When you have too much sugar in your system, you are asking for it. You can become diabetic that way, and then be hooked on to a boring lifetime of hard living and uncomfortable medications. You can afford to not have to deal with that, so work at it.
At the time you get to weigh up to 20% more than what your body weight should be, you are becoming obese. Added to that, you are now more prone to suffering diabetes than 80% of the American population. You want to check things before they get that bad.
There are certain foods that you may eat to help you so that you don’t catch diabetes. They vary slightly based on your metabolism and body type. You want to have the doctor line them out for you so that you can begin to stock your house with them.
You could start an association for diabetics in your neighborhood. The lot of you could hold periodic meetings and exchange experiences and ideas of how to live with the condition. I have a feeling it will make life a lot easier.
People newly diagnosed with diabetes have to take some time getting used to the new lifestyle they are going to have to live and love. In truth it is not such a bad thing, except that you are not used to it. Especially, it is the food – you didn’t think that you would ever have had to settle to such foods only, but now you have to. You simply have to get used to it.
It is a fact that some people are genetically predisposed to obesity, and ultimately diabetes. You want to help these folks through their situation, not make worse for them by telling them things like there isn’t anything they can do about it, because there is. Help them find it; help them do it.
