7 Symptoms of Prediabetes You Shouldn’t Ignore

The same way that excess blood sugar can lead to hunger it can also lead to exhaustion. When your body isn’t getting the fuel it needs, despite eating full meals, you are bound to feel tired. This symptom may exacerbate other risk factors for prediabetes as well, because of course when you are drained and exhausted you feel the need to rest.

But when the fatigue is chronic, you may scale back on the physical activity necessary to maintain a healthy body weight. It’s also common to rely on fatty convenience foods when you feel too tired to cook (not the mention do the dishes afterwards). Sedentary lifestyle and poor diet are the two biggest risk factors for prediabetes.
