Risk factors for diabetes


❗️Reduce your risk of diabetes or prediabetes.

.

Reducing Risks means doing behaviors that minimize or prevent complications and negative outcomes of prediabetes and diabetes.

.

Risk factors for diabetes and prediabetes include:

Being overweight

Being 45 years or older

Having a parent, brother, or sister with type 2 diabetes

Being physically active less than 3 times a week

Ever having gestational diabetes (diabetes during pregnancy) or giving birth to a baby who weighed more than 9 pounds

Having polycystic ovary syndrome

.

Good news is that you can reduce your chances of getting diabetes by:

✔️LOSING WEIGHT. Statistics say that 80% of people who have diabetes are overweight

✔️EXERCISING MORE.

✔️QUITTING SMOKING. Smoking has been proven to increase blood pressure levels, which are known to be a major cause of diabetes.

✔️EATING HEALTHY. Studies published in 2009 revealed that eating processed meat ups your risk of diabetes by 40% and more recent research has shown that vegetarians are a third less likely to suffer from heart problems, a stroke, or diabetes.

✔️CUTTING DOWN ON ALCOHOL. Heavy drinking can also lead to conditions such as chronic pancreatitis, which has a side-effect of diabetes.

.

Remember that insulin signaling is essential for brain health, and people with diabetes are at increased risk of cognitive impairment and dementia.
