So, can you prevent diabetes? Well, the answer is yes and no.
Yes to a large extent with Type 2 Diabetes and no for type 1 which is considered an autoimmune disease.
Fortunately (if we can say that) type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes, and largely preventable with GOOD lifestyle choices. Therefore it makes good sense that everyone should learn how to prevent diabetes, from a very early age – not wait until its too late!
Tips on How to Prevent Diabetes
Keeping blood glucose levels as close to normal as safely possible reduces the risk of developing major complications of type 1 diabetes.
Careful meal planning and exercise to control your weight are important to control your diabetes.
Trials have shown that the onset of type 2 diabetes can be prevented or delayed in people at high risk by losing 5 to 7 percent of body weight and getting 30 minutes of physical activity such as brisk walking on most days.
The good news is that these lifestyle changes worked for men and women, for people of every ethnic or racial group who participated in the study, and it was especially successful for people over age 60.
To help you lose weight, eat a healthy diet that includes a balance of all the food groups, with less fatty foods, foods lower in cholesterol, and more foods rich in fiber.
Too much fat or cholesterol and inactivity can make you overweight and prevent your body from functioning effectively. Not being able to regulate blood sugar correctly is one effect. Cut down on fat and cholesterol by choosing low-fat dairy products, lean cuts of meat, more fish, and poultry without the skin, and margarine instead of butter.
Also, limit foods high in salt and sugar.
