The numbers don't lie—1 in 3 American adults has prediabetes.
With a little exercise and a change in diet, it often can be reversed. Let's face it,
there are millions of reasons why we don't find the time to make healthy lifestyle choices.
Kids, jobs, cat videos on the Internet — we're busy. But whatever your reason, prediabetes
is real. Congratulations on taking your first steps and find out if you have prediabetes
by taking the test now. You won't regret it.
So What Is Prediabetes?
Prediabetes means a person's blood glucose (sugar) level is higher than normal, but not
high enough yet to be diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. People with prediabetes are on the
road to develop type 2 diabetes and are also at increased risk for serious health problems
such as stroke and heart disease.
Prediabetes often can be reversed through lifestyle changes such as increased physical activity
and weight loss. The earlier people are diagnosed with prediabetes, the more likely that they
can reverse it and prevent type 2 diabetes. Still have questions?
What can I do?
The good news is you can reduce your risk for type 2 diabetes and gain tools for healthy living.
