If you’ve been paying any attention to the press and media recently, then you might be slightly unnerved by the rise of diabetes and the fact that it threatens to bankrupt the NHS, in the words of The Guardian. If you’re aged over thirty and carry a little excess weight though, don’t despair just yet!
More than one million adults have been diagnosed with the disease in the last 10 years and this brings the total of sufferers throughout the UK to 3,333,069. Cases in England and Wales have risen by 59.8 per cent since 2005 and that equates to an additional 1.2 million adults living with the condition, compared to 10 years ago.
But what’s causing this problem? Excessive weight has been found to be a major contributor and time and time again it has been demonstrated that a new approach to diet and exercise can in fact protect against, halt and even reverse the progression of Type 2 Diabetes, minimising the need for the administration of insulin. However, the condition will never disappear altogether.
If you’re overweight and even if you have already been diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes, now’s the time to talk to Mark Lole who can help you reach a healthy weight and to maintain a lifestyle of moderate exercise and healthy eating. What are you waiting for? Get in touch now for a chat!
