Understanding the Link Between Lifestyle Choices and Your Risk of Type 2 Diabetes

Every choice you make has consequences, good or bad. Perhaps you absolutely love sugar. You love eating anything and everything that is loaded with refined sugar. Just reading those last two sentences has your mouth watering for a sweet, sugary treat! Hey, that is certainly your freedom of choice.

But when you put too much sugar into your body, you increase the risk of contracting type II diabetes. This is just one small example of how lifestyle choices can increase or decrease your risk of diabetes.

Dietary Relationship for Type II Diabetes

One of the most direct correlations between a lifestyle choice and whether or not you will develop type II diabetes exists because of the nutritional choices you make.

Saturated fats, trans fats and sugary foods dramatically raise your risk of type II diabetes. The same is true if you eat a diet full of processed foods.

Alternately, eating a lot of fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains almost instantly begins to lower your chances of contracting type II diabetes.

Smart Sleep Patterns Reduce Diabetes Risk

The quality of your sleep impacts your diabetes risk. Reduce the amount of sleep you get, and you increase your possibility of developing type II diabetes.

Sleep soundly and regularly, and that risk is lowered. Teens and adults can benefit from 7 to 8 hours of restful sleep each night.

Drop Some Weight to Drop Your Diabetes Risk

According to several studies, excess body fat is present in 2 out of 3 male diabetes sufferers. Too much excess body fat is even more of a diabetes red flag for women.

A full 3 out of every 4 women with type II diabetes are overweight or obese.

If you work diligently to reach and maintain a naturally healthy body weight you can dramatically improve your health, and reduce your diabetes risk.

Physical Activity – The Diabetes Wonder Cure

If you watch a lot of TV, work at a job which requires sitting down all day and get little exercise, you are practically begging type II diabetes to invade your body. Physical activity is so important for your health, both mentally and physically.

Regular aerobic and strength training exercising helps regulate a healthy blood sugar level, is extremely heart healthy, and improves your mental functioning while reducing your risk of contracting diabetes.

The Perfect 1 – 2 Punch Combo for Knocking Out Diabetes

Doctors now agree that medication is not the best way to prevent and or treat diabetes.

Enjoying a healthy diet while incorporating regular exercise has been proven in multiple studies as a better prevention and treatment tool for type II diabetes than medication.

Start eating smart, exercise regularly, and you can keep debilitating diabetes at bay.
