Diabetes risk lowered by walking.

Guest Author - Hellie T.

Walking is as effective as medicines when treating diabetes or when there is a risk you might develop it.

It is a proven fact that being obese or seriously overweight puts your health at risk.
Walking can improve your health.

If you are overweight there is a increased chance that you will develop diabetes amongst the other health issues, such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol levels.

Recent studies have shown that walking can help people who already have diabetes and can also help those who are at risk whether they are obese or not.

So knowing this you should build walking into your everyday life.
If you are very overweight then start by taking several short walks each day rather than one longer one. Check out Step One which will help you get started on standing activities.

Dr Frank Hu from the Harvard School of Public Health who is a diabetes specialist believes that walking is an important part of treating diabetes.

“Walking is as effective as medicines – probably more effective, because walking has no side effects”.

Find out how to set off when walking and remember that your walking does not have to be incredibly strenuous, you simply need to build up to walking briskly.

Walking half an hour for five days of the week means you can lower the risk of developing diabetes and lose weight at the same time, which of course is another benefit.

So browse the walking site and let walking help you. Read on and discover how walking can help you and your health.

Remember you need to consult your doctor or health professional if you are very overweight or over 50 before you start a walking plan.

Enjoy your walking.
