Diabetes and your Weight
How to decrease your risk of Diabetes
Often, there are screenings for diabetes at drug stores throughout the year or tell you doctor you want to be checked for diabetes. Have your blood checked periodically if you are at risk, and discuss the signs and symptoms with your doctor.
Secondly, if you are overweight and do not have diabetes, losing weight (even 10 or 20 pounds) can reduce your risk of developing diabetes. If you already have diabetes, diet and exercise are cornerstones to treatment and control of blood sugar. There's no getting around it! Diet and exercise are the way to go for a long and healthy life.
