Are we ALL pre-diabetic now? Type 2 diabetes symptoms are becoming more and more common. It's shocking but true that most people are overweight these days. If you've been overweight for many years, then yes, you could very well have type 2 diabetes already and you are very likely pre-diabetic. Ten percent of the world's population is now reported to have diabetes and the numbers are rising at an alarming rate.
I read recently that 80% of adults have high blood sugar which leads to type 2 diabetes. Yet for 90% of the people who have type 2 diabetes it is a disease that can be controlled and even reversed. Are you at risk?
These are all signs of high blood sugar but being overweight is the
most significant factor because it is such a clear indicator. You are
storing fat because your body is making too much insulin. This is the time to see a doctor and get a diagnosis.
There are other factors that can contribute to insulin resistance or type 2 diabetes symptoms. There may be a genetic propensity for high blood sugar. If diabetes of either type is in your family be aware.
Type 2 diabetes symptoms are more prevalent among African Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, Pacific Islanders and Asian Americans while type 1 occurs more often in Caucasians.

Because regular, vigorous activity increases insulin sensitivity it follows that little to no activity can increase the risk of insulin resistance. Muscle tissue uses glucose more efficiently and exercise builds muscle. Age is a factor just because people sometimes slow down and become more sedentary in middle age and also because as our cells age they are less sensitive.
You have to work harder with diet and physical exercise to remain healthy. And what you eat is critical! Managing type 2 diabetes means that you need to eat low glycemically. Low glycemic foods do NOT raise your blood sugar.
As reported in the medical journal Lancet in June 2011, 200 countries and regions were studied over the past 3 decades for blood sugar and diabetes trends. They concluded that nearly 10% of the world’s adults have diabetes and the prevalence of the disease is rising rapidly! Type 2 diabetes, a preventable condition, accounts for 90% of the cases.
This is shocking news and should make everyone wake up to the enormous costs both medically and personally of diabetes. Diabetes increases the risk of heart attack, kidney failure, blindness and infections to name just a few of it's complications. It is a global epidemic that could overwhelm the health care systems of many countries particularly in third world countries.
It is generally recognized that medical treatments for type 2 diabetes are not particularly effective although it's always best to see a doctor and get a diagnosis and advice. Ask your doctor about making changes in your lifestyle. Because what can make a positive difference and even reverse type 2 diabetes will be making the necessary changes in eating and exercising and losing fat permanently. You need to eat low glycemic foods and exercise every day.
These signs of high blood sugar are your warning. It is your lifestyle that determines whether or not you have type 2 diabetes symptoms!
Type 2 diabetes symptoms indicate a high blood sugar condition. YOU have to be the one to take action and change your lifestyle. This is especially important if you have metabolic syndrome symptoms.
Especially if you are obese, it is essential to see a doctor often. Medical complications can be very serious.
If you have any of these type 2 diabetes symptoms and you are overweight you need to take action. Your focus needs to be doing what you need to do to increase your insulin sensitivity because that is what will ultimately help you to balance your metabolism and hormones, stay slender and be healthy.
