Researchers are continuing to make progress in identifying the exact genetic genes that triggers some individuals in developing type 1 diabetes, but prevention, as well as a cure remains mysterious. There have been a number of studies that have shown that type 2 diabetes is likely to be associated with obesity. These studies that have also shown that regular exercise can significantly reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
To date researcher continues to look for the cause or causes of diabetes and the ways to prevent and cure this disease. It is believer the genes may be involved in type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Some genetic markers for type 1 diabetes have been identified, and it is now possible to screen family and relatives of people with type 1 diabetes to determine whether they are at risk.
There are some possible to delay or even prevent diabetes from ever developing. There are pre-diabetes test that you can take to see whether you are risk in developing diabetes and to take action to prevent diabetes if you have, or at risk for, pre-diabetes.
There are 2 different tests that you physician can use:
Both of these tests measure the blood glucose levels after determining whether the individual have a normal metabolism, or whether the individual have pre-diabetes or diabetes. If the blood glucose level is abnormal following the FPG, the individual have impaired fasting glucose (IFG). If the blood glucose level is abnormal following the OGTT, you have impaired glucose tolerance (IGT).
Pre-diabetes can be serious medical condition, but the good news is it can be treated with changes to diet and daily regular exercise. Many individual have found that with these they are able to return their blood glucose levels to a normal range.
