Could you be one of the Australians currently at risk of pre-diabetes and how would you find out?
Many people with pre-diabetes or high blood sugar experience no signs or symptoms except for perhaps feeling tired or generally run down. In the early stages of pre-diabetes blood tests may not always be a reliable indicator of risk, there are many important risk factors that are potential early warning signs such as:
- Genetic factors or a family history of type 2 diabetes
- High blood pressure or feeling constantly anxious or stressed
- Being overweight – (The Australian Health Survey in 2012 found that nationally the number of people overweight in 2012 63.4% with almost 30% of these being obese, these figures are still rising)
- Insomnia or sleeping difficulties
- a diet rich in processed foods or high sugar content.

What should you do?
The Blood Sugar Challenge has two steps, the first step is to check your current blood sugar levels by having a simple blood test:
The blood test: HbA1C – this test returns an accurate average measurement of average blood glucose. This is important as it gives an accurate reading over period of 8 – 12 weeks unlike other simple blood sugar tests. We can do this as part of the Blood Sugar Challenge. You can see more information about the specific test here.
We will let you know within a week whether your results are within a healthy range.
If your blood sugar level is unhealthy, the second step is to join the 12 week Blood Sugar Challenge.
