Did you know being diagnosed with prediabetes is good news? Well, at least if you consider yourself the type of person who sees a glass as half full. While prediabetes tends to catch many people off guard, it is in reality, a warning of what is to come if no action is taken to be tested regularly to be sure you have your levels back in check. And by realizing a prediabetes diagnosis has this silver lining, you can act to prevent the problems that go hand-in-hand with a Type 2 diabetes diagnosis.
Your blood sugar levels are not quite high enough to give you a diagnosis of Type 2 diabetes, but it means you are on your way unless you intervene now. When it comes to dealing with a prediabetes diagnosis, this is the time to deal with your rising insulin levels which may be very high, although your fasting blood sugar may be only mildly elevated.
How are you dealing with this, or how would you act if it happened to you? Take a brief moment to reflect.
