used to refer to a form of diabetes that typically develops in later life and is associated with being obese.
“regular exercise helps prevent diabesity”
This the definition of Diabesity I found when I Googled the word. I can’t agree more with this simple definition as it is pretty much spot on with my own condition. I have faithfully visited my doctor for regular annual checkups but it wasn’t until I was 50 years old that it was noticed that my fasting blood sugar was a little higher than it should be. Now at 55 after spending much time and money on the learning process involved in learning how to control it I am blending all I have learned and tried into the 1 year package of what I hope will be a winning answer.
I call it a Diabesity War because it must be fought from all fronts by thousands of people throughout the world who are experiencing the same conditions. It is a war against the food industry who continually use sugar in all forms as an additive to make their products more attractive to the taste, and it is war against the status quo medical industry who prescribe drugs without an active plan in place for their patients that involve both diet and exercise.
Each soldier must take on their own personal battle to fight this war and only through personal changes can he/she win. This year will be about my personal battle which will involve both my successes and failures.
