If you’re at risk for diabetes but don’t have the disease yet, you need to drop everything. Avoiding this killer should now be your number one health goal.
Far too many folks don’t take the diabetes threat seriously. And then they end up regretting it for the rest of their lives.
Think of yourself as dangling off the ledge of a skyscraper.
You could plunge into a lifetime of diabetes complications ranging from kidney damage to amputations. Or you can heave yourself back onto the roof and save your life.
Yes, it really is THAT serious. In 2019 alone, 1.5 million deaths were directly caused by diabetes.
But new research offers a literal lifeline. A way to drag yourself away from the diabetes ledge to save your life. And all you have to do is keep one eye on the clock.
The STAND-UP cure for prediabetes
Diabetes is so much more than a single disease. It’s a domino condition that causes nearly everything else to fall apart, with one complication following another.
Diabetes can lead to:
- heart disease
- nerve pain
- foot damage
- vision loss
- kidney damage
- Alzheimer’s disease
… and more. Plus, of course, having diabetes typically means a long-term commitment to painful blood sugar checks and sickening meds.
But the new study also shows a way to put that all in the rear-view mirror. And it has to do with your rear end.
You see, the more you sit, the more your metabolism slows. And a dragging metabolism leads to weight gain, more difficulty controlling blood sugar, and prediabetes.
The new study confirms that every hour per day spent sedentary sends your risk of both diabetes and heart disease soaring.
But incredibly, the “cure” is to keep one eye on the clock and make a move every half an hour. Because, according to researchers, if you stand and move around every 30 minutes, something amazing happens.
You can reverse that diabetes and heart risk.
You don’t have to do much, either. Maybe walk around the room in a circle… hike up and down your stairs… or do some stretching. The idea is to do anything that gets you out of your seat and moving around for a bit.
Dodge diabetes with this move
In the new study, sedentary obese volunteers at risk for diabetes were given little gadgets to wear. The devices gave the participants a reminder to move every 30 minutes during their waking hours.
They didn’t have to do anything strenuous. In fact, the volunteers were asked to put in just three minutes of low to moderate activity each time.
Over three weeks, the movers had some pretty significant improvements when compared to a control group that didn’t get that activity, including:
- lower fasting glucose levels than the control group
- fewer blood sugar spikes and drops (less variability)
- improvements in LDL “bad” cholesterol
In other words, they were headed in the right direction again—away from diabetes and its complications—with minimal effort. Simply not sitting around as much, and making moves they could do without even losing sight of the TV, did the trick.
But if you want to practically guarantee to send your diabetes risk packing, don’t stop there. Move even more each day, such as taking a brisk walk around the neighborhood.
And start eating a bit better too. Give up the ultra-processed foods, reduce your junk carbohydrates, and switch to meals built around some Mediterranean diet basics.
Make those minimal moves, and in a matter of weeks, nearly all of your numbers will be back under control. And your diabetes risk will practically disappear.
