Seems like every time you turn around someone you know is being diagnosed with pre-diabetes. Either they have been told they have impaired glucose tolerance or insulin resistance; you are not alone if you have struggled to understand these terms.
Pre-diabetes means that blood sugars are higher than normal, but not high enough to be in the diabetic range; however the person is at very high risk for developing diabetes. If one is diagnosed at this stage, with lifestyle changes, such as more exercise and healthy eating habits, it is completely reversible.
Make a commitment to get moving and making healthy food choices to prevent diabetes. Diagnosing pre-diabetes in a timely manner really matters, so you can be informed and knowledgeable about making better and healthier lifestyle choices.
