Prediabetic? Do you know?

I am not a huge Dr. Oz fan, but he does have folks thinking about their health, which is great.  I just found this video which is a must see for everyone.  In it he briefly explains the general symptoms of Prediabetes and a few steps you can take to successfully avoid Diabetes.

One additional thing he does not mention and that is the HbA1c test – it’s simple and inexpensive.  Get one done.  That test is the gold standard to determine if you have Prediabetes.  And, if you do, don’t despair.  As Dr. Oz points out with a change in diet and a bit of exercise, you have a 90% chance of beating it.

A 90% success rate!  Why wouldn’t you do it?

As always, thank you for reading (and watching).  Do something kind for another today.

  1. This is a very interesting post and video! We tend to focus on readers who have already been diagnosed and have started treatment but we are considering including more pre-diabetic info very soon. Thanks for the post!
