Diabetes Causes And What You Can Do About Them

Doctors used to think that diabetes was something you either got or you didn’t. Prevention was believed to be impossible. Over time, though, doctors started to notice a trend in who was developing this disease and their genetic and personality traits. Today, we are more informed on diabetes and its causes. Some causes are even things you can control. The following is some of the causes of diabetes and how you can or can’t control them.

Gender isn’t something you can actually take control of (unless it’s a superficial case), though it can also be one of the root causes of Type 1 and 2 Diabetes. Men are more likely to contract diabetes than women are. Unfortunately you can’t really do anything about this. If you are a man, though, you should be more alert for indications of the disease and should be paying attention to the parts of your life that could allow the disease to appear in your body. Be careful! By all means, women you also need to be observant (but maybe not quite as much as men).

Genetics can be a major factor when we talk about Type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes or non-insulin dependent diabetes can come about for a variety of reasons, although genetics is seemingly the most important factor. If you have ancestors that were diabetics, the chances of you ending up with the disease are more likely than for someone show doesn’t have ancestors that were diabetic. If your parents or grandparents had to deal with adult onset diabetes, be cautious! Watch your diet and other environmental factors that can contribute to the disease. You might be unable to completely restrain it but you can definitely fight against it.

Are a lot of the foods you consume, high in fat? Stop that! Diets that consist of a high fat content are a big cause for diabetes. This is one of the many reasons your physician will direct you to eliminate the fatty food in your diet.

No matter what, fatty food is horrible for you. It can increase your chances of weight gain, high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels and now we’re aware it also causes diabetes. Snacking from time to time won’t make the disease happen. Regularly eating poor meals, on the other hand, could spell the difference between being healthy and being a diabetic.

Diabetes is said to be one of the few diseases we have complete control over now. 20 years ago we knew far less about diabetes causes and how to treat them than we do today. We are now much more able to identify those factors that make us more likely to develop diabetes. Fortunately there are now many more treatments available for treating it if you do end up with it. You can now access a full gamet of information about diabetes that was once not so readily available because we just didn’t know enough about it. Diabetes is preventable if you pay attentions to the signs. Before you go, don’t forget to check out this article on the Ninja Blender.
