As you obviously know because you are a diabetic (hopefully), type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease and generally you can develop another autoimmune disease (mine is thyroid), but lately I have been doing some things to keep me healthier and possibly stop the risk of a third autoimmune disease. Yes, you can possibly get another autoimmune disease because being a diabetic makes your immune system compromised, I also want other diabetics to be healthy so here are 4 ways to strengthen your immune system:
- Yoga. This is a good exercise for keeping yourself fit while it being relaxing. Before going to yoga class my blood sugar was in the 200s and by an hour it had brought me down 70 points!
- Probiotics. I use the Phillips colon health, this helps filter the bad bacteria and put in the good bacteria, 80% of your immune system is located in the digestive system.
- Vitamins. I use Nature Made Vita Melts for Vitamin D3 and Flintstones Complete which is multivitamin. The vitamins are great when it comes to boosting your immune system.
- Water. Along with helping remove toxins from your body, it also helps your insulin travel through better and we all need that!
I hope these tips help you! Bye!
