Interesting facts on Diabetes…

Pre Diabetes:

Close to 80 million people are Pre-Diabetic. Most don’t know it.

A person is Pre-Diabetic when blood glucose levels are higher than normal but not high enough to be Type II Diabetes. People with pre diabetes are more likely to develop Type II Diabetes and may have some problems from Diabetes already.

The American Diabetes Association states research that shows you can lower your risk for type 2 diabetes by 58% simply by:

1. Losing 7% of your body weight (or 15 pounds if you weigh 200 pounds) and
2. Exercising moderately (such as brisk walking) 30 minutes a day, five days a week.

However reaching a healthy body mass index (BMI under 24) will reduce your overall risk for heart disease, some cancers and diabetes.

If you are in the Everett area, over weight and concerned about being Pre-Diabetic we can help. Call (425) 348-5207 to learn more.
