I will like to know if there is anything someone can do to prevent diabetes particularly where close members of the family have already been diagnosed.
@Sage83, many thanks for your enquiries. Generaly speaking, paying attention to your diet and your life style can reduce the risk of developing diabetes if you already have a family history. The tips below will help you:
1.Exercise at least 30minutes 5days/week
2.Eat low carbohydrate diet but increase fruits and vegetables.
3.Avoid junk foods, sugary drinks, sodas
4.Cut down on or quit alcohol
5.Monitor your blood sugar regularly.
6.Read articles about Diabetes to educate yourself.
