Why is diebetes on tbe rise? Because people lead sedentary lives and eat whatever they want without thinking about what it is they are consuming. That, along with apathy. There's so much medical advancement nowadays that some people think that Doctor's can just fix it and therefore it's okay to not care about what they are doing to their bodies. Yes, I've met people who think like that. They boggle my mind, even before I became more health conscious.
My risk factor is the fact that I had gestational diebetes. My mother is also diebetic. Of course, I used to be in the fat and lazy, eat whatever I want crowd, but I'm ridding myself of that, so hopefully I won't ever get it again. If I have another child I want to be at a healthy weight so that I won't have two insulin resisters working against me. This will be better for me and the baby. If no other child comes along, it's still a dang good thing not to have diebetes since that can lead to so many other health issues. Ick. No thank you.
Yay for the continuation of my running theme!
