93% of you can reduce the risk of diabetes with lifestyle changes!
Luckily, 4 key lifestyle changes can help. People who didn’t smoke, maintained a healthy body weight, exercised on a regular basis, and ate a diet of fruits, veggies and whole grains and less red meat had a 93% lower risk of diabetes.
Getting plenty of sleep may be helpful too. In a study, people who got up to 8 hours of sleep in a 2-week period were less prone to insulin resistance than those who only got 5.5 hours of sleep. It’s thought that more sleep makes your cells more sensitive to insulin, whereas less sleep can raise your hormone levels, which can be linked to higher blood sugar.
