Prediabetes is reversible, it doesn’t have to progress to diabetes.
If you have prediabetes, you should know you are definately not alone. In 2015, it was estimated that 84.1 million Americans age 18 and older suffered from this condition. That is a whopping 1 in 3 Americans!
Being prediabetic doesn’t mean you will certainly develop diabetes. It is however a warning of what could lie ahead. People with prediabetes have a higher risk for type 2 diabetes as opposed to someone with normal blood sugar levels.
Those chances increase if you don’t make any healthy changes to your diet or activity habits.
It is not all bleak though…. “It can be reversed and you can stop the progression to diabetes. You can take control of your health by making the right choices and actively monitoring your blood sugar to ensure you do not slip into a prediabetic state, or develop into a full diabetic.Tags: Dietitian, Physician, Practitioner, prediabetes
