Kids who get type 2 diabetes are usually diagnosed in their early teens. Parents can do a lot to help their kids prevent type 2 diabetes. Set a new normal as a family—healthy changes become habits more easily when everyone does them together.
A recent study showed that when the amount of TV kids watched was limited, they lost weight—but not because they were more active when they weren’t watching. The difference was snacking: kids ate more when they were watching TV than when doing other activities, even not physically active ones.

Risk factors for prediabetes and type 2 diabetes include:
• A family history of diabetes
• Over age 40
• Overweight
• History of gestational diabetes (diabetes or high blood sugar when pregnant)
• High blood pressure
• Hispanic, African American, Asian, or Native American
You can have prediabetes for years but have no clear symptoms, so it often goes undetected until serious health problems such as type 2 diabetes show up. Take the online risk test and talk about it with your provider. With early diagnosis, prediabetes can often be reversed. It just takes making doable changes like eating healthier, getting exercise, and figuring out the best ways to manage stress and cope with real-life challenges. www.cdc.gov/prediabetes/takethetest/

Prediabetes is like a pre-diagnosis of diabetes. It’s a warning sign that a person’s blood sugar levels are higher than normal but not high enough yet to be officially diagnosed as type 2 diabetes. Approximately 84 million American adults—more than 1 out of 3—have prediabetes. Of those with prediabetes, 90% don’t know they have it. Prediabetes puts you at increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. ... See MoreSee Less
