Diabetes and Exercise

According to The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, “An estimated 30.3 million people in the United States, or 9.4 percent of the population, have diabetes. About one in four people with diabetes don’t know they have the disease. An estimated 84.1 million Americans aged 18 years or older have prediabetes.” (Source: https://www.niddk.nih.gov/health-information/diabetes?dkrd=lgdmn0026)

According to the American Association of Diabetes “There are several ways to diagnose diabetes. Each way usually needs to be repeated on a second day to diagnose diabetes.Testing should be carried out in a health care setting (such as your doctor’s office or a lab). If your doctor determines that your blood glucose level is very high, or if you have classic symptoms of high blood glucose in addition to one positive test, your doctor may not require a second test to diagnose diabetes.” (Source: http://www.diabetes.org/are-you-at-risk/prediabetes/?loc=superfooter)
