Too Few Americans Aware of 'Pre-Diabetes'
Date:11/6/2008

t), but found no significant race/ethnicity-related differences.

Of the 984 people who'd been told they had pre-diabetes, 68 percent tried to lose or control weight, 55 percent increased their levels of physical activity, and 60 percent reduced their intake of dietary fat or calories. Only 42 percent engaged in all three risk reduction activities, and 24 percent didn't participate in any of these activities, the study found.

The study was published in this week's issue of the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, a CDC journal. It echoes a prior study, published in the same journal on Oct. 31, that found that the U.S. rate of new cases of full-blown type 2 diabetes has doubled over the past decade from 4.5 cases per 1,000 people in 1995-1997, to 9.1 cases per 1,000 people by 2007. The suspected cause: rising obesity rates.

It's not too late to turn those numbers around, experts said. "An important opportunity exists to reduce the preventable burden of diabetes and its complications by increasing awareness of pre-diabetes among those who have the condition, and encouraging the adoption of healthier lifestyles and risk reduction activities among all U.S. adults," the researchers wrote in a summary of their study.

They added that people at increased risk for diabetes should lose or control their weight, increase their physical activity levels, and be tested according to published recommendations.
