You may be asking yourself what is prediabetes and why is it such a big deal? Prediabetes means a person’s blood glucose (sugar) level is higher than normal, but not high enough yet to be diagnosed with diabetes. People with prediabetes are on the road to develop type 2 diabetes within several years and are also at an increased risk for serious health problems such as stroke, heart disease, and kidney failure.
