Five Interesting Facts About Diabetes
Fact #1: In the Diabetes Prevention Program, a large prevention study of people with diabetes risk factors, changes in lifestyle reduced the likelihood of participants developing diabetes by 58 percent over three years. And for participants who were aged 60 years or older, the reduction was even greater—71 percent.
Fact #2: A review of 37 studies involving 40,129 patients revealed that a low-glycemic diet reduces diabetes risk factors and makes it less likely to get the disease.
Fact #3: Chinese and U.S. researchers teamed up to evaluate the dietary habits of more than 64,000 healthy, middle-aged Chinese women. After four and a half years, they discovered that the women who ate the most legumes had a 38 percent lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes. And those who regularly ate soybeans slashed their risk almost in half!
Fact #4: In a British study involving 1,122 men and women, fiber-rich vegetables were shown to be protective against diabetes risk factors and against developing the disease. Those who regularly ate salad and raw vegetables had an 80 percent lower risk of type 2 diabetes than people who ate vegetables less often.
Fact #5: Austrian researchers found that walking downhill lowers and helps control blood sugar levels more effectively than walking uphill, while walking uphill is better at lowering cholesterol and triglycerides.
