Six risk factors that can lead to diabetes


Have you been recently diagnosed with diabetes? If so, you must know that there are two types of diabetes found in people, which are type-1 diabetes and type-2 diabetes. Chances are you were diagnosed with type-2 diabetes, as it is the most common one that develops most often in middle-aged and older people who are somewhat overweight or obese.

There have been multiple risk factors associated with diabetes, such as, Genetic susceptibility and environmental factors. As you read on in this article, you’ll discover six risk factors that can lead to diabetes.


1. Being overweight


Being overweight can increase the chances of developing type 2 diabetes. In this disease, the body makes enough insulin but the cells in the body have become resistant to the salutary action of the insulin, thus making you vulnerable to becoming diabetic. If perhaps you are obese, try as much as possible to visit a doctor and stay informed always.

2. Physical inactivity

Phsical Inactivity

A lack of activity in your daily lifestyle has also been linked as a primal factor for type-2 diabetes. The excessive free fatty acid released by adipose tissue leads to a decrease in the insulin sensitivity of muscle, fat and liver, which is followed by raised glucose levels, insulin resistance and type-2 diabetes.

It is recommended for you to change your lifestyle, becoming more dynamic by developing a habit of practicing physical exercises.

3. Insulin resistance

Insulin Resistance

Insulin resistance, responsible for a continued loss of beta cells causes blood glucose levels to rise above normal range. This risk factor can be silent in nature, so it is best for you to always do medical check-ups once in three months, to avoid every possibility of being inflicted unawares.

4. Genetic susceptibility

Genetic susceptibility

Type 2 diabetes can be hereditary. That doesn’t mean that if your mother or father has or had type2 diabetes, you’re guaranteed to develop it; instead, it means that you have a greater chance of developing it. It’s not too late to have yourself checked.

5. Age



Research has shown that the older you are, the more at risk you are for developing type 2 diabetes. At age 45, your risk starts to rise, and after age 65, your risk increases exponentially. In this case, consult a doctor, to be on the safer side.

6. High-blood

High blood pressure

High-blood pressure can lead to and make worse many complications of diabetes, including, diabetic eye disease and kidney disease. The moment you notice traces of high-blood pressure, don’t wait for multiple re-occurrences before seeking medical intervention.

Experts have observed that people often discover they have diabetic when it’s already too late to be treated. They often neglect warning signs that could be indicating they are diabetic and are often ignorant of the possible risks of being diabetic. Be sure to watch out for these signs and if you think you might be at risk, then see your doctor for a check up as much as possible.
