Ways to Prevent Diabetes, Based on Science

Ways to Prevent Diabetes, Based on Science

Diabetes is not a piece of cake; it’s a chronic disease that affects millions of adults around the world. Untreated diabetes can lead to kidney failure, heart disease, loss of consciousness, and other serious consequences. Also, it can reduce life expectancy by up to fifteen years!

If you have prediabetes at this point in your life, you should take measures in order to prevent diabetes development. There are some risk factors that you can’t change (e.g., family history, past behaviors, or age). On the other hand, some actions can help you to reduce the risk of diabetes progression:

Regular physical activity

If you want to add years to your life and feel better every day, you should start working out. It doesn’t matter whether you go to the gym or yoga, just make sure to do this regularly. Daily physical activity helps to control weight, combat health conditions, improve mood, boost energy, and promote better sleep. Also, it can help you get into the best shape of your life and prevent diabetes.

Quit smoking

Most probably, smokers have already heard of this one. According to multiple studies, smoking increases the risk of diabetes by 60% in people who smoke one pack of cigarettes per day.

Stick to a diet

Most people think that sticking to a diet is real torture. The truth is that a healthy eating plan can contain a lot of tasty foods.

If you want to lead a healthy lifestyle, start following a very-low-carb diet. Make sure to include fish, beans, lean meats, nuts, low-fat dairy products. You will have to avoid trans fats, foods high in sugar and salt. Also, it’s recommended to control portion sizes and create a meal schedule.

Consult with your doctor

You shouldn’t ignore any health problems since it’s easier to solve them in the early phases of development. Visit your doctor to monitor insulin resistance. Keep in mind that you can go to a medical supply store only with your doctor’s prescription. Stop self-medication before it’s too late.
