JAKARTA, NETRALNEWS.COM - Recent research shows that consuming coconut oil can prevent and even treat type 2 diabetes.

Previously, we already know the fact that eating a balanced diet can help prevent and treat a number of diseases. Actually, a balanced diet can boost your immunity and also keep your mental health in good condition.

A balanced diet includes all the nutrients such as carbohydrates, fats, proteins, fiber, vitamins, minerals, and others. Even if one of these nutrients is lost, we can suffer from malnutrition. Now, other important nutrients that have a number of drug benefits, are omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which are found in foods such as coconut oil, fish, avocados, nuts, and others.

It turns out that coconut oil has proven to be very healthy and even doctors advise people to make it their routine meals. This was found in a recent study conducted by The George Institute of Global Health in Australia.

The study stated that coconut oil can prevent the development of type 2 diabetes in many people. After conducting various studies, it was concluded that because coconut oil contains omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, it can increase the body to produce enough insulin, thus preventing type 2 diabetes and also treating type 2 diabetes, as quoted from Boldsky.

As it is known, diabetes, also known as diabetes mellitus, is classified as a group of metabolic disorders in which the blood sugar/ glucose level of the affected person is higher than normal. There are 2 types of diabetes that can affect type-1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes.

In type 2 diabetes, the body of the affected person does not produce enough insulin or the body rejects the resulting insulin, thus creating a spike in blood sugar levels. Some of the most common type 2 diabetes symptoms are urination, starvation, fatigue, excessive weight loss or gain, slow healing wounds, nausea, and headaches, among others.
