Reduce your Diabetes Risk

Friday, May 28th, 2010

Hi All,

I have just been Reading over a piece if research by the Diabetes Prevention Program Research Group. This is yet another paper that shows us how important diet and physical activity actually are.

The study followed 3000 overweight people, they were split into three groups. One following a healthy diet and exercise, another taking anti-diabetic drugs, the other taking a placebo.

The research showed that the group following a diet and exercise program gained the greatest benefits in terms of reduced risk of diabetes. The actual risk of developing type 2 diabetes was reduced by 58% compared to the placebo group. While the anti-diabetic group saw their risk reduce by a third.

This is yet another study that shows the power of healthy eating and physical activity.

Until next time,
