Phosphate diabetes is a condition where the body does not properly absorb phosphorus from the diet. This leads to low levels of calcium and magnesium in the blood. The causes of phosphate diabetes are unclear. However, some factors that contribute to this disease include genetics, poor nutrition, and certain medications.
The treatment involves controlling symptoms and preventing complications by doing the following-
- The first step to treating phosphate diabetes is to change your diet. This means cutting back on foods that contain phosphorous.
- Foods that contain phosphorous include meat, dairy, eggs, beans, nuts, seeds, grains, and whole fruits. Phosphorous is also present in many processed foods.
- To reduce your intake of phosphorous, try eating less red meat, avoiding fast-food restaurants, and limiting your consumption of cheese, breads, pasta, and other baked goods.
- Exercise helps to burn calories and increase insulin sensitivity. •Walking for 30 minutes per day, five days per week also helps. •Walking is a great exercise because it doesn't require any equipment and it can be done anywhere.
- Supplementing with vitamin D and magnesium may help to improve blood sugar levels.
- Vitamin D supplements should be taken at least twice daily. •Magnesium supplements should be taken once daily.
