Because there are no clear symptoms of prediabetes, it often goes undetected if not tested for.
So… Do I Have Pre-Diabetes?
Pre-diabetes is a blood glucose level that reads higher than normal, but is not yet high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. Having pre-diabetes puts you at a high risk of developing type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Just because your blood glucose levels have tested into the pre-diabetes range, does not mean you will automatically develop type 2 diabetes. In fact, with management and healthy lifestyle changes, you can lower your risk of type 2 diabetes and reverse the onset of pre-diabetes and even return your blood glucose levels back to normal range.
