One in seven people over age 50 suffers from impaired glucose tolerance, which consists of the elevation of blood sugar levels after eating. In the majority of cases, this intolerance develops as a result of obesity and associated metabolic syndrome. If the person does not take concrete measures (low weight, controlling their diet and regularly practice exercise) when this problem is diagnosed, the direct consequence is diabetes, which grows to great strides and has become a serious problem for public health, particularly by its high prevalence among young people and children. It is estimated that one in ten people who suffer from impaired glucose tolerance will develop type 2 diabetes and it is estimated that in thirty years, the rate of people with diabetes around the world may grow in more than one hundred percent.
