Are there certain health risks associated with being pre-diabeteic?

Many people who have been diagnosed as being pre-diabetic are concerned about whether or not there any health risks associated with this condition. Needless to say, the biggest risk associated with being prediabetic is that a person will NOT take the necessary steps to help ensure that full-blown diabetes doesn't develop.

Some of the quick and easy things a person can do to mitigate the risks of developing diabetes is to watch what they're eating. This basically means that you're going to make an effort not to consume more than 75 grams of carbohydrate per meal. The reason why this is important is because the amount of carbohydrates you consume during a meal will ultimately be translated into sugar within your body. And of course, as you may already know, it's a this sugar flowing through your veins that causes problems.

Another health risk associated with being pre-diabetic is that you may not necessarily realize just how dangerous it can be to have diabetes. All it takes is a little bit of research to quickly see just how significant the risk is to people who develop diabetes. For example, it's not uncommon for people who don't take care of themselves top ultimately have their arms and legs surgically hacked off. That admittedly sounds quite gruesome, and shocking, but if it helps wake you up to the reality of the danger posed by diabetes, then it's well worth using that type of language. And the thing is, it's true. You can see the photos on the Internet for yourself.

At the end of the day, you need to start making decisions that are in your best interest. You've got to prioritize your health and wellness. You have to be willing to cut back on drinking sugary soft drinks, eating tons of candy bars, and leading an otherwise sedentary lifestyle. Try to start eating healthier, try to start getting more exercise, and realize that the biggest risk associated with being pre-diabetic is that you'll simply go on living your life as normal and wake up one day with full-blown diabetes.
