A Diagnosis Of ‘Prediabetes’ Is A Warning Shot Across Your Bow

Posted |

‘Prediabetes’ is a medical condition, which isn’t yet full-blown Diabetes, but can turn into full-blown Diabetes within five to ten years unless preventive measures are taken. It is characterized by higher-than-normal blood-glucose (‘blood-sugar’) readings. A Prediabetic may nave no symptoms, and may indeed not even be aware that he or she is Prediabetic. Symptoms may, however, include

  • Becoming constantly more thirsty.
  • Needing to pee much more often.
  • Feeling constantly fatigued.
  • Having blurred vision.

There are several important risk factors for Prediabetics. If some of them apply to you, you need to schedule an appointment with your doctor or other medical professional to have your blood-glucose level checked. In seafarer vernacular, your possible Prediabetic condition is ‘a warning shot across your bow,’ warning you that your present lifestyle isn’t totally working. Here’s a partial list of Prediabetic risk factors:

  • Your Body Mass Index (BMI) exceeds 25, which often would imply that you’re overweight.
  • Your waistline circumference has become too large.
  • Your lifestyle is inactive.
  • You’re forty-five years old, or older.v
  • You have close relatives with diagnosed Type II Diabetes, or with Type 1.5 Diabetes,
    implying that you may have some genetic susceptibility to becoming Prediabetic.
  • Your ancestry is all, or in major part, African-American, Hispanic, Amerindian, Asian-
    American, or Pacific Islander.
  • You’re female, with a history of pregnancy and gestational Diabetes.
  • You’ve delivered a baby having a birth weight of nine pounds (4.1 kilograms) or more.
  • You’re female, and you have Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (POS).
  • Your blood pressure is consistently high.
  • Your ‘good’ cholesterol (High-Density Lipoprotein, aka HDL) level is too low — below 35
    milligrams per deciliter.
  • Your triglyceride level is above 250 milligrams per deciliter.

If you do get a blood-glucose-level test and it shows that you have too high a level of blood glucose, it’s a good idea to repeat the test — false positives are a common problem with this test. If your second test still shows that you’re in bad blood-glucose-level territory, then it’s time to start tweaking your lifestyle in some healthier directions:

  • Raise the proportion of vegetables, beans, and whole grains in your diet.
  • Cut down on simple carbohydrates, such as donuts and other sweet desserts.
  • Each meal should include quality carbohydrates, fats, and proteins.
  • Don’t cut out fruits, even though most are sugar-intensive. Eat fruit once to three times
    every day. Berries and kiwi fruit are somewhat lower in sugar. Drink less fruit juice.
  • Don’t ever skip breakfast.
  • Exercise, which will help you to lower your insulin resistance.
  • Try to lose some weight,
  • Pay more attention to getting enough sleep.

It isn’t well understood why some folks become Prediabetic. It is generally believed that the bodies of Prediabetic folks aren’t processing sugars, including the glucose in their bloodstreams, properly anymore. Obesity is one obvious issue; but some fat — particularly abdominal fat — is worse than fat located elsewhere. Most of the glucose in your bloodstream comes from carbohydrates; sugars are simple carbohydrates and enter your bloodstream almost immediately, whereas starches are complex carbohydrates and must first get broken down into simple carbohydrates before they can start contributing to your blood-glucose level — and that process of course takes longer. If you aren’t yet Prediabetic, your pancreas gland is producing the right amount of insulin to facilitate your muscles and your brain metabolizing your bloodstream glucose; but, when you become Prediabetic, this process gets out of whack, either because your pancreas isn’t producing enough insulin anymore, or because the rest of your body is becoming insulin-resistant.

The worst thing about having Prediabetes is its tendency to lead you on into Type II Diabetes, which in turn can subject you to other undesirable complications:

  • Too-high blood pressure.
  • Too-high ‘bad’ cholesterol (Low-Density Lipoprotein, LDL).
  • Heart disease.
  • Stroke.
  • Kidney ailments.
  • Partial or total loss of vision.
  • Amputations.

If you’ve been diagnosed as Prediabetic, that horror list should motivate you to try your best to avoid becoming a full-blown Diabetic. Probably you should look into CLE Holistic Health Naavudi; it’s a natural vegetarian blend of nine herbs, each of which has been used in traditional Asian medicinal practice for centuries or even for millennia. Some of these herbs are also often used to add flavoring, in various Asian cuisines. Each of these nine Naavudi-natural-diabetes-supplement/”>Naavudi ingredients is quite potent by itself, but when they are combined into Naavudi they synergistically operate as more than the sum of their separate contributions.

Naavudi can help folks suffering from high-blood glucose levels, from glycosuria (glucose in their urine, aka ‘sweet pee’), or even from Diabetes, to manage their blood-glucose levels. Modern medical research is now studying the effects of many of these ancient herbs, and some of them have passed certain clinical tests. CLE Holistic Health offers Naavudi in the form of 550-milligram vegetarian capsules. Like other CLE herbal products, it’s prepared from herbs that have been raised organically on CLE’s own farmland plots, and then harvested and processed and packaged using CLE’s proprietary methods, with CLE employees doing the work at every step of the way, in order to maintain excellent control of quality, purity, and uniformity. It’s not known to interact with prescription medicines, so you can try it out without otherwise changing your medicinal regimen. Doesn’t Naavudi sound like something that you should be looking into?
