How quickly can I control my diabetes with diet and exercise?

As a feature of CNNhealth.com, our team of expert doctors will answer readers' questions. Here's a question for Dr. Gupta.

From Anthony, Burnsville, Minnesota

“I am a type 2 diabetic. If I eat right and exercise regularly, how long will it take to get my diabetic problems under control?”

Answer

Anthony, the last part of that question, “getting my diabetic problems under control” is different from saying curing or fixing my diabetes. Being realistic in terms of what you can achieve is very important.

With diabetes, your pancreas isn’t working. It is not producing enough insulin, or, because of your weight, the insulin simply isn’t working well. The blood sugars start to rise in diabetes. That can be a real problem.

There are a lot of studies looking at people who are diabetic, obese and on medications trying to figure out if they start to make some simple lifestyle changes, how long would it take for them to be able to get off the insulin. One study showed that people who ate a high-fiber, low-fat diet including unsaturated fats, and started exercising for 45 minutes a day, were actually able to go into remission in about three weeks. Remission meaning, clearly, they did not need the insulin for a period of time. Diabetes still wasn’t cured – if they stopped those important lifestyle changes, the insulin need would return again. You have to make lifestyle changes and stick with them to get yourself under control with diabetes, so eat right and exercise.

    Официальные зеркала Гидры предствлены снизу после статьи
    Гидра – популярная торговая платформа на просторах черного Интернета. Она была создана в конце 2015 года, и сравнительно быстро стала самой популярной площадкой, на которой можно купить практически все запрещенные товары.
    В первое время после запуска Гидры было сложно поверить, что наркотики, оружие и много чего запретного можно купить безнаказанно и анонимно.
    Люди не особо доверяли, но очень мало времени понадобилось для того, чтобы площадка завоевала абсолютное доверие.
    За все время существования не было ни единого инцидента, чтобы личность покупателя была раскрытой. Гидра пользуется огромной популярностью в России, а также в странах постсоветского пространства.

    Безопасный вход на сайт
    Основная задача, которая была поставлена перед разработчиками сайта – сделать покупки защищенными и анонимными, чтобы личность покупателя оставалась в безопасности. Способы входа на Гидра онион, которые сохраняют анонимность:

    Браузер Tor.
    Веб-зеркало.

    Вход на Hydra через браузер Tor
    Первым делом необходимо с официального сайта скачать браузер Tor. Что это такое? Это технология, которая дает возможность в сети скрыть личность пользователя. Суть в том, что все данные пропускаются через несколько компьютеров, в результате такого процесса АЙ-пи адрес меняется, и канал передачи информации становиться полностью защищенным. Когда это маршрутизатор только появился, то пользоваться им могли только в целях передачи военной информации, но очень быстро браузер стал общедоступным. Рассмотрим, как действовать дальше с ПК:

    Скачайте браузер.
    Установите его и нажмите «Финиш».
    При первом использовании нажмите на кнопку «Connect»
    Браузер готов к использованию.

    Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you're working with?

    I'm looking to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a hard
    time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something
    unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!
