Prevention still option after pre-diabetes start

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off

If you have been diagnosed with pre-diabetes, you can take a “wait-and-see” approach to developing type 2 diabetes or you can become proactive in your attempts to prevent your condition form developing into diabetes.

The American Diabetes Association explains that before people develop type 2 diabetes, they almost always have pre-diabetes — blood glucose levels that are higher than normal but not yet high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. Recent research has shown that some long-term damage to the body, especially the heart and circulatory system, may already be occurring during pre-diabetes.

The good news is there are things you can do to prevent or delay the development of type 2 diabetes. The Diabetes Management and Supplies Learning Center contains a discussion on pre-diabetes and the lifestyle changes that can help you prevent diabetes. Commitments to diet and exercise changes are very good starts.

Visit the DMS Learning Center and the ADA for more on pre-diabetes.
