Diabetes is a disease that affects 30.3 million people—roughly 7.2 million of which are undiagnosed. Your chance of developing type 2 diabetes is dependent upon a combination of factors related to both your genes and lifestyle. Though you cannot change your hereditary risk for this incurable disease, you can take a big step toward prevention by adjusting your lifestyle risk factors, such as eating and exercising habits.
As we mentioned before, over 84.1 million adults in the U.S. have prediabetes, and 90% of these people are unaware that they are at risk. As wellness coaches and health experts driven by the goal of helping all individuals achieve their optimal wellness, we at Balanced Wellness strive to do all we can to address type 2 diabetes.
