There’s no shortage of health risks that come with type 2 diabetes.
From frequent urination and increased thirst… to obesity and heart disease.
When left unchecked, type 2 diabetes can put you in the crosshairs of some pretty serious conditions.
And now, researchers have discovered a NEW danger of type 2 diabetes… one that could severely impact your quality of life as you age.
Here’s everything you need to know about this new risk — and the simple, natural steps you can take NOW to ensure it doesn’t take control of your health.
Type 2 Diabetes Speeds Up Mental Decline?
According to a new study published in the journal eLife, typical brain aging is accelerated by 26% in folks diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.
Brain aging happens to everyone – but it typically occurs over a long stretch of time.
But this study is important as it directly connects the impact of type 2 diabetes on faster-than-normal brain deterioration.
You see, type 2 diabetes causes your body to become less sensitive to insulin, and the resulting insulin resistance can lead to chronic INFLAMMATION.
Chronic inflammation leads to oxidative stress, which can severely impact your brain health and put you at risk for serious brain diseases like dementia or Alzheimer’s.
The bottom line?
The more you can control type 2 diabetes, the better chance you will have of slowing your brain’s aging process.
There are plenty of drugs out there that promise to ‘fix’ type 2 diabetes – but they come with a laundry list of side effects (and a steep price tag).
But I have a better solution…
It takes time, hard work, and dedication…
But, it’s the surefire way to stop the dangers of type 2 diabetes from taking hold of your life.
Simple lifestyle changes like eating a healthy diet (free of refined sugars and carbs) and getting regular exercise are some of your body’s best defenses against type 2 diabetes.
In fact, new studies have concluded that these effective lifestyle ‘interventions’ can in many cases send type 2 diabetes into remission!
