Welcome - exercise and healthy eating can reverse and sometimes even cure a lot of conditions, there are others that may simply be slowed down and/or reduced in severity. I have found that healthy FEELS a whole lot better than unhealthy. Even cancers and diabetes can be helped with healthier habits - not just eating and exercise, but sleeping, playing, relaxing, building and enjoying relationships, and meditating/praying/quiet thinking. The balance and combination of ALL of these can create a feeling of health that is difficult to beat with any artificial drugs or whatever.

With love and caring from Nancy ... wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed, and precious day.

Welcome. I saw your posting on another thread, so will just add this to what I wrote earlier. Good you are working on this before diabetes is diagnosed. You will find that exercise will drive the blood pressure and blood sugar levels down. I have readings consistently in the low to mid 90s now, down from the mid 300s. Occasionally there may be a low blood sugar reading, which occurs when I miss a meal or exercise without taking a snack with me. Trust me, you will feel like a totally new person when everything gets stable. Best wishes.

Reduce weight (80-100 lbs) so that I can get off my pre-diabetic and high blood pressure medicine.
