About 88 million American adults—more than 1 in 3—have prediabetes. Of those with prediabetes, more than 84% don't know they have it. Prediabetes puts you at increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. What causes prediabetes and diabetes? Consistently eating foods high in sugar is a tell-tale sign a patient may be at risk for diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is all about fat in the liver and pancreas. This is usually caused by insulin resistance. Insulin resistance is the condition in which insulin becomes less effective, is characteristic of type 2 diabetes, and is often seen in obesity, sedentary people, and smokers. How do we know for sure? We will check a patient’s Hemoglobin A1C on a blood test and if the number is higher than 5.7, then we know the patient likely has prediabetes. If the number is 6.2 or higher, then we know the patient likely has diabetes. How do we fix it? The number one thing we have our patients do is change their diet. They must stop eating foods high in sugar if they want to reverse their diabetes. We also use a product called Sugar Control. Sugar Control Formula is designed to improve blood sugar levels.
