A recent study found that one in four American teens may have prediabetes, meaning they are on the verge of developing type 2 diabetes, or are already diabetic. Type 2 diabetes was once known as adult onset diabetes because it was virtually unheard of in children. Unfortunately, even teenagers are no longer safe from this growing epidemic. These teens join the estimated 59.7 million Americans 20 y…ears and older who have prediabetes.
Prediabetes puts you at risk for developing type 2 diabetes, heart disease and stroke. It doubles the risk of death due to heart attack. We’ve all heard of these risk factors, but it’s possible to have prediabetes without even knowing it.
