1 in 3 Americans Has Pre-Diabetes!
Our lives are crazy enough!
Did you know the underlying fire in your bodies’ is actually leading to more craziness in your home? You thought it was your mother in law, nope, well maybe.
What is really affecting your families? Could it be insulin resistance or pre-diabetes?
According to the CDC, 1 out of every 3rd American has pre-diabetes, and 9 out of 10 don’t know they have it. – Tweet this!
Are you completely freaked out?
What are symptoms?
Fatigue, irritability, brain fog/memory and concentration issues, weight gain around the midsection, sugar crashes in the middle of the day, carbohydrate craving, and inability to lose weight; missing a meal can lead to being cranky and irritable, weak, and tired. After meals one feels drugged and sleepy; you feel that you are addicted to carbohydrates; you have hypoglycemic attacks, poor sex drive, acne, increased hair growth, acanthosis nigricans (skin becomes dark and thick, in the folds and the creases like back of the neck, groin, and armpits), other symptoms are infertility, and cysts; you have difficulty losing weight, and you gain weight easily and aggressively. Perhaps, you are experiencing irregular menstrual periods or have a history of PCOS or infertility, you could be insulin resistant. Sound familiar?
You need to be super cautious if you have a family history of diabetes, hypoglycemia or alcoholism, high blood pressure, heart disease, and type two diabetes.
Let me scare you a little more. These symptoms can be present in very young children and are constantly overlooked, and we are seeing more and more of it daily. It gets worse! I know how could it possibly get worse? Right!!
Most doctors are not taught to look for it…. – Tweet this!
I Know, I am as mad as you, as I had most these symptoms and no one could tell me what was wrong!! But guess what! There’s a happy ending…there’s a solution…what? I can’t tell you everything now… see you next time!
You are welcome!
