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? We can help!
