Type 2 Diabetes Prevention – Type 2 Diabetes? Don’t Be Scammed with These Kidney Supplements
Did you know that around 40 percent of people with diabetes go on to develop chronic kidney disease?
No? Well, it’s one of the most common and most serious consequences of type 2 diabetes.
Obviously, this is a nasty cycle that needs breaking to avoid any serious fatal secondary diseases related to diabetes.
Previously, it was thought there were a number of supplements that could help prevent kidney disease in diabetes sufferers, but a new study published in the Journal JAMA has just debunked this.
Kidney disease is serious. It means that your kidneys can no longer properly remove waste and fluid from your body. The consequent buildup of waste is toxic.
Many previous studies have shown that vitamin D and fish oil supplements have anti-inflammatories, antioxidants, and other properties that may prevent the occurrence of kidney disease in diabetes sufferers, and researchers were keen to find out whether this was true or not.
They recruited 1,312 patients with type 2 diabetes who had no obvious cardiovascular disease, kidney disease, or cancer. The researchers followed them for five years, testing their blood and urine before the study to establish their glomerular filtration rate.
The participants were divided into four groups: one received real vitamin D and fish oil supplements, one received fake vitamin D and fish oil supplements, one received a real vitamin D but a fake fish oil supplement, and one that received a real fish oil but a fake vitamin D supplement.
They found an average decline in kidney function of around 12-15 percent over the five years, and this did not differ between the four groups.
Therefore, these two supplements cannot help to preserve kidney function in people with type 2 diabetes.
That’s not to say that Vitamin-D and Omega-3 is not helpful for other complications of type 2 diabetes. They’re just no good for kidney disease.
Type 2 Diabetes Prevention – This Candy Halts Type 2 Diabetes
Too often when talking about healthy living, we have to give up on the food and things we love the most.
So, I love it when new studies come out proving the most delicious things healthy.
A new study, published in the Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry, reveals a specific, delicious candy that can significantly fight type 2 diabetes.
…even if your diet is not so healthy!
They discovered that a compound that naturally occurs in cocoa can fight off type 2 diabetes.
The researchers extracted data cells from rats and injected them with various flavanol compounds derived from cocoa.
While the cells injected with a complete cocoa extract and with oligomeric or polymeric procyanidin-rich extract showed no improvement in function, those treated with a monomeric catechin-rich extract immediately started producing more insulin.
To add to their findings, they fed this monomeric catechin compound to rats on a high-fat diet and compared them with rats not given this substance.
The treated rats had lower blood sugar levels and were less obese than the untreated ones… despite the bad diet.
There are a few problems with simply eating cocoa, however.,
- When they used a complete cocoa extract, it failed to work, which probably means that the amount required to stimulate your beta cells is higher than you can obtain when eating cocoa or cocoa chocolate. It was only one part of cocoa, monomeric catechin, that improved diabetes.
- Cocoa is bitter and normally becomes appetizing only once you mix it with a lot of sugar. Sugar is the substance that increases blood sugar and compromises insulin secretion the most, which is then completely self-defeating for a diabetic to consume.
So, if you’re going to consume cocoa, try to get very dark (preferable over 90%) chocolate.
Then combine that chocolate with other foods high in monomeric catechin. Such as green tea, apples, pears, red wine, guavas, blackberries, raspberries, and cherries.

Type 2 Diabetes Prevention – Curing Type 2 Diabetes – Without Diet or Exercises
Danish researchers recently revealed, in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, a common syndrome that increases your risk of type 2 diabetes by a scary 400%.
What’s more, it has nothing to do with bad diet or lack of exercise…
…meaning that you may be able to cure your type 2 diabetes without changing your menu.
Consequently, Danish researchers decided to find out whether women with this condition are more likely than others to develop type 2 diabetes.
This interferes with her ability to ovulate, and causes the growth of body and facial hair, acne, obesity, infertility, and irregular menstrual periods.
This means that those with the condition were four times as likely as those without the condition to suffer from diabetes.
Women with PCOS are often prescribed the oral contraceptive pill or other hormonal treatments to fight their condition. This will most likely help for type 2 diabetes as well since it tends to reduce BMI and improve insulin sensitivity.
But for the most of us, who don’t have PCOS, we need to look for other methods to cure type 2 diabetes.
