I believe that you are either born with it or you get diabetes later in life.
For the people born with diabetes there is really no way to avoid it. But, for the people who are not born with diabetes I am under the impression that poor diet, especially a high sugar diet, leads to diabetes. I find the fact that more children are being diagnosed with adult on set diabetes disturbing….it means to me that this kid has been allowed to eat soo much sugar already that its body chemistry is already messed up. Very sad.
For people who have diabetes it is very important to keep a strict diet and work out! Working out doesn’t mean lifting more food to your mouth either!
I have written an article on how to avoid diabetes a months back. Here is the link.
diabetes is now one of the commonest disease among all age group. Its is divided in two category type1 and type2.
Yes, here are some simple ways to allow you to avoid or delay this disease.
1. Eat healthy and wisely.
2.Limit your meat, poultry, and fish intake to no more than three ounces a day.
3.Skip desserts and refined sugars.
4.Use low-salt broth instead of oil and butter.
5.Drinking a full glass of water before eating will also help reduce your appetite.
6.If you are eating at a fast-food restaurant, choose the healthier foods, such as grilled chicken, salads and fruits.
7.Increase your exercise.
basically controle your temptation for bad food.
OK sugar does NOT cause diabetes.Diabetes is caused by poor diet, fast foods, processed foods, like white sugar and white flour,eating more than you need to eat which causes obesity and obesity is one major factor and lack of adequate excercise is another. Your Genes play a major role too when it comes to whether you will develope the condition.
Carbohydrates, which are starchy foods like potatos, rice, cereals,pasta, or fruit and other sweets and milk products,all convert to glucose(suager) when digested So although our bodies need the carbohydrates eating larger portions sizes that we need can over load our systems with glucose.
Change your lifestyle from the ground up. Change what you eat and exercise more, walking is the best. Eat less sticky carbs like breads and pastas and eat more fiberous carbs like veggies with a protein.
Diet control is very important for avoiding diabetes. We need to take amount of food that actually required by our body. It is desirable to add wheat, maize with rice in our food habit. Taking adequate quantity of vegetables, particulary fiber rich, will be very helpful to avoid diabetes. Taking too much sweets should be avoided. We need to walk daily for at least 30 minutes as walking is the best exercise for everybody. Early morning walking is preferrable. Doing other exercises and yogas are also responsible for avoiding diabetes.
A very simple step towards avoiding diabetes is by eliminating caffeine from your diet. Medical research has shown that caffeine decreases insulin sensitivity by around 15% in people without diabetes. The researchers estimated that the decreased insulin sensitivity caused by the caffeine matched the increase in insulin sensitivity from taking insulin-sensitising drugs like metformin. Therefore people who are on these medications might not need it if they eliminated caffeine from their diet.
Any one who is overweight or has a family member with diabetes needs to take some action.
Caffeine is predominately found in: coffee, tea, coke and energy drinks etc. chocolate and chocolate ice cream. Follow a low GI or GL diet.
It all depends on which type you have. It is not good say it is only people with bad diet and dont exercise yes they maybe more likely to get type 2. Where mean that have type 1 it just runs in the family I got type 1 while in the army running everyday eating health meals so in no way was it my own fault. Also what about the mothers that get diabeties while pregnant where the way for then to not have developed it would have been to avoid getting pregnant
This is a basic hub explaining the importance of keeping yourself fit and healthy to help prevent the development of diabetes. Hormones and obesity play a strong role in Diabetes Type II. Any additional information, and any comments are welcome and encouraged. read more
I know that being overweight is correlated with getting diabetes so to eat right and exercise can help reduce chances of getting diabetes. Also I believe it can be genetic but am not completely sure about that part.
Genetics as well as bad eating habits, obesity, etc., can lead to diabetes. This is a serious disease that is hard to for lots of diabetics to control. Changing old eating habits is difficult and requires determination and will power.
Sometimes I think that if i knew back when I was young that when I was in my thirties I would develop this disease, I might have changed the way I was eating and postponed or maybe even prevented this disease from taking it's toll on me.
Eating a healthy diet that is high in fiber and low in fat is the best defense against this disease. Make sure to eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables and to drink at least six 8 oz. glasses of water a day, and limit your intake on rich sugary desserts, starchy foods, and red meats. Chicken and fish are better protein choices because they are usually lower in fat content than other meats. Also avoid eating fried foods.
Regular exercise to keep fit and trim is also recommended, as well as adequate rest.
Best advise is to take care of yourself and to remember that food is fuel for your body and it's best to put in the good stuff! ;o)
I have to agree with most of the answers provided. There is diabetes on both sides of my family tree, along with glaucoma. I did not dodge the glaucoma but I have, so far, avoided the predilection for diabetes. Staying in decent shape, watching what you eat, and keeping up with the health news should do it, if anything will. The 'girl next door' when I was growing up was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes when she was 5. That shows that Temuj. (Genghis) answer has a point about heredity. However, all her life she paid strict attention to what she eats and stays in shape. At 45, she is as healthy as is possible. So, even if you have it, diet and excersize are key.
A similar childhood buddy came from a family with a history of diabetes. Besides being a party guy, his diet is poor, based mainly on take out stuff. There is nothing wrong with a treat every now and again, but to base your diet on that stuff is not a good idea. Not only did he become diabetic to the point of requiring insulin, he has lost toes and fingers to the disease.
As with all the solid answers, being in shape and watching your diet is crucial. Now, you don't have to be a hybrid of Lance Armstrong, Yuhl Gibbons, and who Richard Simmons pretends to be. Just walk everyday and keep adding to the list of active things you do, and keep an eye on what you eat and drink. I am 46 and get checked regularly. So far, diabetes is a concern, not a reality. I hope this helps. If anything, it sure demonstrates that the other answers are pretty good advice. Good Luck!
Weight control is the best way to avoid diabetes, especially the adult onset kind - NIDDM (None Insulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus). This is usually triggered by obesity.
As a raw food activist and someone that believes that disease is caused by an inbalance in our body's pH (usually being too acidic), I was very excited to see the results of 6 Diabetics who followed a completely raw diet for 30 days. Every single one of them cured themselves of diabetes. Many people will unfortunately discount this but even the medical professionals who were treating these individuals were inspired by the results.
The DVD I watched was - "Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes in 30 Days".
Time and time again studies are showing how the toxic, processed, foods that the majority of the western world eat is making our bodies sick.
I really hope that more scientific studies on healthy foods that are raw and alkalizing are conducted on adults and children that are:
suffering from mental health problems
...and children who have behavioural problems
As far too many medical problems that we have in society are linked to the way we process our foods and the lack of essential nutrients that we should be getting from living foods.
So really, to avoid diabetes you need to eliminate sugars and processed foods from your diet. If you can't eliminate these foods altogether then at least eating a diet full of raw and alkalizing foods 75% of the time will do a lot of good for your body and still give you a great chance of preventing diabetes and other diseases.
Tip: drink 1 litre of alkalizing water for every 30lbs of your body weight to energize all the cells in your body and flush out toxins that contribute to ill health.

Not all diabetes can be avoided. It would depend on which type you have. Thankfully, we have medications which will control and even cure some types of this problem. Healthy living will avoid and even control other types. Eat healthy foods from the food groups put out by the FDA. Limit the amount you eat at each meal. Fill your plate once not twice. In between meals snack on veggie's, fresh fruits and some healthy nuts. Get at least 30 minutes of brisk walking or other fast paced activity everyday. Drink at least 8 glasses of water every day. Try to keep your stress under control. Laughing is always good for you. If your over weight try to lose 2 pounds a week. If your older, you may have to work harder at it, but don't give up! Good Luck!
