Eat a Mediterranean style

Dr. Ender Arıkan “Research conducted; It shows that the Mediterranean diet, that is, a diet rich in fiber, fruits, vegetables and salads, is the healthiest diet. "The diet must definitely return to the Mediterranean style." said.

Take a walk every day

The sedentary lifestyle, which has become increasingly common in the modern age, invites many diseases. Exercising at a certain pace daily keeps the metabolism alive. Emphasizing that against insulin resistance syndrome, 5 to 30 minutes of brisk walking should be done at least 45 days a week. Dr. Arıkan said, “Although walking is a type of exercise that all age groups can easily do, it is necessary to focus on its benefits and make an effort to make it a habit.” he said.

reduce salt consumption

Emphasizing that excessive salt consumption, which is especially common in our country, negatively affects the metabolism by both stimulating insulin resistance and increasing appetite, Prof. Dr. Ender Arıkan continued his words as follows:

“The majority of blood pressure patients are also sensitive to salt. "Considering that our daily salt consumption is almost 4-5 times our needs, it is clear that reducing salt will lead to very positive results."

Sleep must be evaluated and regulated in terms of its period, duration, depth and quality. Prof. stated that being awake between 23:00 at night and 07:00 in the morning causes an increase in insulin levels along with the increased stress hormone. Dr. Arıkan said, “A quality sleep should be a sleep that lasts between 23.00 at night and 07.00 in the morning, reaches a certain depth and our biological rhythms are fully established. "The presence of hypopnea or apnea, which prevents a healthy sleep, also needs to be investigated," he said.
