Pre-diabetes is a condition in which a person’s blood sugar level is chronic, but not high enough to indicate complete diabetes. This means that a combination of risk factors leads you to type 2 diabetes and all its adverse health consequences. According to some estimates, type 2 diabetes can reduce your life by 10 years.
The good news is that prediabetes is reversible.
