Hello Healthizens,

The main goal of World Health Day 2016 - is increasing awareness about the most widely spreading disease - " Diabetes "
It is not just dependant on - heredity but also majorly on the lifestyle.  
Given below are a few pointers given by the World Health Organisation. 


Title - Stay Super, Beat Diabetes


1) Halt the rise 

More and more people are getting diabetes all over the world.
The increase in sugar levels in major part if driven by Obesity, constantly increasing weight, lack of physical activity (even among children). Avoiding these cases can help in reducing the levels of blood sugar in normal cases. And managing blood glucose levels in range can help greatly to people who are already suffering from it!


2) Eat Healthy Beat Diabetes




A healthy diet - high in fruits and vegetables, low in direct sugar, rich in complex carbohydrates and rich in good quality fats and proteins - helps in maintaining blood sugar levels if you already have Diabetes and also helps in staying away from Diabetes.


3) Be Active Beat Diabetes



Being physically active always matters and always helps!

30 minutes of regular moderate intensity physical activity on at least 4 days a week - can help prevent Type 2 Diabetes. For those who already have Diabetes this level of physical activity helps to maintain their blood sugar levels to the optimum.

4) If in Doubt - Check 



Symptoms of Diabetes include 
a) Thirst
b) Hunger
c) Weight loss
d) fatigue
&
e) Blurred vision
However many people who have diabetes donot have these symptoms.
If you are facing any one or multiple of these symptoms - consulting a health care practitioner is always advised.

5) Follow Medical advise


There is a wide range of treatments to manage diabetes and control blood glucose. 
These are
a) Eating Healthy foods
b) Being active
c) Taking prescribed medication (And not taking over or under medication)
d) Control blood pressure (by lowering the salt intake)
