3 Habits We Are All Guilty Of That Can Lead To Diabetes

We reap what we sow. There is no doubt that our habits widely determine our health in the long run. But more often than not, we are caught up in our hectic lifestyle that we take for granted minor details and habits that can lead to serious diseases as we grow older.

As we continue ongoing discussions on fighting diabetes, we’re here to tackle some practices to avoid to reduce our risks of developing diabetes.

Here are 3 habits that most of us are guilty of, but can in fact lead to diabetes (Source:

  1. Lack of sleep

People who tend to sleep late and get less than 7 hour of sleep are most likely to develop diabetes as it can adversely affect your metabolism.

Studies done in Singapore show that “pregnant women who get less than six hours of sleep a night are almost twice as likely to get gestational diabetes (GDM) compared with those who sleep for seven to eight hours.”

  1. Having long hours of screen time

While staying up late is a factor in itself, sleeping late due to exposure to artificial light such as using your cellphone or watching television can contribute to lower insulin sensitivity. This further increases the risk of diabetes.

  1. Skipping the most important meal of the day

Ellen Calogeras, a diabetes educator with Cleveland Clinic Diabetes Center told that skipping breakfast can lead not only to hunger in the late morning, but also greatly increase the risk for type 2 diabetes. Depriving yourself of nutrients from food can lead to abnormal blood sugar levels.
