It is estimated that 2 million Canadians are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes which is often referred to as late adult-onset diabetes. There may actually be many more as it is a chronic condition with many people being unaware of the disease until symptoms such as weight gain, sugar cravings, and poor wound healing have become apparent.
Type 2 diabetes develops when the body has been subject to high blood sugar levels during a prolonged period of time, usually over several years. To be able to use sugar as energy the body produces insulin. As a result of a high sugar diet and the constant demand for insulin, the body tires and can no longer produce enough insulin to match the high blood sugar levels.
However type 2 diabetes can be managed well through lifestyle and nutritional changes, which when combined reduces blood sugar levels, bringing the body back into balance. Not only does this result in healthy blood sugar levels but also weight loss.
Continued glucose monitor (CGM) such as a Freestyle monitor, is an extremely useful tool, that can really help people understand how their body processes different foods and how their lifestyle and activity levels, will also influence their blood sugar levels.
Working with clients who have a monitor, we use the data to understand how different factors, such as stress, meal times, exercise, carbohydrate quality and content of meals, and different foods all affect their blood sugar levels differently. We can then create a meal plan while incorporating some lifestyle changes which will keep their blood sugar levels in balance.
Education is key to understanding this disease and taking the appropriate steps, will ultimately lead to a healthier lifestyle.
