The key to reducing your risk of developing diabetes

... is having a healthy diet.

If you eat a healthy diet with the right mineral balance, you can avoid these risks. How much should you eat? If you are overweight or obese, you might consider making dramatic changes to your diet to lose weight. However, if you are not overweight, but have diabetes, changes in your diet can significantly improve your risk of developing diabetes.

In addition, you may consider making changes to your medication — some medications can worsen sugar or salt sensitivity. A diet of lean protein, high quality fat, and complex carbohydrates can help you manage your blood glucose levels. What is lean protein? L-leucine, one of the most common amino acids in protein, functions to break down protein into glucose. When your blood glucose levels are low, you need more carbohydrates to not become hypoglycemic.

Therefore, if you have diabetes, or are at risk due to poor diet and exercise, your muscles will not get the chance they need to repair themselves. When you are dehydrated, your metabolism slows — and this slows the absorption of nutrients and water. Your digestion and assimilation of nutrients and water will also be compromised. But how do you avoid this? Keep a healthy balance of minerals in your diet for optimal results. These substances are essential in supporting the process of heating, digestion, absorption, and metabolism.
