India has been crowned as the Diabetes capital of the world. Therefore, take a look at the ways in order to reduce the toll of the disease, which can shorten your life span by almost 15 years. Here are some important to do’s if you have been diagnosed with the disease:
- You should be taking it personally: Around 35% adults all over the world who are suffering from Diabetes or Prediabetes don’t know about the condition. If you are above 45 years of age or have a family history of the disease with some close relative suffering from it, go for a blood sugar test at regular intervals and keep your body fat in close check.
- Surgery Can Help: If you are suffering from Type 2 Diabetes and you cannot get your blood sugar level down, one of the most reliable treatment options is to go in for Bariatric Surgery such as Gastric Bypass. Though lifestyle changes are the first recommendation of every doctor, studies have shown that around 80% people with diabetes that go in for the surgical operation end up with normal blood sugar levels. If you are five foot three and have 90 kilos weight and above, you qualify for the surgery.
- Know the Worst Diet: It has been found that blood sugar levels tend to stay up high longer after consuming starchy and sugary meals which are also higher in fat content. It is recommended to avoid eating foods that are right in fats and carbs. Fats and carbs together are a lethal combination which can wreak havoc on your general health. A patient can benefit greatly by restricting carbs and fats.
