Diabetes in patients is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, the highest rates of macro- and microvascular complications, including myocardial infarction, major lower extremity amputations, end stage renal disease, and visual impairment.
Moreover, diabetics are at an increased risk of medication-related complications, particularly hypoglycemia.
When it comes to diabetes, a healthy diet can not only lower your blood sugar but can also reverse your diagnosis all together.
I know from my own experience of coaching for years clients who change their diet and lifestyle, by eating a plant-based diet and exercise, are effective tools for type 2 diabetes prevention and management.
Plant-based diets are eating patterns that emphasize legumes, whole grains, vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds and discourage most or all animal products.
My clients come off medication after the 20-week protocol, which is a personalized whole-food plant-based diet plan.
The answer is YES!!!! A plant-based diet for the prevention and treatment of type 2 diabetes!
Food is good medicine.
