There are 57 million people in the United States who have pre-diabetes. Recent research has shown that some long-term damage to the body, especially the heart and circulatory system, may already be occurring during pre-diabetes.
Pre-diabetes is a serious medical condition that can be treated. The good news is that the recently completed Diabetes Prevention Program study conclusively has shown that people with pre-diabetes can prevent the development of type 2 diabetes by making changes in their diet and increasing their level of physical activity.
There are a few steps you can take to prevent this devastating disease. Bring yourself in for a free, ten minute screening at the Benewah Medical Center-Lifestyle Balance Program to see if you have pre-diabetes.
