Chairwoman of the Slovak Society for Diabetology, Katharina Rashlova, showed how we can prevent diabetes.
To prevent type 2 diabetes, regular exercise and a healthy diet are the most important, Rashlova said exercises or any regular exercise with higher energy costs are the basis for future health.
In the Diabetes Prevention Program in 2002, physical activity has a greater impact than medications for preventing diabetes. Rashlova added that this also applies to other health problems. "I started moving the day a couple of years ago, and I canceled the habit of sitting down and working the next day, when I either put it off the next day, or the time when I came back from a five-kilometer quick walk, then I could plant both drugs took for high blood pressure, ”said the chairperson of the SDS. Regular movement in the brain also stimulates the production of blissful hormones – endorphins.
We also should not forget about nutrition. “Each meal should be optimally balanced with a single serving of fruit or vegetables. Fruits and vegetables contain fiber, vitamins and particles that positively affect the processes in the human body, ”says Rashlova.
In contrast, poor nutrition and excessive consumption of high-energy, low-fiber foods cause overweight and obesity. “This is the most important factor in the development of diabetes,” said SDS Deputy, Zbinek Schroner.
Type 2 diabetes accounts for more than 90 percent of all diabetes cases in the world, which, according to experts, mainly affect lifestyle and the environment. This was once called diabetic, but it is already present in children and young people.
