Diabetes prevention tips.


It is always a bit difficult spelling out the exact prevention tips for a disease that still has almost unknown causes. However, considering the risk factors we mentioned in the earlier pages, there may be things you can do to reduce your chances of getting diabetes. These suggestions may also prolong or postpone the onset of getting it.

diabetesRegular exercise or physical activity
Exercise helps the body’s circulation and keeps the body from developing excess fat. It helps check weight gain and reduces the chances of getting diabetes. Teens and young people should avoid sitting at one place for longer periods of the day. Things like excessively watching TV, playing computer and screen games and sleeping all the time should be avoided if possible. Exercise also helps insulin work better to control the level of glucose in the blood.
A study by George Washington University found out that A 15-minute walk after each meal could prevent older people developing type-2 diabetes. Elevated blood sugar after meals could increase the risk of type-2 diabetes, so resting after eating "is the worst thing you can do", the study said.
