Tyler, TX, March 27, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- East Texas Spa, a new and used hot tub dealer with stores in Tyler and Longview, TX is providing free hot tub spa test soaks in both their East Texas showrooms to help educate the public on ways to prevent the risks of diabetes.
“March 25th is American Diabetes Association Alert Day and the perfect time to get tested for diabetes as well as share some important information on preventing the disease through healthy lifestyle choices,” said Randall Glaske, president of East Texas Spa. “Educating the public on how to avoid risk factors and stay healthy is a critical first step in living diabetes-free and an important goal of Alert Day,” continued Glaske. Here are three simple diabetes health tips.
Assessing Risk - Sponsored by the American Diabetes Association, the Diabetes Risk Test is free to everyone, and an opportunity to identify those who are at risk for developing Type 2 diabetes. One in three adults has pre-diabetes, a sign of elevated risk for developing the disease in the future http://www.diabetes.org/in-my-community/local-offices/austin-texas/diabetes-alert-day-2012.html . Raising awareness through the test is a smart strategy, helping folks identify if they may need to make healthier lifestyle choices to delay or prevent the onset of Type 2 diabetes.
Weight Management - Obesity is the number one risk factor for developing diabetes. Unfortunately, over 30 percent of the adult population in the United States is overweight, highlighting the importance of taking action now. Luckily, unlike other risk factors which cannot be changed, like age or genetics, weight can be controlled. Eating a diet high in protein and low in fat, exercising regularly and maintaining a healthy body weight is the key to living a healthy diabetes-free life.
The Benefits of Using a Hot Tub - Most people know that using a hot tub is an excellent way to reduce aches and pains and relieve stress. But the heated water from the hot tub can also be extremely effective at reducing symptoms of Type 2 diabetes. Numerous studies, including one in the New England Journal of Medicine, confirm how using a hot tub regularly can reduce blood sugar levels, improve sleep and even enhance weight loss. It has to do with the elevated temperature of the water, which increases blood flow, leading to improved use of insulin.
With a goal of raising awareness to the risks associated with diabetes and helping inform those who may have pre-diabetes, Alert Day is an important event. Making healthy lifestyle choices and understanding the risks associated with diabetes are key to prevention and early detection.
“We think this is a great opportunity to actually show local residents 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 both of our East Texas locations throughout the entire month,” said Chris Ogden, Longview Branch Manager. “We want residents to check out all the benefits of a relaxing in hot tub for themselves.”
