Early Signs of Diabetes


Early signs of diabetes can help you avoid major health problems if you know what to look for. Learn the first signs of diabetes now and find out how to potentially reverse the global trend of developing type 2 diabetes.

Early diabetes is also called pre diabetes or impaired glucose tolerance.

Early Signs of Diabetes

Before someone reaches the point of having type 2 diabetes, they will nearly always have pre diabetes symptoms first.

You may have pre diabetes if you have a high blood sugar level... between 100 and 125 mg/dL... too high to be in the normal range and too low to be considered type 2 diabetic (above 126 mg/dL).

An estimated 57 million people in the United States have pre diabetes. And 50% of these people are expected to progress to type 2 diabetes. These are staggering numbers and it shows you just how big this problem is.

Studies have shown that during pre diabetes, major damage is already being done to the body... especially the cardiovascular system and the heart.

 

Symptoms can be mild... or non-existent


Early diabetes symptoms can be mild... or not exist at all.

ARE YOU AT RISK?

Take the Diabetes Risk Test to help you determine your risk of developing pre-diabetes or type 2 diabetes.

According to the American Diabetes Association, nearly 6 million people in the United States have diabetes, but they don't know that they have the disease.

Unfortunately, once type 2 diabetes is diagnosed, serious health problems may have already started. Remember though... it can still be controlled successfully.

This disease is nothing to play around with, so it's important to identify the early signs of diabetes. After reading through the signs and symptoms, read through the rest of the site so I can help you with a plan to prevent damage to your body and regain your health.


Early Signs of Diabetes


Pre diabetes may not have any signs or symptoms; however, it's important to keep an eye out for the typical type 2 diabetes symptoms, such as...

  • Headaches
  • Impotence
  • Increased thirst
  • Increased appetite
  • Unusual weight loss or weight gain
  • Increased urination
  • Blurred vision
  • Dry mouth
  • Slow healing sores or infections
  • Fatigue (tired or weak)
  • Tingling or numbness in the feet or hands
  • Change in blood sugar levels


If you have any of these early diabetes symptoms, contact your doctor or health care provider.

Also, take the Diabetes Risk Test to see where you stand.

 

It's Not Too Late...


According to the American Diabetes Association, results from the recent Diabetes Prevention Program study showed that pre diabetic patients were able to prevent type 2 diabetes by exercising and making changes to their diet.

This study also showed that some medications helped pre diabetes, but exercise and diet worked better!

The study went on to show that just 30 minutes of moderate exercise each day plus a 5-10% loss in body weight, produced a 58% reduction in diabetes!
