, with anti fungal creams or prescribed medication.
Signs your developing athletes foot include, a tingling sensation, burning or pain and loss of hair on your feet and lower legs. If you do have diabetes or are at risk of developing it it’s important to look out for these symptoms to get it treated early as possible.
Often people get confused between type 2 and 1 diabetes but there is a significant difference. Diabetes type 1 is often developed because of genetics rather than controllable factors. It’s caused by the pancreas not being able to produce insulin. This is treated by using insulin either through injections or a pump.
Diabetes type 2 is developed through being overweight and having a lack of physical exercise. It creates high blood sugar levels which is caused by a low production of insulin. Type 2 diabetes is treated by maintaining a balanced diet, cutting down on processed food and added sugars. Also increasing your physical fitness levels will reverse type 2 diabetes.
