Facts about Diabetes

Diabetes and obesity are underlying causes of chronic disease and cause pain for millions. According to the CDC 84MM people (1 in 3 adults) have Pre-diabetes, 30MM have Type 2 Diabetes and costs the US >$526Bn/ year. The good news is that EVERYONE has the ability to take control of their health and make the right nutrition choices!

November is National Diabetes month, a chance for all of us to reflect on how we can use personalized nutrition and other wellness measures to improve our overall quality of life and reduce our risk of developing diabetes.

Risk Factors for Pre-Diabetes and Diabetes:

  • You’re overweight

  • 45 years or older

  • Have a parent or sibling with type 2 diabetes

  • Physically active less than 3 times a week

  • Female who had gestational diabetes while pregnant

  • Some minority populations are also at higher risk

Stages of Diabetes

Pre
Pre Diabetes

Blood glucose levels are higher than normal, but not high enough for a diabetes diagnosis.

Learn More
Pre Diabetes

A condition where your blood glucose levels are higher than normal but not high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. Millions of Americans currently have this condition, with 84% being unaware they are pre-diabetic. While this can be a serious condition with increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and stroke, preventative measures such as the right nutrition and exercise can help manage and improve your A1c score (blood glucose levels), as well as help prevent a full type 2 diagnosis.

Type
Type 2 Diabetes

Your body does not make or use insulin efficiently and medical treatment is necessary.

Learn More
Type 2 Diabetes

A condition where your body develops insulin resistance or the pancreas is unable to make enough insulin to manage how glucose is used in your body. Millions of Americans are at high risk of developing this serious condition. Signs of type 2 diabetes develop very slowly over time, and symptoms like fatigue, blurred vision, increased thirst and frequent urination could be indicators. Healthy diet and exercise programs, along with supplemental insulin, are used by physicians to help manage type 2 diabetes. Find out on the CDC website if you are at risk.

Type
Type 1 Diabetes

The least common type; your body makes little to no insulin, and supplemental insulin is needed.

Learn More
Type 1 Diabetes

The least common diabetes condition, once known as insulin-dependent or juvenile diabetes, type 1 means your pancreas makes little to no insulin to manage glucose in your body. Supplemental insulin is necessary for proper blood sugar regulation and health. Because type 1 diabetes is largely due to genetic conditions, there is currently no known prevention. However, physicians frequently use nutrition plans and exercise regimens along with insulin doses through shots or pumps to help manage blood sugar levels.

Diabetes, your gut microbiome and personalized nutrition

Diabetes - Personalized Nutrition

Personalized Nutrition

Recent research shows that there is no universally healthy diet, because we all react differently to individual foods - a superfood for one person may be kryptonite to another. Most of us have a ‘gut feeling’ that there are certain foods that give us a sugar rush and others which we can enjoy. People with diabetes have to pay special attention to these of course, but it is important to understand how your body uniquely processes and uses the foods you eat in order to feed it the right foods that are most beneficial.

Personalized

Diabetes - Gut Microbiome

Gut Microbiome

Your digestive system and gut microbiome affects how your body processes food into nutrients that the body needs, but can also create harmful substances and affects blood sugar response. Your gut microbiome consists of trillions of microorganisms like bacteria, viruses and bacteriophages, which are unique to you, so you need to feed your microbiome exactly what it needs for healthy digestion and blood sugar response.

Gut

Blood sugar response

In a recent clinical study, with >550 participants eating >30,000 meals Viome demonstrated that “limiting post-meal glycemic response is an important factor in reducing the risk of chronic metabolic diseases, and contributes to significant health benefits in people with elevated levels of blood sugar”. For example one individual had a high glycemic response to bread, and low glycemic response to bananas, and another had exactly the opposite reaction. The learning from this study is built into all of Viome’s precise recommendations.

How to Feed Your Body With the Most Beneficial Nutrition for You

How to Feed Your Body With the Most Beneficial Nutrition for You

There is no universal healthy diet, but nutrient-rich foods ARE essential to supporting your health. You need the right superfoods and Precision Supplements for you, using Viome’s personalized lists.

Diabetes

Healthy / Harmful

Harmful

Foods that are Harmful to Your Body

Several food types, when eaten to excess, can cause harm to your cells, mitochondria, and gut microbiome, especially if you are experiencing digestive issues or other health problems:

Sugary Food. Diets with high sugar content cause unhealthy bacteria to thrive inside the gut, causing weight gain and other health conditions.

Artificial Ingredients. Sweeteners like Saccharin or aspartame, reduce good bacteria in your gut and can lead to high levels of blood sugar.

Unhealthy fats. While fats like Omega 3, help the good gut bacteria, saturated fats can cause bad bacteria to thrive.

Healthy

Foods that are "Healthy" for Your Unique Body

So-called “healthy” foods may not be right for you. Greens and nuts are anti-inflammatory for some, but can cause harm to others, depending on the current state of your body and gut microbiome.

Superfoods - Highly beneficial “Superfoods” & “Enjoy” foods for you, which can stimulate production of healthy nutrients your body needs right now.

"Minimize" Foods - Foods which can be eaten in limited quantities in a pinch or if you really have a craving

"Avoid" Foods - which may result in toxins being produced, causing inflammation and other harmful effects.
