Prediabetes Coach Georgianne here. Do you know your numbers?

Not your pin code or your birth weight–I’m talking about your health numbers!

It is important that you know the numbers that show whether or not you are Prediabetic. It may surprise you, but only 10% of Americans with prediabetes know they have it. I’m always shocked when I think about this! When you don’t know what your situation is, it’s pretty tough to take appropriate actions.

coach's note

When was the last time you had a blood sugar test at home or the doctor’s office? If you do not know what your numbers are, I recommend that you saddle up and make arrangements to find out. Making an appointment for a check-up may prove to save you years of suffering. Why? When we know our health numbers we can make decisions at home to practice self-care as our primary care.

Think about it: Heart disease and diabetes, which account for more deaths in the U.S. and worldwide than everything else combined, are completely preventable by making comprehensive lifestyle changes. Without drugs or surgery. – Dean Ornish
