The doctor said I have pre-diabetes.I’m scared what should I do?

He did not prescribe me any medication.All he said was go on a low salt diet.No medicine or anything like that was giving.WTH? I thought you have to stick needles in you.:( I’m scared, I don’t want to die.

I went to the DR because last week I had a panic attack and this new DR I have had records from the ER, He said my blood Gluecous was borderline. And that he wants me to go on a low salt die and walk 4 miles a day in 20 minutes(The hell I can walk 4 miles in 20 minutes.I’ll faint from heat)

I’m scared and don’t know what to do.The only med he prescribed is blood pressure.Cause my blood pressure was 177 over 105.But that was all.

Thinking about it, I’m starting to cry and I can feel my blood pressure rising, I’m getting sweats and everything.
I’m sure getting my blood pressure up isn’t going to help.
He wants me back in 4 weeks to check my blood pressure and to see how my walking is going.Which I haven’t done any yet,because there’s no where to walk and I don’t have a license to drive to a park or something.

Pre means not there yet so start taking the precautions he reccomended. He must not think it’s too bad if all he said was lower your sodium intake. Try less sugar and stuff too. If you can’t walk 4 miles try walking as much as possible then doing some other kind of exercise. My grandma had the same diagnosis and she never did actually get diabetes. Take a deep breath I’m sure you will be fine

Just calm down. I have pre-diabetes too,for me its genetic and I had high triglycerides. In your case you must have too much sodium in your system. Try eating less salty foods and excersise daily. Try not to panic or get scared much so youre blood gluecouse does not fo bordeline again. If you cant run for miles in 20 minutes try jogging at a moderate pace for at least 30 minutes each day.

wow i wish i could go back to the pre state. don’t complain let this be a wake up call. get out early in the morning and walk 1 hr. fast. do basic exercise at home like push up pull ups squats, and more attention to your food intake. don’t salt your food, no soda pops, coffee black tea unsweetened. no sugar free. eat fruits no junk snacks. you can have a mini ice cream once in a while. but you can eat apple everyday. no creamy stuff. you are lucky, you got a warning don’t throw away this blessing.

Diabetes is a serious condition, but it’s also a completely manageable one. The complications associated diabetes actually result from persistently high blood sugar levels. As long as you can control your blood sugar levels, your risk is very low of dying due to diabetes.

Because your blood pressure is high, your doctor wants you on a low-salt diet. A low-salt diet, however, won’t have any effect on your blood sugar levels. While it’s extremely important to control blood pressure, it’s also extremely important to control blood sugar. Your doctor should not have sent you home without telling you how to change your diet. The advice that you should walk or at least exercise is good, though. How about swimming or an indoor treadmill?

You should be making dietary adjustments. Diabetics primarily limit carbohydrates because they’re what drive up blood sugar. Protein impacts blood sugar, but much less so, and fat has no impact at all. High-carbohydrate foods are grains, rice, potatoes, corn, and sugar, even from fruit. Some good foods to eat are any type of meat, hard cheese, and non-starchy vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, mushrooms, asparagus, etc.). Nuts, soft cheeses, sour cream, and heavy cream can be enjoyed in moderation, too. You should be testing your blood sugar at home even if your doctor doesn’t think it’s important because that’ll help you gauge whether what you’re eating is positively affecting your blood sugar. Ideally, you would stay under 7.8 mmol/L by 1 hour after your first bite and 6.7 mmol/L by 2 hours. Fasting levels should be below 6.1 mmol/L, but non-diabetics basically always fast below 5.5 mmol/L.

I really can’t stress this enough: you are in the early stages of diabetes and you need to take this as seriously as you would if you had been diagnosed with full-blown diabetes and very high blood sugar. What you do now matters a great deal. If you control your blood sugar, you may be able to slow down the progress of the disease and stay off medication for a long time. If you don’t, your blood sugar will get higher and higher at every doctor’s appointment. Finally, pre-diabetics can experience blood sugar spikes high enough to cause diabetic complications, so please don’t get complacent and think that you’re too borderline to get sick from diabetes. You can feel fine and be doing damage to your eyes, heart, and kidneys.

Buy a glucose meter, get on a low-carbohydrate diet, exercise (swim, walk around your house, do sit-ups in your living room, buy an exercise DVD – whatever you need to do), and watch your salt intake. You’ll feel better for it and you’ll be preserving your health.

I know what you ARE GOING THROUGH. I am not prediabetic, but I have panic disorder. All you can do is try to calm down. Worrying about stuff is BAD FOR YOU. Just make sure if you excercise you are being supervised somehow.
