What is Diabetes?
Benefits of Controlling Diabetes
Recent studies have clearly shown that good blood sugar control can prevent or delay the complications of diabetes. The healthy lifestyle that can control diabetes also helps to prevent other physical problems. Education is recognized as key to managing this common, but serious condition.
Persons who are at high risk for diabetes can significantly reduce their chances of developing diabetes with a healthy diet and regular exercise. A moderately strenuous exercise program for 30 minutes per day reduces risk of Type 2 diabetes over 30%.
