Prediabetes is a condition where your blood sugar levels are higher than normal, but not high enough to be diagnosed as type 2 diabetes. The body works hard to keep blood sugar (glucose) levels within a healthy range. When glucose starts to exceed these levels the body has to work even harder to try to restore balance. I think of this as 'fight' mode, a great deal of energy is being utilised in fighting instead of being used to repair and keep you feeling well and healthy.
If you've been diagnosed with prediabetes you may be feeling tired, sluggish, find it hard to concentrate throughout the day and have high levels of hunger and cravings. Raised inflammation levels could be leading to aches and pains and making it difficult for you to have the energy you need to make the most of every day.
These symptoms have been your body's way of telling you it's not feeling good, that something is out of balance. A diagnosis of prediabetes is your body talking a little louder asking you to help. Therefore it can be viewed as an opportunity to take action and give your body what it needs before prediabetes progresses to diabetes.
A diagnosis of prediabetes is a nudge reminding you to reassess your lifestyle choices and take steps towards healthier habits.
Fortunately we have really good knowledge about the most effective ways to bring blood glucose levels down into a non prediabetic range. To turn your health around and restore balance. With this comes more energy, better sleep, improved focus and often a reduced waist circumference.
