Also known as adult-onset diabetes, type 2 diabetes can often be managed by carefully monitoring your diet. According to research or other evidence, the following self-care steps may be helpful. 
  • Keep an eye on the GI

    Follow a low-glycemic-index diet by avoiding sweet snacks and processed foods, and emphasizing healthy carbohydrates from whole grains, beans, vegetables, and whole fruit, to help keep blood sugar levels stable.

  • Fight back with fiber   

    In addition to eating plenty of high-fiber fruits and vegetables, consider using a fiber supplement such as glucomannan or psyllium with meals.

  • Energize insulin function with weight loss and exercise

    Lower your blood sugar and improve insulin function with weight loss and regular exercise.

  • Check out chromium

    Improve glucose tolerance by taking 200 to 1,000 mcg of this essential trace mineral every day.

  • Improve and protect with ALA

    Take 600 to 1,200 mg a day of an alpha lipoic acid supplement to improve insulin sensitivity and help protect against diabetic complications such as nerve damage.

  • Try a topical ointment

    An ointment containing 0.025 to 0.075% capsaicin four times a day might help control nerve pain.

  • Aim for a healthy weight

    Lose excess weight with a program of healthy eating, regular exercise, and group support to maintain healthy insulin sensitivity and prevent type 2 diabetes.

  • Get moving

    Use regular aerobic and/or strength exercise to maintain healthy insulin sensitivity and prevent type 2 diabetes.

  • Keep an eye on the GI

    Choose carbohydrate foods with a low glycemic index, such as whole grains, beans (legumes), and other high-fiber, unprocessed foods, to stabilize blood sugar and reduce diabetes risk.

  • Go vegetarian or vegan

    Vegetarians have been shown to have a low risk of type 2 diabetes.

  • Add some olive oil

    Extra virgin olive oil is a good source of monounsaturated fat. Increasing monounsaturated fats relative to other dietary fats has been shown to improve glucose tolerance.
