Diabetes is something that affects Hispanics more than any other ethnic group. There are reports of people that were pre-diabetic and were able to reverse their diagnosis with lifestyle changes. But, is it possible to reverse type 2 diabetes?
One of the things people have to understand is that type 2 diabetes is a progressive illness that comes from years of elevated blood glucose levels. Typically, when people are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, they’ve had high glucose for 5 to 10 years, which means that they have lost the capability of making insulin naturally for a long time.
Most people that develop type 2 diabetes have poor lifestyle habits, like not eating healthy and not getting enough exercise. The best thing that you can do if diabetes runs in your family is delay the onset of pre-diabetes. Losing weight and reaching your goal weight can delay or prevent your chances of being diabetic.
