Diabetes is a very serious metabolic disease that’s one of the main health problems people face today, and it can be especially harmful to children. Childhood diabetes is usually known as diabetes type 1, but with more and more kids being diagnosed with type 2, it’s raising concerns.

What is Diabetes?

This chronic metabolic condition occurs when insulin, a very important hormone in your body doesn’t regulate or isn’t able to regulate your blood sugar levels. The food you eat gets broken down into carbohydrates, fats, and proteins, which further down the line turn into sugars, amino acids, and fatty acids. 

In order for your body to be able to regulate blood sugar levels and mitigate large spikes, it starts producing insulin.  If it’s unable to do so, sugars stay in your blood for long periods of time and create inflammation, damage cells, and compromise your immune system.

Gastrointestinal issues can show up in a variety of different ways and cause myriad symptoms. Acid reflux is one of them and it’s becoming increasingly common in recent years. 

The uncomfortable symptoms of acid reflux are sometimes hard to manage even with the most popular treatments, but it’s about preventing and not treating this condition that should be the main focus.

Having a regular fitness routine is important in everyone’s life and even more so as we age. Our fitness needs and requirements change over time, but maintaining a good level of fitness promotes a healthy cardiovascular system, functional muscles, and sturdy bones for years to come. 

A growing body of research supports exercise in the older age and shows how much it affects our physical, cognitive, and functional abilities, improving our health and wellbeing, and promoting longevity. Staying physically active helps us stay independent for longer which really impacts our mental health. No one wants to feel like they need to depend on others for tasks that were once so natural, and regular exercise can help immensely in this department.
