Diabetes doesn't have to ruin your health! Make sure you get enough of this special mineral for protection

by , 07 November 2014

When you're living with type 2 diabetes, there's a constant battle to keep your health in check.

You're literally a ticking time bomb if you don't! But it's not always easy.

Because of your disease, your health takes a dive and it's a fight to keep bringing it back to an acceptable state.

One of the reasons is the effect your diabetes has on an essential mineral in your body.

We're talking about zinc!

When you blood sugar increases, your body excretes zinc through your kidneys. And this happens whether you have enough to keep normal functions taking place or not.

That's why, if you're already deficient - like many people are - your body takes a real knock.

Keep reading to find out why zinc's so important to a diabetic's health and how you can keep your levels stable.

Treat diabetes with Common Cinnamon?
Someday soon the threat of diabetes type II could be wiped out for millions of people. Because you could overcome and prevent it, using nothing more costly than table cinnamon.
I’m not talking about some exotic variety, but the stuff that’s already in your cupboard!
Up until recently, type II diabetics thought they had no choice but to pay through the nose for prescription drugs. Side effects from these drugs include extreme weakness, muscle pain, trouble breathing and even heart arrhythmia.
But it doesn’t have to be this way…

Zinc helps keep your blood sugar under control

ScienceDaily.com refers to zinc as the security guard in your body when your blood sugar levels get too high.
Normally, when your blood sugar levels spike, your body releases insulin to bring it back to normal. But as a diabetic, your insulin doesn’t work as well as it should and you have less insulin-producing cells. And one of the reasons for this is because of a protein called amylin, which stops your body making insulin-producing cells.
You see, it’s zinc that keeps the protein amylin under control. So if there’s not enough zinc in your body to reign it in, this protein wrecks havoc!
So, as a diabetic, being deficient is a huge disaster. And because your blood sugar levels soar, it perpetuates the problem.
This because having high blood sugar levels also causes zinc deficiency. So the worse your zinc situation and the less control you have over your blood sugar, the lower your zinc levels get.
This means, over time, you have less and less control over your blood sugar and, even if you put extra effort into controlling it, your constantly high blood sugar will ruin your health.
So how can you stop this from happening?
You eat enough zinc-rich foods of course!
