Your Health: How to prevent Type 2 Diabetes

When we think of diabetes, Type 2 diabetes likely comes to mind. It’s the most common form of diabetes and, unlike Type 1, it’s preventable through simple lifestyle changes. However, Type 2 diabetes is still a dangerous condition that disrupts your body’s ability to manage blood sugar levels, which can lead to long-term complications like kidney and nerve damage, heart disease, and Alzheimer’s.

Understanding your personal risk factors and preventive opportunities is the first step toward reducing your risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.
