Prediabetes

Are you at risk?

Prediabetes means your blood glucose (sugar) is higher than normal, but not yet diabetes. Diabetes is a serious disease, which can cause heart attack, stroke, blindness, kidney failure, or loss of toes, feet or legs. 

Type 2 diabetes can be delayed or prevented in people with prediabetes, through effective lifestyle programs. Take the first step. Find out your risk for prediabetes.  

If you have these risk factors, you may be at higher risk than others for prediabetes and type 2 diabetes: 

  • Overweight
  • 45 years of age or older 
  • Have a parent or sibling with type 2 diabetes 
  • Physically active fewer than 3 times per week 
  • Had diabetes while pregnant (gestational diabetes)

Who is eligible?

To participate in the program, patients must: 

  • Be at least 18 years old 
  • Be overweight (BMI ≥ 24; ≥ 22 if Asian) 
  • Have no previous diagnosis of type 1 or type 2 diabetes
