How does my weight relate to type-2 diabetes?

There are many risk factors for type-2 diabetes however; the single best predictor of type 2 diabetes is overweight or obesity. Almost 90% of people living with type-2 diabetes are overweight or have obesity. People who are overweight or have obesity have added pressure on their body's ability to use insulin to properly control blood sugar levels, and are therefore more likelyto develop diabetes and are at high risk of heart diseases. 

What can you do to prevent diabetes? 

Types 2 diabetes is largely preventable and if you are recently diagnosed or have diabetes then just do it now: 

  • Immediate 7-10 % of weight loss can prevent or delay development of type-2 diabetes among high-risk adults.
  • Lifestyle interventions including diet and moderate to intense physical activity (such as walking for 150 minutes per week).
  • Weight management regularly by active or passive cardiovascular is the best thing to prevent further development of diabetes.
  • Many people are overweight when they're first diagnosed, and that extra fat actually increases their insulin resistance (when their bodies can't properly use the hormone insulin). And with immediate reduction in weight, they're able to use insulin better. 

Blizz Therapy reduces Medicines/ insulin intake/Diabetes Mellitus

  • Therapy Reduces body fat (subcutaneous and visceral) which results in better glucose control, thus these helps in delay the progression of diabetes and helps to prevent the complications associated with it. 
  • Blizz Far Infrared Therapy helps in reduction of weight nearly 3-5 kg within a month, which helps in reduction of requirement of oral anti-diabetic medication or Insulin & medications including Insulin become more effective. 
  • 30 minutes of Detox Care= 10 km of jogging = burn 600-900 calories which is best passive cardiovascular exercise. 

Study of different institutes on Diabetes with Far Infrared Therapy: 

In 2010 issue of Acta Medica Okayama, doctors from the Department of Physical Therapy at KIBI International University, Japan, studied the effect of infrared therapy on patients with type-2 diabetes. Results showed that some of the most far-reaching benefits of far-infrared therapy are for people who are pre-diabetic with a constellation of symptoms known as Syndrome X, which reflects a number of dysfunctions involving cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar and obesity. These underlying conditions all indicate a person who is at high risk for developing diabetes, yet all respond remarkably well to Far-infrared therapy.
