You might suffer with a deadly condition without even knowing it. A condition that could trigger a heart attack or stroke, and will likely shorten your life. I’m talking about prediabetes.
You may notice that something is not quite right with your health. You might feel fatigued and have the urge to sleep after a meal (even if it was a small meal). You struggle to lose weight and have digestive issues — like lactose intolerance or feeling bloated after meals. You may also have an unquenchable thirst, frequently urinate and struggle with blurred vision.
Well, believe it or not, these are all tell-tale signs that you might have prediabetes, which means that you have elevated blood sugar levels, but not high enough to be diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.
Silent but deadly
To be honest, the name prediabetes is a bit misleading — it makes it sound like this condition is not too serious. However, make no mistake, it should not be ignored. Pre-diabetics are 50 per cent more likely to have heart disease or stroke, and many of them develop full-blown type 2 diabetes within three to five years.
According to recent research on both sides of the pond, one-third of UK and American adults are pre-diabetic — and only about 10 per cent of them know about it.
So if you recognise the symptoms I mentioned earlier, here’s what you can do to step out of the danger zone.
Your first port of call is to get a blood sugar test, which is the only way to know for sure if you have prediabetes. The good news is that if you do get diagnosed as pre-diabetic, you still have time to turn things around. But before you let some doctor put you on prescription medication, it’s important to know that there are no approved drugs for pre-diabetes.
When doctors prescribe these drugs, they’re doing it “off label”. And diabetes drugs can trigger potentially life-threatening side effects like weight gain and damage to your heart — the very problems you’re trying to avoid.
The better plan is to have your doctor test you for deficiencies in your digestive and pancreatic enzymes. And there are simple digestive enzymes you can supplement with, like lipase, protease and amylase, that can improve your digestion and help support your pancreas.
