It's a known fact that diabetes is one of the major causes of leg and foot amputations, as well as adult-onset blindness, heart disease and stroke. New studies show that the disease may not just be hard on your science to prove it. Researchers at Ohio State University found that the more severe a diabetic's symptoms were, the more violent and aggressive they were. In fact, several studies point to a correlation between high crime rates and high diabetes rates around the world. So what's the fix here? In addition to tracking your blood sugar levels and meds, experts recommend taking these steps: First, exercise. Working out reduces stress and helps your body absorb glucose, and you don't have to run for an hour on the treadmill, either. Just a 10-minute walk can do the trick. Another way to keep calm if you have diabetes: Get some sleep. Not getting enough rest can make it hard for non-diabetics to absorb the right amount of glucose for their brains. Since many type-2 diabetics also suffer from sleep apnea, experts suggest that anyone who's been diagnosed with diabetes undergo a sleep study to see if they're getting the rest they need. Finally, *eat a balanced diet, to help maintain steady blood sugar levels. That means plenty of lean proteins, whole grains, fruits, and veggies.
