Taking a proactive role in underserved communities to educate the community about natural and easy lifestyle changes has shown an incredible potential for turning around the diabetes epidemic.
More than 200 participants in the San Francisco Bay area that met criteria for the study … had family history and currently identified problems with obesity and also were in some of the poorer neighborhoods … were followed during a study that provided lifestyle counseling.
Measurements for blood sugar and tryglicerides were taken, as well as data on eating habits, activity levels, and other markers of healthy living.
Half of the participants received phone call counseling sessions for free at least once per month on simple and inexpensive changes that can be made to keep diabetes away and improve other health issues.
The scientists found that after 6 months, those who had received counseling had not only lost more fat but were eating more fresh vegetables and had blood sugar improvements.
No medication was dispensed, no experimental or invasive techniques were used… just simple voice-to-voice counseling providing reinforcement and education.
