What can you do to lower your risk of developing type 2 Diabetes?

You can’t do anything about your age or your genetic predisposition. On the other hand, the rest of the factors predisposing to diabetes, such as overweightness, abdominal obesity, sedentary lifestyle, eating habits and smoking are up to you. Your lifestyle choices can completely prevent type 2 diabetes or at least delay is onset a much greater age.
If there is diabetes in your family, you should be careful not to weight over the years. Growth of the waistline, in particular, increases the risk of diabetes, whereas regular moderate physical activity will lower the risk. You should also pay attention to your diet; take care to eat plenty of fiber-rich cereal products and vegetables every day. Omit excess hard fats from your diet and favour soft vegetable fats.
Early stages of type 2 diabetes seldom cause any symptoms. If you scored 12-14 points in the Risk Test, you would be well advised to seriously consider your physical activities and eating habits and pay attention to your weight, to prevent yourself from developing diabetes. Please contact your doctor for further guidance and tests.
If you score 15 points or more in the Risk Test, you should have your blood glucose measured (both fasting value and value after a dose of glucose or a meal) to determine if you have diabetes without symptoms.

Body-mass index: if your body-mass index is 25-30, you will benefit from losing weight; at least you should take care that your weight does not increase beyond this. If your body-mass index is higher than 30, the adverse health effects of obesity will start to show, and it will be essential to lose weight.

  1. Diabetes is reversible. I am talking about the most common form of diabetes which is type 2.

    I have reversed it in so many cases myself and there are documented cases of thousands of people who have reversed diabetes with the help of experts.

    Glucose is the sugar which is used by every cell of the body to produce energy. This is carried by a hormone insulin to most of the cells. When sugar levels are high, the cells do not allow sugar inside and that is when we say Insulin has become ineffective. i.e. Insulin sensitivity has come down and the condition is known as Diabetes when excess sugar starts to circulate in the blood.

    Even the fat cells no longer store sugar. So any activity which burns energy will make your insulin sensitive and push glucose inside the cells reducing your sugar levels in the blood. When the intake of sugar is reduced, a similar result is observed.

    It takes a long time for the body to reverse diabetes and the body needs a lot of nutrients, as in a diabetic State the body is depleted of many nutrients.

    Diabetics are prone to infection and other chronic diseases like kidney failure, heart disease etc.

    Therefore it is important that you reverse the diabetes with a controlled and customized diet and not by yo yo dieting like reducing food intake. I definitely think that every parent needs to check out the site www.DiabetesReversalTactics.info if you’re serious about reversing your type 2 diabetes.

    Good luck!
