Are you at risk for diabetes? Whether you want to find out or not isn't even worth asking. The fact is that you need to find out, because if you are at risk, you can take measures to prevent it, or at the very least postpone it for many years.To determine whether or not you are prone to diabetes, there are several questions that you must ask yourself. If you answer yes to any of the questions, you are at risk of developing diabetes.Question 1: Do you exercise three to five times a week, for approximately 30 minutes each time?Question 2: Are you overweight?Question 3: Have you had a baby weighing more than nine pounds at birth?Question 4: Do you have a close relative, such as a parent, grandparent, or sibling, who has been diagnosed with diabetes?If you've answered yes to any of these questions, you need to see your doctor. Your doctor will ask more extensive questions, and may order more testing to determine whether or not you have diabetes already or not. Based on your risk for developing diabetes, if you don't have it already, he will most likely suggest lifestyle changes that can help you to prevent it, and suggest that you be tested again for diabetes on an annual or biannual basis.If you don't have diabetes, but you are at high risk for it, please do not ignore the warning signs! You have the opportunity right now to avoid an illness that has an impact on your overall health -- for life. Once you have diabetes, it doesn't go away, and it does considerable damage to the body if it isn't managed properly. If you know that you are at risk, but you aren't willing to make changes to avoid diabetes, the chances that you will take proper steps to manage it once you have the disease are slim.Milos Pesic is an expert in the field of Diabetes and has helped thousands of diabetes sufferers control their blood sugar.
