    00:01 I know I got another list for you here.

    00:03 But research supports that these conditions and events put you at a higher chance of developing type 2 diabetes, if you experienced them.

    00:11 First one, impaired glucose tolerance or impaired fasting glucose.

    00:16 Remember, there is a difference between normal glucose and diabetes.

    00:20 It's a period of time that sometimes we call it prediabetes.

    00:25 That means your blood sugar is running higher than it should, but it's not high enough for you to be diagnosed with diabetes.

    00:32 But this tells us, you're well on your way.

    00:35 High blood pressure.

    00:36 Wow, we know that people with diabetes have a risk for stroke and heart attack, right? And high blood pressure makes that even worse.

    00:45 High triglycerides also elevates the risk.

    00:48 If the patient has had gestational diabetes, meaning while they were pregnant, they developed gestational diabetes that usually last just during the pregnancy, this puts them at a higher risk for developing type 2 diabetes in the future.

    01:03 Well, I save the biggest for the last because Wow, this is impressive.

    01:08 If a female client has delivered a baby 4 kg (9 lb) or heavier, that also increases the risk of that patient, the mom, developing type 2 diabetes.

    01:22 Now, the fourth and final category is race or ethnicities.

    01:26 I wish I had an explanation for you, but I really don't.

    01:30 We just know that these ethnicities have a higher diabetes rates.

    01:35 So Pacific Islanders, Native Americans, African Americans, Asian Americans, and Asian Indians all have a higher rate of diabetes.

    01:47 Now's your chance to see how well you've encoded the information.

    01:52 What I want you to do is pause the video and see how many of the four categories you can list without looking at your notes.

    01:59 See, this is the best way to make sure that information is your own.

    02:02 Ready? List the four categories we just discussed.
