Healthcare tends to focus on treating diseases and conditions rather than preventing them. Most people are aware that chronic diseases increase the risk of death. In fact, research has shown that people with type 2 diabetes are twice as likely to die from cardiovascular disease. On a positive note, exercise and diet changes have been shown to decrease all chronic diseases by 80%.
A new study decided to examine whether people with PREdiabetes had benefits from diet and exercise. The findings showed that those who changed their lifestyle decreased their risk of dying by almost half of those that did not engage in lifestyle changes. So don’t wait to start eating better and getting healthy! Start today!
