According to the Diabetes Health Center, about 79 million Americans are at risk of Type II Diabetes. Wow, that’s a staggering number! Are you one of them? There are no symptoms in the pre-diabetes stage so it’s important to know what puts you at risk:
Family history of Type II Diabetes
Women with polycystic ovary syndrome
If you are overweight, especially if that weight lingers around your abdomen
If you have high cholesterol, high triglycerides, low HDL cholesterol (this is the good kind and you want it to be high), high LDL cholesterol (this is the bad kind and should be low)
Older people are at higher risk because our bodies don’t process sugar as well the older we become
Sedentary lifestyle also puts you at risk
Sadly, the typical American lifestyle puts you at risk, as this generally means eating a high calorie, low density nutrient diet, and more than likely, too much time spent on the couch or at a desk.
If you have any of the above, especially if you are over the age of 45, it’s time to get to your doctor and have some tests. Then get busy preventing this disease. It is preventable.
