  • Prediabetes is when your blood sugar levels are higher than normal, but not high enough to be diagnosed with diabetes.
  • It is important to know you have prediabetes because heart issues/ nerve problems may start in prediabetes.
  • Changing your lifestyle and  weight loss can reduce the risk of progression from prediabetes to type 2 diabetes by almost 60%.
