Here’s a great way to take control of your health even with the sobering statistics just released from the Centers for Disease Control. The CDC says a third of Americans has prediabetes, and 90-percent don’t even know it. Prediabetes is a condition that shouldn’t be taken lightly. Long-term health risks include development of full-blown diabetes. It can be reversed through healthy eating, weight loss and exercise. The key is diagnosis. You can take a simple risk test by visiting the American Diabetes Association website, DoIHavePrediabetes.org.
People with prediabetes are on the road to develop type 2 diabetes and are also at increased risk for serious health problems such as stroke and heart disease. With a little exercise and a change in diet prediabetes often can be reversed. Let’s face it, there are millions of reasons why we don’t find the time to make healthy lifestyle choices–kids, jobs, cat videos on the internet—we’re busy. But whatever your reason, prediabetes is real. So find out if you have prediabetes by taking the test now. You won’t regret it and your family will thank you for it.
