Adult onset diabetes is a complicated condition. It’s the result of poor dietary and lifestyle habits. These bad habits trigger frequent blood sugar spikes in your system.

This cycle ultimately results in diabetes. But, by giving your body the tools it needs to manage blood sugar and insulin you can break this cycle.

Let’s take a closer look at what this food does to the body.
