Diabetes

Diabetes affects 1 in 4 women ages 55 years and older and is the fourth leading cause of death for all ages. While some risk factors for type 2 diabetes cannot be controlled, such as age or family history, there are certain steps that can be taken to prevent or delay the disease. Practicing aerobic and muscle-strengthening activities can keep diabetes at bay, so promote exercise with a new bicycle or dance classes and make quality time a healthy time.
