5. Get Enough Sleep

The importance of adequate, good quality sleep is often under-estimated.

In the context of diabetes, even one night of inadequate sleep causes insulin resistance in healthy people through various metabolic pathways. (12) Think of what that means for someone with diabetes.

Essential oils, white noise, herbal teas, and warm baths are simple and effective ways to improve sleep.

Regular exercise helps sleep quality as well.

6. Control Stress

The chemistry of chronic stress throws off hormone balance, including insulin. Stress hormones stimulate an immune system response in the form of inflammatory cytokines.

Inflammation is a contributing factor to diabesity. Further, overeating and poor eating choices (“comfort food”) are common reactions to stress, exacerbating the problem.

There are healthy means to alleviate and manage stress (yoga, exercise, meditation, social interaction, acupressure, music, engaging in activities you enjoy, essential oils, etc.)—find some that work for you and keep the junk food out of your home.
