Experts have opined that engaging in exercises and healthy diets that end up making you lose as little as 5 to 7 percent of your body weight (which is just 10 to about 14 pounds for someone of 200 pounds) is enough to keep diabetes at bay. Don’t believe them? I do and if you believe and take action, you too can keep diabetes away from your life.
Some people say the biggest problem they have with diabetes is that they have to manage it for the rest of their lives. As far as I’m concerned, that’s a good problem. Isn’t it better to manage diabetes and still be alive for a long time than to suddenly die without warning from sudden illnesses such as heart attack?
It’s necessary to always exercise, whether you have diabetes or not. I know it can get tiring sometimes, but here’s a technique to use that will help you. Instead of doing just any kind of exercise, do the one you love. If you love playing tennis for instance, you can spend more time on it, as a form of exercise.
If you have a problem with your diet and you don’t engage in lots of activity, you could very well be setting yourself up for diabetes. Yes, you read that right. Diabetes, especially the type II, is said to be largely due to poor diet as well as inactivity. Is that enough reason to improve your diet and inactivity or not? I sure hope it is.
Diabetes results when your body isn’t able to produce good enough insulin in your pancreas or if the cell simply refuses to positively respond to the produced insulin. Insulin’s importance is that it aids in the distribution of glucose to your brain, liver, muscles or stores fat when there’s just too much of glucose in your blood. The excess of the stored glucose in your blood is where the trouble is.
