The Top Signs & Symptoms of PRE-DIABETES! SugarMD

Share this:

Prediabetes is the condition between insulin resistance and diabetes. You can still have pre-diabetic symptoms. Dr. Ergin(SugarMD) also discusses pre-diabetes treatment in this video. Metabolic syndrome/insulin resistance is a combination of metabolic derangements such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Insulin resistance eventually leads to a pre-diabetes state. So, when someone has prediabetes even an elevated amount of insulin cannot keep blood sugar levels at normal levels which can lead to pre-diabetic symptoms and may need pre-diabetes treatment early on. Metabolic syndrome finally develops when you have a combination of insulin resistance that results in high glucose, high blood pressure, and abnormal cholesterol.

What should I do if I have pre-diabetes and what diet is best for prediabetes?
If you have pre-diabetes, metabolic syndrome, or insulin resistance, make lifestyle changes. Do so to reduce the chance that you will get full-blown diabetes. Here are a few things you can do.

Lose weight – Losing 5 to 10 percent of your body weight can lower your risk a lot. If you weigh 180 pounds that means you should lose 9 to 18 pounds. If you weigh 160 pounds, that means you should lose 8 to 16 pounds.
Eat right – Choose a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and low-fat dairy products, but low in meats, sweets, and refined sugar. Stay away from sweet drinks, like soda and juice.
Exercise for 30 minutes a day – You don’t have to go to the gym or break a sweat to get a benefit. Walking, gardening and dancing are all activities that can help.
Quit smoking – If you smoke, ask your doctor or nurse for advice on how to quit. People are much more likely to succeed if they have help and get medicines to help them quit.
If your doctor or nurse prescribed any medicines, take them every day, as directed. The most common medication that helps the prevention of diabetes is metformin. That goes for medicines to prevent diabetes, and for ones to lower blood pressure or cholesterol. People with pre-diabetes have a higher-than-average risk of heart attacks, strokes, and other problems, so those medicines are important.


Regardless of your diabetes type (type 2 diabetes or type 1 diabetes), you will find plenty of diabetes control tips in the SugarMD channel by Dr. Ergin. We have a lot of content around foods to eat when you have diabetes, diabetic recipes, exercise videos, diabetic supplements, herbs, natural remedies, regular medications, and more. We talk about normal blood sugar levels, how to keep blood sugar as close to normal as possible without sacrificing your entire diet. How to make a diabetic diet more enjoyable while creating a diabetic meal plan. And, most of all we support and help each other learn and stay strong against this ugly chronic disease.
SugarMD combines holistic and evidence-based medicine and serves you the best of both worlds without bias.

    Thank you for this video, so clear and informative :-). Where I live (Italy) and have lived (France) testing for prediabetes is not something that has ever been suggested for me apart from when I was pregnant and had to do the resistency tests (I don´t know what results I had, unfortunately at that time I didn´t look into results myself or question anything, just that I was not diabetic. I´ve had pcos when I was very underweight, no doctor did ever suggest I could do anything about it and it´s only recently that I´ve understood that it could be connected to prediabetes. I have an extremely healthy lifestyle (foodwise at least, unfortunately not stresswise or sleepwise, and exercise has been too bad since the start of the pandemic) usually, but have gained weight over the pandemic so am worried for my health. Therefore I started the new year with fasting (48h, followed by 18/4) and more exercise, and also with testing my blood sugar every morning. I know I´ve gained weight, it´s scary to feel so out of my own shape, but yet it came as a shock to see that my blood sugar while fasting was 202 at the lowest and 226 at the highest 😞. I will continue to monitor my bloodsugar at least for another week before showing my log to my doctor and asking her for advice, I´m hoping to see some results from the fasting and exercise before. Oh and I feel like urging everyone I know to buy a device for blood sugar (ridiculously cheap at amazon) and see if they are as healthy as they think. I know quite a few people who have problems with high cholesterol (bad one), high blood pressure, feeling extremely weak if they don´t get food(sugar) regularly, belly fat even if generally fit etc.

    I was diagnosed with pre-diabetes 2 weeks ago. My A1C was a 4.6 but my glucose tolerance is 164. However, I tend to have more symptoms of lows verses highs. Earlier this week in the afternoon by blood sugar was a 31. That's how we found your videos.

    People always forget the hereditary factor. One thing I realized that is interesting. I look a lot like my dad, who wears glasses and so do I…..My brother looks more like my mom, who doesn't wear glasses and he also has perfect eyesight. That's gotta be hereditary?

  16. Kelly J. Munroe

    I have ckd (there's a tumor on my adrenal gland). I hover between stage 2 and stage 3. I also have numerous lupus-related illnesses. Apparently, I'm pre diabetic. My nephrologist has put the complete owness on me…she blames me. I have been in a deep depression ever since. I haven't done anything differently than ever before. I have gained a lot of weight recently. A lot of that is due to being depressed. I don't know…I just want to give up. The anxiety of everything is just too much. I tried telling her that I was under a lot of stress. I think this is raising my cortisol. She just smirked. I cannot get another nephrologist…there's a shortage of nephrologists.

    Thank you for this amazing helpful information. Your videos have helped me with my sugar. However, I have a gripe with physicians in general not giving better direction about this spectrum. Prediabetes = Diabetes without insulin. Calling it Pre just diminishes the significance and I personally didn't take it seriously enough. It should be called something else like Glucose Metabolism Disorder and treated as an important syndrome since it is.

    Also, please mention the fat in your organs: liver, heart, lungs, tongue (sleep apnea), kidney, muscles and pancreas.
