What is prediabetes?

Our body needs protein to build and maintain tissues, good fats to function and thrive, and carbohydrates for energy. Food with carbohydrates such as bread, rice, and wheat enter our body's digestive system will quickly be converted to glucose. In a healthy person, when glucose in the blood stream rises the cells in the pancreas releases insulin and glucose are absorbed by the cells at the intestine wall then convert to energy or stored as fat in our body. In prediabetics, either the pancreas can't produce enough insulin on demand or the cells do not actively respond to the insulin in the bloodstream.
Depending on the level of glucose in the blood stream, if the fasting blood glucose test shows
1. Glucose level > 126 mg/dl : Diabetics
2. Glucose level between 111mg/dl-125 mg/dl : Pre-diabetes
Prediabetes is caused by unhealthy diets with high in saturated fat, smoking and excessive alcohol drinking. Therefore, understanding prediabetes is a very important issue for prediabetics, because with proper diets, quit smoking, controlled alcohol intake and exercises, prediabetes can be reverted or delayed.
