  49. 51. Although people with diabetes can prevent or delay complications by keeping blood glucose levels close to normal, preventing or delaying the development of type 2 diabetes in the first place is even better. The results of a major federally funded study, the Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP), show how to do so. This study of 3,234 people at high risk for diabetes showed that moderate diet and exercise resulting in a 5- to 7-percent weight loss can delay and possibly prevent type 2 diabetes. The results showed that people in the lifestyle modification group reduced their risk of getting type 2 diabetes by 58 percent. Average weight loss in the first year of the study was 15 pounds. Lifestyle modification was even more effective in those 60 and older. They reduced their risk by 71 percent. Diabetes Prevention Program Study of 3,234 people at high risk for diabetes found that people in the lifestyle modification group reduced their risk of getting type 2 diabetes by 58%. Average weight loss in the first year of the study was 15 lbs. Lifestyle modification was even more effective in those 60 and older. They reduced their risk by 71%.

  50. 52. Heart disease kills more Americans each year than any other disease or illness. It is important to understand what makes heart disease so common and how one can reduce the chances of having heart disease. Heart disease can be silent (no symptoms) in some persons. You may not be aware of heart disease until you have a heart attack (also known as a myocardial infarction ). More than 2600 Americans die every day from cardiovascular (heart and blood vessel) disease. The August 20,2003,issue of JAMA includes several articles about risk factors for heart disease. A risk factor is something that makes you more likely to have a disease, illness or medical problem. Some risk factors are modifiable (can be made better). Other risk factors, such as age and genetics (family history), cannot be changed. <ul><li>Obesity </li></ul><ul><li>Diabetes </li></ul><ul><li>High cholesterol or abnormal blood lipids </li></ul><ul><li>Hypertension </li></ul><ul><li>Sedentary lifestyle </li></ul><ul><li>Smoking </li></ul>( JAMA . 2003; 290: 980) Published in JAMA : August 20, 2003 Modifiable Risk Factors for Heart Disease
  51. 53. <ul><li>Lifestyle Modifications </li></ul><ul><li>Eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, low in saturated fats, and low in total fat content can help to lower cholesterol to healthful levels. </li></ul><ul><li>Engaging in regular exercise for at least 30 minutes each day lowers cholesterol levels and prevents type 2 diabetes, lowers risk of heart disease, and reduces or maintains weight. Regular physical activity (such as walking) is a cornerstone of treatment for high cholesterol and related health problems. </li></ul><ul><li>Losing excess body weight can lower cholesterol levels. Controlling weight by reducing caloric intake and introducing daily exercise has many beneficial effects, including reducing risk for diabetes, heart attack and some cancers. </li></ul><ul><li>Stopping smoking is important because tobacco products damage blood vessels, making it easier for cholesterol to form plaques. </li></ul>Controlling weight by reducing caloric intake and introducing daily exercise has many beneficial effects, including reducing risk for diabetes, heart attack and some cancers.
