These lifestyle-related diseases often exist together and can increase your chances of developing another chronic illness. Thus your body is like a house of cards, where everything needs other parts to function effectively. When malfunctioning, this affects the other complicated parts of the network that form your holistic body. For example, if you’re obese or overweight, these variables could increase your chances of developing type 2 diabetes. If you already have high blood pressure and high cholesterol levels, your chances of developing type 2 diabetes are significantly increased.

Since these conditions usually co-exist, managing your health for one ailment may assist in alleviating another.

If you cut down on sugar, are more selective with your fat choices and stay active, you can improve your weight management and reduce inflammation. Both of which are needed to prevent type two diabetes, and heart disease. Also, limiting your salt intake can reduce your risk for high blood pressure, hence lowering heart disease risk.
