Keep up the healthy habits to help prevent the disease.
You’re doing just about everything right and the smart choices you’ve made have helped you avoid a disease that contributes to 225,000 U.S. deaths every year.
Keep reining in your risks by monitoring your blood pressure and blood glucose through regular visits to your physician. One of the most important things you’re doing is keeping your weight in check. Regular exercise and a diet that’s low in fat and sugar and high in fiber will help you maintain a healthy weight. Be particularly vigilant about preventive steps if you have a family history of diabetes or a history of gestational diabetes, especially since your risk will increase as you age.
Contact your local primary care physician if you have any questions. If you do not have a primary care physician or if you would like to be referred to a specialist, please call us at XXX-XXX-XXXX.
