Aim for a healthy weight
When you have extra weight, this can cause an increase in blood sugar. Maintaining a healthy weight can keep your blood sugar at more normal levels and better overall health. Keeping your BMI between 18.5 – 24.9 is optimal.
Exercise is very important when it comes to managing or preventing type 2 diabetes. Regular exercise can help lower weight, stress levels, blood pressure, bad cholesterol and triglycerides. Even just adding walks into your day can make a difference. Aim for 30 minutes of aerobic exercise at least four times a week.
