Lower Your Risk of Developing Type Two Diabetes by Doing This One Simple Thing

Lower Your Risk of Diabetes

With a little bit of awareness and some dedication — you can almost halve your risk of developing diabetes

Gosh, I wish I had immersed myself in the abundant information backed by science regarding type two diabetes.

Sometimes, we only pay attention when we have to. My mother was diagnosed many years ago, and I often asked her why she used to continue eating the wrong foods. Mum enjoyed life, being with friends, and going to functions, resulting in eating (or overeating) the wrong foods.

Mum always had something kind and soft to say — such as liking the food she indulged in. I can understand that. I’m no food saint, and many times over, I have overindulged in the wrong foods — even dairy, which I am allergic to. Overindulging in dairy didn’t harm my health; it only stuffed up my gut bacteria — and now I’m paying the price by having an excessively overactive gut.

We all pay the price for what we did in our youth when we start to age. The body can’t take it anymore; of course, it cannot re-generate as it did when we were young. That’s when disease and even death can manifest, diminishing our quality of life.

It doesn’t have to be extreme

You don’t need to go on an extreme diet; eliminate all the foods you love and stop enjoying the foodie life. A study found that making modest lifestyle changes, including losing 2–3 kg of weight, plus increasing your physical activity over about two years, decreases your risk of type two diabetes by about 40–47 per cent. This only applies to those who are categorised as having prediabetes.

Currently, there are about eight million people with prediabetes.

About 4.5 million have already developed type two diabetes in the UK. It’s a very startling epidemic currently crippling our health system worldwide. The researchers tested these simple lifestyle interventions, which helped people make small yet achievable changes that led to modest weight loss results while increasing their physical activity. These changes only worked when people sustained those weight loss and activity levels for over two years, and the weight wasn’t returned.

Therefore, keeping yourself in check and on track is essential no matter what occurs throughout your life. Since this is such a small amount of effort that equals a huge amount of gains, it poses good news for millions of people in the UK who are diagnosed every day with prediabetes.

This straightforward action plan can help anyone in any part of the world. Clinical methods for diagnosing diabetes have changed over the past few years. As a result, more and more doctors encourage changing your lifestyle before throwing different drugs at patients.

Our doctor told my mother to change her lifestyle, and together, we devised a plan of action that saw her lose over 14kg in a year. The strategy was modified by fasting and limiting carbs, with a walk on an empty stomach every morning.

As a result, her walking increased substantially throughout her diabetes diagnosis. Despite her death from pancreatic cancer, I can confidently say that we did our best, and perhaps if we had done something a lot earlier — she would be alive today. I want to encourage you to celebrate your life by changing your habits and activities to increase your longevity, quality, and living standards.

You deserve to live a long and happy life — all you must do is decide so today.
