Can You Reverse Diabetes?

Can you change your diabetes fate? It's key to understand that type 2 diabetes is a progressive illness often preceded by years of elevated blood glucose (also known as blood sugar) levels high enough to be diagnosed as prediabetes. When most people with type 2 diabetes are finally diagnosed, experts believe they've been on this path for five to 10 years and have lost more than half of their natural insulin-making capability in the beta cells of their pancreas. While you cannot undo your lifestyle habits of the last decade or more, you can take steps to put your diabetes in remission. Don't despair and don't give up. Research shows that losing weight and keeping it off can help delay the onset of prediabetes, delay progression of prediabetes to type 2 diabetes, or slow the progression of type 2. The keys to diabetes prevention and preventing diabetes complications include: Eat healthfully, exercise often, seek out knowledge and support, and create an environment that fosters healthful living. Losing even just a few pounds early on when glucose begins to rise can dramatically improve your blood sugar levels, cholesterol levels, triglycerides, blood pressure, and more.

    ATORVASTATIN CAUSING TYPE 2 DIABETES?

    Hi, In November 2011 I had a heart attack despite never having had raised cholesterol. I now take a myriad of drugs that the hospital gave me one of which is ATORVASTATIN. I am now told that I am border line type 2 diabetic and that I should alter my lifestyle! I am normally a very fit, slim, recently retired 62 year old lady. I do not take sugar in beverages (use a leaf extract sweetener) I hardly ever eat biscuits or sweets as I prefer savoury flavours and I am busy most of the time (a little less now that I've been diagnosed with Neuropathic pain (ouch). People are astounded when I tell them that my blood tests are showing borderline diabetes and I am wondering how many other people have been given this borderline diagnosis since taking ATORVASTATIN. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you

    HI THERE JOYCE ....I AM SORRY TO HEAR OF YOUR DIFFICULTIES AND STRONGLY BELIEVE THAT YOUR STATINS ARE CAUSING YOUR DIABETIC STATE AND WOULD SUGGEST YOU STOP THE STATINS IMMEDIATELY,
    It is well known that statins can cause the diabetic state and I am not surprised that people are astounded at your blood tests.
    Why not come off ALL statins for a few weeks then get a repeat blood test done and see if there is an improvement... I believe you will find that there will be - particularly if you take Co Enzyme Q 10 which can help reverse the problems that so many others encounter with taking any form of STATIN drugs.

    Hi Joyce Sorry to hear that your test show that you are bordering diabetice type 2 when you're so conscious of your sugar and fitness levels. Not sure if Atorvastatin caused this though! Regarding your Neuropathic Pain, I am sure I read in an article in the Daily Express that some people suffered from this as a result of taking Atorvastatin - suggest you Google "Daily Express - Statin" to read the article yourself. I was on Atorvastatin after leaving hospital when I had a minor heart attack. After a few months I got severe pains in my legs, arm and neck muscles. I stopped it but still have pains but nowhere near as severe. I am very concerned about Statins in general and have decided not to take them in future. Let us know how you get on!
