A lot of people who die due to stroke or heart disease seem to also suffer from diabetes. This tells you like a scream in your face that diabetes is very much a killer disease. You need to be careful around the condition so that it does not get the better of you.
To deal with diabetes, you need first a healthier diet, and then you need the best of regular exercise that you can muster. If you cannot make that happen you are only asking to die.
If you can’t seem to keep your stress level down as a diabetic patient, try the deep breathing exercise. It’s a very wonderful way of keeping your stress level down. Lots of people say it works very well for them. How does it work? Simple. Spend some time each day to take in four or more deep breaths, a couple of time. This will help to make your respiration and circulation enter a kind of relaxed mode and keep your stress level down.
I know you are not used to working out and all that, but in the interest on your own future health, you might want to begin considering it. Besides the fact that it keeps you healthy all round, you get to avoid catching diabetes. If for nothing else, that alone is a major plus!
Anything that you are doing that is getting you obese is likely going to get you diabetic as well. I suggest you begin to check your diet already and take steps to include some exercise in your daily routine.
Whatever you are able to learn about diabetes is worth it when you have someone living with you who suffers from the disease. You get to know what foods they should be eating, and what they should not. And if there are other lifestyles that they should adopt, you know it too.
