Manage the weight
Too much fats in the belly, mean we develop insulin resistance. This leads to diabetes.
Moderate workouts almost every or every day manage the weight, pressure and glucose in blood, but cholesterol too.
Reduce the saturated and trans fats from foods. Opt for fruits, veggies and fibers. And, less salt!
Limit processed foods
Such foods have too much salt, fats and calories. Opt for fresh foods.
Too much of this makes weight gain and more pressure and triglycerides. Men must limit themselves to 2 drinks and women just 1.
Smokers have double risks of diabetes.
Most people can manage this with workouts, good diet and healthy lifestyle. But sometimes meds are needed so talk with the doctor.
Less heart issue risks
Heart issues and diabetes are closely linked but the main common risk factors they share are no workouts and obesity.
As you age, you need to see the doctor more frequently to check the pressure, glucose and cholesterol too.
