Individuals can reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes through adopting healthy lifestyle behaviors including participating in regular physical activity, maintaining a healthy body weight and consuming a nutritious diet.
As promoted by the American College of Sports medicine, “Exercise is Medicine.” Participation in regular physical activity has many benefits including reducing the risk of developing chronic health problems such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, heart disease, and certain cancers.
