An estimated 86 million Americans have prediabetes, and 90 percent of them don’t know they have it.
Prediabetes can lead to type 2 diabetes and its many serious complications. It’s crucial for people to know their risk because prediabetes can be reversed with healthy food choices, weight loss, exercise, other lifestyle changes and medication.
