As we reported yesterday, the number of people in the U.S. with pre-diabetes is now thought be 79 million. Many are PCOS women because reversible pre-diabetes is closely linked with polycystic ovarian syndrome.
If you’re a woman with both conditions, you can increase your chances of avoiding the slide into even more serious type 2 diabetes and improve your PCOS symptoms at the same time by relatively small, healthy changes in lifestyle.
Besides improving your diet as described yesterday, regular exercise to lose weight is a major 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 the type 2 variety by almost 60%. That works out at half-an-hour of exercise 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.
Type 2 diabetes is irreversible in most cases and often requires daily insulin injections to be managed. The disorder is a severely increased risk factor for blindness, kidney disease and the need for amputation.
