How you can prevent Diabetes!

November is National Diabetes Awareness Month. Approximately 30 million people live with Diabetes in America some of whom don’t even know they have diabetes. In October I had the honor of speaking at the Diabetes is Primary Conference about Diabetes Prevention and early detection.

The good news is that you can prevent Diabetes! You can prevent Diabetes by incorporating specific lifestyle changes that decrease the risk of progressing from Pre-Diabetes to Diabetes. Prediabetes means that your blood sugar level is higher than normal but not yet high enough to be type 2 diabetes. Without lifestyle changes, people with prediabetes are very likely to progress to type 2 diabetes. If you have prediabetes, the long-term damage of diabetes — especially to your heart, blood vessels and kidneys — may already be starting.

Eating healthy foods, incorporating physical activity in your daily routine and maintaining a healthy weight can help bring your blood sugar level back to normal.

Classic signs and symptoms that suggest you’ve moved from prediabetes to type 2 diabetes include:

  • Increased thirst
  • Frequent urination
  • Fatigue
  • Blurred vision
