Patient discussion about prediabetes

Q. I have pre-diabetes, and am checking my glucose daily in the morning. I vary between 100 and 123. Normal

A. Sidney, this is the perfect time to start loosing weight. i'm guessing that this is the reason that your glucose levels are high. your Pancreas cells are doing a big effort in order to excrete insulin. i bet they started dying one by one because of that effort. loosing weight will save your Pancreas and you from insulin shots for the rest of your life.
