Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease in which the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas are destroyed by the body’s own defense cells. The development of type 1 diabetes cannot be avoided for the lifestyle.
However, the type 2 diabetes, the most common form of the disease, is influenced by habits and lifestyle. The onset of the disease can be delayed, or even completely prevented, if healthy habits are adopted.
Prevention of type 2 diabetes
Nutrition and weight
Studies show that there is a direct correlation between increased abdominal fat and risk of diabetes. Most type 2 diabetics are overweight. Obesity increases insulin resistance. Therefore, weight loss leads to better insulin effectiveness and reduces the likelihood of developing type 2 diabetes.
Try to make your diet more balanced and varied. You don’t need to go hungry, but reducing the proportion of foods high in carbohydrates and fat in your diet can make you significantly healthier. Seek advice from your doctor or nutritionist.
Regular exercise prevents obesity, increases muscle mass and helps improve metabolism. THE practice of physical activities reduces the resistance of the body’s cells to insulin and helps insulin to work more effectively. On the other hand, muscle cells consume more energy than fat cells causing the blood sugar level to drop.
Smoking impairs glucose metabolism and reduces insulin properties. It is best to stop smoking and also not to stay in environments where there is cigarette smoke.
