Scientists representing Harvard University (USA) have come to the conclusion that with the help of human psychology it is possible to influence biological processes. So, experts with the help of a test were able to “deceive” diabetes.

Researchers conducted a study in which 30 people took part. Volunteers consumed beverages with supposedly low and high sugar content in the laboratory every three days. The participants who drank the “very sweet” liquid increased their blood sugar, while the other team did not. The drinks were the same – both groups received a liquid with about 15 g of sugar.
According to experts, this psychological deception is not able to cure type 2 diabetes. Scientists note that the test may help to identify in the future effective methods of therapy for people suffering from uncontrolled disease. It can develop as a result of increased blood sugar levels, which the body does not use for cell energy. As a result of this, various health complications can arise – from a deterioration in well-being to amputation of the legs.
According to experts, with weight loss, you can effectively fight diabetes. Being overweight leads to the accumulation of large amounts of fat in the liver and pancreas, and this provokes disease. Losing approximately 15 kg increases the chances of a long and healthy life. You can reduce weight by changing your lifestyle and diet. If you have any health problems, you should consult a doctor.
