    From the results of a recent study conducted by medical experts, found a new theory which states that diabetes mellitus is not only caused by heredity (genetics), but is also influenced by several other factors that multi-complex, such as living habits and environment. People whose bodies carry diabetes genes, will not necessarily suffer from diabetes, because there are several other factors that may cause the disease in a person, which include binge eating / obesity, lack of exercise or less exercise and pregnancy. Here are, 10 bad habits that can causes diabetes.

    1. Snacking: We assume, by limiting the lunch or dinner can avoid obesity and diabetes. Because not full, stomach filled with a piece or two pieces of biscuits and snacks like potato chips. In fact, biscuits, potato chips, and other sweet pastries containing high carbohydrate content and without adequate food. All the food was classified in foods with a high glycemic index. Meanwhile, sugar and flour contained in it have a role in raising blood sugar levels.

    2. Lazy to do physical activity: The World Health Organization (WHO) said that, cases of diabetes in Asian countries will rise by 90 percent in the next 20 years. "In 10 years, the number of diabetics in Hanoi, Vietnam, doubled. The reason? In this city, people prefer riding than cycling, "said Dr. Gauden Galea, WHO Advisor for Non-Communicable Diseases in the Western Pacific Region. In conclusion, those who are less physically active have a higher risk of obesity than those who diligently biking, walking, or other activities.

    3. Often experience stress: Stress is the same as flooding, must be channeled to the major flood. When stress comes, the body will increase the production of the hormones epinephrine and cortisol that blood sugar rises, and there is a reserve of energy to move. Our bodies are designed so that, for a good purpose. However, if high blood sugar continues triggered by prolonged stress with no way out, like suicide slowly.

    4. Too much drinking soda: From research conducted by The Nurses' Health Study II on 51 603 women aged 22-44 years, found that increased consumption of soft drinks make weight and risk of diabetes soared. The researchers said the increased risk was due to the content of sweetener in soft drinks. In addition, liquid calories do not make us full, so motivated to drink more.

    5. Less of morning sun exposure: According to the journal Diabetes Care, women with a high intake of vitamin D and calcium at low risk of developing diabetes type 2. Apart from food, the best source of vitamin D is sunlight. Twenty minutes of exposure to sunlight in the morning is sufficient for vitamin D for three days. Several recent studies, which were published by the American Journal of Epidemiology, suggests that vitamin D also helps the metabolism of the body, including blood sugar.

    6. Cigarette addiction: An American study involving 4,572 volunteers men and women found that active smokers the risk of diabetes increased by 22 percent. It added that the increase in risk is not just caused by smoking, but the combination of unhealthy lifestyles, such as diet and exercise.

    7. Using the contraceptive pill: Most contraceptive pill is made from a combination of estrogen and progestin, or just progestin alone. Combination pills often lead to changes in blood sugar levels. According to a doctor, working hormonal contraceptive pill as opposed to insulin. Because insulin work unopposed, the pancreas is forced to work harder to produce insulin. If left too long, the pancreas becomes exhausted and not functioning properly.

    8. Sweet Tea: The explanation is simple. The high intake of sugar causes blood sugar levels soaring. Yet the risk of excess calories. A glass of sweet tea contains approximately 250-300 calories (depending on density). Caloric needs of an average adult woman is 1,900 calories per day (depending on activity). From our sweet tea was able to 1000-1200 calories. Not to plus three meals of rice and side dishes. Should be assumed that every day we are excess calories. End: obesity and diabetes.

    9. Too much eating fried foods: Because of the small, one fried not enough for us. And fried is one of the high risk factors trigger degenerative diseases, such as cardiovascular, diabetes mellitus, and stroke. The main cause of cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the blockage of the coronary arteries, with one of the main risk factor was dyslipidemia. Dyslipidemia is a disorder of lipid metabolism characterized by elevated levels of total cholesterol, LDL (bad cholesterol) and triglycerides, and decreased levels of HDL (good cholesterol) in the blood. Increasing the proportion of dyslipidemia in the community due to the habit of eating a variety of foods low in fiber and high in fat, including fried.

    10. Lack of sleep: If the quality of sleep is not obtained, then the metabolism will be disturbed. Research experts from the University of Chicago revealed that lack of sleep for 3 days resulted in the body's ability to process glucose declined drastically. That is, the risk of diabetes increases. Lack of sleep also can stimulate a hormone in the blood that trigger appetite. Driven hunger, people with sleep disorders triggered by eating high-calorie foods that make blood sugar levels rise.
