Two conditions affecting millions of people around the world; Type 2 diabetes and obesity need little introduction, even for the less informed. These are diseases capable of impacting on an individual’s quality of life, adversely influencing their health, and their physical and mental well-being. The only way to be truly satisfied and happy in one’s skin, is to possess a healthy body unaffected by serious illness. It’s undoubtedly true to suggest Type 2 diabetics and those who are overweight or obese could improve their overall life experience if they were to start treating their condition and take action to improve their health.
Health comes first. It’s an investment that always pays back in kind. To neglect your well-being is ill-advised and deeply unfortunate.
It’s quite interesting to consider the link between Type 2 diabetes and obesity. If you haven’t already noticed the two diseases often go hand in hand as in…
- many overweight individuals are becoming diabetics, and
- you’ll also find many diabetics struggling with weight issues.
The fact these diseases are usually concurrent is not due to mere coincidence. The same factors contributing to the development of Type 2 diabetes also drive obesity – and vice versa. It’s unfortunate among aging adults these conditions are becoming so ubiquitous. But, at some point it’s essential to fully accept the reality of the situation and, most importantly, to actively determine your own circumstance.
