What exactly is the medical condition referred to as pre-diabetes?

You may have heard of a medical condition referred to as pre-diabetes. This basically means that a person is a couple steps away from having full-blown diabetes. Let's take a quick step back and first get a better understanding of what diabetes is. As you may have already heard, it's a condition that typically afflicts people who lead sedentary lives, and who consume far more sugar than they need to. However, not everybody who's diabetic falls into this category.

There are basically two types of diabetes. Type I diabetes is generally a condition where the pancreas does not produce any insulin at all. This condition is typically NOT associated with any type of lifestyle choice pertaining to health and wellness. On the other hand, type II diabetes, which happens to be the more prevalent form of the disease, typically arises in people who are not eating healthy, and who are not getting any exercise.

It is currently estimated that approximately 10 million people are living in the United States who don't even know they have diabetes, or alternatively, can be considered pre-diabetic. As mentioned a moment ago, anybody who has pre-diabetes is essentially only a couple of steps away from having a full-blown version of the illness.

If you're not somebody who's familiar with diabetes, this is basically an illness that's best described as the body's inability to properly regulate and deal with the sugar that's consumed while eating meals. By the way, we're not necessarily talking about raw sugar being eaten with every meal, but rather, the amount of carbohydrates contained within popular types of food which the body converts to sugar.

At the end of the day, if you're somebody who's been diagnosed as being pre-diabetic, then you definitely owe it to yourself to do as much as possible to start focusing on your overall health and wellness. That means eating food that is healthy, low on the glycemic index, as well as getting some exercise.
