Lower Type 2 Diabetes Risk by Eating the Right Food

Just recently, a study by the Harvard University suggests that brown rice can lower the risk for type 2 diabetes. Compared to the 17% increases risk for type 2 diabetes with people eating five or more servings of white rice, those who eat brown rice in a regular basis were overall less likely to develop the disease. A very huge difference. In fact, even if eating brown rice is subbed with a few servings of white rice a week, there’s still a significant decrease of developing type 2 diabetes by 16%.

On the other hand, other experts think that the lowered type 2 diabetes risk was not all because of brown rice, but also of eating other healthy food such as fruits, vegetables and whole grains. That’s besides the fact that people who eat brown rice tend to be more health conscious, so they are more physically active, leaner, and less likely to smoke, also the very important things in preventing diseases.

Thinking that brown rice can be a substitute to the known ways of treating diabetes is not suggested by medical experts, although the grain itself can really have a significant effect. Consulting those people in medical uniforms and lab coats first will be necessary. Eating brown rice, along with other food known to lower type 2 diabetes risk, is such an intelligent move. Let’s see what you can prepare in your table.

Ward off diabetes with NUTS as some researches suggest. In a study published by the Journal of Nutrition in 2008, people with diabetes must eat nuts in order to help reduce cardiovascular risk.

Fight diabetes with GREEN LEAFY VEGETABLES. The 2008 Diabetes Care study found that women who ate more green leafy veggies in addition to fruits had a lower risk of developing type 2diabetes.

Lower diabetes risk with FISH. A study published in Diabetes Educator just this month found that diabetic people who consume more fish may have a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, as well as improved cholesterol levels and a lower risk of cardiac death.

Reduce diabetes risk with FAT-FREE MILK and DAIRY PRODUCTS. Reduced risk of type 2 diabetes was seen on men who consume more dairy products, especially those that are low fat, according to the 2005 archives of Internal Medicine study. Other research suggests they may also help ward off insulin resistance, which can lead then lead to type 2 diabetes.
