Pre-Diabetes Threatens This Vital Organ?!
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: You don’t need to have type 2 diabetes to be at risk for its consequences.
Pre-diabetes is when your blood sugar levels are higher than they should be, but you haven’t yet crossed into full-blown diabetes. While it may not sound so bad — the condition is a double threat.
- First, it’s silent. You won’t know you have it unless you get tested.
- Second, it’s not taken seriously enough. Too many people—doctors included—refuse to recognize how damaging it can be.
But it’s time to change that.
Because a new study just revealed that even pre-diabetes could be devastating for this vital organ.
The study included more than 15,000 patients who underwent echocardiograms and had their HbA1c levels measured.
An echocardiogram is an ultrasound that checks the structure and function of your heart. It’s used to diagnose or monitor heart disease. And the HbA1c is a simple blood test that measures your average blood sugar levels over three months.
The researchers found that people with pre-diabetes are more likely to suffer from structural heart disease and heart failure than those with normal blood glucose levels.
The higher the blood sugar, the higher the risk.
Ultimately, diabetics had the highest risk… but pre-diabetics weren’t far behind.
When you have heart failure, it means that your heart isn’t strong enough to pump as much blood as your body needs. The harder your heart works to do its job, the weaker it becomes.
You can become short of breath, develop swelling in your legs, and have organ failure.
About 50 percent of people diagnosed with heart failure won’t live five more years.
To make matters worse, pre-diabetes affects a LOT of people. Current estimates are that more than 470 million worldwide will have pre-diabetes by 2030.
Fortunately, you can take steps right now to ensure you’re not one of them.
- Lose weight
- Cut out added sugar, refined carbs, and ultra-processed foods
- Quit smoking
- Sit less
- Increase your physical activity exercising for 30 minutes at least three times a week
Get started TODAY and you can slash your risk of ever developing pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes.
P.S. Type 2 diabetes often starts as a “silent disease,” quietly doing damage to small blood vessels, kidneys, eyes, and nerves. Your blood sugar could ALREADY be running rampant without you knowing it. Click here to learn five early warning signs.
