Diabetes Test
A recent study suggests that for people on the brinks of developing Type 2 diabetes need to have an aggressive approach from early on.  By taking on this early approach, it has justifiably shown to reduce this disease in many cases.

People who have, what doctors are referring to as "pre-diabetes", will have a blood sugar level that is higher than normal, but not quite at the diabetic level.

By restoring your blood sugar level back to normal, it reduces the risk of acquiring Type 2 diabetes, states an article recently published in US health magazine Lancet.

It is believed that 1 out of 10 people in the United Kingdom have pre-diabetes, while nearly 1 in 4 people in the United States of America have this pre condition. 

These people are at a heightened risk of acquiring Type 2 diabetes, having a heart attack or a stroke.  But there are still many people who are undiagnosed.

There are a few safety measures that can be taken to reduce the blood sugar level and reverse pre-diabetes.  A couple of them are weight loss and exercise.
