(NaturalNews) Diabetes is a disease in which the body is either unable to produce enough insulin or is unable to process the insulin that is produced. This causes increased levels of glucose in the body, putting additional strain on the body's organs. The typical treatment for diabetes is for a physician to prescribe various medications in order to control the disease. The purpose of these medications is often twofold: to add insulin to the body in order to better manage the glucose and to counteract any issues that result in strain to the organs.

Other means of coping with diabetes

These medications are not without side effects of their own, however. In some cases, these side effects are severe enough to impact the person's quality of life, and more medication is often prescribed. There is another, more natural, way that some people are turning to in an effort to address their diabetes. While some people use these more natural means of controlling their diabetes in conjunction with the medications prescribed by their doctors, others, particularly those with pre-diabetes, use them exclusively.

Easy changes to make at home

Some of the easiest ways to naturally control diabetes are those that can be completed at home, by the person who has been diagnosed. Lifestyle changes, such as increasing the level of exercise and eating a more healthy diet, top the list. Because being overweight and consuming a diet that is high in saturated fats are both risk factors that increase a person's chances of contracting diabetes, changing these factors can have a significant and positive effect.

Starting small is the best way for a person to implement these changes and help ensure that they become lifelong habits. Taking a walk each day and adding more fresh fruits and vegetables to one's plate are great ways to get started. Reaching for a piece of fresh fruit instead of a sugary snack and walking instead of taking the elevator are just a few of the ways that people can better their health each day.

Taking it further

Lifestyle changes are a great way to get started, but those people who are interested in taking it further should look into supplements.

  • Chromium

This element is needed by the body to make the factor that enables it to tolerate glucose. Studies have shown that additional chromium could help improve the body's ability to make this glucose-tolerant factor.

  • Magnesium

Though researchers cannot quite pinpoint the relationship between this essential nutrient and diabetes, it has been shown that a deficit in magnesium can lead to less control of the blood sugar levels in those people who have type II diabetes.

For those people who are under a doctor's treatment, consulting with their physician before starting any type of supplementation of their diet in an effort to control their diabetes is a wise idea.
