Obesity Takes Eight Years Off Diabetics' Lives

If you have diabetes and are obese, here is more motivation to normailize your weight: obesity can reduce the life expectancy of diabetes patients by up to eight years. People with diabetes also have double the risk of dying. Excess weight is the most common and avoidable risk factor for type 2 diabetes, and even a five to 10 percent weight loss can reduce the risks associated with this disease. If you fit into this category, I urge you to adopt a healthy diet and start exercising, as this is often all that is needed to solve this health challenge.
