Healthy Lifestyles

Lifestyle intervention can be very effective in preventing or postponing the progression to diabetes. Even the loss of 5-10 pounds can help reduce diabetes risks. Daily activity and a healthy lifestyle can have a positive impact on how you feel and your ability to control your blood sugar levels. Some immediate and long term effects may include reducing the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes and lowering the risk of heart disease or stroke. Improving your blood glucose (sugar) levels can help reduce the risk of diabetes complications. Any activity that gets you up and moving for an extended period of time can be of great benefit to your health. It is important to monitor your blood glucose levels before, during and after any planned activity.
