Pre-Diabetes: “The Lie That Is Killing Us”

If you tested your blood sugar first thing in the morning and saw this number, do you know what it means?

Approximately 90 million people living in the U.S. are pre-diabetic. About 90% are unaware of that fact. Of those that have been told, there is often no sense of urgency impressed upon them to act on this information, largely due to the term “pre-diabetes.” (Article: Pre-Diabetes, the Lie That is Killing Us – HERE.)

Make no mistake, pre-diabetes is early, or “stage 1” diabetes.  If no action is taken, one can expect to progress to type 2 in a very short period of time.  If you have been told you have pre-diabetes, it is time to act.  It is NOT o.k. to just “watch it” (My Article: Pre-Diabetes: Why your Doctor’s Advice To “Watch It” Is the Worst Advice You Could Follow – HERE.)

I WAS a pre-diabetic who is grateful that I ignored that advice.
