Eighty-eight million American adults — more than one out of three — have prediabetes and the majority do not know they have it. With prediabetes your blood sugar levels are higher than normal but not high enough to be diagnosed as type 2 diabetes.
If you ignore prediabetes, your risk for type 2 diabetes goes up. Type 2 diabetes increases your risk for serious health complications, such as blindness, kidney failure, heart disease, stroke and loss of extremities.
