Diabetes, is slowly creeping into societies as one of the most common prevelent diseases. Once that was rare and believed to be just genetic, has now become a scare of every society. Why? Most believe, it is due to the less physical lifestyle we have adopted, and the fries burger diet. Like any other acquired disease, even diabetes can be prevented.
SIMPLE WAYS TO PREVENT DIABETES
Get physical: exercise is the most important controlling factor for diabetes. It not only helps you lose that uneccessary fat. But also helps lower glucose levels and increase insulin sensitivity - thus controlling your sugar levels. The more fat you have, the more insulin becomes insensitive to the tissues.Stay away from fries: skip all those fad foods, that taste good, but damage your body. Burger, fries and all other oily or cheesy food, just gives you fat and less nutrition. Go green, go healthy and stay fit!Consume fibre: fibre is a good way to control glucose levels. It prevents the fast absorption of carbohydrates, thus preventing that spike in glucose levels. Recommened by doctors is 20 grams of fibre a day.Cut down on Alcohol: alcohol contains refined carbohydrates, that cause rapid absorption of carbohydrates and increase the glucose levels.Avoid smoking: cut down on those cancer sticks, they not only cause diabetes, but heart, lung and all sorts of other cancers.Listen to music, not TV while you eat: when you watch TV your sense go down, thus you eat more! If you want to shed weight, eat when you are not watching TV!Educate yourself: It is very important that you know, what you are up against! The more info and knowledge you have on diabetes, the more easier it is for you to control or prevent it!Get screened: regular health checkups and glucose level monitoring, especially if you have a family history is very important. Prevention is better than cure, know where you are and work towards avoiding getting diabetes.
