88 million American adults — more than 1 out of 3 — have prediabetes.
More than 8 in 10 adults with prediabetes don’t know they have it.
With prediabetes your blood sugar levels are higher than normal but not high enough yet to be diagnosed as type 2 diabetes.
Prediabetes increases your risk of:
- Type 2 diabetes
- Heart disease
If you have prediabetes, losing weight by eating healthy and being more active can cut your risk of getting type 2 diabetes in half.
