How to Avoid Type 2 Diabetes: 11 Steps

How to Avoid Type 2 Diabetes: 11 Steps | Deaconjohn1987's Blog

As you know I have Type 2 Diabetes and struggle to keep my blood sugar at an acceptable level. So when I see an article about avoiding or controlling diabetes, I want to share it with others like myself. I take my meds regularly and try to avoid sweets but you know that there is plenty of sugar in most foods bought today.

As the leading cause of kidney failure, lower-limb amputation, and blindness in developed countries, as well as increasing the likelihood of death from heart disease, diabetes mellitus is a modern-day scourge.

This article focuses on the ways in which you can seek to avoid Type 2 Diabetes, with close attention to changing risky behaviors (obesity, smoking, binging, sugary and fatty diet, ignoring the many symptoms half-expecting them to just go away,…).
