Wellness Wednesday: Type 4 Diabetes

Type 1 Diabetes, Type 2 Diabetes, Pre-diabetes, Gestational Diabetesโ€ฆ.

These types of diabetes are well known to most of us.

Diabetes Type 3c, LADA, MODY, Neonatal...

Unless you have been diagnosed or know someone with these conditions, most people are unaware of them.

How about Type 4 Diabetes?

That's right, it's true.

Although Type 4 diabetes is not an official type, it is very close to becoming so.

In general, type 4 diabetes affects the elderly without a history of diabetes. The aging process can cause blood sugar levels and A1c numbers to rise.

A few studies have been done on this, but Healthline has provided a helpful guide that discusses type 4 diabetes and what to look out for.
