Understanding prediabetes and how might it affect you

With prediabetes, early detection may be key. Like the name implies, prediabetes may heighten the chance of developing diabetes — but only if your lifestyle remains unchanged.1 The “if” may be significant. If you have risk factors and do nothing different,2 prediabetes may become type 2 diabetes3 (and potentially raise your risk of developing cardiovascular disease and stroke,4 too). It’s important to talk with your doctor about possible warning signs of prediabetes and how to make healthy lifestyle changes.5
