Why I Think the term "Pre-Diabetes" is a Misnomer
Tuesday, January 14, 2020
From what I've seen from the reaction of friends and acquaintances who've heard the term "pre-diabetes" at their doc visit, I see them relieved rather than put on alert. I think the term gives people a false sense that they are in the safe zone rather than giving them a sense of urgency to make changes. Many have gone on to have diabetes as a result.
I think when a body is pre-diabetic, it is already in the danger zone and should be taken seriously instead of as a safe zone. I've been amazed at the variety of doctor care of those who became diabetic. Some docs are helpful and proactive, while others don't give any guidance or supervision of how to proceed, leaving the diabetic floundering about what to do next.
I'm super-pleased with how the paint project turned out. He'll be back early this morning for a couple of hours to complete the patio slab.
Wishing all a happy, healthy day.
