Diabetes and its complications are a major cause of death in the U.S. today. One of the main measures a person can take to prevent diabetes is monitoring and learning how to regulate blood sugar levels. While there are specific types of foods to avoid – or at least to pay attention to – the number #1 action to protect yourself and your health from diabetes is a lifestyle change.
In this episode of the Next Level Human Podcast, Dr. Jade talks with Dr. Mary Kellis, Endocrinologist, about what these lifestyle changes encompass and how people can start to be aware of blood sugar in their day-to-day lives. Dr. Mary highlights the importance of exercising more, diminishing refined sugars, and looking into eating habits in general. Dr. Mary also explains CGM (Continuous Glucose Monitoring) and how much it has been contributing to the research and overall diabetes prevention.
