Going VEGAN Prevent Type 2 Diabetes: There is a huge risk in people who are overweight to get diabetes. But, those who are overweight and start going VEGAN can take control of the disease and being attacked by it. Following a plant-based diet can boost insulin sensitivity in overweight people. Researchers found that overweight people who switched to a vegan diet for 16 weeks showed improvements in insulin sensitivity.
Beta cells reside in the pancreas and produce and release insulin. The vegan diet also led to improvements in blood sugar levels, both during fasting and during meals. Lead study author Dr. Hana Kahleova, of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine in Washington, D.C., says that the findings have “important implications for diabetes prevention.”
Type 2 diabetes arises when the body is no longer able to respond to insulin effectively — which is a condition known as insulin resistance — or the pancreatic beta cells do not produce enough insulin. Insulin is the hormone that regulates blood sugar levels. As a result of this, blood sugar levels can become too high. This can lead to serious complications, including cardiovascular disease, kidney disease, diabetic eye disease, and nerve damage.
Diabetes Mellitus Type 2 is by far the most common type to affect the general Indian population Common symptoms include increased thirst, frequent urination, and unexplained weight loss. Most people can live a relatively normal lifestyle keeping in mind medication, dietary considerations and moderate exercise. Type 1 primarily affects children and young adults. And since children are unaware of the signs and symptoms of the disease, they are more likely to suffer from it undiagnosed.
The researchers note some important limitations to their study. For example, they point out that the study subjects were “generally health-conscious individuals” who were willing to make significant dietary changes. “In this regard, they may not be representative of the general population,” say the authors, “but may be representative of a clinical population seeking help for weight problems.” Still, the results certainly warrant further investigation.
