Here are some ways to keep you away from diabetes:-
Eliminate Sugar and Refined Carbs from Your Diet
Sugar or refined carb intake can increase the risk of developing diabetes.
Pre-diabetic people develop resistant to the action of insulin. So, it stays high in the blood after taking the sugary substance. In that state, the pancreas produces more insulin to compensate for the sugar level, attempting to keep the blood sugar to a moderate level.
Over time, this process leads to progress higher blood sugar and insulin level to the point that turns this condition into diabetes type 2.
Indulge in Regular Workout or Physical Activity
“Precaution is better than cure”, diabetes is a chronic disease so, once you develop this disease there is no full-fledged cure for it, you can control your sugar level but you cannot fully get rid of it. Therefore, practicing regular physical activity might be helpful to prevent diabetes.
Heart rate increases during the high intensity of work-out which increases the insulin sensitivity of your cells. Exercise induces the requirement of insulin in the body to control your blood sugar levels.
According to a recent study, people with pre-diabetes need moderate-intensity exercise that increases 51% of insulin sensitivity and 85% of insulin sensitivity will be achieved by practicing high-intensity exercise. (8Trusted Source)
Drink Water instead of Sugary Beverages
Sugary drinks like fruit punch and sodas result in developing type 2 diabetes as well as latent autoimmune diabetes of adults (LADA).
Make your daily goal to drink water about 2 liters. Drinking water makes you starve less and reduce your urge to drinking sugary beverages; it will even help you shed your weight.
A study showed that drinking water half an hour before your meals will lessen your calorie intake and reduce your hunger.
If you replace sugar-water drinks like soda, shake, and juice with water, it will decrease the risk of diabetes.
