Prediabetes is a condition where blood sugar levels are higher than normal, but not yet high enough to be classified as type 2 diabetes.

This stage acts as a warning sign, indicating a high risk of developing type 2 diabetes if lifestyle changes, such as improving diet and increasing physical activity, are not adopted.

People with prediabetes typically don’t experience noticeable symptoms. Diagnosis of the condition is straightforward and can be done during a routine doctor’s visit. The A1c blood test, which measures average blood glucose control over the past 2 to 3 months, is commonly used for this purpose.
