Getting too little or too much sleep also can increase your appetite and cravings for opting high-carb foods. This increases the weight, and also creates risky complications such as heart attack. So, try to sleep 7-8 hours at night.
Try to include exercises in your daily routine at least 30 minutes per day because it can aid you to lower your cardiovascular risks, blood pressure levels, cholesterol and keep your body weight in control, and relieve stress.
Check the blood glucose levels daily as it can help you avoid diabetes complications and helps you to analyze yourself how foods and activities affect you. A doctor can set a target to keep your glucose level on track.
For patients with diabetes, there are possibilities of increase in blood glucose levels. It is better to get rid of physical or mental stress. Including relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation and breathing exercises is highly effective for type 2 diabetes.
Reducing salty foods can lower blood pressure and protect the kidneys. Season it with herbs and spices instead of salt while cooking. Adults aged 50 and above, should talk to their doctor about how much to reduce their sodium intake.
