Pre-diabetes is a condition where a person’s blood sugar is higher than normal, but not high enough to be considered diabetes. Many adults in Indiana have pre-diabetes and don’t even know – this could be you or your mom, dad or another family member. It is estimated that 1 in 3 adult Hoosiers have pre-diabetes and half of the people over the age of 60 have prediabetes, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Most concerning, 90% of those people with pre-diabetes do not know they have it. If timely lifestyle changes are not made, the CDC estimates 15 to 30% of these people with prediabetes can expect to develop type 2 diabetes in the next five years.
