By Megan Givan, RD, LD, CDE Some people say they have a “touch of the sugar”. While the Southern expression sounds sweet, it implies prediabetes is not serious. Prediabetes happens when a person’s blood sugar level is above normal, but not so high to be diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. The problem is: Prediabetes is likely to become Type 2 diabetes in 10 years or less without a change in lifestyle.

GOOD NEWS!

WHAT ARE THE RISKS FOR PREDIABETES?

• Extra Weight • Inactivity • Age • Ethnicity • Family History • Lack of Sleep • High Blood Pressure • High Cholesterol Levels • Women Who had Gestational Diabetes or Baby Weighing more than 9 lbs.

There is good news if you are at risk or diagnosed with prediabetes. You may be able to slow or stop your body’s progression to Type 2 diabetes if you catch it early enough, and bring your blood sugar back to a normal level with healthy lifestyle changes — such as eating healthy foods, including physical activity in your daily routine, and maintaining a healthy weight.

LOW RISK: Right now your risk for having pre-diabetes or diabetes is low. But your risk goes up as you get older. Talk to your doctor about how to keep your risk low. AT RISK FOR PRE-DIABETES: You are at higher risk for pre-diabetes which means your blood glucose is higher than normal but not high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. Talk to your doctor about ways to reduce your risk for diabetes. HIGH RISK: You are at higher risk for having Type 2 diabetes. However, only your doctor can tell for sure if you do have Type 2 diabetes. Talk to your doctor to see if additional testing is needed.

Here are some simple steps you can take:

*Your risk for diabetes or pre-diabetes depends on additional risk factors including weight, physical activity and blood pressure.

1-800-DIABETES diabetes.org/risktest

• Make healthy food choices such as fruits and vegetables, fish, lean meats, dry beans, whole grains, and low-fat or skim milk and cheese. • Choose water to drink. Sugar added drinks, such as soda, have empty calories and little nutrition. Try with a wedge of citrus. • Eat smaller portions. portions Make 1/2 your plate vegetables and fruits; 1/4 a whole grain, such as brown rice; and 1/4 a protein food, such as lean meat, poultry, fish, or dried beans. • Be active at least 30 minutes, 5 days a week to help you burn calories and lose weight. You don’t have to get all your physical activity at one time. Choose something you enjoy. Ask family to be active with you. • Do not worry if you can’t get to your ideal body weight. Losing even 10 to 15 pounds can make a huge difference in prevention. • To help you reach your goals, write down all the foods you eat and drink and the number of minutes you are active. Research proves those who follow this particular step have the best outcomes. Most people with prediabetes do not have any symptoms. Take the above risk test to find out your risk, and talk with your doctor. Your doctor can test your blood to find out if your blood glucose levels are higher than normal. 4

10 Reasons to Eat Local

1. Eating local is good for the local economy. A dollar spent locally generates twice as much income for the local economy. You’re helping to support your own community. 2. Locally grown produce is more nutritious. Produce that you buy in the supermarket is usually transported many miles (an average of 1500 miles) from where it is harvested. It has been cold-stored or in transit for days or even weeks. Many times, the produce you buy from your local farmer’s market has been picked within 24 hours of your purchase. Fresher produce retains more nutrients. The longer the produce is stored, the more nutritional value it loses. 3. Locally grown food tastes better. Think tomato out of the garden versus one out of the produce aisle. 4. Local food is better for air quality and pollution. The transportation required to get foods to the grocery stores produces pollution and environmental damage and can be very costly. Think about how much fuel is used to transport those fruits and vegetables from the other side of the country. 5. Buying locally keeps us in touch with the seasons. When we eat foods that are in season, we are eating them when they are at their peak taste, most plentiful, and least expensive. 6. Buying locally can be a great social and learning experience. The farmer who grew the apples he brought to the market likely has a story to tell about it. Children can learn much about where their food comes from by talking to the locals who produced it. 7. Eating local protects us from bioterrorism. Food with less distance to travel has less susceptibility to harmful contamination. 8. Eating locally lends to more variety. When farmers produce foods that aren’t going to travel a long distance, they will have a shorter shelf-life and lower-yield demand. He is free to try small crops of various fruits and vegetables that you would probably not find in a large grocery store. Supermarkets offer more of the produce items that sell most frequently. 9. Eating locally supports better land development and sustainability. We are more likely to keep more of our pastures and farmland if we give farmers a reason to continue cultivating them. 10. Local food is most often less expensive. Because the foods don’t have to travel hundreds or thousands of miles and there is less overhead, the farmer can offer a better price.

