Diabetes Prevention & Prediabetes

What is Prediabetes?


Prediabetes is when blood glucose (blood sugar) levels are higher than normal, but not high enough to be diagnosed as type 2 diabetes. If nothing is done, prediabetes could lead to heart disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes. But with lifestyle change, prediabetes can be stopped or slowed. To determine your risk, take this 1 minute risk assessment.
