new guidelines for PREVENTING type 2 diabetes
The Amer Diabetes Assoc and the Nat'l Institutes of Health are now promoting their new guidelines for PREVENTING type 2 diabetes.
About 16 million Americans have "pre-diabetes"...the new term for patients whose blood glucose is higher than normal, but not high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes.
Most of these patients will develop diabetes within 10 years. They also have a higher risk of heart disease.
