Sleep Well

A night’s sleep is as essential as food or exercise for proper health. Recent studies have shown that adults who sleep for 7-8 hours every night experience lesser chances of getting diabetes in the long run than those who sleep less. The science behind it says that sleep keeps the brain clam and facilitates the normal hormone secretion in the body whereas lack of sleep can disturb the normal hormonal balance.

Drink More Water

Water helps to mobilize high sugar content in blood and prevents aggravation. Consuming 2-2.5 litres of water in a day not only helps in regulating the physical functions but also lowers the chances of cardiovascular and diabetic problems.

Include High Protein diet

People with risks of diabetes are recommended to avoid diets with complex carbohydrates and high fat. Instead, including a diet which is highly rich in protein would help in maintaining energy levels of the body. It also helps in normalizing the wear and tear of the body by maintaining a high metabolic rate.


A fiber- rich diet is highly conducive in controlling blood-sugar levels. The fiber has the ability to absorb sugar in the blood and facilitate insulin secretion to normalise diabetes. Including whole wheat and multi grains in diet will help you load up the body with fiber.

Quit Smoking

Smoking affects cardiovascular health and hormonal secretions increasing the chances of developing diabetes. Excessive deposition of Carbon in the blood can result in inhibited absorption of assimilated nutrients. Quitting smoking will therefore, boost your health and keep you away from diabetes
