According to the World Health Organization the incidence of those diagnosed with diabetes is growing by epidemic proportions. By their estimates 1 in 4 people will have type 2 diabetes by the year 2050. So, how can you ensure that you are not a statistic and avoid diabetes?
The most important thing you can do to avoid diabetes is eat properly and exercise regularly. Now, this isn’t as difficult as it sounds. By reducing or eliminating carbohydrates in your diet and replacing it with healthy omega 3 fats you reduce your risk for this disease tremendously. In the 1930’s this was the diet recommended by physicians that actually CURED people of diabetes. When the American Diabetes Association came into being they recommended the exact opposite and look where that has gotten us today. Now physicians are returning to this pre-depression era diet with amazing results.
You do not need to run to the nearest gym and sign up for a membership to get the exercise you need. A simple 45 minute walk at least 3 times per week will increase insulin production and help with keeping blood sugar levels regulated.
Maintaining a healthy weight by diligently following the above two recommendations will ensure that you avoid diabetes and the severe complications that can arise from it.
