What is Pre-Diabetes

Before some one gets diabetes, there is always a period of prediabetes – the condition in which blood glucose levels are higher then normal but not high enough to be labelled as diabetes. Prediabetes is reffered as impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) or impaired fasting glucose (IFG), depending upon what test was used when it was detected. Prediabetes can put you at higher risk for developing diabetes and heart disease.
