According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), more than 86 million American adults suffer from pre-diabetes, which is higher than normal blood sugar levels, putting them at risk for full-blown diabetes. 90% who have pre-diabetes don't even know they have it, and are more likely to experience heart disease or stroke. Prevention can be as simple as adjusting how and what you eat and exercising.
“Without intervention, pre-diabetes is likely to become type 2 diabetes in 10 years or less,” according to the Mayo Clinic. Talk to your doctor about ordering the A1C blood test to find out if you have pre-diabetes.
