Type 2 Diabetes And Weight Control  

Diabetes is a metabolic disorder, which causes the blood sugar (glucose) levels to rise sharply. While the beta cells in the pancreas completely stop producing insulin in the case of Type-1 diabetes, inadequate amounts of insulin are produced or insulin resistance develops in the case of Type-2 diabetes and the body can no longer use the insulin produced for converting glucose into energy to meet our daily energy requirements.

If you are obese or overweight, then you are highly prone to the risk of developing Type-2 diabetes. The most common risk factors for Type-2 diabetes are poor diet regime, insulin resistance, and sedentary lifestyle due to complete lack of exercises. Poor diet regimes involves regular consumption of sweets, desserts and high glycemic meals and taking excess fried fast foods or junk foods, laden with loads of white sugar, refined flour, and unhealthy oils. Physical inactivity, eating high glycemic index diets and obesity (particularly in the middle region of your body) are factors that greatly intensify insulin resistance in an individual.

It is advisable to go for well-balanced wholesome meals that contain high fiber content, high protein content, low concentration of fats (completely avoid trans-fats and saturated fats), complex carbohydrates (having low glycemic index), green leafy vegetables, fresh fruits and healthy oils in order to control the blood sugar levels and makes you less susceptible to Insulin resistance. It is also highly advisable to maintain regular meal timings.

Regular physical workouts and exercises help in achieving weight reduction, controls blood sugar levels and improve insulin sensitivity. In addition to improving circulation, losing weight also lowers the amount of diabetes medication that you need to take.

Scientific studies indicate that doing medium-intensity exercises for 30 minutes, on 5 days of a week, aids in losing 5-7 percent of body weight, which is effective in delaying the onset of Type-2 diabetes or preventing it altogether. You should also try to reduce your daily caloric intake by about 500 calories if you are overweight or obese.
