Type Two diabetes is something that can be developed over time due to poor eating and exercise habits. Conversely, it is also something that can be reversed through smart and effective eating and exercise habits. However, the problem here lies in the fact that far too many people rely on prescription drugs or medical surgeries to turn their health around, rather than sticking to the basics and living a healthy lifestyle.
First off, to understand if you are at risk of type two diabetes you need to know your numbers. This refers to your cholesterol level, BMI, blood pressure and body fat percentage. Once you know this things you will have a better picture of your overall health and you will be able to better assist your risk of type two diabetes and your course of action.
Nearly 70% of all Americans are on at least one prescription drug. However, studies have shown that many of these drugs are treating issues that could be avoided by changing one’s lifestyle. So, the option is yours: try to improve your situation by taking drugs that could have adverse side effects and potentially leave you in a situation where symptoms may return, or cure yourself by changing the way you act, not putting anything harmful in your body and gaining knowledge that will last and benefit you for a lifetime?
At the Clinic we like to advocate for the latter. Rather than putting synthetic, man made drugs into your body or performing medical surgeries to improve your health, we believe in simply changing ones lifestyle for long-term results. This process begins with being proactive in tow aspects of your life. First, being considerate and conscious of what you eat and put into your body; and second, making an effort to burn calories through exercise. This simple formula, if effectively put to use, can turn your life around whether you are slightly overweight or suffer from type two diabetes. Ditch the drugs. Change your lifestyle.
