Tips to prevent Type 2 Diabetes

The American Diabetes Association is on a mission to put an end to the disease.

Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of the disease. It is a chronic condition that affects the way the body uses glucose, which is the body's main source of fuel.

As obesity levels have risen in the US, the rates of type 2 diabetes have risen as well.

However, the condition can often be prevented by maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Experts say you can start by eating healthy foods including plenty of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.

These foods are high in fiber which helps control blood sugar levels.

Experts also recommend at least 30 minutes of exercise a day to lower your risk.
