Pre-Diabetes Information

There are 57 million people in the United States who have pre-diabetes, and many don't know it. According to the American Diabetes Association, pre-diabetes occurs when blood sugar reaches levels that are higher than normal but not yet high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. Recent research has shown that long-term damage to the body, especially the heart and circulatory system, may already be occurring during per-diabetes. Research has also shown that if you take action to manage your blood sugar when you have pre-diabetes, you can delay or prevent Type 2 diabetes from ever developing.

Know your risks for pre-diabetes and take action to prevent diabetes if you have, or are at risk for, pre-diabetes. The Diabetes Prevention Program study conclusively showed that people with pre-diabetes can prevent the development of Type 2 diabetes by making changes in their diet and increasing their level of physical activity.
