Return to my Blog with Diabetes Article

Hallo all, I am glad I can write again on my blog. I have left it for many months because I had pretty much activities outdoor. By the way, I am interested in posting about diabetes since my mother suffers this illness. But the most interesting diabetes article for me is about what things cause someone suffer it faster than others.

How to Give Yourself Diabetes

Although researchers don’t know exactly what causes diabetes, it affects 21 million people in the U.S. and continues to “spread.” The American Diabetes Association explains that in diabetes, the body doesn’t produce or properly use insulin. (Insulin converts starches and sugars into our body’s fuel.)

Here’s few things that can put you on the fast track to diabetes.

  • Watch two or more hours of TV daily. Increased risk: 14%
  • Have one bout of major depression. Increased risk: 23%
  • Eat lots of processed meat. Increased risk: 43%
  • Skip breakfast every morning. Increased risk: up to 50%
  • Drinking one soda every day. Increased risk: 83%
  • Wake up at night and don’t return to sleep. Increased risk: 98%
  • Eat fast food more than twice a week. Increased risk: 100%
  • Have the majority of your extra body mass (fat) around your waist instead of evenly distributed. Increased risk: a whopping 330%
We say it a lot around here, but it bears repeating: Eat healthy and exercise to help avoid all of the above.


Notes: It sounds terrible. Watching TV and skipping breakfast can cause diabetes!! Is it true? Unfortunately, the writer does not give the credible sources of what he has written.
