Are You Pre-Diabetic?
Before people develop type 2 diabetes, they usually develop pre-diabetes first. This is when your blood sugar levels are higher than normal but not yet high enough to indicate a diagnosis of full blown diabetes. Pre-diabetes generally has no symptoms. Without intervention, 15% to 30% of people with pre-diabetes will develop type 2 diabetes within 5 years.
It is estimated that 37% of Americans have pre-diabetes, but only 7% are aware of it. If you apply these statistics to Wright County; 33,749 people may be pre-diabetic and only 2, 362 know it. With numbers like this, it’s important to learn about pre-diabetes because diabetes is a serious disease.
