Can Those With Diabetes Do This Diet
The HCG diet has proven to help many people shed excess weight and live healthier, happier lives overall. The diet program has also proven to be extremely beneficial to individuals with certain pre-existing health conditions and problems when monitored by their Doctor. It turns out that the program is even helpful to people with diabetes who are looking for a way to lose weight and still manage their health.
Is It Right For You?
What type of diabetes you have, and the extent of the problem, determines whether the HCG diet program will be good for you. There are two different types of diabetes: Type 1 diabetes and Type 2 diabetes. While both types can benefit from the program, people with Type 2 diabetes will benefit greater than those with Type 1.
If you are pre-diabetic, you will absolutely benefit from the HCG diet program as well. In addition to shedding excess weight which is a huge contributing factor in Type 2 diabetes, you will also be eating much healthier foods. Part of the diet plan involves restricting your carbohydrates and eliminating sugar altogether. By losing weight and eating better, you will lower the blood sugar in your body and prevent you from developing long term health problems.
Type 2 Diabetes
People with Type 2 diabetes will have bigger benefits from the HCG diet program because they are not insulin-dependent. This is the most common form of diabetes and excessive, abnormal fat is often a big contributing factor. Because of this, most people with Type 2 diabetes are encouraged to embark on a weight loss management program anyway as a way to help get the problem under control. After discussing the plan with a physician, you can start the HCG diet which will see the extra kilos begin to drop off immediately. This results in better blood pressure levels, improved blood sugar in the body and less strain on the heart. You will begin to see these positive results in a matter of days, with the stabilization of glucose in the body dropping to normal levels within weeks. Those with Type 2 Diabetes can safely use the drops and injections and can follow the protocol as normal.
Type 1 Diabetes
If you are a type 1 Diabetic you can use both the HCG drops or Injections if given the go-ahead by your Dr. We do offer a modified plan for those with type 1 in Phase 1 (detox) to ensure your sugar levels stay stable.
Whether you are pre-diabetic, have Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes, you will benefit from the HCG diet program. The combination of weight loss and healthy eating habits will help to improve your health dramatically. Just as with any diet or fitness program, be sure to consult your physician first. If you are taking any medication, be sure to discuss how it will affect your diet and whether or not you can reduce the amount once you start to see the positive effects of the diet.
