Mesa, AZ, March 27, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Southwest Spas, the premier Dimension One Spas dealer in the Phoenix and Scottsdale, Arizona area selling new and used hot tubs is participating in American Diabetes Association Day.
“American Diabetes Association Alert Day and the perfect time to take steps towards early prevention and lifestyle changes for living a healthy diabetes-free life,” said Melinda Dalacas, manager of Southwest Spas.
“Millions of children and adults are currently living with diabetes, making the goal of raising awareness through testing and early detection so important,” continued Dalacas. Here are three helpful tips to help prevent the risks of diabetes.
Diabetes Risk Test, The American Diabetes Association offers a Diabetes Risk Test which is fast, free and easy. By providing answers to a few simple questions, individual risks are identified and preventive measures are suggested. Before the onset of Type 2 diabetes, people often test positive for pre-diabetes, or blood glucose levels, that are unusually high, but not high enough to predict diabetes. Testing is the easiest way to ensure early detection and prevention strategies are successful.
Healthy Choices Can Help Prevent Type 2 Diabetes, Luckily, it is possible to delay or even prevent getting Type 2 diabetes by making smart lifestyle choices. Eating healthier, incorporating exercise into a daily routine and maintaining a healthy body weight are three of the most influential steps in preventing the onset of Type 2 diabetes. Fitness doesn’t have to be strenuous, and small dietary changes are often all that is necessary to significantly decrease risk. By staying active, substituting fresh fruits and vegetables for breads and pastas and keeping off excess weight, the risks of Type 2 diabetes reduce dramatically.
Health Benefits of a Hot Tub The warm, relaxing water of the hot tub is truly enjoyable, but now there’s one more reason to sit in the bubbly water: Using a hot tub at least a few times a week for twenty minutes can significantly reduce symptoms of Type 2 diabetes and may even lower risk factors associated with diabetes. Heat not only warms and relaxes the muscles, but also raises internal body temperature.
Elevated temperature causes the body to use more energy cooling itself which mimics light cardiovascular exercise. For folks who have difficulty exercising, using a hot tub may be the perfect solution for enhancing a weight loss and fitness program. For those with Type 2 diabetes, regular use of a hot tub may lower blood sugar levels as increased blood flow helps the body use insulin more effectively.
March 25th is Alert Day, and it’s one more reason why people should be encouraged to seek out the Diabetes Risk Test. With regular testing, healthy lifestyle choices and awareness, it’s possible to work together to stop diabetes in its tracks.
“To help local residents understand how portable spas, hot tubs and swim spas can help improve overall health and well-being, Southwest Spas will provide free hot tub test soaks during the entire month,” commented Dalacas. “We want to encourage local residents to check out the benefits of a relaxing soak in the soothing waters of a hot tub for themselves.”
