Diabetes affects people whose bodies cannot respond or produce insulin. The hormone absorbs blood sugar for conversion into energy. An increase in sugar levels can cause serious harm to health.
Biologists talked about the unexpected benefits of pumpkin seeds. The polysaccharides contained in them have demonstrated a sugar-regulating effect. High in protein and fat, seeds can be used by diabetics to combat high blood sugar after a meal. Eating 60 grams of pumpkin seeds lowers sugar levels by up to 35 percent.
Diabetes is also less common among people who include magnesium-rich foods in their diets. It is found in whole grains, nuts and green leafy vegetables.
Scientists have previously stated that blood levels of the protein follistatin can predict whether a person will develop type 2 diabetes 19 years before the onset of the disease.
