Type 2 diabetes - The one food you need to eat every day to keep the condition at bay

TYPE 2 diabetes is a common condition in the UK that causes a person’s blood sugar levels to become too high. One of the main causes is poor diet choices, so what should you be eating to prevent it developing? A recent study has found eating a particular food ever day can help.

Type 2 diabetes, if left untreated, can develop into more serious health conditions such as nerve damage, kidney problems and cardiovascular disease. But there are some simple lifestyle changes you can make to prevent the condition developing. Alongside exercising regularly and maintaining your weight, eating a healthy, balanced diet is key. As part of this, experts recommend eating an egg a day.

A recent study showed the consumption of one egg everyday seems to associate with a blood metabolite profile that is related to a lower risk of type 2 diabetes.

The study conducted by the University of Eastern Finland found that blood samples of men who ate more eggs included certain lipid molecules that positively correlated with the blood profile of men who remained free of type 2 diabetes.

Dr. Sarah Brewer, working in association with CuraLin, a type 2 diabetes supplement, explained the impact diabetes can have on your life and ways you can help control your blood sugar levels.

She said: “Being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes has a major impact on your life.

“It will involve major changes in your current diet and lifestyle to help bring your blood glucose level down to the target agreed with your doctor.

“If you don’t take steps to control your blood glucose levels, then you are at risk of serious long-term health complications, including loss of vision, heart disease, kidney disease, leg ulcers and even amputation.”

As well as consuming eggs, Dr. Brewer recommends following a healthy, more plant-based diet (low fibre, low-glycemic index with only healthy carbs such as wholegrains, pulses, fruit and vegetables), low-fat dairy products and oily fish.

“You should aim to lose at least some excess weight,” advised Dr. Brewer.

“If you are classed as obese and manage to lose more than five per cent of your body weight you may regain blood glucose control.”

But if you’re not a fan of eggs, Dr. Brewer recommends taking a supplement - CuraLin.

She said: “CuraLin is a natural blend of 10 Ayurvedic herbs. These herbs have a long history of use in Ayurvedic medicine to help balance glucose control, these include Bitter Melon, Fenugreek, Amla fruit and Turmeric.
