AS a Diabetes advocate I have promised to try and spread the word that each year the number of new type two diabetics increases.Why mostly because we ignore the middle aged spread in our forties , fifties and let our bodies get too any fat cells.Those extra fat c ells will impede insulin on its job of ushering in sugar tnto our muscles where we need it for energy and instead drops it into our blood stream. There it does not belong and over time it will injure our organs. The test is simple and painless but vital ln our effort to catch it pre diabetes and ward off getting it But its no longer a death threat besides insulin we have many new and great diabetic meds for type two diabetics. One old standby that I take because it has few side effects metformin is used now to treat pre diabetics.Sometimes thus we can help people to avoid becoming type two diabetics. Most diabetics these days led f ull, happy lives as they have all the tools needed to live wth diabetes and prosper and live great lives.

That is good advice. I was diagnosed a few years ago, but by changing how I ate, the doctor says I don't have it now.

I think that it is great that you do this. I have a check up each year and am about ready to get in for mine. I have been told by my doctor that one more time I have a 22 or higher on the test and I will be seen as a diabetic. I have made very slow strides in trying to change my eating habits and hope that I can stay away from this.

Great topic. We do need to be aware of our bodies and get those tests done.
