USV Beat Diabetes - Managing Pre-Diabetes: Episode 1
Diabetes awareness and prevention is always a hot topic of discussion among us, but what about pre-diabetes? Pre-diabetes is a serious health condition. People with pre-diabetes have higher blood sugar than normal, increasing the risk of developing type-2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke and its associated complications. Many people are still unaware of the seriousness of the condition. A good understanding of pre-diabetes is essential for our overall health. As pre-diabetes cases continue to rise in India and around the world, promoting pre-diabetes awareness is essential. Pre-diabetes doesn't have any clear symptoms, so it often goes unnoticed and undiagnosed. Some people may not realize that they or someone they care for could have pre-diabetes. Getting detected with pre-diabetes provides one with a window to take corrective steps to reverse the condition. You should consult a doctor and follow the doctor's recommendation, to make necessary lifestyle changes. In these episodes, we talk to eminent endocrinologists addressing the myths and facts about pre-diabetes, helping us to understand and manage pre-diabetes better. Today's show features an illustrious panel of experts, Dr. Prof Ashok Kumar Das, Dr. Vijay Viswanathan and Dr. A Ramachandran.
