What to do after you’ve been diagnosed with Pre-Diabetes

Everyday Health explains that approximately 79 million American adults have pre-diabetes — a condition that’s poised on the precipice of full-blown diabetes, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports. “If you’re one of them, that means your blood glucose or A1c level is higher than normal but not quite high enough to be classified as type 2 diabetes.”

They offer some steps you can take to help stop pre-diabetes from progressing, and the possibility exists that these lifestyle changes can even return glucose levels to normal.

About UWF Center on Aging

The Center on Aging at the University of West Florida was established in the Fall of 2010 when the School of Psychological and Behavioral Sciences faculty along with assistance from Sponsored Research submitted a grant to the State University System Board of Governors in support of aging initiatives for Northwest Florida. Its mission is to improve the quality of life of aging adults through the application of science to address challenges associated with aging and to promote healthy aging, with an emphasis on prevention. This will be accomplished through inter-disciplinary and inter-professional efforts of basic and applied research, consultation, and partnerships with community agencies. Education and training, direct services to the aging population, and public awareness and understanding of the contributions and needs of elders will be primary objectives.
