If you are a Type 2 Diabetic and take the drug Metformin then you have a nutrient deficiency of the following nutrients: Vitamin B12, Folic Acid and CoEnzyme Q10. Some of the potential health problems that arise from these specific deficiencies are cardiovascular disease, weakened immune system, tiredness, weakness, etc..


The good news is that Type 2 Diabetes is 100% reversible and preventable. It does require that you exercise on a regular basis and reduce your processed carbohydrate consumption. When the body consumes carbohydrates it breaks down into glucose molecules, as far as the body is concerned there is no difference between a glass of orange juice, a candy bar and a slice of bread. Be aware as you start to make improvements to your diet. The last thing you want to do is to start your day with a bowl of oatmeal and a glass of orange juice-way too many processed carbohydrates for one meal especially for a Type 2 Diabetic. If you continue to eat this way you will be heading towards Type 1 soon enough. A better breakfast, for a Type 2 Diabetic, would be two eggs cooked in coconut oil and a cup of berries (blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries). This will give much less of an insulin spike and provide more nutrients to your body.
