How to Live with Adult Onset Diabetes

how to live with adult onset diabetes

We live in a time of the 8-5 career, commutes, rush hour traffic, and an absolute lack of free time. Unfortunately, this also means that most of us have become dependent on the quick and easy ‘Fast Food’ dinner, and the ‘no time, gym next week’ excuse. As a result, adult onset diabetes, or Type 2 Diabetes, have become a near pandemic. But because it develops due to lifestyle habits, for people who have to live with adult onset diabetes, it’s often a very difficult adjustment to make.

According to the International Diabetes Federation, over 552 million people could have diabetes by 2030. On top of that, at least 1 in every 10 adults will develop Type 2 Diabetes. They even predict that the numbers in Africa will jump by 90%! As a rather morbid cherry on the off-limits cake, diabetes deaths are expected to double in the next 10 years.

With figures like these, you’d think that discovering a cure would have become a priority. But, in reality, there is no cure for Diabetes Type 1. (Diabetes Type 1 means insulin dependent). However, by making significant lifestyle changes, Diabetes Type 2 may go into remission. In fact, even little daily things you do can make a big difference in how diabetes affect your life.

It’s important to understand what can and what can’t help to improve your life. For example, most supplements don’t only NOT cure diabetes, but they may react negatively with any medication you’re currently taking. Natural exercises, such as abdominal breathing, muscle relaxation, etc, can relieve stress. Less stress can lower your blood sugar levels, and help you manage your diabetes.

What lifestyle changes can help manage Type 2 Diabetes?

  • Manage your blood sugar levels: You can do this by monitoring your glucose levels closely.
  • Take your prescribed medicine: Your doctor will have prescribed medicine that can help.
  • Balance your food intake: Planning your meals and eating healthy snacks will help keep your blood sugar levels regulated.
  • Exercise: It will help keep you fit, normalize your blood sugar levels, and burns calories.
  • Manage your stress: Breathing exercises and muscle relaxation can regulate your glucose levels.
  • Develop good sleeping habits: Sleep is very important to help your body function as well as possible.

Other, more advanced technological advances have been looked into as possible treatment for diabetes. Weight loss surgery is one of these – however, if the weight is regained, the diabetes may return as well. Stem cell research has also been considered an option, and so has islet cell transplants. However, both are very expensive procedures, and neither are considered cures at all. The cost-benefit trade off are just not worth it for most people.

Is Ozone Therapy an option for people who live with Adult Onset Diabetes, or Diabetes in General?

Yes. Now, you wouldn’t normally think of it as a treatment for diabetes, but according to Dr. Frank Shallenberger of the Nevada Centre of Alternative and Anti-Aging Medicine; “…ozone (a less stable, more reactive form of oxygen) can produce remarkable improvements in both the major and secondary symptoms of adult- onset diabetes.”

The secret, according to Dr. Shallenberger, is blood circulation. With several test cases of patients who had experienced success, it’s hard to argue. Here is one of the testimonials of a 51 year old patient:

Virginia has been diabetic for five years and was taking Glucotrol. When she originally came to the doctor, it was for a possible breast cancer treatment. She did daily ozone treatments, and the breast cancer responded to the treatment by starting to dissolve. But what was interesting, and surprising, about her treatment was that her sugar levels began dropping too low. As a result, Virginia was starting to suffer from hypoglycaemia – the combination of her medication and ozone therapy was controlling her blood sugar levels too well!

Dr. Shallenberger reduced her medication dosage, and soon enough, eliminated the use of the drug completely. “Practically speaking, Virginia didn’t have diabetes any longer,” notes Dr. Shallenberger.

This is not the only case where Ozone Therapy has made an impact for people living with Diabetes. In fact, studies on Ozone Therapy and Diabetes have even become more common, and all show positive results. In fact, it’s been stated that Ozone Therapy is a very good complimentary therapy to any medication for either type of diabetes.
