Persistently high blood sugar not only damages blood vessels, it can have long-term health consequences and can inadvertently shorten your life. However, your diet can help lower your risk of disease, express.com.

Yogurt and lowering the risk of diabetes

Researchers detailed in the journal BMC Medicine that consumption of a dairy product is linked to a lower risk of type 2 diabetes, which happens to be yogurt.

Commenting on the research, Diabetes UK pointed out that dairy products, such as yogurt, generally have a low glycemic index, GI, which informs people whether a food raises blood glucose too quickly. Fat is the best choice.

What about other dairy products?

The research added that consuming other dairy products, besides yogurt, does not increase the risk of diabetes.

Diabetes UK states that whether we have diabetes or not, we need some dairy (or non-dairy alternatives like soy) like milk, cheese and yoghurt every day.

This recommendation is based on the proteins and vitamins in dairy products that can help keep your bones and teeth strong.

However, dairy products can be high in fat and saturated fat, so low-fat alternatives are suggested, the charity explained: “Adults and older children who consume a lot of fat may find they gain weight.”

Obesity is one of the risk factors for developing diabetes, along with other risk factors, which are:

– getting old

A family history of diabetes

-high blood pressure


-Pregnancy diabetes

– Polycystic ovary syndrome

– Sedentary lifestyle

Troubled sleep.
