Generally pre-diabetes, diabetes, hypertension, overweight of all lives and disorders we know that so some of the risk factors are common for all these issues like for pre-diabetes or hypertension but I'm downward pre-diabetes. But I have this is similar like. We start with higher age 30, 40 plus male sex. Male patient are more prone to be 3 times more. You're condition of fat if you have fat percentage is more than 20%, 30% especially waist fat. The belly fat if your waist size is more than 40 inches in males, more than 35 inches in females, the likelihood of developing the diabetes is more. Moving on to family history of diabetes if a guy has a sister and father diabetic. And a lady has his mother and father diabetic would never take this factor for depth. Then coming to other specific a female having polycystic ovarian disease. She's more prone to have it happens im females in pregnancy having high blood sugar or diabetes called jason emilys'. She's likely to be ended up adopting rage or diabetic rage. Then patients having typical symptoms of metabolic syndrome which are having high blood pressure, high cholesterol or high triglycerides levels and overweight or hypertension. So metabolic syndrome have a high belly waist. I take this right hypertension.

These are having high propensity to become adaptability you measure them sugar levels. They be generally in productive age. That is a point alarmic state where patient should take care of. For diabetes we've many known symptoms like thirst, fatigue, lot of hunger but in pre-diabetes may not be there symptoms shall it is not less but there's some. Strangely there is some science when high blood sugar especially the skin, something all skin tags like I've this skin tag and targeting of the skin in the neck area. It is called necrobures acanthosis negricans, darkening of the skin in the neck, armpits, elbows. This is one of the sign and having as I you 40 inches waist what we guys and also skin. These are not some triglycerides are very high abnormal triglycerides. So these are some symptoms of that and high insulin levels. These are also signs there conditions can be having to adapt. Prevention and treatment of diabetes is similar except medication. So many patient may not require medication but preventing diabetes or managing a diet is same as weight exercise. Exercise is must for management decreasing carbohydrates in the night like chapattis, breads is important. Number 3 if you're sedentary start moving, number 4 reduce the sleep on time. Don't awake in the night and take proper rest. So food exercise and lifestyle management. So they'll prevent any diabetes wonderfully.
