Prediabetes

Health check up

 

If a person’s blood sugar is higher than normal, but not high enough to be considered diabetes, they could have pre-diabetes. This increases their risk of developing type 2 diabetes in the future. Without lifestyle changes to improve their health, 15% to 30% of people with prediabetes will develop type 2 diabetes within five years. Research shows that losing a modest amount of weight and adding moderate exercise such as walking 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week significantly lowers your risk. By increasing physical activity and paying attention to eating a healthy diet blood sugar values can be brought back to a healthy level.

Talk with your healthcare provider about your medical history, your blood sugar levels and what you can do to keep them within the healthy range. Change is not easy, but your health is worth it! Don’t have a health care provider? Find a Doctor today!
