I am still getting over the initial shock. The innocent looking letter arrived from my doctor on April 11th. I quickly opened it, read through it and everything looked pretty normal. Test results … all negative. Except one. My Hemoglobin A1c was elevated. It is a blood test that is used to monitor the control of blood sugars.
It indicated that I had type 2 diabetes.
I had two choices. Do nothing and the insulin shots and medication would soon follow. Or IMMEDIATELY change my eating habits, exercise and permanently change my lifestyle.
Listen to today’s show and find out what I did next.
What is Type 2 Diabetes?
Diabetes is a problem with your body that causes blood glucose (sugar) levels to rise higher than normal. This is also called hyperglycemia. Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes.
If you have type 2 diabetes your body does not use insulin properly. This is called insulin resistance. At first, your pancreas makes extra insulin to make up for it. But, over time it isn't able to keep up and can't make enough insulin to keep your blood glucose at normal levels.
