WHAT IS PREDIABETES?
Your doctor may have used the term “prediabetes” in an office visit, or you may have heard a friend or family member use the term. In simple terms, having prediabetes means your blood sugar levels are higher than normal but the levels are not high enough for you to be diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. About one in three people has prediabetes. Additionally, about 84% of people with prediabetes do not know they have prediabetes.
Could you have prediabetes? In general, people who are overweight, 45 or older, have a family member (parent, sibling) with Type 2 diabetes and/or are physically inactive face a greater risk. Women who have had gestational diabetes (diabetes during pregnancy) also are at a greater risk.
