Is Your Blood Sugar Trying To Tell You Something?

I posted about this topic earlier HERE, but the information is worth repeating.

Fasting blood glucose of 100-125 is considered pre-diabetic. It stands to reason that even numbers approaching 100 are less desirable than numbers in the 70's and 80's. The vast majority of people with prediabetes do not know they have the condition, according to CDC research. Just 7% of people with prediabetes are aware of their condition. 79 million Americans—35% of adults aged 20 years and older—have prediabetes. Half of all Americans aged 65 years and older have prediabetes.

You can monitor and study how your body is handling sugar with a $15 glucose monitor from WalMart!!

Aren't you at least curious??

What is prediabetes?
People with prediabetes have blood sugar levels that are higher than normal, but not high enough for a diagnosis of diabetes. They are at higher risk for developing type 2 diabetes and other serious health problems, including heart disease, and stroke. Without lifestyle changes to improve their health, 15% to 30% of people with prediabetes will develop type 2 diabetes within 5 years!!
