4 WAYS TO REDUCE YOUR CHANCES OF GETTING DIABETES:


1. Get more physical activity

Research shows that aerobic exercise and resistance training can help control diabetes. The greatest benefit comes from a fitness program that includes both.

2. Get plenty of fiber
Reduce your risk of diabetes by improving your blood sugar control.
Foods high in fiber include fruits, vegetables, beans, whole grains and nuts.

3. Skip fad diets and just make healthier choices
Low-carb diets, the glycemic index diet or other fad diets may help you lose weight at first. But their effectiveness at preventing diabetes isn't known, nor are their long-term effects. And by excluding or strictly limiting a particular food group, you may be giving up essential nutrients. Instead, make variety and portion control part of your healthy-eating plan

4. Get checked out.
It's very important that you visit your doctor to get checked for diabetes. Early detection can save your life.

Visit your nearest Peermed Healthcare Centre to get professional advice from one of our qualified doctors.
