Smorgasbord Health Column – Family Health A-Z -Pre-Diabetes – A billion at risk of diabetes worldwide by Sally Cronin

If you are a little overweight, live a sedentary lifestyle and eat a lot of processed foods then this could be you…These figures below which Sally has quoted have scared me…I don’t eat a lot of highly processed foods BUT I have slipped on the exercise front over the last year and I notice it….After this it certainly made me think and for the next 6 weeks, I am going to be eating mainly low glycemic foods and stick to the guidelines Sally has suggested…I will also be increasing my daily exercise…#recommended read...

As of 2020, there were 88 million Americans who were pre-diabetic and are at very high risk of developing full-blown diabetes and joining the over 34 million who already have the disease. CDS Diabetes

According to the World Health Authority, it is estimated that there are 422 million people worldwide with diabetes. If the ratio of those with pre-diabetes to those with the disease in the US is common globally it would mean that there are over a billion men and women and children worldwide who are at risk of developing this very dangerous disease. Whilst Type 1 is genetic and is approximately 10% of cases, Type 2 is predominantly lifestyle and diet-related and can usually be reversed. If one in seven has this pre-condition globally, it is likely that someone in your family will develop diabetes.

Unfortunately, it is the many millions who are undiagnosed that are at the greatest risk.
