“Type 2 Diabetes has reached epidemic status, with 1 out of every 10 people over the age of 20 affected,” said Dan Friedman, vice president of The Hot Tub Store. “While Diabetes is incurable, making healthy lifestyle choices can prevent further symptoms and help to avoid serious complications. Education and information is the key to early prevention and an important goal for learning to live an active, healthy life with Diabetes,” continued Friedman. Here are a few things to consider:
Excess Weight - For those who are overweight, there is some good news. Losing 5 to 10 percent of body weight can significantly reduce the risk of getting Diabetes. And for those who are overweight with diabetes, losing a few pounds can help prevent serious complications down the road. Physical activity is highly recommended for people with Type 2 Diabetes, even those who are not overweight, as regular exercise helps maintain healthy weight, keeps blood sugar regulated and reduces risk of other weight related conditions like heart disease and stroke.
Symptoms - The symptoms of Diabetes are varied and not always consistent. In some cases, symptoms may not be evident for several months, even years after getting the disease. Nevertheless, part of being aware and informed involves knowing the specific symptoms that could lead to Diabetes. An important first step in prevention, recognizing the signs and taking actions that may reduce risk. Excessive thirst, hunger, fatigue, blurred vision and increased urination are some of the common signs or symptoms that may suggest Diabetes.
Hot Tub Therapy - The benefits of using a hot tub for pain relief or relaxation are well known and there really is no better way to reduce stress than taking a long, hot soak. But studies confirm consistent use of a hot tub can also benefit those with Type 2 Diabetes. Heated water increases blood flow to skeletal muscles which helps the body use insulin more effectively. And for those who cannot engage in physical activity, the physiological effects of soaking in the warm water actually simulate exercise, promoting weight loss, leading to a healthy body weight.
“We think this is a great opportunity to actually show men and women the positive effects that soaking in a hot tub spa can have in terms of improving the overall quality of their lives. That’s why we will provide free hot tub test soaks in all five of our locations throughout the entire month,” said Friedman. “We want residents to check out all the benefits of a relaxing in HotSpring Spa and hot tub for themselves.”
