90- Strategies to Improve Type 2 Diabetes with Dr. Nicki Steinberger

The rates of Type 2 Diabetes is increasing drastically in the States. The medical costs for a diabetic are more than $14,000 per year, which can make it a very expensive illness to have.

However, in most cases, Type 2 Diabetes is a lifestyle-related illness. Meaning we have the capacity to prevent or reduce symptoms of Diabetes before diagnosis occurs.

This is where regular checkups to test blood markers like Hemoglobin A1C and fasting glucose tests can be a big help in monitoring your health to make sure you don't develop Diabetes.

I use a blood glucose monitor to check in with my body every now and then just to make sure my blood sugar is under control. It is an easy at home option to use to see how you are responding to the different foods you eat.


Can Type 2 Diabetes Be Reversed?

This is a big question to answer, and the simple answer is yes if you follow appropriate dietary guidelines and reduce inflammatory responses in your body.

But the current information that conventional medicine provides you when you are diagnosed might not be the most helpful information.

If you learn to manage your blood sugar levels, which means making dietary changes that aren't full of carbs, then you are on the right track.

We talk about other options that can be helpful in this episode.
