New Data Analysis Identifies Simple Behaviors that Reverse Diabetes and Bring Blood Sugar Levels back Under Control

By: Get News

A new analysis of patients with diabetes has identified the most popular behaviors, foods and activities that reverse their condition, and return blood sugar levels back to the normal range without medication.

The data analysis involved 5,355 people who used the diabetes management app, Klinio, for a minimum of 14 days, and logged their blood sugar levels, meals and activities.

The analysis found it took an average 36 days for patients with prediabetes to bring their blood sugar levels under control and 52 days for patients with type 2 diabetes when they drank 7 glasses of water a day and took 7,500 daily steps. And the longer app users stuck with this behavior, the more their blood sugar levels stabilized, according to the data analysis.

Blood sugar levels that drop by at least 5 percent in the first 7 days of reporting and are below 7.8 mmol/L are typically classified as improving conditions.

Dr. Braden Barnett, Medical Advisor to Klinio, said the team at Klinio conducted the data analysis to quantify how simple lifestyle changes could lower blood sugar levels for people with diabetes.

“When you’re in the middle of a diabetes battle, it’s not always easy to see the end,” said Barnett. “But diabetes can be improved with simple health changes in a short period of time, and this data proves it. If you stick with a diabetes management plan, like in our study – Klinio-, the data shows blood sugar levels drop. And the longer you stick with the diabetes plan, the better results you see.”

Consumers can download the Klinio app for free with iOS or Android.

Direct Relationship Between Weight Loss and Tracking Blood Sugar

The data analysis also found a direct correlation between weight loss and tracking blood sugar levels. Patients with diabetes who had the discipline to track and control their blood sugar levels had a better than 1 in 2 chance (56 percent) of losing weight, compared to those who didn’t control their levels and had a 43 percent chance of weight loss. This finding was consistent among all users, regardless of how often or how long they used Klinio. 

Patients with prediabetes showed the largest benefit from tracking: 61 percent of them lost weight when they tracked their blood sugar levels. 

“It takes discipline to continually track blood sugar levels, but that was our biggest finding: that discipline overtime will lead to better health,” said Barnett. “If you make the effort with tracking, diabetics will see the results in a relatively short period of time.”

Diabetics Who Show Most Health Improvement

As part of their behavior analysis, Klinio took a specific look at diabetics who got the healthiest and brought their diabetes under control. Their analysts found the most popular foods by people who lowered their blood sugar levels were oats, various berries, olive oil, seeds, avocado and fresh vegetables and fruits.

“Our diet findings reinforce our conclusion around discipline. Diabetics who are disciplined enough to track their blood sugar levels also tend to eat healthier,” said Barnett.

One in 3 Americans have prediabetes, and one in 5 Americans will have full-on diabetes by 2025, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
