Did you know that over 4.9 million people are currently living with diabetes in the UK? That’s according to a recent analysis from Diabetes.org.uk, whose findings show that people with Type 2 Diabetes are 50% more likely to die prematurely.
Taking care of your blood sugar levels is essential to ensure you stay healthy. As a condition caused by consuming excess carbs, sugars and other processed foods, Diabetes Type 2 can have many damaging effects on the body.
With Halloween coming up, it’s tempting to overindulge in sweet treats from well-meaning loved ones. However, eating sugary foods such as sweets, biscuits, chocolates, and cakes may be more trick than a treat when it comes to your health.
Our Lead Nutritionist Lindsay Powers has a live webinar coming up on Zoom next week that will explore diet and lifestyle advice in greater depth. Register Here For More Information.
Be Mindful of How Much Sugar You Consume
Research shows that high sugar levels in your bloodstream can damage your immune system and your organs. Over time, your body converts excess glucose into fat, leading to weight gain.
When blood glucose levels are extra high, the body immediately instructs your pancreas to produce insulin which is programmed to dump excess glucose into your cells.
With excess sugar in your cells, your body stops responding appropriately to insulin. This can lead your pancreas to start pumping out even more insulin. Eventually, the overworked pancreas will break down; blood sugar levels rise, leading to the onset of Type 2 Diabetes and heart disease.
As diabetes is mainly a lifestyle condition, it makes sense that to avoid its damaging effects on the body, it’s essential to review your daily habits too.
Following a Ketogenic Diet Can Reverse Most Diseases
There is strong evidence to suggest that eating a ketogenic diet -i.e. a low carbohydrate and low sugar diet will start to reverse most diseases. A report from the Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition has reported that a low carbohydrate diet is best for people with Type 2 Diabetes.
The comprehensive review included around 600 peer-reviewed scientific reports and was carried out over seven years, reflecting how long it takes to consider evidence ahead of changing dietary guidelines.
Wondering how to get started? The good news is that there are many healthy low-carbohydrate alternatives that you can include in your diet instead.
We suggest reading our free ebook, ‘Helping Diabetes Type 2, By The Book’ by our late founder Robert Redfern, as this outlines a diet, nutrient and lifestyle plan to support your health recovery.

Researchers have found that taking Cinnamon may help to lower blood sugar levels by imitating the effects of insulin and increasing glucose transport into cells. This may help to promote better blood sugar balance, making it ideal for people with diabetes.
Numerous studies also support that taking a Cinnamon supplement is more effective than diet alone in lowering blood glucose levels.
Taking a high-quality Ceylon cinnamon supplement is recommended because not only does it contain antioxidant compounds called proanthocyanidins that can strengthen capillaries, but they have also been shown to provide antioxidant protection against heart disease and cancer.
For all of these reasons, taking Cinnamon is recommended for anyone looking to improve their blood sugar levels, cardiovascular levels and heart health.
