If the results are not conclusive, it’s recommended that you have one of these tests repeated on another day. If you do have pre-diabetes, the first line of treatment is not medication but lifestyle changes. If you’re overweight, losing approximately 5 percent to 10 percent of your body weight and engaging in moderate-intensity physical activity, such as walking or swimming two and a half hours each week, may return your blood sugar level to normal.

It used to take decades to develop insulin resistance as adults put on extra pounds; that’s precisely why type 2 was commonly diagnosed in adults over the age of fifty. However, with so many children now severely overweight, that cycle time has been dramatically shortened. With the rate of obesity now three times higher than in the 1970s, it is likely that one in every three American children born in 2000 or thereafter will be diagnosed with diabetes in their lifetime, and it is anticipated that in the next fifteen years, the global incidence of type 2 diabetes in children will increase by up to 50 percent.

If the results are not conclusive, it’s recommended that you have one of these tests repeated on another day. If you do have pre-diabetes, the first line of treatment is not medication but lifestyle changes. If you’re overweight, losing approximately 5 percent to 10 percent of your body weight and engaging in moderate-intensity physical activity, such as walking or swimming two and a half hours each week, may return your blood sugar level to normal. Ask your health care provider to send you to a nutritionist or a diabetes clinic to learn more about healthful eating.
