Diabetes interferes with the body’s ability to produce or properly use insulin, a hormone that is essential for the proper use of the energy contained in the food we eat. You need insulin to process glucose, a sugar that your body requires for fuel. If your body is not producing or properly using insulin, you will have too much — or too little — glucose in your system. There is no cure for the condition, but diabetes can be controlled through diet or proper medication. Over time, diabetes can lead to life-threatening and debilitating complications. There are three main types of diabetes: Type I diabetes, Type II diabetes and Gestational Diabetes.
Prediabetes is a condition in which your blood sugar level is higher than normal, but not high enough to be classified as type II diabetes. However it shouldn’t be ignored as it usual indicates a risk of heart disease, stroke and blood sugar complications. Prediabetes does not have signs or symptoms but the following symptoms including excessive thirst and frequent urination should serve as a warning:
- Constant hunger
- Unexplained weight loss
- Weight gain
- Flu-like symptoms, including weakness and fatigue
- Blurred vision
- Slow healing of cuts or bruises
- Tingling or loss of feeling in hands or feet
- Recurring gum or skin infections
- Recurring vaginal or bladder infections
Prediabetes does not have to become type 2 diabetes. With healthy lifestyle changes, you can bring your blood sugar back to normal levels. Healthy lifestyle choices such as eating healthy foods, being more physically active and losing excess weight can help you prevent prediabetes and its progression to type 2 diabetes. Even if diabetes runs in your family, diet and exercise can help you prevent the disease.
