Prediabetes is a clinical condition that occurs just before the onset of type II diabetes. It occurs when the level of your blood sugar rises to extremely high levels, but not high enough to be diagnosed with diabetes. In the United States, no fewer than 57 million persons are affected by prediabetes.
An individual is considered to have prediabetes when his fasting blood sugar level rises up to 126 mg/dL. It suffices to say that prediabetes is marked by a blood sugar level between 100 and 125 mg/dL. Prediabetic patients have a higher risk of getting down with heart disease. Their risk of developing heart disease is higher by 50% compared to people who have a normal blood sugar level. On the other hand, fully diagnosed diabetic patients have a 2- to 4-fold increased risk of heart disease. It is now known that prediabetic patients can delay the onset of diabetes or even prevent it by making adequate changes to their diet and lifestyle. There's a rough estimate that more than half of people with prediabetes do develop full-blown Type II diabetes at some point in their lives.
We need to understand that prediabetes is widespread, we need to know our blood sugar levels, and most importantly, we need to know that there are things we can do to prevent or delay the onset of Type II diabetes. You should agree with me on this, yes!
It is time we take prediabetes seriously. It is something that can be impacted on and we should start that right away. A prediabetic patient has his risk of a stroke or a heart attack increased by 50% and this occurs even before they are diabetic. It is no longer news that heart disease is the number one killer in America, so if your blood sugar level is up, then you need to do something about it. Fifty percent increased risk and about 79 million Americans are living with prediabetes? If nothing is done, then we may have another 79 million diabetics in a few years.
It is the aim of this book to teach, and educate on prediabetes.
