Here are 12 things you can do:

1 - Avoid sedentary behaviour

A sedentary lifestyle is one in which you sit most of the day and undertake little physical activity. The link between sedentary behaviour and the risk of diabetes is well proven.

An analysis of the results of 47 studies found that people who spent most of the day engaged in sedentary behaviour (eg, office workers) have a 91% risk of developing diabetes.

If you work in an office, there are several ways you can change your sedentary habits:

    - Stand up from your desk and walk around for a few minutes every hour.
    - Stand instead of sitting when talking on the phone.
    - Take the stairs instead of the elevator.
    - Park far away from the supermarket so you have to walk a good distance to get inside.
    - Go for long walks in the evening (easy if you have a dog).

The best way to reverse sedentary tendencies is to commit to specific actions you can do every day.

↪ 2 - Get plenty of exercise
