Tip #36: Prevention is relevant!

Tip #36: Prevention is relevant!

 

 

While diabetes is a global epidemic, taking much of the scientific and medical attention, pre-diabetes is usually, and wrongly, out of the spotlight. 

About 30% of the US adult population have prediabetes, whether diagnosed or not (96 million people). In contrast to type 2 diabetes, pre-diabetes is much more easy to treat, a process which allows us to prevent the next diagnosis of type 2 diabetes.

So what does pre-diabetes mean? A higher blood sugar level than it should be, yet not as high as expected in proper diabetes diagnosis.

The common measurement for blood sugar levels is A1C, average blood sugar levels over the past two to three months. From here the scale is simple and even intuitive: 

In your next blood tests, whether they are a part of routine testing or a particular medical examination, take a look at your A1C measurement and use the scale to locate your results. Consult with your doctor if necessary, and take good care of your healthy well-being.

 

Wishing you a good night’s sleep
