Does Changing Lifestyle Can Cure Hereditary Diseases?
Hello, I plan to do a medical check-up because of my family history of heart disease and diabetes. If later the results have come out and the results are not too good. Can diseases that are recognized from medical check-ups be cured / reduced only by changing habits into healthy lifestyles? Thank you
Hello Tata, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Someone who has a family history of a nuclear family (father, mother, grandfather, grandmother or older sister) who suffers from heart disease (according to high risk criteria) or diabetes is indeed increasingly at high risk of experiencing the same thing so it is advisable to start maintaining a pattern of life early.
If the results of your medical check-up are not good, the results may not be corrected only with lifestyle changes without the need for medication because it all depends on diagnosing your condition after the results come out. Indeed there are certain restrictions that can still be changed only by lifestyle changes, but there are also where medicines are needed to help overcome them.
In the meantime, you should adopt a healthy lifestyle without waiting for your medical check-up to show poor results, such as:
exercise regularly at least 3 times a week with a minimum length of 30 minutes per time
increase vegetable and fruit intake
limit consumption of fatty foods, high in sugar, high in calories and high in salt
maintain a minimum of 2 liters of fluid intake per day
get enough rest every day which is at least 6-8 hours
I hope this helps.
