Exercise can prevent prediabetes and T2 diabetes

Stats from JAMA Pediatics:

In the United States, about 1 of 5 adolescents [12-18 y.o.] and 1 of 4 young adults [19-34 y.o.] have prediabetes. The adjusted prevalence of prediabetes is higher in male individuals and in people with obesity. Adolescents and young adults with prediabetes also present an unfavorable cardiometabolic risk profile, putting them both at increased risk of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular diseases.

I’m doing my part to prevent conversion of prediabetes to type 2 diabetes.
