Not everyone who is concerned about Diabetes necessarily is a Diabetic. We’ve compiled the latest information to allow you to fight against the causes of Diabetes. These preventative measures include healthy eating and staying active.
Here’s a description according to the American Diabetes Association:
“Before people develop type 2 diabetes, they almost always have ‘pre-diabetes’—blood glucose levels that are higher than normal but not yet high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. There are 57 million people in the United States who have pre-diabetes. Recent research has shown that some long-term damage to the body, especially the heart and circulatory system, may already be occurring during pre-diabetes.”
Remember, the most important, and positive thing about Pre-Diabetes is that you are not destined to become a diabetic. With the right meal planning, exercise regimen, and overall improvement in healthly lifestyle, Pre-Diabetes is a treatable condition.
