Pre-Diabetes: Let’s Make It a Short Journey!

Pre-diabetes is indicated by an abnormal blood sugar test, but levels are not high enough for type 2 diabetes. Pre-diabetes is a warning for lifestyle changes to delay or prevent type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is a lifelong commitment to health, medication, insulin, monitoring glucose levels. Health complications can result in cardiac, eye, nerve and kidney problems if a diabetes condition is not well cared for. (American Diabetes Association, 2021)

My days and nights started to fill with wild thoughts of anxiety-filled questions with no answers.

  • Diabetes?
  • Sugar? White or brown?
  • Lose weight?
  • No more carbohydrates?
  • Stop eating my favorite foods?
  • Start insulin, needles?
