Two important health awareness months occur this fall, offering you the chance to give yourself and your
lifestyle a check up.
September is National Cholesterol Education Month , sponsored by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute.
If you don't know your cholesterol level, take some time to find out because high blood cholesterol increases your risk of coronary heart disease. To lower your blood cholesterol, follow a low saturated fat, low cholesterol diet; increase your physical activity; and lose weight if you're overweight.
November is American Diabetes Month, sponsored by the American Diabetes Association.
Being overweight or obese is a leading risk factor for type 2 diabetes. People with diabetes face an increased risk of a heart attack or a stroke. Losing weight and increasing activity can reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes among people who are at high risk.
Remember to take care of yourself this month and every month.
Remember that Medibar Diet's Weight Loss Program is a diabetic friendly diet plan.
