HOW TO BY JEANNIE NUSS
Moving-even a little-can help
ward off diabetes.
You can beat this condition before
it becomes diabetes and causes
serious health problems
One in 3 American adults has
86 million of us. And having
prediabetes, which means that your blood
sugar is higher than normal but not high
enough to merit a diabetes diagnosis, comes
with serious health risks.
"People with prediabetes have a risk for
developing type 2 diabetes, heart disease
and stroke," says Pamela Allweiss, MD,
an endocrinologist with the Center for
Disease Control and Prevention's Division
of Diabetes Translation.
