    By Andrew R. Einhorn MA, Physical Therapist

    For the past 59 years I have lived a healthy lifestyle; I have taken a very healthy and disciplined approach to the food I consume, the amount of sugar I intake, and I have engaged in daily exercise.

    My close friends think I am too particular about my eating and exercise habits as I avoid excessive sugar products, emphasize eating complex carbohydrates and exercise no matter what.

    I do not think it’s excessive to go on a 100-mile bike ride periodically while riding 80-100 miles each week. I have completed a 200 mile (Seattle to Portland) bike ride in 13 hours of ride time. I will admit that sitting on a bike seat for that length of time is a bit much! This level of exercise is not for everyone but this is the type of exercise commitment I have made my entire life.

    Over the past three years my diet has been good; I eat low fat home cooked meals at least 5 nights a week (thanks to Wendy my great wife) and continue to watch my sugar intake and exercise. Even with this lifestyle, my blood fasting sugar tests and A1C continued to rise. Last year I was advised that I am now a prediabetic!

    I have a major genetic link to diabetes that supersedes good life style habits. My mothers' side of the family has many insulin dependent diabetics which places me into the highest-risk category for diabetes. Genetics trumps everything.

    I am advising you about my new diagnosis not to scare you, but instead to inform you about proven diabetes prevention and management information. I will remain disciplined in the battle against diabetes.

    Here is the plan: Each edition of “The Health Advocate” will contain informational material that will help you prevent, manage or seek out professional assistance in confronting medical problems. I have chosen my own personal issue as a starting point of this discussion. If this medical condition can happen to me, it can happen to you! I will follow up in the next edition of “The Health Advocate” section with information on blood fasting test results, and the importance of the A1C test.

    Here are some FAQ’s about prediabetes that I obtained from the ADA website. For further information visit: (American Diabetes Association) site as a starting point.

    Q: What is prediabetes?
    A: Prediabetes is when a person's blood glucose levels are higher than normal but not high enough to be type 2 diabetic. People with prediabetes are more likely to develop type 2 diabetes and may have some problems from diabetes already.

    Q: If I have prediabetes, will I definitely develop type 2 diabetes?
    A: No. Research shows that you can lower your risk for type 2 diabetes by 58% by:

    Losing 7% of your body weight (or 15 pounds if you weigh 200 pounds)
    Exercising moderately (such as brisk walking) 30 minutes a day, five days a week
    Don't worry if you can't get to your ideal body weight. Losing just 10 to 15 pounds can make a huge difference. For some people with prediabetes, early treatment can actually return blood glucose levels to the normal range.

  7. Your Posture Tip Of The Day

    By Andrew R. Einhorn, PT

    Proper posture will reduce stress on your neck and shoulders. Avoid looking down with head and shoulders slumped forwards. Instead, simply
    tuck your chin inwards, squeeze your shoulder blades down and together
    and open up your chest.

    Tip will improve your posture and decrease neck and shoulder stress!
