Prediabetes, the leading risk factor for type 2 diabetes, afflicts approximately 84 million American adults. And the latest numbers from the CDC suggest that nearly 1 in 3 adults currently have either prediabetes or diabetes. These are alarming numbers, and finding out that you are that one out of three can be even more alarming. Shock, denial, and confusion are not uncommon reactions. But there is a flip side to learning you have prediabetes. It’s scary, but it also means you’ve caught the condition just in time, before it’s too late.
Prediabetes does not mean you will develop diabetes. There are actions you can take now to improve your health. The American Diabetes Association’s new book, Prediabetes: A Complete Guide: Your Lifestyle Reset to Stop Prediabetes and Other Chronic Illnesses (American Diabetes Association, May 2018, ISBN: 978-1-580-40674-1, $16.95), will reveal to you in detail what these actions are and empower you to find the healthy eating and lifestyle changes that work best for you to help you achieve your health goals.
Written by Jill Weisenberger, a registered dietitian nutritionist, certified diabetes educator, certified health and wellness coach, and author of the American Diabetes Association’s best-selling book Diabetes Weight Loss?Week by Week, this comprehensive guide will lead you through dozens of concrete steps you can take to reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes and other lifestyle-related chronic diseases.
Taking an individualized approach to your lifestyle “reset,” this book will allow you to choose your own path to wellness, help you gain a greater sense of well-being, boost your confidence in your ability to maintain a healthful lifestyle, and potentially even help you reverse prediabetes and avoid type 2 diabetes and other chronic illnesses.
