If you don’t know what pre-diabetes is let me explain. Pre-diabetes is a condition that puts you at a significantly higher risk of developing full type 2 diabetes. It means you have impaired glucose regulation whether it be from impaired glucose tolerance or impaired fasting glucose.
This is a ticking time bomb for your future healthcare costs. Right now the World Health Organization states type 2 diabetes affects over 220 million people and the repercussions of high blood sugar kills 3.4 million people every year.
By 2025 it is expected that there will be an increase of 160 million people diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes to 380 million and another 418 million people diagnosed with pre-diabetes.
To better explain why this pre-diabetic population is advancing to full on Type 2 diabetes so quickly here are some stats. Those with Isolated impaired glucose tolerance have 5x the risk to develop Type 2 diabetes. Those who only have isolated Impaired fasting glucose have 7x the risk of developing diabetes.
What is your risk factor if you have both?
Researchers writing in Diabetes & Metabolic Syndrome: Clinical Research and Reviews are quoted as saying
“The percentage of population who are pre-diabetic, with IFG or IGT is much greater than that of diabetic patients and is persistently increasing.”
Let’s add more problems to your plate when you are diagnosed as pre-diabetic.
You are also at a high risk for cardiovascular disease including stroke, coronary artery disease and peripheral vascular disease.
Common characteristics of pre-diabetics are significant weight gain especially central stomach area obesity, dyslipidemia, increased HbA1c and a more sedentary lifestyle.
Numerous studies have found that obesity, poor diet and lack of exercise are major contributing factors to this “ticking time bomb” we call pre-diabetes.
So you have an opportunity to decrease and potentially eliminate your risk of ever developing pre-diabetes which then most certainly will lead to Type 2 diabetes.
Studies have shown that lifestyle changes such as changing your dietary habits can reverse the pre-diabetic path.
Reducing sugar, eating healthy meals that include more fiber and protein are just a few ways you can destroy this ticking time bomb.
You have a lot of options to stop this progression, but the most important option you have is yourself. Do you want to be one of those 471 million with pre-diabetes or do you want to be in the group that reverses this time bomb?
