When Is The Best Time To Test For Diabetes

?

Diabetes is a chronic disease that usually has no symptoms until the damage done to your body, blood vessels and nerves becomes very severe. You can test for diabetes at any time, but it is important not to wait too long to do so. In fact, it’s best to begin testing as soon as you have a suspicion that you may be having Type 2 Diabetes. If you wait until your blood sugar levels rise significantly – which they will – then your chance of complications from diabetes are much greater because by then there may already be some damage being done. Once diagnosed with pre-diabetes or type 2 diabetes, the only way to reverse this condition is through exercising regularly and eating a healthy diet devoid of processed foods and sugars (including fructose), maintaining an ideal weight and taking medication as prescribed by your doctor if needed.
