If you have a family history of diabetes or are pre-diabetic your risk for diabetes is high but there may be something you can do about that. Start by cutting the sugar out of your diet. Exercise daily do anything to elevate your hear rate. Get outdoors and consider supplementing vitamin D. Cut the soda, cut the alcohol, but don’t let go of the coffee.

    Key Takeaways:

  • Vitamin D deficiency has been associated with increased risk for type 2 diabetes. Early morning exposure to the sun is one way to get a small dose of this extremely important vitamin.
  • Resistance (strength) training and interval workouts helps the body respond better to insulin and use blood sugar more efficiently
  • Cut the soda, cut the alcohol, but don’t let go of the coffee. Soda and alcohol both can wreak havoc on blood sugar levels. Coffee, on the other hand, has been shown to actually decrease the risk for type 2 diabetes.

“Work out vigorously every day. Do something to elevate your heart rate. Even if you only have 10 minutes a day, get your body moving and lifting weight. Resistance (strength) training and interval workouts helps the body respond better to insulin and use blood sugar more efficiently.”
