Diabetes - Are You at Risk? Diet Company HMR Shares Top Strategy to Prevent or Delay Diabetes
Date:10/30/2008

Many people may not be aware that lifestyle choices, specifically excess body weight or physical inactivity, puts them at a much greater risk for diabetes. The good news is that there are simple things you can start doing right away to reduce your risk of getting diabetes.

Boston (PRWEB) October 30, 2008 -- Diabetes has become a top health concern in the U.S., ranking as the sixth leading cause of death, with 125,000 new cases diagnosed every 30 days. Although there are some genetic factors over which you have no control that could put you at increased risk (such as a family history of type 2 diabetes or high cholesterol), there are other risk factors that you can control, which could lower your risk substantially.

In fact, losing weight through a healthy diet may be the single most important thing you can do to reduce your risk. For simple weight-loss strategies you can use right away, go to http://www.hmrprogram.com/index.cfm/Research/ProvenStrategiesforWeightLoss.

Many people may not be aware that their lifestyle choices, specifically physical inactivity, and/or excess body weight, puts them at a much greater risk for diabetes. This risk starts to escalate sooner than you might think, considering that a person is considered "overweight" when their BMI (body mass index, a ratio of height to weight) is 25 or above. (A woman who is 5' 4" and weighs 145 pounds or more, or a man who is 5'8" and weighs 164 pounds or more, is considered overweight.)

The good news is that there are things that you can do to reduce your risk of getting diabetes. "It may be easier than you think to avoid diabetes entirely," says Anita M. Kinne R.N., Director of Nursing for Health Management Resources® (HMR), the nation's leading provider of medically supervised weight- loss programs.

She adds that "All of the research on diabetes and pre-diabetes in the last several years has come to the same conclusion -- engaging in healthier lifestyle behaviors, for example losing weight, becoming physically active, and eating a low-fat, and high fiber diet are the most effective ways to prevent and/or delay diabetes." She notes that "Losing weight and eating healthier may be the single most important thing you can do to reduce your risk." Plus, it will be more cost effective in the long run in terms of avoiding medications needed to treat the disease.

Over the past 25 years, HMR has helped over a million dieters lose weight through a healthy and sound diet plan which includes sensible lifestyle education and a nutritionally complete low-fat diet.
