Am I At Risk of Type 2 Diabetes?

Type 2 Diabetes is a scary illness.

More and more people now have diabetes (just under 10% of the population compared to around 1% in 1958).

People die of diabetes. (Sadly my uncle died of Diabetes even though he was younger than my mother.)

There are many complications of diabetes (my uncle had his leg amputated a few years before he died.)

PRE DIABETES

Many people live in a "pre diabetic" state when the disease process is starting but they are unaware of it. (Over 1/3 of the US population has "pre diabetes".)

Happily there have been many cases of people REVERSING type 2 diabetes by changing their diet.

Happily you can avoid getting type 2 diabetes if you act now and change your diet.

I want to show you how you can change your diet.

First, let's do the quiz and see if you're at risk...

BEFORE YOU START

You'll need to know your BMI (body mass index) weight, height and waist size.

Measure your waist around your belly button, not your trouser size.)

Calculate your BMI with your weight and height. You can use a calculator here.
