The Lake Gaston Lions Club Unites to Defeat Diabetes

Understanding Prediabetes: A Crucial Step Towards Preventing Type 2 Diabetes

There is a medical condition called prediabetes, which is the focus of this posting. First off, how is the diagnosis made, and what does it mean? This is a serious health condition where blood sugar (glucose levels) are higher than normal but not high enough to definitely call it type 2 diabetes

What is the cause? Insulin, the hormone secreted by the pancreas that allows glucose into the cells for energy, is not utilized efficiently. You then continually produce insulin to try to get cells to respond. Eventually, your cells can’t keep up and glucose increases in the blood, not entering the cells, setting the stage for prediabetes. If not addressed, you guessed it, type 2 diabetes, which is not curable.

The upside is if you have prediabetes, the CDC has suggestions for lifestyle changes to prevent or delay type 2 diabetes.

The fact is more than 96 million American adults have prediabetes. Yet, shockingly 80% of adults are not aware.

A simple test can be done to find out if you are at risk. Ask your doctor at your next visit. It could mean preventing type 2 diabetes, stroke and heart disease. You are worth it.

Remember, We won't sugarcoat the facts.
