Swim Spas, Hot Tubs, Saunas Dealer in Portland ME, Mainely Tubs Participates in National Diabetes Month. Offers Free Hot Tub Test Soaks to Local Residents.

Mainely Tubs, a hot tub, sauna and swim spa dealer serving Maine and New Hampshire publishes “Three Ways to Reduce Diabetes Risks.”

“Diabetes is a serious problem, and more than 1 in 11 Americans of all ages live with it,” says Jim Van Fleet, President of Mainely Tubs. Because it has become so prevalent, November has been designated National Diabetes Month, using this time as a way to educate and help people learn how to avoid the illness or live better with diabetes.

“Most literature on Type II diabetes stresses the need to eat right and exercise. Those are certainly two very important elements in controlling the disease and preventing it in the first place, but there are other things people can do to help prevent diabetes, or live healthier and longer with it,” continued Van Fleet.

Here are three things everyone can do to reduce the risk of diabetes, or lessen the impact of the disease.

Stay Hydrated - People often feel hungry due to high blood sugar. The high levels of sugar in the blood confuse the mind into thinking it is craving food, when a drink of water will get rid of the cravings. Drink lots of water to help the body function better, and always look for a glass of water before reaching for a snack.

When a drink of water isn’t satisfying, try a cup of tea. Black and green teas both have shown a lot of evidence in their ability to control blood sugar levels.

Watch for Warnings - Knowing if there is a family history or physical disposition for diabetes can go a long way in helping to prevent the disease. People should talk to their physicians and find out if they are at risk. Everyone can watch for the common signs and symptoms of the early stages of diabetes to help protect themselves.

Signs of both types of diabetes include excessive hunger or constant thirst, frequent urination, itchy skin, dry mouth and vision changes. Some signs that are specific to Type II diabetes include: yeast infections, slow healing, pain or numb feeling in the hands or feet.

Lower Stress with a Portland Hot Tub - Stress can increase the chances of developing Type II diabetes. When people are under stress their blood sugar naturally rises. When it happens too often, the body begins to blur the signals of increased blood sugar due to stress and the ability to deal with the increase swings out of control.

Stress is nearly impossible to escape. People are exposed to various levels of stress all day long at work and school, when dealing with chores or paying bills, or even sitting in traffic. Having a way to relax and get rid of daily stress is an important way to combat many types of illnesses, including diabetes.

Add a hot tub to the yard to provide an easily accessed spa for everyone in the family to enjoy and get rid of stress at any time of the day. Having a hot tub at home cuts out the monthly costs of membership fees at local clubs. It also lets people enjoy all of the benefits of the soothing warm water without the hassle of dealing with strangers, driving or working around health club hours. With a hot tub at home, everyone can relax whenever they have the time.

“To help promote National Diabetes Month, Mainely Tubs will be providing free hot tub wet tests for the entire month. It is recommend however that people wanting to schedule their free 30-minute wet test call ahead of time to reserve their spot,” said Jim.
