Diabetes Mellitus is something that we all have heard at some point in our lives. Today, it has become a common household name. Our parents, friends, or relatives must have been diagnosed with it.
For me, I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus 6 years ago. Some of the days were challenging because I was also managing my rare disease, Isaac Syndrome. It wasn’t easy to fish out of water. I found myself suddenly addressing my issues. It was a tight spot as I had limited knowledge.

In this blog post, I am going to share my 5 simple tips that one might follow in their health journey to get a bigger impact.
I was diagnosed with a rare disease called Isaacs’ Syndrome. Isaacs’ is a neuromuscular health condition that stems from muscle hyperactivity. My lift post-diagnosis underwent a drastic change.

Glaucoma is an eye-related disease that damages the optic nerves. And Membranous Glomerulonephritis is a progressive kidney disease.

These natural ingredients proved to be my friends in stabilizing blood sugar levels. Embracing these time-tested solutions required patience and persistence. The results were worth the journey.

This was the game changer. A major turning point in my battle against diabetes was revamping my diet. Steering clear of sugar-loaded beverages and processed foods became important. I kept a check on my carbohydrate intake. Also, balancing protein intake and staying hydrated played crucial roles. I said no to fats, junk food, and eating beyond what was required.
3) Lifestyle Modifications for Optimal Wellness
Though it was challenging to stay consistent, it was definitely worth the effort. At times, I felt demotivated to keep repeating the same schedule every day. But I saw a miraculous transformation over a period of time. Now I feel that every bit of struggle was worth it.
