Here’s some new advice for the whole family, based on a new study: If you want to keep type 2 Diabetes away, eat your pancakes… or eggs, or cereal, or toast, or whatever you like to eat for breakfast. Whatever you eat, the point is that taking time to eat breakfast each morning appears to lower the risk of developing type 2 Diabetes by a significant amount—maybe even by up to 30 percent.
Breakfast is Served!
One good way to make sure that your elder loved one eats breakfast is to hire a company that provides home health care. In Fallbrook or elsewhere, the home health caregiver can manage your elderly loved one’s nutrition, and you should make sure that the caregiver is providing a healthy breakfast each morning. The onset of type 2 Diabetes is very hard on an aging body, so anything we can do to avoid it is worth the work. Besides, eating a substantial meal at the beginning of the day has always been a popular recommendation from health experts.
Home Health Care in Fallbrook Can Help
As busy as members of the sandwich generation are, it can be easy for them to reach the middle of the day and suddenly realize they never ate breakfast! While it’s important for these active adults to try to work breakfast into their daily routine, it is even more critical for seniors in declining health. If you can’t take the time to make sure your aging parent gets his or her morning pick-me-up, home health care in Fallbrook can take that and many other responsibilities off your shoulders.
Interestingly, the study that recently published these recommendations didn’t focus on the actual nutritional content of the meals its subjects ate. The researchers simply checked on a group of over 5,000 subjects and indicated how often during the week they ate breakfast. Granola, cereal, waffles, steak and eggs—any type of breakfast counted. The lesson is, don’t worry so much about what you’re eating, as long as you eat something.
Home health care in San Diego County is an important aid for busy families when it comes to seniors’ nutrition. Their defense against diabetes and many other illnesses depends on regular, healthy meals, and a professional caregiver knows how to manage that effectively.
