Prediabetes in America

79 Million Americans Have Prediabetes, and Most Do Not Know It!

Prediabetes is a condition in which the blood sugar is higher than normal but not high enough to meet the criteria for Diabetes Type II. Unless this condition is detected, a person with Prediabetes will never know that his insulin is not working properly. Even though the beta cells of his pancreas will be working overtime to produce very high amounts of insulin in order to maintain normal blood sugars, he will not have any symptoms. Most people with Prediabetes will develop Diabetes type 2 within a 10-year time frame if they do not adopt lifestyle changes. (It takes about that long for their beta cells to wear out from the stress of having to produce so much extra insulin.) About 11% of people with Prediabetes develop overt diabetes every year. People with Prediabetes face 2-3 times the risk of heart attacks and strokes compared to those without it, and if and when they become diabetic, these risks increase further.

Hope for the Hopeless

Approximately 80% of all severe cases involving anorexia or bulimia have a coexisting major depression diagnosis. Depression is a very painful and all consuming disorder in and of itself. However, in combination with an eating disorder, depression is beyond devastating and is often masked within the eating disorder itself. Depression in eating disorder clients looks different than it does in clients who have mood disorder alone. One way to describe how depression looks in someone who is suffering with an eating disorder is: hidden misery. For eating disorder clients, depression takes on a heightened quality of hopelessness and self-hatred, and becomes an expression of their identity, not a list of unpleasant symptoms. The depression becomes intertwined with the manifestations of the eating disorder, and because of this interwoven quality, the depressive symptoms are often not clearly distinguishable from the eating disorder. One purpose of this article is to highlight some of the distinctions and differences in how depression manifests itself in someone suffering with anorexia or bulimia. Another purpose is to provide suggestions that will begin to foster hope for these hopeless clients within the therapy setting.
