Taking proper care will at least delay, if not prevent, diabetes. In either case, you're better off dealing with it now than when it becomes "the real thing". Do as I say, not as I did...

Hello littlered

According to the American Diabetes Association guidelines, a normal fasting blood sugar is 70-100mg/dl and a A1C less than 5.6%. Pre diabetes is 100-125mg/dl with a A1C from 5.7% to 6.4%. If you are diagnosed by your MD with pre diabetes, you can prevent Type 2 diabetes by a low fat, high fiber meal plan, exercise 30 minutes 5 times a week, and maintaing a healthy weight. Tennis is a great exercise. You may want to have her A1C checked.
thanks for the question.
