Reduce Risk of Type 2 Diabetes
Type 2 Diabetes is often a disabling disease
that you will have for the rest of your life if you do not control it. Total, Americans pay more than $130 billion each
year to treat their Diabetes. By eliminating or reducing your chances
of getting Diabetes, you will not only improve your quality of life,
but you will also reduce the amount of money you need to spend on
maintaining your health.
According to the American Diabetes Association (ADA) managing diet and controlling body fat can help to prevent Type 2 diabetes in someone with pre-Diabetes. And it can help to reduce diabetes complications if you already have
the disease. By making very simple lifestyle changes early, you can become healthy, active and strong.
Many people think that in order to prevent Diabetes or to manage the
complications of Diabetes, they need to make drastic lifestyle changes,
such as a complete diet make-over or becoming a gym-rat. While eating
healthy and exercising can certainly reduce the risks associated with
Diabetes (and other health-related conditions), you do not need to make
large-scale changes in order to be healthy.
In fact, according to the ADA, you may be able to delay the on-set of Diabetes and Diabetes complications by taking the right medication . However, nutrition and exercise have the same effects on your body as medication, as long as you do not yet have full-blown Diabetes.
