If you are overweight or have a parent, brother, or sister with type 2 diabetes, or if you had gestational diabetes—diabetes that develops during pregnancy, you are at increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes. However, diabetes does not have to be your destiny.
Type 2 diabetes can be delayed or even prevented. The longer you have diabetes, the more likely you are to develop health problems, so delaying diabetes even a few years will benefit your health. You can help prevent or delay type 2 diabetes in your family by promoting healthy eating, engaging in regular physical activities and establishing a healthy lifestyle.
January is National Family Fit Lifestyle month and what better time than now to get the entire family to begin establishing healthy lifestyle habits to beat diabetes.
