2. Cut sugar
Diabetes is caused by either a reduction in the amount of insulin your body produces or by a change in the body’s sensitivity to that insulin. The role of insulin is to instruct the body to absorb blood from the sugar and into the cells where it can then be used for energy and to power our regular daily actions.
One of the biggest causes of diabetes then is consuming too much sugar, which causes frequent production of insulin and eventually leads to insensitivity or reduced production. The problem is that many of us eat very sugar-heavy diets, which include things like candies, sugary drinks, and more. Thus we could all stand to eat a lot less sugar!
