This means your risk is probably low for having prediabetes now. Keep your risk low. If you're overweight, lose weight. Be active most days, and don't use tobacco. Eat low-fat meals with fruits, vegetables, and whole-grain foods. If you have high cholesterol or high blood pressure, talk to your health care provider about your risk for type 2 diabetes.
This means your risk is high for having prediabetes. Please make an appointment with your health care provider soon. If you don't have insurance and can't afford a visit to your provider, contact your local health department.
Prediabetes means your blood glucose (sugar) is higher than normal, but not yet diabetes. Diabetes is a serious disease that can cause heart attack, stroke, blindness, kidney failure, or loss of 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.
Thirty-five percent of U.S. adults have prediabetes, but just 7% know they have it. Prediabetes increases the risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. Place this CDC Prediabetes Screening Test widget on your home page, on your portal home page, or in your blog to help others learn their risk for prediabetes and type 2 diabetes, and whether they should follow up with a doctor to take steps to protect their health.
