Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), an estimated 86 million Americans have pre.diabetes. That's 51 percent of adults over 65 and only 11 percent know they have it. Prediabetes is a health condition where blood glucose levels are higher than normal, but not high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. Research shows that every year 11 percent of people with prediabetes, who don't change their ways and live a healthier lifestyle may develop type 2 diabetes within 3 years. Some Prediabetes risk factors are: age 45 or older, family history (parent or sibling), high blood pressure, sedentary lifestyle, and weight. Some tips to reduce diabetes risk are: weight loss, limiting foods that are high in fat sugar and white flour; eating more whole grains, fruits, & veggies; increasing physical activity, and limiting sodium to 1,500 mg per day. If you suspect you have prediabetes and want to gain some knowledge, take the American Diabetes Association Risk Test at http://www If you are at high risk, follow up with your heatthcare provider.
