With a sedentary lifestyle governing our lives and our busy lifestyle pulling us away from exercise who wouldn’t feel the need to take care of their health?
Diabetes is a dangerous disease that is caused when your pancreas doesn’t produce enough insulin to control blood glucose levels in our body. Diabetes is known for causing many complications such as loss of eyesight, edema, liver failure, and chronic kidney disease.
According to the World Health Organisation, more than 1.6 million deaths were directly caused by Diabetes in 2015. These numbers are staggering. However, it’s not too late.
Here are a few simple things you can do to prevent Diabetes:
Eat Healthy Food
Yes, eat healthy food. While this may sound like such a repetitive phrase for everything, it works. Eating healthy can not only prevent the risk of diabetes but it also helps you stay healthy, maintain a good weight, and keep you active.
Avoid Sugar, Fat and Midnight Snacking
Sugar, the one thing that can make everyone so happy can be very dangerous. The work that we all have these days often make us skip meals and this encourages midnight snacking. Sure, a piece of cake or a healthy milkshake in the middle of the night might taste good, but it will cost u a lot. Avoid eating excess sugar or fat.
Workout At Least Once A Day
Working out can improve your health immensely; both physically and mentally. Working out helps you maintain your physique and gives you a chance to shed that excess weight. Many doctors also suggest that working out can help manage stress and improve mental health. Proper physical exercise can help you prevent diabetes.
Manage Your Stress
Believe it or not, stress is the major cause of Diabetes. Unfortunately, the work culture that we have all adopted or have been accustomed to often induces a lot of stress. Alleviating stress can be quite difficult but managing the stress can be done. Whether it’s an hour without any electronic gadget or an hour of yoga, find out what relieves you of your stress.
Being diagnosed with Diabetes can be a traumatic experience for both the patient and their family. It can be quite expensive to manage. If you haven’t started being conscious about your health, then it’s time to start now.
If not for yourself, do it for your family. Start now!
