Losing weight through a healthy diet and regular exercise can help reduce this risk.

Eat a Balanced Diet: Eating a balanced diet with a variety of foods can help regulate blood sugar levels and reduce the risk of diabetes. 

Sleep More

Get Adequate Sleep: Lack of sleep can disrupt hormones that regulate blood sugar levels, so it's important to get adequate sleep each night.

Quitting smoking can improve overall health and reduce the risk of diabetes.

Get Your Daily  Dose Of Vitamins

B12 and iron are your best friends for energy.

Manage Stress: Stress can increase blood sugar levels, so it's important to manage stress through techniques like meditation, yoga, or deep breathing.

Exercise Regularly: Exercise helps improve insulin sensitivity, which can help reduce the risk of developing diabetes. 

Focus on whole grains, fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and healthy fats.

By making these lifestyle changes, you can reduce your risk of developing diabetes or improve the management of the condition if you already have it.
