Doctor testing a patient's blood sugar


A little fatigue. An extra five pounds you can’t shake. A bruise that just won’t heal. None of these symptoms are especially eyebrow-raising on their own. But taken together, they could be signs of a silent epidemic that’s affecting more and more Americans across the country: pre-diabetes. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says that at least 80 plus million Americans—more than one in three—have the condition, which is marked by blood sugar levels that are higher than normal, but not high enough to qualify as diabetic. But as many as nine in 10 sufferers don’t know they have it. Still, there are signs and symptoms you can watch out for. And you should, since pre-diabetes can be treated and reversed through dietary tweaks and healthy lifestyle changes when it’s caught earlier. But the longer it goes undiagnosed and untreated, the greater the chance of it turning into full-blown diabetes, which is much harder to rebound from.Learn what key symptoms, diagnostic markers and innovative treatments will uncover the root cause of Pre-Diabetes and hopefully prevent Type 2 Diabetes which in itself is the gate way to numerous chronic diseases.
