Diabetes does not happen suddenly in most cases, but is instead a result of many years of blood sugar disturbances. Recent studies have found that coconut oil has a surprising effect on a person's metabolism and blood sugar control. Coconut oil reduces insulin resistance and improves insulin efficiency in the body, particularly in muscle cells. This, in turn, helps to keep blood sugars low, preventing both diabetes and the whole body damage that it can cause. People who are at risk of diabetes or other metabolic diseases should consider making this fat part of their daily diet.
