Shape Up or Ship Out

May 22nd, 2008

If you are rapidly growing old, gaining excess weight and having a sedentary lifestyle and zero physical activity, be wary. They are the risk factors that increase the chances of someone developing diabetes. I must admit that I am one that should be wary and alaramed about it. All these risk factors are staring back at me everytime I look in the mirror.

The last time I was checked up by a Doctor, I got a clean bill of health. I was far from being afflicted with diabetes. But then that was long ago and far away. That was the time when I can still climb mountains and cross provinces via its mountain ranges. Now climbing just three flights up the stairs is not without buckling knees and a bucketful of sweat.

Diabetes has become a silent yet deadly killer. Luckily, there are now a lot of medicines that one can buy over the counter or even through an online Pharmacy. There are even ways that one can determine or detect the chance of having diabetes, like a blood glucose test strips.

But then again the best way to prevent diabetes is not the medicines, fancy meters nor the doctors, it is still that of taking care of yourself. Nothing beats being fit and trim and maintaining healthy habits and lifestyle. Changing a decadent lifestyle may be hard, but think about how it’s like to be being amputated. Which is harder for you?
