Prediabetes is a serious and growing problem. Approximately 1 in 3 adults and 1 in 5 children living in the United States have prediabetes. Many people with prediabetes don’t know they have it. Prediabetes is a condition where blood sugar is higher than normal, but not high enough to be diagnosed as having type 2 diabetes. If people with prediabetes do not manage their condition, they are more likely to develop type 2 diabetes within five years. According to the Centers for Disease Control, the risk for developing prediabetes and type 2 diabetes is higher among Blacks/African Americans, Hispanics/Latinos, American Indians, Asian Americans, and Pacific Islanders.
