Diabetes patients can laugh off heart risks

Have you ever seen people gathered in groups at parks and beaches laughing the hell out of them? It seems a bit weird for some of us. But actually they are trying to avert health risks by staying happy. Laughter is the best medicine for your heart. Diabetic patients have a greater risk of developing heart diseases. Stress plays a crucial role in triggering heart ailments. The key to staying stress free is being happy by smiling. A recent research shows that a daily dose of humor along with standard medication can keep the heart diseases at bay. The study revealed that there was an obvious increase in the amount of good cholesterol (HDL) among those who giggled daily. Also the levels of C-reactive protein, an indicator for heart-harming inflammation, went down drastically owing to the systematic laughter therapy. Doctors recommend a daily session of laughter by watching a 30 minute funny video or by joking along with friends. Laughter suppresses the stress hormones and provides the goodness of positive emotions. The next time you feel overwhelmed by stress, just flash a smile and shrug off your worries.
