How Lifestyle Changes Can Help Delay or Prevent Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes is a serious and potentially life-threatening condition that affects millions of people worldwide. It is caused by a combination of lifestyle factors, such as being overweight, having a poor diet, leading a sedentary lifestyle and having certain underlying medical conditions. While there is currently no cure for Type 2 diabetes, making lifestyle changes can delay or even prevent the onset of the condition. Eating a healthy diet, becoming more physically active, and managing stress can all help to reduce the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. By making these lifestyle changes and taking other preventative measures such as regular medical check-ups and monitoring blood sugar levels, individuals can significantly reduce their risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.


What is Type 2 Diabetes?

Type 2 diabetes is a condition in which the pancreas does not produce enough insulin, a hormone that helps to transport glucose, or blood sugar, from the bloodstream into the body’s cells. Insulin is produced in the pancreas in response to the food you eat. In people with diabetes, the pancreas fails to produce enough insulin. Insulin is then used to transport glucose into the cells of your body, where it can be used for energy. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease in which the pancreas produces less or no insulin. Type 1 can occur at any age, but is more common in adults between 30 and 50 years old. In type 2 diabetes, the degree of insulin deficiency is usually mild, and the pancreas may produce insulin in response to glucose.


Tooth health may indicate diabetes risk


Poor dental health may be linked with increased risk for diabetes, a new study suggests. The results will be presented in a poster Monday, March 19, at ENDO 2018, the 100th annual meeting of the Endocrine Society in Chicago, Ill.

"The health of your teeth maybe a sign of your risk for ," said lead author Raynald Samoa, M.D., an assistant professor in the Department of Diabetes, Endocrinology & Metabolism at City of Hope National Medical Center in Duarte, Calif.

"Our findings suggest that dental exams may provide a way to identify someone at risk for developing diabetes. We found a progressive positive relationship between worsening  and the number of missing teeth. Although a causal relationship cannot be inferred from this cross-sectional study, it demonstrates that poor dental outcome can be observed before the onset of overt diabetes," he said.

Health warning: Two fizzy drinks a week increases heart disease, diabetes and stroke risk

DRINKING just two cans of fizzy pop a week can increase the risk of diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and stroke, scientists warned today.

Fizzy drinks


Researchers uncovered evidence to prove a positive association between sugary drinks and weight gain, plus the eventual risk of developing metabolic syndrome – a cluster of risk factors that raise the chances of developing heart problems and diabetes.

The study suggests drinking two sugar-sweetened drinks a week increases the risk of Type 2 diabetes.

One is enough to raise blood pressure.

The risks from consuming such drinks also included fat stomachs, high levels of fats in the blood, raised blood pressure and reduced “good” cholesterol levels.

Could diabetes spread like mad cow disease?

Prions are insidious proteins that spread like infectious agents and trigger fatal conditions such as mad cow disease. A protein implicated in diabetes, a new study suggests, shares some similarities with these villains. Researchers transmitted diabetes from one mouse to another just by injecting the animals with this protein. The results don’t indicate that diabetes is contagious like a cold, but blood transfusions, or even food, may spread the disease.

The work is “very exciting” and “well-documented” for showing that the protein has some prionlike behavior, says prion biologist Witold Surewicz of Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, who wasn’t connected to the research. However, he cautions against jumping to the conclusion that diabetes spreads from person to person. The study raises that possibility, he says, but “it remains to be determined.”

Does Moderate Drinking Reduce Your Risk of Diabetes?

A new study found more health benefits with moderate drinking … but it does matter what you drink and whether you're male or female.


Drink two glasses of wine and don’t call me in the morning.

It’s the advice you wish you’d get from your doctor. Well, now that may be a possibility — at least when it comes to diabetes.

People who drink moderately may have a lower risk of developing diabetes than those who abstain, according to a new study published in Diabetologia, the journal of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes.

“The study by Holst and colleagues took data from a health survey for over 70,000 Danish adults and observed fewer new cases of diabetes with moderate alcohol intake than with abstinence over the course of five years,” said Dr. Ronald Tamler, medical director of the Mount Sinai Clinical Diabetes Institute, who was not involved in the study.

The lowest risk of developing diabetes was seen in people consuming moderate amounts of alcohol — 14 drinks per week for men (43 percent lower risk), and nine drinks per week for women (58 percent lower risk).
