In It For Health

Where health and psychology intersect

Teens and Diabetes

Posted by Dr. Susan on November 8, 2005

I just read an article in Newsday today that says that one in every six overweight teenage girls (and boys) already has pre-diabetic symptoms and is at very high risk for getting diabetes. This is an EXCELLENT reason to think about how important it is to eat healthily and get some exercise. Diabetes is a serious illness and losing weight can help you to avoid it completely. So, start slowly and begin to make some changes in your eating and exercise habits. You can do it, I know you can!!
