Diabetes Alert Day!

Hi All,

The question of the day, and really of the month, is “Are you at risk?”  Take the Diabetes Risk Test at the below link to see if you possess risk factors of type 2 diabetes.  Risk factors may include, but are not limited to, your family background and your age.  The test is free and it is super easy.  Also, Boar’s Head Brand will donate $5 to the American Diabetes Association for every person who takes the Diabetes Risk Test March 25th through April 25th. http://www.diabetes.org/risktest

Go Go Go!

Exercise for Health

I pulled this excerpt from the American Diabetes Association website.  The page is about prediabetes and the prevention of Type 2 diabetes (the most common form of diabetes.)  It is amazing the difference 30 minutes of exercise a day can make!  With this information at hand, think of all the other health issues which can be resolved by forming healthy eating habits and exercising.

“Research shows that you can lower your risk for type 2 diabetes by 58% by:

  • Losing 7% of your body weight (or 15 pounds if you weigh 200 pounds)
  • Exercising moderately (such as brisk walking) 30 minutes a day, five days a week

Don’t worry if you can’t get to your ideal body weight. Losing even 10 to 15 pounds can make a huge difference.”  (http://www.diabetes.org/diabetes-basics/prevention/pre-diabetes/?loc=DropDownDB-prediabetes)
