Avoiding the Slide into Type 2 Diabetes Part 2

As we explained yesterday, women with PCOS are particularly vulnerable to the onset of reversible pre-diabetes, which, if neglected, can lead to type 2 diabetes. This latter disorder is irreversible in most cases and may require insulin injections to be managed. It also severely increases the risk of developing numerous serious disorders, ranging from heart disease and blindess to kidney disease and the need for amputation.
Fortunately, you can increase your chances of avoiding the slide into type 2 diabetes by relatively small changes in lifestyle.
In addition to a healthy diet to control blood sugar levels, regular exercise to lose or better control weight is a foundational element of any type 2 prevention plan. Researchers found that when people with pre-diabetes engaged in at least 150 minutes of moderate exercise a week they reduced their risk of developing the type 2 variety by almost 60%. That works out at half-an-hour a day, five days a week.
If you hate jogging, don’t do it. Any activity you dread won’t motivate you. So pick an exercise you enjoy, like walking, cycling, swimming, dancing or even gardening. As long as the activity gets your heart pumping, any form of movement is beneficial to your health.
