Aloe Vera and my Diabetes type 2

My journey with diabetes even though it’s only been a few months I’ve had to change my life in different ways from now stabbing my fingers twice a day to get my blood sugars, taking medication daily and most of all throwing everything I know about food out the window.

After the initial shock and a few melt downs i did what I always do when I need to change parts of my life, RESEARCH!

Already living with Muscular Dystrophy a Progressive muscle wasting disorder I’m use to having to changing thing’s in my life but this seemed very different, I’m not really one for putting Medication in my body unless it’s a must do situation which this did require. I’m a true believe in everything natural hence my love for everything Aloe Vera.I found an amazing group on Facebook called Type 2 Diabetes Support UK the advice and support Is great, so reading how people have been able to reverse their type 2, my research went into over drive, yes I can go a little Extreme my best friend became Google!!

So when i started reading about how studies have shown taking Aloe Vera may help improve HbA1c and slightly lowered fasting plasma glucose levels in type 2 diabetes, I couldn’t stop reading this was my area of expertise already having a house full of everything Aloe Vera from toothgel, face cremes, Scrubs, drinking Gel even a Multi purpose cleaning agent. Granted I’d slacked on taking my Aloe Vera Gel shot daily so my first thought was pass me a shot please!

We all know the Aloe Vera plant has been used as a medical plant for centuries dating back as far as the Egyptian times.

According to the various sets of data, taking aloe vera as an oral supplement can significantly reduce the level of glucose in the blood, as well as reducing HbA1c, or glycated hemoglobin, which indicates the average blood glucose level over the previous three months. Regularly taking aloe vera stimulates the secretion of insulin, which is particularly useful for people suffering from diabetes. Patients with blood sugar levels of 200mg/dl benefitted the most from the effects of aloe vera, the researchers found. 

Now I don’t if you remember me saying at the beginning this was my area of expertise all things Aloe Vera so I don’t take just any old Aloe Vera Drinking Gel mine has nothing but goodness and natural ingredients plus it’s 99.9 % pure Aloe Vera and only the yummy goodness of the inner leaf is used (ingredients: Stabilized Aloe vera gel [Aloe vera gel (99,7%), vitamin C (ascorbic acid), antioxidant (ascorbic acid), acidity regulator (citric acid)], as most other Aloe Vera drinks on the market shelves use the whole Aloe leaf but fail to mention that the outer leaf is a type of latex that our bodies struggle to digest.

Now don’t get me wrong I’m not about to throw my medication down the toilet or the changes I’ve made in what I’m eating but doing all of the above plus my shot of Aloe Vera Drinking Gel has helped I was diagnosed 8 weeks ago, I had my 6 week check up with the diabetic nurse, she said it’s all positive I was on the right path my blood sugars where good and doing well she lowed one of my tablets to half a day and said that if I keep going the way I’m going then when she see me in 6 months I could possibly come off all medication altogether! Music to my ears.
