Why is a healthy lifestyle so important for me?

A healthy lifestyle reduces your risk of developing diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

A Finnish diabetes prevention study showed that people who improved their lifestyle, compared to those with a poor lifestyle, were 58% less likely to develop diabetes over the following 3.2 years.

People are less likely to develop diabetes when they:

  1. Exercise regularly

  2. Lower their body weight

  3. Increase their dietary fibre intake

  4. Reduce the amount of fats in their diet
