A 25-year old American man was so afraid that he could be suffering from diabetes that he immediately made drastic changes to his lifestyle and lost nearly 80kgs (175lbs) in 11 months.
University of Alabama graduate, Will Nevin experienced tingling sensations in his legs and later on felt that he was having a heart attack after experiencing tightness in his chest while on a road trip.
While he did not reveal his symptoms to anyone, he started visiting his university gym and went on 3 mile walks after fearing that there might be something seriously wrong with his health.
Eventually he lost a lot of weight and cannot believe that he is now fit and in fine fettle. Needless to say his so-called pre-diabetic symptoms are now a thing of the past.
