Q. The doctor told me that my
blood tests show that if I do not change my ways I will be diabetic no
later than next year, 2 years at the very most. I guess the only good
news is my cholesterol is low and my LDL and HDL are in the right limits.
I gave up smoking and just started throwing food in mouth instead. But it has been the
last few years that I have been fighting depression and weight gain, so
I've really got myself into a mess now. So, if you think your plan can
help, it's not like I don't know that what I eat is not good for me. A
lot of it is I am tired after working all day at the computer and the
stress of my job sometimes is overwhelming.
What do you suggest?
A. It certainly sounds like you are motivated!
Pre-Diabetes is unique in that weight loss, following a healthy diet to
support weight loss, and regular physical exercise can help to delay
onset of type 2 diabetes (National Diabetes Prevention Program).
