Tackling Diabetes

As you may know, since 1991, the rate of diabetes has increased dramatically. This past November 14, was World Diabetes Day and recognized worldwide in more than 160 countries. We can thank the International Diabetes Foundation and the World Health Organization for recognizing that disease. The date was chosen because it honored the birthday of Sir Frederick Banting, who was recognized as one of the researchers involved in the development of insulin.

According to the American Diabetes Association, consider some tips that may help in the prevention from this awful disease: 1] Exercise is recommended because it can help with weight regulation, help lower blood sugar, which boosts sensitivity to insulin. Remember insulin helps keep blood sugar within a safe range. If you don’t currently exercise, make sure you walk for at least 30 minutes per day, reduce your sitting and increase your standing daily. 2] Fiber helps boost blood sugar control, lowers risk of heart disease and helps an individual lose weight. Good fiber sources include fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Check out the food pyramid and adjust accordingly. 3] If you’re overweight, make sure to reduce your weight since every pound you lose can improve your health. Paying attention to your BMI is a useful tool as far as waist circumference. 4] Choose nutritious foods and pay attention to your food portions.

As you can see, exercise and nutrition are important variables for good health. And we all know how difficult it is to exercise and eat properly. If you know what to do, but are not doing it effectively, consider talking to a professional, i.e. therapist, nutritionist, or joining a gym. Another idea is to find that App device, if so inclined.

There’s no harm in starting before the Christmas holidays. If you’re too busy, that’s a poor rationalization for your health. What kind of future do you expect, if you are not taking care of you? Continue to keep moving, laughing, smiling, bonding, loving and appreciating along the way.


Congratulations Tony on your 17 minute improvement from last year’s 50 K in Washington State. This means 2015 is going to be good for you.
