Understanding How Prediabetes Develops into Diabetes

difference-between-prediabetes-and-diabetesType 2 diabetes doesn’t happen overnight. About 79 million Americans are slowly developing the disease, and most are unaware of the symptoms until it’s too late.

Prediabetes, sometimes referred to as impaired glucose tolerance (ICG) or impaired fasting glucose (IFG), is an unhealthy bodily state that comes before diabetes. More than 10% of people with prediabetes become diabetic within three years, and the rest will likely become diabetic after ten years – unless they take control of their health.

This doesn’t mean that people with prediabetes are safe. Excess blood sugar and insulin resistance in prediabetics causes damage to the heart and circulatory system. People with prediabetes may also suffer from symptoms of fully developed diabetes.

Remember, prediabetes doesn’t always become diabetes. Making healthy decisions can reverse the process. People who are overweight should be tested, especially if they have additional risk factors like high blood pressure, high triglycerides or a family history of diabetes.
