Lose weight, get fit & feel good at SenSpa
1st Jul 2014
Obesity is a huge battle for the UK and it was announced this month that rates have doubled in the past two decades. Back in 1993 the figure for obesity in men was 13.2% and women 16.4%. In 2014 it is now 24.4% for men and 25.1% for women. These shocking figures have meant an alarming number of people are now on the verge of developing diabetes with 15 million, or 1 in 3 adults, now classed as being at risk.
This borderline, or pre-diabetes, is when blood glucose is above the normal level but not sufficiently high enough to class somebody as a diabetic. This is a cause for concern, not only at a national level, with it costing around 10% of the annual health service budget, but also at a personal level. Untreated, diabetes can lead to a number of health problems. Diabetics are 5 times more likely to develop heart disease or to have a stroke and amputations; even mildly raised glucose levels associated with pre-diabetics can have damaging long term effects raising the risk of vascular, kidney and retinal problems.
Classic symptoms associated with diabetes are:
Needing the toilet often (particularly at night)
A blood glucose test is the only way to be certain if you are at risk.
