Don’t pass 126, because diabetes has no easy fix!

Once your blood sugar exceeds 126 mg/dL, you become a diabetic for life!

Our goal at Daily Dose of Sugar is to educate pre-diabetic people who may have rising blood sugar levels to test their blood sugar NOW, because once their fasting blood-glucose concentration passes 126 mg/dL, they will be DIABETIC FOREVER. Diabetes is irreversible.We hope to save 88 million people from diabetes by raising awareness about checking blood sugar levels.

 

According to the CDC, in 2020, 34 million Americans are diabetic, and over 20% of them(7.3 million people) are undiagnosed. 88 million Americans are pre-diabetic, and over 84% of them (74 million people) are undiagnosed. Diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death in the United States. According to the American Diabetes Association, in 2017, the direct medical cost of diabetes was $237 billion and the cost of reduced productivity was $90 billion.

Our goal at Daily Dose of Sugar is to educate the 88 million pre-diabetic people in the United States about the importance of checking their blood sugar levels at least twice a year. Most people do not understand that once their blood glucose levels pass 126 mg/dL, they will become diabetic for life. We hope to prevent 88 million people from passing that threshold so they can live diabetes free.

What People Say

“When my glucose levels and blood pressure started to increase, I knew I had to do something to reduce my risk of developing type 2 diabetes. When I mentioned my concerns to a friend, she told me about CDC-recognized lifestyle change programs. I love the support and encouragement I get from the other program participants and the lifestyle coach. I enjoy making lifestyle changes such as cutting back on red meat and sugary drinks. I now keep my bike at work and take lunch-break rides around town to stay active!”

Ethan Shaw

“As a medical librarian in a hospital, I knew I needed to make changes to my lifestyle to stay out of the hospital as a patient—but I had a hard time actually doing it. Then I found a CDC-recognized lifestyle change program. I was motivated to join the program to make sure I could play with my grandchildren for many years to come. I enjoy the program because I have met many people who also struggle with diet and exercise. We share healthy recipes and motivate each other to exercise.”

"I’ve always loved food, and I never paid that much attention to what I ate before. My father had type 2 diabetes, and he passed away… I started noticing tingling in my hands, tingling in my feet, and started thinking I might be getting type 2 diabetes, and I needed to make a change."

"After the death of my mother and a diagnosis of prediabetes, I was motivated to make healthy changes in my life to prevent type 2 diabetes. I was overweight and had high cholesterol, high glucose levels, and poor eating habits. I joined a CDC-recognized lifestyle change program to take control of my life. "
