Am I Prediabetic? Check Your Symptoms To Find Out
How many people have prediabetes? Could you be at risk of having prediabetes? Risk factors include a family history of diabetes, high blood pressure, extra weight, not being active, and others, which combine to elevate your blood sugars and cause Type 2 Diabetes over time. Prediabetes is stage 1 diabetes, and Prediabetes (also known as impaired glucose tolerance) is becoming increasingly more common. More than 1 out of 3 American adults have it, totaling about 86 million, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Of these, nearly 9 out of 10 are unaware they have it, making them more vulnerable to diabetes since they are not under care for their prediabetes.
