You take care of your family, your pets, your home, your finances, and your career.
But are you taking care of yourself? With busy schedules and seemingly never-ending to-do lists, many women may be putting their own health last. But what if this year for Mother’s Day, you put yourself and your health at the top of your to-do list? How? By talking to your doctor about prediabetes.
Find out if you have prediabetes
One in three Americans has prediabetes, a condition where blood sugar levels are higher than normal but not high enough yet for a type 2 diabetes diagnosis. You can have prediabetes for years but have no clear symptoms, so it often goes undetected until serious health problems such as type 2 diabetes show up. It’s important to talk to your doctor about getting your blood sugar tested if you have any of the risk factors for prediabetes.
