Prediabetes means your blood glucose (sugar) level is higher than normal, but not high enough to be diagnosed a diabetes. Prediabetes raises your risk of developing type 2 diabetes and heart disease. Without weight loss and/or physical activity, many people with the condition will go on to develop type 2 diabetes within 3 years. Type 2 diabetes is a serious condition that can lead to:
- Heart Attack
- Kidney Failure
- Loss of Toes, Feet, or Legs
- The lifestyle changes made through the Diabetes Prevention Program will help you prevent or delay onset of type 2 diabetes.
