It is marking the day with the theme ‘Beat diabetes’.
Health experts believe that the problem has been growing at an alarming rate mainly from unhealthy eating habits, lack of physical activity and stress, improving these habits can result in a ‘win-win’ situation over the problem.
Here are five tips to beat the type 2 diabetes:
Increase physical activity: Walk, dance, hit the gym or just choose any of the outdoor games to remain physically active.
Improve diet: Eat fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, beans, lean meats, and low-fat dairy. Avoid fast food.
Get checked for Sleep Apnea: Sleep apnea is a condition where a person stops breathing temporarily while sleeping. This situation can cause heart attack to a diabetic person. Thus, treating it on time is of utmost importance. One of the symptoms of Sleep Apnea is loud snoring.
Drink a cup of green tea daily: It has flavonoid which is a powerful inflammation-fighter and reduces the risk of diabetes.
Chase away stress: Choose your stress buster and say no to stress, yoga, music and meditation are recognised as some of the good stress busters.
