About Prediabetes

Prediabetes is a diagnosis that warns that your blood glucose levels are higher than they should be, but not high enough yet to be diagnosed as Type 2 diabetes. Prediabetes puts you at high risk for developing heart disease, too. You should be screened for prediabetes if you are older than 45 and overweight, or younger than 45 and are habitually inactive, have a family history of diabetes, have high blood pressure, have polycystic ovary syndrome or have a history of vascular disease.
