Diabetes – one of the most common diseases on the planet right now and one we’re still trying to discover.
As I’m writing this post, more than 10% of our country’s population has been diagnosed with type 1 or type 2 diabetes. Sadly, another estimated 7.3 million people might already be dealing with this condition without knowing.
Some of the most common risk factors for diabetes are:
- Being overweight / obese
- Sedentary lifestyle
- Age (people over 50 are more prone to type 2 diabetes)
- High blood pressure
- Smoking and/or drinking alcohol
I know I fall into some of those categories; if you’re in the same boat, the best thing we can do is learn how to protect ourselves from complications.
Today, we’ll have a look at 11 of the most dangerous foods and drinks for diabetics and people at risk for this illness. Ready?
