I love, love, love my best friend "L". She is sweet, smart, hard working and super funny. She is also relatively young, just graduated from college, and the four years that I have known her she has always been a little overweight (mostly in the belly area). We used to work at Whole Foods together, so she does get her fair share of veggies and grains…but she does not have the healthiest diet out there. She lives in a big city so she does get a lot of walking done in a day. Lately, she has been experiencing a lot of fatigue as well as some other health issues, and I want her to get checked for pre-diabetes. I don't really know how to start the subject with her, since I know it is a sensitive one and I don't want to hurt her feelings. I feel that it is even more important than ever for her to go and have her health checked on, since she decided to move to Europe for a couple of months and is leaving in a month. Once she leaves, she won't have the same health coverage and most likely will never get checked. Any advice on how I should bring the subject up?
