Is It Possible to Reverse Prediabetes?
Type 2 Diabetes & Prediabetes are at epidemic proportions…but there is hope!
Firstly, it’s important to know that one in eight adults worldwide now has diabetes (mostly Type 2 Diabetes). Secondly, another one in three has prediabetes. That means three cases of diabetes are diagnosed every minute! Moreover, the cost of this high blood sugar epidemic has reached $327 billion in 2017 and climbing.
In other words, type 2 diabetes and prediabetes are now at epidemic proportions. One of the key tasks for everyone in the health care field is to help people address prediabetes and prevent or reverse the path to Type 2 Diabetes. That is our mission at Holland Health Coaching.
The good news
In 2018, researchers in England published the Diabetes Remission Clinical Trial (DiRECT) results. Before this study, doctors and researchers considered Type 2 Diabetes a lifelong condition and they stood at the ready with medications and stern conversations.
The 49 doctor’s offices in England that participated in the DiRECT study have shown diabetes educators, like me, that the root cause of prediabetes and type 2 diabetes can be healed.
With the training and education, you’ll receive in the Solution StarterTM Program, we can stop the legacy of this damaging illness.
However, before you make commitments to habit change, it’s vital to understand where you are on the path to Type 2 Diabetes. The chart below can give you an idea of what can be done for diabetes prevention.
Each of the yellow stars in this image represent an opportunity for self-care.
When we make new choices at these places along the path, we have the best chance of creating dramatic, sustainable health gains.
What’s Different about this Program?
Science-based approach delivered with compassionate support
I developed the Solution StarterTM Prediabetes Program using my years as a Certified Diabetes Educator and training as a Certified Holistic Health Coach. As a result, the program is a balance of science and support which gives you the building blocks for making lasting change.
Proven methods for a sound foundation
The Diabetes Prevention Program, created in conjunction with the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), is the basis of what I teach in the Solution StarterTM Prediabetes Program online. Following their findings, there are three main objectives in the program that, when accomplished, have the power to change the direction of your path toward Type 2 Diabetes.
3 main objectives
- Drop 5% of your body’s weight using the holistic health tools offered in this program
- Exercise for 30 minutes 5 days each week, or 150 minutes, reducing sedentary living
- Reduce Stress + Improve Sleep
Holistic support that makes change happen
We all know that talking about change is easy. Making change happen, however, is much harder to do. My holistic health coaching gives you the proven strategies, empowering mindset and compassionate support that make change happen.
Bolstered by personal communication with me (your coach) and membership in our online community, you won’t be alone on your journey to better health. And that time together—even virtually—makes all the difference.
Will this Program Address Weight Loss?
Because body size is a determining factor with prediabetes – we’ll work to lose weight
The solution for prediabetes and type 2 diabetes includes developing new habits that will help you drop around 5% of your current weight. This isn’t about fitting into jeans or swimsuits. This is about reducing the fat that surrounds internal organs.
It’s true that there are many prediabetics with a lean body. Even though they look trim, there still may be too much fat collecting on their liver and pancreas. I’ll explain below why that’s a problem. While not every client I coach needs to drop weight for his or her health, a majority of people with prediabetes are overweight.
How does being over-weight affect prediabetes?
Twenty years ago, research began on the topic of the health risks of being overweight along with having unstable blood sugar. Researchers suggested that excess fat in the liver was making the body “resistant” to its own insulin. They also told us that excess fat in the pancreas also makes it more difficult to produce the right amount of insulin.
The epidemic of prediabetes then can be traced back to one specific commonality: a lifestyle of being overfed and becoming sedentary.
It has been proven that overfed people tend to have excess fat in their liver and pancreas. Being overfed is not a character flaw. It’s important to understand, there is an obstacle course of unhealthy food in society. The food itself is often manufactured with addictive ingredients!
What can be done?
In 2011, a pilot study illustrated that when overfed and sedentary people drop 5% of their body weight through mindful eating, more physical activity, and lowered stress, their liver-involved insulin resistance can be solved. Furthermore, after more than 8 weeks of continued body-fat reduction, the fat that surrounds the pancreas can also be reduced.
However, just knowing this proven science is not the same as having the skills to take action and follow-through. As a result, The Solution StarterTM Prediabetes Program is designed using holistic health coaching techniques to help you turn knowledge into life-changing habits.
Is The Solution StarterTM Program Right for You?
Do you or someone you love have high blood sugar, prediabetes or diabetes?
There are many reasons that people take the Solution StarterTM Prediabetes Program. Learning how food and lifestyle affect diabetes and prediabetes helps them manage their high blood sugar or support a loved one with those issues.
Instead of teaching my clients another quick-fix fad diet plan, or shaming them for past efforts gone wrong, this program has been designed to build them up and help create a Personalized and Sustainable solution. And instead of trying to take the place of their medical team, I help to work WITH their doctor to create robust health.
