Understanding pre-diabetes

Pre-diabetes is a condition in which blood glucose levels are higher than normal, but not high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes.


Pre-diabetes has no signs or symptoms, making it difficult to detect. It is a risk factor for the development of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease, such as heart disease and stroke. Pre-diabetes affects about 16% of Australian adults.
