Heart Health Guidelines May Reduce Diabetes Risk by 80 Percent

In fact, recent research reinforces the guidelines set by the American Heart Association and found that weight maintenance can reduce your type 2 diabetes risk by up to 80 percent. The organization recommends controlling total cholesterol (less than 200 mg/dL), managing blood pressure (less than 120/80 mmHg), reducing blood sugar, eating a healthy diet full of fruits and veggies, quitting smoking, getting in regular exercise and having a body mass index of less than 25 to help prevent heart disease and diabetes.
