The Connection Between Diabetes And Obesity

By Sue Kennedy

How diabetes and obesity are connected is found in the foods that are readily available to consumers. The foods of today include more kilojoules which people are eating and so this is how obesity is achieved, which is known as excessive fat. Diabetes comes with different types of this disease, however, obesity is mainly connected to type 2 diabetes.

Unfortunately, this disease called diabetes is an epidemic that spreads throughout the world which effects around 246 million people, and by 2025 there will be over 300 million people with diabetes. Diabetes can cause kidney failure, heart disease, blindness and possible amputation of limbs, diabetes is a killer and we need to take control and manage this disease.

Studies have shown that the types of food that are consumed are connected to obesity which can and will develop into type 2 diabetes.

Sadly, people with diabetes is increasing at a rapid rate. In Australia and New Zealand, one in four adults have diabetes or are pre diabetic. People need to know the risks and how they can avoid them because every day over 300 people, including children are diagnosed with this deadly disease.

We need to get the message across to everyone that diabetes and obesity are connected and the only way to avoid this is to have a healthy lifestyle which includes exercise and a nutritious diet. It is important to monitor your blood glucose levels as well as your cholesterol.

The type of foods that you eat is all about your behaviour towards them, by introducing and maintaining a good behaviour towards your food, as well as a nutritious diet and exercise you will be able to control your weight. Below are a few guidelines that will help you.

* Set yourself some realistic goals for losing weight
