Not a single day passes by without a sound word of advice from nutritionists/dietitians on safeguarding heart health by following a healthy lifestyle, eating nutritious foods and doing exercise and their efforts are not wasted as a new study shows that those health policies and measures that do good for your heart are good for reducing the risk of diabetes too. Isn’t this happy news that following the same guidelines helps us stay away from not one but two of the frequent and debilitating diseases that affect mankind?
Diabetes can affect blood vessels (including those in the heart) and this can lead to a heart attack or stroke. This shows that there is nothing to be shocked when people with diabetes end up with a heart attack or stroke.
The Precious Seven
The American Heart Association puts down some of the most-important tips that help each of us safeguard our hearts and these include:
Getting a health checkup done at the physician’s place to monitor blood sugar, blood pressure and cholesterol levels is indispensable as these levels indicate whether a lifestyle change is all that is needed to correct the numbers (if needed) or there is a demand for introducing medications to serve the individual’s purpose. Rather than meeting a physician when some health problem arises isn’t it helpful to get a check on these levels occasionally to get an idea of your existing health condition? Healthy or unhealthy, diseased or diseases-free, busy or free, youngster or an aged person-whatever might be your background, abiding by the seven guidelines can surely help you move towards positivity, better health and a better mind.
AVOID FRAUD. EAT SMART.
