More on being prediabetic
Prediabetes is a medical condition where an individual expresses an abnormally higher blood sugar level but not high enough to qualify as type 2 diabetes. It is a new term that is in current use by medics to replace what was initially known as impaired fasting glucose or impaired glucose tolerance, which is the two major characteristics of prediabetes.
The condition, arises majorly due to the loss of the ability of the body to tolerate insulin (insulin intolerance) or low production of insulin. These lead to accumulation of blood sugar to a level that is higher than normal but not high enough to be classified as diabetes.
Prediabetes in itself is an early warning for type 2 diabetes and has a number of signs though most of them may go unnoticed. To calculate your risk of getting diabetes, use this diabetes risk calculator!
