Signs and Symptoms of Pre-Diabetes

There is a great article on About.com highlighting pre-diabetes. The article explains what pre-diabetes is and states that “the cells in your body are becoming resistant to insulin and your blood glucose levels are higher than they should be. Since the levels aren’t as high as they would be if you had Type 2 diabetes, the term “pre-diabetes” is used.”

The risk factor for pre-diabetes are the same as they are for type 2 diabetes. It is very important to get regular check-ups from your doctor as there are seldom signs or symptoms for this type of diabetes.

Denver Broncos Quaterback Living with Diabetes

The Quarterback for the Denver Broncos will have more challenges than just putting points on the board this year. In late April, Jay Cutler was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Cutler said couragously that in no way will his football career be jeopardized. Cutler goes on to bravely state that diabetes will have minimal effect on his life as well as he plans to deal with his condition. He is just grateful that it was diagnosed before it was too late. His dietary habits have changed for the better and he plans on wearing during practice until he gets back up to his playing weight and the diabetes stabilizes. Cutler’s dedication to not let the diagnoses affect his play is something we can all look forward to seeing. We admire your courage and attitude Jay.

“Obviously, this is a serious disease,” Jay said. “It’s not going to change me on the field. I’ll make lifestyle changes. But I’ll probably be a better quarterback this year than I was last year.”

Mix up your workout

Close to 80% of the diabetic population in America is obese. There is no question as to whether or not a workout routine will help most diabetics. The only question is what kind of routine should diabetics do? Will diabetics benefit more from weight lifting, running, circuit training, or aerobics. Personally, I think everyone can benefit from a proper Kung Fu workout, but the thing about martial arts is that they are not for everyone. Whether you’re a runner or a weight lifter, the best type of workout is one that mixes all types of exercise. Weights can add a bit of muscle and running can increase your lung capacity as well as endurance. The bottom line with working out is to try to fit in any kind of exercise every day. Although it is best to mix it up, working out period is a plus.

Diabetes Resources

There are many great resources for diabetic information that can be found on the web. You can even read up on some blogs of some people living with diabetes. I find the blogs particularly useful because you can read all about the experiences of those diagnosed with diabetes. One of the best resources I have seen is the American Diabetes Association website. There is one page in particular that is especially useful is the page all about diabetes. The page talks about the different types of diabetes and all of the resources available on the site such as diabetic symptoms, diabetic myths, and much more. If you or someone you know has diabetes, this page is a must.
