What Is Pre-Diabetes?

Before people develop Type 2 Diabetes, they almost always have “pre-diabetes” — blood glucose levels that are higher than normal, but not yet high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. In the United States, 41 million people, ages 40 to 74, have pre-diabetes.

If you have been diagnosed with pre-diabetes, you should take it seriously. Research shows that damage to the heart and circulatory system may already be occurring during pre-diabetes. Research has also shown that if you take action to manage your blood glucose when you have pre-diabetes, you can delay or even prevent type 2 diabetes. People with pre-diabetes benefit from the same advice about nutrition and physical activity as those who have already developed type 2.
