Nearly half of U.S. adults either have prediabetes or type 2 diabetes. This is a sizeable increase from the previous numbers where, just a few years ago, the figure was closer to one in three adults.
An equally troubling stat is that nine out of 10 people with prediabetes don’t even know they have it. This is nothing short of an epidemic, largely because it’s not a disease with a simple treatment, despite the seemingly long list of therapies currently on the market.
Why is this?
First, prediabetes is an extremely complex disease, whose cause rarely – if ever – stems from a single issue like a poor diet, as many might suspect. In fact, many individuals with prediabetes are physiologically predisposed to it because of foundational issues relating to both blood sugar metabolism and insulin resistance.
Identifying these problems isn’t an easy task, and often, patients seek to only address the resulting symptoms. But as you can imagine, only going after the symptoms will never be successful in reversing prediabetes. These therapies might show some promise early on, but ultimately fail, as demonstrated by a 2004 Diabetes Care study, “The Burden of Treatment Failure in Type 2 Diabetes.”
Diet and exercise are, and will always be, a necessary part to any prediabetes regimen. But for those who also are battling underlying physiological challenges, attacking those problems must be part of the solution as well.
If you’ve struggled to find success in reversing your prediabetes, your body may not be able to process vitamins, carbs and other nutrients effectively. PreD was developed for this very reason, and with a combination of ingredients specifically intended to address the complexity of sugar metabolism, with the intent to reverse the underlying causes of prediabetes.
