We all know the things like insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, syndrome X, obesity, pre-diabetes, adult-onset diabetes, type-2 diabetes…. But what do they all mean? And what is the difference?
Well, if we look at them all from a root-cause level, they are essentially the same thing. They are all just slightly different health issues, with slightly different symptoms, but at the core they are the same with the same dangers.
So to describe the broader condition which entails all the symptoms and diseases mentioned above, they have come up with an umbrella-term or name called “Diabesity”. This includes and covers everything from sub-optimal blood sugar levels, tight through to full-on diabetes and obesity.
More than 70% of people who are overweight already have some form of diabetes, which includes a state called “pre-diabetes” which means that you are at extreme risk of transitioning into type-2 diabetes very soon. This means that you are at an increased risk for other health issues like heart disease, stroke, and even early death.
