Diabetes is a hereditary disease that is influenced by genetic factors. But these factorscan be lowered if a person has a healthy lifestyle, because lifestyle has a major role intriggering diabetes.
The researchers found that when a person has a history of diabetes in his family, hecould lower risk of chronic disease if it has a healthy lifestyle, even every healthy lifestylecan lower the risk of doing.
The study found each of unhealthy lifestyles such as weight, smoking, alcohol, exerciselazy and unhealthy eating patterns can affect a person’s risk of diabetes.
“There are certain benefits that can be obtained a person if he did change towards a healthier lifestyle,” says Jared Reis, researchers from the National Heart, Lung, andBlood Institute in Bethesda, Maryland, as quoted by Reuters .
Reis said the results suggest even for people who have a history of diabetes in thefamily, if he adopted a healthier lifestyle then it will have a strong influence in determiningwhether his life would end up with diabetes or not.
In this study, researchers looked at five categories of lifestyle that is the body massindex (BMI, ie the size of the weight that is associated with high), diet, physical activity,smoking and alcohol consumption.
If a woman changes the life style so he could lower the risk of developing diabetes by 84 percent, while for men the risk is reduced by 72 percent.
“These findings could make a person motivated to reduce the risk of diabetes by making healthy lifestyle, because that is what you should do,” said Dr. David Jenkins, anutrition researcher at the University of Toronto.
The study involved data on more than 200,000 Americans who filled out a survey on the status of lifestyle, and the results have been reported in the Annals of Internal Medicine.
