In a recent study, it was found that socially isolated individuals are diagnosed with type 2 Diabetes more often than people who have larger social networks. People who live alone seem to be at a higher risk for the development of type 2 diabetes. Apart from this, there are a lot of foods that are known to increase the risk of type 2 diabetes to a great extent.
Aerated drinks like sodas, soft drinks and teas are linked to an increased risk of type 2 diabetes. Such beverages are loaded with sugar which might increase insulin resistance and can also lead to weight gain. All you have to do is to limit the intake of sugar-sweetened beverages and replace it with fruit drinks instead. It's always a good idea to keep your body hydrated by drinking more water as it helps in flushing out toxins from the body.
High cholesterol is a risk factor for type 2 diabetes. Unhealthy saturated and trans fats can increase cholesterol levels in the blood to a great extent. Packaged baked foods are loaded with trans fats, whereas cheese, full-cream milk and butter contain saturated fats.
