Hi Activity

I am sorry to be slow but I haven’t a clue why you do that (what is the purpose - is it like a filling system?) nor do I understand how you do it! I mean where is “add a topic”?

Thank you for the reply!😀 I haven’t had a chance, yet to add the topic to DRWF. That will have to be done soon. It’s going to be the first topic for the group to use.

Go ahead, please and get some sleep. I have sent a message to you earlier. No worries!😀👍

Hi Leah, this is great as 'we' need to help prevent diabetes and reverse obesity in the first instance and at street level.

This new Topic section can be used to collate all relevant info and recipes, so it's very beneficial for everyone.

Thank you,

Jerry. 😊

"What is meant by ‘prediabetes’?

Prediabetes is used to describe people at risk of diabetes because they have impaired glucose metabolism, but who do not meet the criteria for diabetes and often have no noticeable symptoms.

It is a term that was introduced by the American Diabetes Association (ADA), but has not been accepted by other health organisations, such as the World Health Organization (WHO).

It may be defined as:

impaired glucose tolerance

above normal glucose blood concentration after fasting

above normal glycated haemoglobin (a marker of average blood glucose concentration)

Supporters of the term’s usage argue that it allows doctors to identify high-risk patients, so they can be treated in order to prevent diabetes from occurring."

The question is how do one find this out in a day to day living?

Is blood glucose is the only way to find this out?

You can always test to see if you (in general) are at risk of becoming Diabetic. A person can get a test kit and test one day a week or if they are having symptoms of highs/lows (drinking more water, hungry, shaking, etc.).
