Preventative Measures

Know the Facts

Data collected from various clinical trials suggested that type 2 diabetes is indeed a preventable disease. While a genetic predisposition may influence your chances of acquiring diabetes, the right lifestyle and behavioral changes can make all the difference on how soon you acquire diabetes. A study conducted by The Diabetes Prevention Program monitored the effects of increased exercise and weight loss on developing type 2 diabetes among men and women who had high blood sugar readings that were not yet considered diabetic. After 3 years the study proved that there were 58% fewer cases of diabetes in those that participated in weight loss and integrated exercise into their daily routine.

With just a few lifestyle changes you can lower the chances of developing type 2 diabetes. These same changes can also contribute in decreasing the chances of developing heart disease and some cancers.

The following are latest prevention tips from the American Diabetes Association

#1 Get more physical activity
#2 Eat Foods high in fiber
#3 Eat food made from whole grains
#4 Control your weight
#5 Avoid fad diets and make healthier choices

Other Factors to Consider:

  • Avoid sugary drinks.  Choose water, coffee, or tea instead
  • Choose good fats instead of bad fats
  • Limit red meat and avoid processed meat

#1 Get more physical activity

Inactivity is a large contributor to acquiring type II diabetes. Muscle training is the preferred method of exercise for diabetics.  Working your muscles improves their ability to use insulin and absorb glucose putting less stress on the cells that make insulin.

Adding a good exercise routine in your busy schedule may be a hard task within itself.  However, studies show that something as simple as taking a brisk walk for a half an hour every day can reduce the risk of developing type II diabetes by more than 30%.  Both aerobic exercise and muscle/resistance training can help control diabetes, but the greatest benefits comes by combining both programs into your exercise regimen.

#2 Eat Foods high in fiber

Increasing fiber intake can reduce your risk of diabetes by improving your blood sugar control, decreasing your risk of heart disease and promoting weight loss by helping you feel full.

Foods high in fiber include fruits, vegetables, beans, whole grains, nuts and seeds.

#3 Eat food made from whole grains

Research has shown that diets rich in whole grains protect against diabetes while diets that had food rich in refined carbohydrates actually proved to increase the risk of acquiring diabetes.  Foods such as white rice & bread, mashed potatoes, donuts bagels and more have a high glycemic index.  Foods with a high glycemic index cause sudden and sustained sugar spikes in the body.  Whole grain foods that have fiber and bran make it difficult for the digestive enzymes to break down the starches into glucose leading to lower blood sugar levels.

#4 Control your weight

Being overweight is the single most important cause of type 2 diabetes. The chances of developing type 2 diabetes is increased by 7 fold in people that are overweight. Being obese makes you 20 to 40 times more likely to develop diabetes than someone with a healthy weight. If you're overweight, diabetes prevention may be dependent on weight loss. Every pound you lose can improve your health and you may be surprised by how much. Participants in one large study who lost around 7 percent of their initial body weight and exercised on a regular basis reduced their risk of developing diabetes by almost 60 percent.

#5 Avoid fad diets and make healthier choices

While fad diets may be a “quick fix” they don’t carry the long term benefits that a healthy dietary lifestyle change can bring.  Most fad diets equate to unhealthy, restrictive low-carb diets that may in fact be excluding foods that have vital nutrients that your body needs.  The American Diabetes Association recommends blood glucose screening if you are age 45 or older and overweight, you are younger than age 45 and overweight with one or more additional risk factors for type 2 diabetes such as a sedentary lifestyle or a family history of diabetes.
