Changing a few things about your lifestyle can be what is needed to avoid progressing into full blown diabetes. Basically, changing what you eat and your activity level can help.
We Buy Diabetic Test Strips: During a routine health screening you may be told that you are prediabetic. If you don’t have regular health screenings, there are signs that can warn of a possible prediabetic condition. If these signs are present, consider having your blood glucose levels checked. Diabetes can be avoided in many cases with lifestyle changes that improve your body’s ability to process sugars.
If you don’t have regular health screenings, there are signs that can warn of a possible prediabetic condition. If these signs are present, consider having your blood glucose levels checked.
Some of those signs include being 45 or older, unlikely to be physically active, family history of diabetics, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, vascular disease, or belonging to ethnic groups including Latino, American Indian, African American, or Asian American. It’s a good idea for everyone to be screened but these factors make it more likely that a prediabetic condition could be present.
The screening is done using two different tests. The oral glucose test is done by ingesting high sugar content liquid before the blood draw. The fasting glucose version is done by taking a blood sample after you have not eaten within 8 to 12 hours of the test. These tests will show your body’s current ability to process sugars and the level of blood glucose present. When a prediabetic diagnosis comes back, you will be informed and can then begin to attempt the reversal process.

Changing simple things about your life can help to stave off the full blown onset of diabetes. You can walk for 30 minutes a day or get exercise that is similar. Walking is easy and something everyone can afford to do. There’s no expensive equipment necessary and no gym memberships or other obstacles that keep many from participating in exercise. Just get out of your chair and walk around. Work up to 30 minutes a day if you aren’t accustomed to any exercise at all. Just moving about more than usual will help your body to begin to lower your blood glucose.
If you are overweight, reduce the fatty foods you eat, incorporate more fresh fruits and vegetables into your diet, and cut out as much sugar as possible. This can be accomplished by making simple steps to begin with. Substitute extra virgin olive oil to cook your popcorn or eggs instead of butter. Ask your health care provider for help with specific ideas and help in monitoring and recording your progress. It may be suggested that you monitor your blood sugar with a blood glucose monitor and diabetic test strips.