12 Tips to Help You Lose Weight and Keep It Off 1. Keep a journal of what you eat. Record the amount you eat, where you eat, and what you are doing when you eat. 2. Drink plenty of water. Drinking at least eight glasses of water each day helps your body to break down fat and decrease your appetite. 3. Eat slowly. Give your body time to tell that it is full. Take a break after you have eaten about half of your meal. 4. Eat smaller portions. Know how much you are eating. It is easier to see how many crackers you are eating if they come out of a bowl you counted them into rather than out of a box. 5. Reduce meal time distractions. It is easy to lose track of how much you are eating when you are watching television. 6. Make problem foods unavailable. If you have a hard time staying away from ice cream, do not have it in the house. If you buy cookies for the kids, try buying a brand you do not like. If necessary, have someone else do the shopping. 7. Make healthy, low fat foods easily available and attractive. If you like vegetables but do not like the prep work, buy them already pre-washed and cut up. 8. Trade a bad habit for a good one. If you have a tendency to munch while watching television, try riding a stationary bike while watching it. Be on the lookout for situations that trigger bad eating habits and change or avoid them. 9. Lose weight gradually. Although quick weight loss seems like a good idea, losing weight too quickly can mean gaining it back quickly. Weight loss should be gradual. A half-pound to two pounds per week is a healthy weight loss goal. 10. Do not skip meals. When you do not eat, your body thinks that there is a famine, and it slows down the rate that it burns calories to compensate for the lack of food. This makes your body actually work harder to store fat. 11. When shopping, plan ahead. Only buy what is on your list. Shop when you are full and look for low-fat alternatives to typical high-fat choices. 12. Exercise frequently. A weight loss program is most successful when accompanied by an exercise program. As little as 20-30 minutes of activity three to four times a week can really make a difference. 8

The law was enhanced in 2015 to increase the height requirement to 57 inches and the age requirement to 8 years old. Children younger than 8 but taller than 57 inches will not have to ride in a booster seat.

Always read the child seat manufacturer instructions and the section on child safety seats in the vehicle owner’s manual.

A child must be kept rear-facing to a minimum of one year of age and 20 pounds, with best practice being two years of age and 30 pounds. When using a convertible seat, it is best to keep the child rear-facing until the maximum rear-facing weight limit. (Reference instructions/seat label)

Rear-facing - the harness straps should be at or below the child’s shoulders. (Reference instructions) Forward-facing - the harness straps should be at or above the child’s shoulders (Reference instructions) This is called the retainer clip and should be kept at armpit level. This enables the harness to stay in the proper position. No more than one finger should fit between the child’s collar bone and the harness strap. The straps should be snug against the child’s shoulders so you cannot pinch any excess webbing. The seat should not move more than one inch side-to-side or back-and-forth when pulling at the belt path. If the seat is older than six years or has exceeded the manufacturer’s expiration date, it must be replaced. If the seat has been involved in a crash, it must be replaced. First check with your insurance company before you purchase a new seat. Using a seat with unknown history is not recommended. Please reference the law in question one, but keep in mind Safety Belt Safe USA recommends children be in a booster as long as possible since seat belts are made for adults. The risk of injury is greater for children in the front seat, with or without an airbag. Source: Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Office of Highway Safety 10

E-CIGARETTES: More Than Water Vapor What are E-Cigarettes? Electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) are battery-operated, electronic smoking devices designed to deliver nicotine, flavor and other chemicals. They turn these chemicals, including highly addictive nicotine, into an aerosol containing ultrafine, dangerous particles that are inhaled by the user. E-cigarettes are often marketed as a means of quitting smoking; however, statistics do not back up this claim. Are E-Cigarettes safe? According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), e-cigarettes have not been fully studied, so consumers currently don’t know: • The potential risks of e-cigarettes when used as intended • How much nicotine or other potentially harmful chemicals are being inhaled during use • Whether there are any benefits associated with using these products Additionally: • Using electronic smoking devices may lead young people to try other tobacco products, including traditional cigarettes. The rates of teenage e-smoking has dramatically increased in the past three years. • Because e-cigarettes are not currently FDA regulated, the user has no way of knowing exactly what chemicals are in them. We DO know that e-cigarettes give off tiny particles that can lodge in the lungs and cause disease. Some e-cigarettes have been found to give off formaldehyde, which is used in embalming fluid and has been shown to cause cancer. Substances in ecigarettes that are normally benign in food like vanilla, when heated and inhaled, can become highly dangerous to the lungs of the user as well as the lungs of anyone inhaling the aerosol. • E-cigarettes can be very dangerous to children. A CDC study has found the number of calls to poison control centers involving the e-juice containing nicotine have dramatically increased. E-cigarettes are not childproof, and even very small amounts of the liquid, either absorbed through the skin or ingested by a child, can be very dangerous. Side effects can include skin irritation, nausea, and vomiting, increased heart rate, and in a few cases, even death. E-cigarettes, contrary to popular belief, are much more than water vapor. Like traditional cigarettes, they pose their own set of risks. For more information, contact the Kentucky Center for Smoke Free Policy at www.kcsp.uky.edu or 859-323-4587.

Creating a Safe Sleep Environment for Your Baby:

What you can do to decrease the risk of SIDS? • Use a firm sleep surface such as a mattress in a safety-approved crib, covered by a fitted sheet • Do not use blankets or crib bumpers in your baby’s sleep area. • Keep stuffed animals, toys, pillows and blankets out of your baby’s sleep area. • Put baby in the same room with you to sleep such as a bassinet BESIDE the bed. • Do not put baby to sleep in your bed, on a couch or other soft surface either alone or with you. • Do not smoke or allow anyone else to smoke around your baby. • ALWAYS place baby on his/her back to sleep. • Breastfeed. • Do not keep the room where baby sleeps too hot.
