Anyone who has ever seen diabetes up close and personal knows just how merciless this disease is. If there’s anything any of us can do to lessen our odds of getting diabetes, we’d be clowns not to.
You don’t look remotely like a clown to me, so I’m sure you’ll keep reading.
From the American Diabetes Association:
If you’re not already familiar with it, people with prediabetes are on the road to developing type 2 diabetes and are also at increased risk of other serious health problems like heart disease and stroke.
And anyone can develop prediabetes – it affects men and women of all races and ethnicities. It doesn’t care what you do for a living, how many kids you have, or where you live…
The good news is that the sooner people who are diagnosed with prediabetes take action, the more likely they will be to reverse high blood glucose levels and prevent or delay the possible onset of type 2 diabetes.
The key is to find out if you are at risk as early as possible – take the short, online test right now.
Unfortunately, almost 90% of people with prediabetes don’t even know they have it. Which is pretty darn scary… That is why it is so important to raise awareness about prediabetes – knowing can help people take steps to prevent or delay developing type 2 diabetes.
Find out if YOU have pre-diabetes right now – it takes less than one minute of your time.
I hope you don’t have prediabetes. But if you do, please don’t wait! Schedule an appointment with your doctor ASAP.
