Humans’ life styles, food habits or ignorance cause many diseases. Some diseases are said to be hereditary too. There are some diseases threatening the world such as Swine flu, Bird’s flu, Anthrax, Chikungunya etc. These diseases fall on the category epidemics and they are out of our control. Likewise, these days Diabetes has become threatening diseases to the world. It is a dangerous diseases and which catches from small kids to elderly person and kills them slowly.

Take a romantic walk in the park, beach or around the town regularly and do some physical activities for few minutes. Normally we can see some people with diabetes feel sad, angry, confused, upset, alone, embarrassed and even jealous. It is common to think things like. If you can take good care of yourself and manage your diabetes, most probably you will get sick less often, need fewer tests and be able to do the same activities as others. If can participate and feel well enough to get exercise you will feel better too.

Many people suffering from diabetes get sick of dealing with it. Some people who have learned to manage their illness feel so healthy and strong as they keep following their diabetes management plan. Skipping medicines, changing the meal plan or not regular checking of blood sugar can have disastrous result if you have diabetes.

If we pay attention to our food we can prevent this disease. Prevention is better than cure. This world would be pleasant if we could free ourselves from this silent killer disease.
