According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 100 million adults in the United States are prediabetic or diabetic. Both conditions are the result of higher than normal blood sugar levels, typically 100 mg/dL or higher. If you have been diagnosed with prediabetes or diabetes, you are at an increased risk of developing other health conditions including stroke, heart or kidney disease. When blood sugar levels remain elevated for an extended period of time, it can also affect the health of your eyes and lead to complications such as blurry vision and in some cases, blindness. While diabetes is a serious disease, you can manage your blood sugar with medications and by following a healthy lifestyle.
