If you didn’t already know, diet and exercise REALLY do work for preventing disease and reversing diagnosis!
“I really credit EarthFIT with helping me on this journey to try and stay healthy and making it a great ageing process…
I went from being diagnosed with Prediabetes to having the diagnosis removed from my medical records. When I came to EarthFIT (2013) I was diagnosed with prediabetes. Even though I was active the Doctor said that there is a history of diabetes and cancer in my family and activity would be good for me. The goal was to keep me out of the diabetic diagnosis as long as possible. Prediabetes has a progression. I was looking at 5 years… however long I could forestall that sort of progression, but it would be a progression! In 2014 my A1c level was a 6.0 [A1c hemoglobin level- indicates normal range between 4% and 5.6%. A1c levels between 5.7% and 6.4% mean you have a higher chance of getting diabetes]. At 6.0 A1c I was not quite at medication level but the next round I would probably need to be medicated to control this as opposed to diet and exercise.
So I stepped up what I was doing here at EarthFIT and got a little more serious about the nutrition side of things. The next test started to see the A1c levels come down and they steadily came down. The last three test which is 18 months of A1c testing I am at a 5.5! Which that no longer has a prediabetic diagnosis! The doctor actual took it out of my medical records and said “Now you are disease free!“
Being here at EarthFIT and building the muscle is what has helped my body fight these things that are related to blood sugars and inflammation and things like that.EarthFIT is a wonderful community!” Connie’s success story proves that diet and exercise can change your medical diagnosis. How much is your health worth to you? Prediabetes is a serious health condition where blood sugar levels are higher than normal, but not high enough yet to be 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.
