Diabetes is a leading cause of heart attack, stroke, blindness, kidney failure, and amputation. The good news is, type 2 diabetes can be prevented, and it isn’t as hard as you might think. Losing just 7% of your body weight (which translates to 14 pounds if you weigh 200 pounds) and exercising moderately (like brisk walking) 5 days a week can reduce your risk for type 2 diabetes by 58%. Other lifestyle changes also can prevent or delay diabetes complications.
