Endocrinologist Olga Koteshkova undertook to dispel the established myth. It turned out that heredity and the level of physical activity with the general condition also play an important role in this matter.
At the same time, sweets can also provoke diabetes. True, then sweet food should be combined with fat – it is this “alliance” that enhances insulin resistance.
The endocrinologist focused on the fact that “not all 100% of cases of this disease are associated with the use of sweet foods.” The key factor here is the person’s body weight – with increasing weight, the risks of developing the disease only increase.
To prevent diabetes, she suggested leading a healthy lifestyle and eating right.
