Diabetes and Body PH Levels

PH-Scale 360

Diabetes has a wide range of far reaching effects on your life. Not only do you have to change your diet to accommodate your condition, but there is a tendency for you to lose feeling in your feet and the constant need to keep an eye on your blood sugar levels. In more severe cases, there is the need for frequent insulin injections to help control the blood sugar levels. However, there is hope for decreasing the effects of diabetes on your lifestyle through the control of your body's PH levels.

It has been found that an increased average acidity in the body has a detrimental effect on your overall health. A high PH level puts the pancreas, liver and other organs at risk. When you consider that the pancreas is the organ which produces the insulin which diabetics lack, a highly acidic PH level could indeed increase the need for insulin injections and the other side effects of diabetes.

 

Something that is recommended for diabetics is a low PH diet. The concept is to ensure that your body's PH decreases and so your body becomes a far better environment for your various organs to function. One item that could be added to your diet to help lower your body's PH level is sodium bicarbonate.

 

Sodium bicarbonate injections have already been used in the treatment of the potentially life threatening condition metabolic acidosis. Metabolic acidosis is one of the results of uncontrolled diabetes, renal disease and circulatory insufficiency.

 

Another option is a supplement which contains the necessary ingredients to lower and stabilise your body PH. This could be the best option since supplements of this variety will most likely contain vitamins, minerals and antioxidants which your body needs to function at its optimum efficiency.

 

These options are not just to be recommended in the treatment of diabetes, but could also be used to promote general health and wellbeing for the average person. There is very little harm in taking a PH stabiliser and multivitamin on a daily basis as a preventative measure if your family history shows an inclination towards conditions such as diabetes and renal disease.
