*What is Prediabetes?
Prediabetes means you have a higher than normal blood sugar level. It’s not high enough to be considered type 2 diabetes yet, but without lifestyle changes, adults and children with prediabetes are more likely to develop type 2 diabetes.

*Importance of prediabetes
Prediabetes puts you at increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and stroke

*What are the Symptoms?
If you have symptoms, you might notice that:
-You’re a lot thirstier than usual.
-You pee a lot.
-Your vision is blurry.
-You’re a lot more tired than usual.

*How Prediabetes is diagnosed?
A blood sample is taken after you fast for at least eight hours or overnight. In general: A fasting blood sugar level below 100 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL) — 5.6 millimoles per liter (mmol/L) — is considered normal. A fasting blood sugar level from 100 to 125 mg/dL (5.6 to 7.0 mmol/L ) is considered prediabetes

*What is the treatment?
Treatment may include lifestyle modifications, such as diet and exercise, and medication. If you have prediabetes and don’t make lifestyle changes, you could develop type 2 diabetes within 10 years,
A large number of prediabetes cases gradually progress into diabetes. With proper lifestyle changes, it’s possible to reverse this condition and lead a normal life.
