Many people dealing with diabetes have to rely on insulin injections to boost insulin production and stabilise their blood sugar level. This is touted as a reliable mechanism to manage the condition. It helps regulate the movement of sugar into the liver, muscles and fat cells. However, injecting insulin into the body may also cast the risk of weight gain and the loss of control of blood sugar levels. This can be a tricky situation for diabetics who want to combat diabetes without developing any further risk of other health problems. For such people, the findings of a new study may bring some relief that clams to have found out a better way of managing diabetes.
The study that was published in the journal Diabetes Care suggests that changing eating pattern could help manage diabetes better than insulin injections. It also stated that insulin injections could also trigger a vicious cycle of higher insulin doses, and increase the risk of developing cardiovascular disease, apart from weight loss. The researchers suggest eating a starch-rich breakfast and light dinner that could work as a healthier alternative to insulin injection treatment.
