Approximately 1 in 3 adults are prediabetic. Just because it’s “prediabetic” doesn’t mean it is not serious. Prediabetes means that your blood sugar is higher than normal, but not high enough to be diagnosed with diabetes.
Warning signs of prediabetes include: increased thirst, frequent urination, fatigue, and excess hunger, but sometimes prediabetes have no clear symptoms. Risk factors include: Obesity, being older than 45 years old and having a family member diagnosed with diabetes.
Prediabetes can lead to diabetes and other serious conditions if left untreated. Thankfully prediabetes is reversible with simple lifestyle changes.
