Prediabetes Is Way Too Common in the Youth of U.S.A.

I’m worried about the kid’s future health

Stats from JAMA Pediatrics:

In the United States, about 1 of 5 adolescents [12–18 y.o.] and 1 of 4 young adults [19–34 y.o.] have prediabetes. The adjusted prevalence of prediabetes is higher in male individuals and in people with obesity. Adolescents and young adults with prediabetes also present an unfavorable cardiometabolic risk profile, putting them both at increased risk of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular diseases.

I’m doing my part to prevent conversion of prediabetes to type 2 diabetes. The right diet, exercise, and weight loss are just what the doctor ordered.

    Thanks for your message. I thought your own experiment with weight loss and low carb eating last year (?) was great. I wish there was an easy way to find those posts again. Medit. Diet is the way to go for me. KMD will be my next book to read. Already have it on the Kindle. Happy New Year!

    Ha! Finally remembered the name of your campaign: “Nuttin’ But Salads”. 2018…time flies.
