Over 29 million Americans have diabetes. Another 86 million have pre-diabetes. The resulting circulatory, heart and eye problems make life more difficult and, sadly, shorter. Here are some ways to prevent or manage the disease!

  1. Sprinkle with cinnamon!

Studies find that people with type 2 diabetes who eat one gram ( just a pinch of light sprinkle) of this tasty spice everyday may experience a drop in blood sugar. Try cinnamon on your morning fruit, cereal, in your coffee or dusted on yogurt.

2. Don’t just sit there.

An extra two hours a day spent watching television increases your risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 14%, according to report published in the Journal of the American medical Association. Our suggestion – ┬árun around the block between episodes, go to the park with your kids and or do small exercises between commercials.

3. Have a cup of coffee or two.

Numerous studies show that drinking more than two cups of coffee a day is associated with a 25% lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes. The FDA maintains per day of caffeine is safe for healthy adults. Which is awesome, because who doesn’t love a good cup of joe?!
