The majority of people with diabetes suffer from Type 2 diabetes. Unlike Type 1 diabetes, Type 2 diabetes is not only manageable, but also preventable. Studies by the University of Arizona and its MSN online department revealed that Type 2 diabetes can be controlled through simple routines. More importantly, this type of diabetes can be prevented to a certain extent.
Through a healthy diet and regular exercise, you can actually avoid contracting Type 2 diabetes altogether. Of course, there are still those who get this type of diabetes due to genetics and ageing. In both of these cases, assuming a healthier lifestyle and exercising regularly can reduce your dependency on oral medications and insulin.
There are even dietary programs and exercise routines designed specifically to improve the body’s ability to regulate blood sugar and utilize insulin. You can learn more about it from the full infographic, Understanding Chronic Conditions: Diabetes below.
