Type 2 diabetes is a VERY serious condition that left untreated can lead to death. Finding out early is the best way to attack this killer.
Don't wait for the test to change your habits.
According to the CDC, if you have prediabetes, with blood sugar levels that are higher than normal, research shows that you can lower your risk for type 2 diabetes by 58% by:
Losing 7% of your body weight (or 15 pounds if you weigh 200 pounds)
Exercising moderately (such as brisk walking) 30 minutes a day, five days a week
Don't worry if you can't get to your ideal body weight. Losing even 10 to 15 pounds can make a huge difference.
If you are prediabetic or have type 2 diabetes, work with your health care provider immediately to get any medical treatment you need to manage blood sugar.
A healthy lifestyle can help you manage diabetes and reduce the risk of complications.
A dear family member at age 47 died unexpectedly from complications related to type 2 diabetes. He was unaware that the symptoms he had were indicators of the disease. He was undiagnosed and completely unaware that he had type 2 diabetes. Despite the hospital’s efforts to save him through insulin and daily dialysis, he died 10 days later. Our mission is to help others catch it early, and learn how to manage diabetes rather than facing a loss of ability or life.
