Prediabetic?

Recent media reports say Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard got a potentially life threatening diagnosis during his season with the Los Angeles Lakers last year.

According to a physician working with the team’s medical staff, Howard was consuming “the equivalent of 24 Hershey bars a day” because of all the candy and glucose-rich carbonated soda he was drinking, according to Yahoo Sports.

Dr. Cate Shanahan, described her shock at Howard’s alarming levels of glucose in his system, telling media that she became concerned because Howard’s sluggish play and blood work “reminded me of patients who have pre-diabetes and neurological problems because of how sugar impacts the nervous system.” A subsequent blood test revealed frightening amounts of glucose in his system.

According to experts at the Mayo Clinic, prediabetes means that your blood sugar level is higher than normal, but it’s not yet high enough to be classified as type 2 diabetes. Still, without intervention, prediabetes is likely to become type 2 diabetes in 10 years or less. And, if you have prediabetes, the long-term damage of diabetes — especially to your heart and circulatory system — may already be starting.

The exact cause of pre diabetes is unknown but excess fat — especially abdominal fat — and inactivity also seem to be important factors in the development of pre diabetes. Contact your doctor if you are concern about developing diabetes.
