Take Control of Your Health
Take small steps to lead a healthier lifestyle can make a big different in lowering your risk of developing diabetes. Diabetes is a chronic condition that affects the amount of insulin a person’s body produces. You can prevent or lower your risk of diabetes by making healthier food choices, increasing your physical activity, losing weight, quit smoking or reducing your alcohol intake.
Diabetes prevention is especially important if you are overweight or have a family history of the disease. It’s important to visit your doctor for regular glucose screenings if you fall into one of these categories. Early detection can also help you avoid serious health complications of diabetes down the road.
