The world health organisation states that the number of people with diabetes will more than double from 120 million today to 300 million in just one generation. Diabetes can trigger heart, brain, eye, and arterial problems and the life expectancy of an individual is therefore considerably below what it should be.
Mediterranean type diets have consistently shown in studies to improve insulin sensitivity and to ameliorate the adverse symptoms of metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes. It is a low- glycaemic-load diet, which means that its foods don’t spike the level of sugar in the blood after eating. This lessens the demand on the pancreas to secrete insulin, and it lowers the need to immediately transport glucose into the tissues.
Type 1 diabetes is an auto-immune condition, and therefore see under auto-immune conditions.
