Why Is This Important?
Prediabetes occurs when your blood sugar level is higher than normal, but not high enough to be diagnosed as type 2 diabetes. Without intervention, prediabetes will likely develop into type 2 diabetes within 10 years. However, progression isn't inevitable. Healthy lifestyle changes such as diet and exercise can bring your blood sugar level back to normal.
The proportion of adults who have ever been told by a doctor, nurse or other health professional that they had prediabetes.
