I just want to say… be careful of your health. If you are told you are pre-diabetic you need to treat it as if you ARE diabetic to stop it from progressing.
Unfortunately, I have now been diagnosed with diabetic retinopathy and will be receiving treatment this week consisting of injections into my eyeballs to hopefully slow/stop the progression of the disease. I don’t want to go blind.
Even though I got my blood sugar under control quite quickly once I was diagnosed as full blown diabetic (by eliminating carbs from my diet), the eyes continued to deteriorate severely. This was discovered last week when I had my six-month “diabetic health check.” The fact that the surgeon has “squeezed” me in this week scares the hell out of me.
If you have any family history of diabetes, stay on top of it. You don’t want to deal with this, trust me.
