Ways to Prevent Diabetes

Diabetes is a chronic disease that affects millions of people worldwide. Uncontrolled cases can cause blindness, kidney failure, heart disease and other serious conditions.
Before diabetes is diagnosed, there is a period where blood sugar levels are high but not high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. This is known as prediabetes.
It's estimated that up to 70% of people with prediabetes go on to develop type 2 diabetes. Fortunately, progressing from prediabetes to diabetes isn't inevitable.
Although there are certain factors you can't change — such as your genes, age or past behaviors — there are many actions you can take to reduce the risk of diabetes.
Here are 10 ways to avoid getting diabetes.

  1. Cut Sugar and Refined Carbs From Your Diet.
  2. Work Out Regularly.
  3. Drink Water as Your Primary Beverage.
  4. Lose Weight If You're Overweight or Obese.
  5. Quit Smoking.
  6. Follow a Very-Low-Carb Diet.
  7. Eat a High-Fiber Diet.
  8. Optimize Vitamin D Levels.
  9. Minimize Your Intake of Processed Foods.
  10. Drink Coffee or Tea
