Well, aside from diet (including salt restrictions) and exercise, there are some natural products that are very beneficial for Blood Pressure. The most popular ones are Fish Oil, Hawthorn Berries, L-Arginine, Resveratrol (which is in Red Wine), C12 Peptides (from milk protein casein), Bonito Peptides, and Garlic.

A pre-diabetes diet is important for anyone with elevated glucose because modifying your diet and exercising regularly can prevent or delay Type 2 diabetes by almost 60 percent, according to the American Diabetes Association.

Planning meals for pre-diabetes means more than just watching starches and sugars. One of the simplest ways to follow a pre-diabetes diet is called the plate method. With this eating plan, you fill the largest part of your plate with mostly nonstarchy vegetables. About half the plate should include any of the following:
tomatoes, carrots, green beans, peppers, lettuce, spinach, carrots, lettuce, greens, cabbage, bok choy, broccoli, cauliflower, tomatoes, salsa, onion, cucumber, beets, turnips, okra or mushrooms.

The rest of the plate should include about 25 percent whole grains and 25 percent lean protein. You can also add an 8-ounce glass of milk and a small piece of fruit.

Pre-diabetes can affect people without them knowing because symptoms develop so gradually and aren't always recognized; some people have none. Symptoms of pre-diabetes can include: a frequent desire to urinate, blurred vision or a feeling of being tired most of the time for no apparent reason. Your doctor can test you for pre-diabetes with a simple test called a fasting plasma glucose, or FPG, test, or the oral glucose tolerance test, or OGTT.

A healthy bodybuilding routine can be a powerful aide in the battle against diabetes. Bodybuilding requires constant blood sugar control and the best way to accomplish that is by using the correct diet. I like to use a 40% carb, 40% protein, 20% good fats diet and also it is key that instead of infrequent large meals, the diet is made up of smaller more frequent meals.

when it comes to diabetes. I think the best thing to do is take precautions so that you can lead an active lifestyle. If you stay inactive your condition will probably get worst, thanks for encouraging treatment.

diabetes doesnt have to cramp your lifestyle you can still eat and do the things you enjoy just do a little planning and give a little thought first

I come from a family with a long history of obesity that results in diabetes, heart problems, strokes, and numerous other maladies. Over the past year, my primary care manager (PCM) has been on me to get my cholesterol down. Last year at this time, my total was 281. I started eating for my blood type in the fall and got it down to 244. In March I really got serious and started an exercise program of walking and using the Wii Fit that has yoga, strenght training, aerobics, and balance games. In April, I had my blood checked again. My numbers are way down--total is 206. In addition, my liver function is better,too. I'm off my blood pressure medication and am substituting natural kelp for synthroid. I've only lost 10lbs and one size, but the health benefits, which was my primary goal anyway, have far exceeded my expectations. My PCM said he had never seen the LDL number drop almost 40 points in such a short period without medication. I attribute my success to eating more fiber through oatmeal, fruits and vegetables and more Omega 3 proteins such as sardines and other fish, as well, as being diligent with my exercise program.
