How to Prevent Diabetes and Its Complications
Diabetes, also called Diabetes Mellitus, is a disorder of metabolism. The disease affects multiple organs and brings various complications, accounting for increasingly deaths throughout the world. If you take good control of the disease, the same thing won’t happen again. So what should diabetics do about that?
Having Diabetes puts somebody at increased high risk for developing heart disease, stroke, nerve problem, eye disease, foot disease and Renal Failure. People with Diabetes can lower the risk of suffering from those serious complications by some certain measures. Today I’d like to list some of them and hope can help you.
First things first, before doing anything, you should first realize the severity of the disease and how it would affect your life. After completing your understanding of the disease, then you are able to make your commitment to fight against the disease for a life-long time. Combating Diabetes Mellitus is more like a responsibility than a mission.
Secondly, choose diet wisely.
Watch what you eat is vital to diabetics, plus, if you suffer from Renal Failure or some other kind of kidney disease, following a kidney-friendly diet is also important. I will give you one example, diabetics don’t need to cut their carbs completely. On the contrary, whole grains, fresh vegetables and right fruits are acceptable. However, if one develops Renal Failure induced by Diabetes, then some foods such as beans and nuts are not recommended. Yes, I know learn to choose your foods wisely is really hard sometimes, but it worthwhile. Any confusions? Ask your dietitian or our on live support for help.
Thirdly, being physical active.
I mean get out and take some exercises. It is especially true for those with Diabetes Mellitus. Choose jogging, walking, dancing, yoga, whatever you like, just shake off a few pounds. Exercise helps you lower the cardiovascular risk, reduce your blood pressure and lower the blood sugar. It can give you more energy and really make you feel good! Ready? Let’s go!
Last but not the least, monitor your blood sugar every single day.
Checking the blood sugar daily does help you avoid those complications, and check how your diet affects you. Pay regular visits to your doctors and get yourself a physical exam as well as eye exam is worthwhile.
