Prediabetes is a huge problem in the US, and around the world. It is a serious condition where blood sugar levels are higher than normal, but not high enough to be diagnosed as type 2 diabetes.
Without making lifestyle changes, you’re at risk of developing type 2 diabetes, a serious condition that can lead to stroke, blindness, heart attack, kidney failure, or loss of limbs. It is a diagnosis that can’t be reversed.
The changes you make with the Prediabetes And Me online program will help you prevent or delay type 2 diabetes.
