Do You Have Prediabetes? Take the Quiz
Prediabetes means a person’s blood glucose (sugar) level is higher than normal, but not high enough yet for a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes. If left untreated, prediabetes can progress into type 2 diabetes. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), if 1 in 3 American adults has prediabetes, that means it could be you, your favorite sibling, or your other sibling. Or you, your friend, your coworker -- well, you get the picture. It’s time to take the risk test to know where you stand.
