If you are carrying too much weight and have a family history of diabetes, it’s time to pay attention!
If not treated correctly, diabetes can cause serious health problems. In type 2 diabetes, a person can be insulin-resistant, or suffer from a lack of insulin. There is no cure, but management through diet and exercise can keep things in check. Low carbohydrate and high fat (LCHF) diets are also getting some great results at turning the tables on diabetes.
The United States has more than 8 million people with undiagnosed diabetes according to the American Diabetes Association. Get a checkup with your doctor, and start implementing dietary and lifestyle changes—don’t leave it until it’s too late.
