Diabetes runs in both sides of my family, especially my mother's. My grandmother and all of her 7 siblings were diabetic. I'm just wondering if anyone has any suggestions as to how I could avoid setting off my gene? Cutting back (or off) sweets is a given, but any other suggestions?
Hi... Diabetes do run in the family.. Since you have a strong family history you needto take all the necessary precautions which apply to a diagnosed diabetes patient.. You need to abide to a strict diet, a diet which is low in carbohydrate and low in fat.. Follow up with regular weight reducing exercises... Check your blood sugars regularly and frequently. Consult a doctor if the sugars are high..
