It’s real. It’s common. And most importantly, it’s reversible.
You can stop prediabetes from developing into type 2 diabetes with simple, proven lifestyle changes.
People can have prediabetes for years but have no clear symptoms, so it often goes unnoticed until serious health problems show up. That’s why it’s important to talk to your doctor about getting your blood sugar tested if you have any of the risk factors for prediabetes, which include:
- Being overweight.
- Being 45 years or older.
- Having a parent or sibling with type 2 diabetes.
- Being physically active fewer than 3 times a week.
- Ever having gestational diabetes or giving birth to a baby who weighed more than 9 pounds.
