  • More than 1 in 3 people in the United States have prediabetes, and most don’t know they have it. Prediabetes occurs when blood sugar levels are higher than normal, but not high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. Prediabetes increases the risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. To lower the risk of diabetes, you may have to change your lifestyle.
