Lifestyle changes to prevent diabetes

Diabetes being a lifestyle disorder, few lifestyle changes can make all the difference in the world.

 

Breath clean air

A recent report by Lancet says that diabetes could be linked to the air we breathe.

People living in a polluted environment had higher risk of inflammation that reduces insulin effectiveness.

The solution?

Clean air.

Take to long walks in the parks and grow shrubs and trees in and around your home to purify the air.

 

Drink plenty of water and avoid alcohol:

Stay hydrated. Water is rightly called the elixir of life and by far the best thing you could put inside your body. Don’t take soda or sugary drinks that up the risk of diabetes. Instead drink lots of water.

Drink only little alcohol intake as it can lead to weight gain and may upsurge your blood pressure and triglyceride levels.

Quit smoking

Smoking is no good for anyone. Smoking can stiffen up cardiac vessels and cause heart attacks, cancers and also contribute to diabetes. Smokers are twice as likely to develop diabetes as non-smokers.

 

Lose excess body fat

Too much body fat is one of the major reasons why you’re not able to control diabetes. It not only ups your risk but worsens the condition.

Sleep better

If you want better control over the disorder then sleeping better should help you. Someone who gets the required hours of sleep everyday is less prone to the risks of diabetes.
