“Tennis Shoe Trick” Helps Diabetics Live Longer AND Better!
With most diseases, prevention is best. And type 2 diabetes is no exception.
Type 2 diabetics have a higher risk of major health problems—and a shorter life expectancy to go along with it.
Naturally, your best bet is to avoid it altogether. But… what if you’ve already been diagnosed?
Fortunately, researchers have identified a way to lower the risk of premature death in patients with type 2 diabetes.
There’s not much that a good, brisk walk can’t help with—including type 2 diabetes.
For this latest study, researchers tracked the number of steps taken per day by 1700 adults with either prediabetes or diabetes.
Overall, they found that those who took 10,000 steps per day had a lower risk of dying compared to those who walked less.
If that seems daunting, I understand. After all, the average person takes about 3,000-4,000 steps per day – so the thought of tripling that number can be overwhelming. (Especially if you’re already in poor health.)
Other studies have confirmed the benefits of 10,000 steps per day… while some have found reduced mortality at just 7,500 steps.
But don’t get bogged down in the details. You don’t need to track every single step you take. Focus more on the big picture.
Because, the reality is, when it comes to your overall health, the more movement you make, the better.
Exercise is especially good for people with diabetes because it’s been proven to lead to:
- Better blood sugar control
- Healthier weight
- Reduced heart risks
- Less stress
- More restful sleep
- Fewer diabetic complications, like kidney problems and nerve damage
Walking won’t cure you of diabetes, of course. But it could significantly improve your quality of life—and length of it—in the process.
None of Big Pharma’s drugs can do that.
Don’t get overwhelmed by a number like 10,000. Just get moving.
Like I said: the more, the better.
P.S. Walking can boost circulation, strengthen muscles and bones, improve sleep, help you lose weight, raise your mood, and even help you live longer. But if you want to get the MOST out of your daily walk, try this supercharging trick.
