Diabetic Living - - LIVING WELL -

Re­search shows that los­ing weight, even just 4-10 kilo­grams, can ac­com­plish near-mirac­u­lous health ben­e­fits: lower blood glu­cose (also known as blood sugar) lev­els, re­duced blood pres­sure, im­proved choles­terol, in­creased en­ergy, im­proved sleep qual­ity (and de­crease in sleep ap­noea), de­creased pres­sure on joints, and even de­creased risk of cer­tain can­cers, such as breast and colon can­cer. To con­tinue to en­joy these health ben­e­fits, it’s im­por­tant to main­tain as much of your weight loss as pos­si­ble.
