Pre-Diabetes and the Type 2 Diabetes Struggle is Real— You Don’t Have to Manage It Alone

Pre-Diabetes and the Type 2 Diabetes Struggle is Real— You Don’t Have to Manage It Alone

By DAWN C. HILL, DNP, ARNP, CDE Central Florida Health Care

IF YOU ARE wondering whether or not you should be screened for Type 2 diabetes, then ask yourself these questions:

• Am I aged 40 years or older?

• Am I overweight?

• Do I have high blood pressure or cholesterol?

• Do I have a family history of diabetes?

• Am I African American, Hispanic, American Indian or Asian?

• Do I have a history of diabetes occurring during pregnancy?

• Did I deliver a baby weighing more than 9 pounds?

Answering “yes” to any of these means you should be screened. Does it mean you are at higher risk? Not necessarily, but pre-diabetes is a very real risk to your current and future health. If you’re not sure how to prevent prediabetes, then don’t hesitate to schedule
a consultation.
