Prediabetes: Are You at Risk?


Borderline diabetes, also called prediabetes, is a condition that develops before a person gets Type 2 diabetes. It’s also known as impaired fasting glucose or glucose intolerance. It basically means your blood sugar levels are higher than normal, but they’re not quite high enough to be considered a sign of diabetes.

Having prediabetes doesn’t mean you’ll definitely develop diabetes. However, it is already a warning. People with prediabetes have a 5 to 15 times higher risk for type 2 diabetes than someone with normal blood sugar levels.


Any of these risk factors can increase your chances of developing prediabetes:

 

Prediabetes is a silent condition, so getting a regular wellness check-up is important for early detection. If left unchecked for a very long time, it may develop into Type 2 diabetes.

Type 2 diabetes has several causes: genetics and lifestyle are the most important ones. It can be hereditary but that doesn’t mean that if your mother or father has (or had) type 2 diabetes, you’re guaranteed to develop it. Instead, it means that you have a greater chance of developing it. While we may not be completely in control of our genetics, we can delay the on-set of type 2 diabetes or increase the probability of preventing it through lifestyle change.

THE POWER OF LIFESTYLE CHANGE

Studies on Diabetes Prevention looked into how lifestyle changes could help prevent diabetes. The findings should give people at risk of diabetes a lot of hope. With modest weight loss and exercise, study participants reduced their risk of developing diabetes by 58 percent over three years.

The power of healthy food and exercise habits can’t be overstated. Take charge of your health by focusing on simple dietary and lifestyle changes.

Eat healthier

Focus on whole foods and complex carbohydrates. Pass on the simple sugars, like those in processed food. Those can raise blood sugar without providing wholesome nutrition.

Move more

Aim for 150 minutes of exercise each week. If you do not have any form of exercise, start with brisk walking.

Lose weight

If you’re overweight, losing weight can reduce your risk. A healthier diet and increasing your activity level should help you achieve this goal.

Medications

If you do have prediabetes, your doctor may even prescribe a medication to help keep blood glucose levels in check.

Health conditions before his Cohen journey:

Borderline Diabetic, sleep apnea, high cholesterol, arrhythmia and fatty liver. Weighed 233 lbs.

Lifestyle:

Due to his arrhythmia, he was not allowed to participate in strenuous exercise program or routine. He used to tell his mother that he’s okay with the way he was despite the burden of multiple health conditions.

Experience with the Cohen Program:

When he decided it was time for him to change his eating habits, he enrolled in the Cohen Program. He found it a convenient way to lose weight because he could not exercise. Despite the multiple opportunities for him to deviate as he was in the food business, he decided to stick to the program. His decision to adapt a healthy lifestyle paid off by losing 80lbs in 5 months*.

Health condition AFTER the Cohen Program:

His sugar level and liver function have normalized. He feels lighter, more alert and active.

Now he has given away his old clothes and continues to strategize on ways to maintain his weight because he understands that the Cohen program is not just a diet – it’s a healthy lifestyle.
