What is Prediabetes?
Prediabetes is a condition in which blood glucose or hemoglobin A1C (HbA1C) levels are higher than normal but not high enough to be classified as diabetes.
Eighty-six million adults in the United States have prediabetes, but 90 percent of them don’t know they have it! Up to 30 percent of people with prediabetes will develop diabetes within five years.
Most people with type 2 diabetes are required to take several medicines to control it. Over time the efficacy of the medicines diminish and it's necessary to increase the dosage or change the types of medicines, often this can be more expensive medicines or even insulin which could also affect the patients mentally as many people are afraid of daily injections.
It is very common with people suffering from type 2 diabetes to be confused about which are the best foods to control their condition, this lack of understanding leads to failure diets that only leaves people frustrated while their health continues to deteriorate.
Some diabetes medications can cause weight gain and even if you follow strict “low-calorie diets” it could still be very difficult to lose the weight which leaves patients feeling ashamed and depressed.
Diabetes that is not under control is often the cause of other conditions such as, Heart problems, kidney failures, nerve damage and it even increases the risk of cancer.
While type 2 diabetes is often the main illness, people often suffer from high blood pressure and/or high cholesterol when dealing with this condition.
A common misconception is that type 2 diabetes is not curable or controllable because it has been in your family’s history, this couldn’t be farther from the truth.
