Health Expert Sends Strong Warnings About One Major Cause Of Diabetes
A health expert has sent a strong warning about one major trigger of Diabetes.
Abigail Akintola, a nutritionist in Jos Nigeria said stress is a major trigger of diabetes.
In a chat with NAN, Akintola said that stress builds up more glucose in the bloodstream.
“The more the stress in an individual, the more the body produces glucose, if the glucose builds up in the bloodstream this could lead to glucose rise in the body.
“Once a person is stressed, the body naturally produces more glucose (high sugar level) to help re-energise the body, after a while, the body system may not be able to covert the glucose into energy.
“At this stage, if the body can no longer control the sugar level, there is a tendency that such people might start developing diabetes.’’
She urged people to always take time to rest. She advised people to reduce the stress in their lives to help stabilize their health.
The nutritionist also advised people to pay attention to their diet, since most ailments are linked to what people consume.
She said healthy eating and drinking habits should be inculcated in our daily lives.
