Answers to Common Diabetes Questions

Premier Health providers answer frequently asked questions about diabetes.

What are Long-term Effects of Pre-diabetes?

If you’ve been diagnosed with pre-diabetes, it means your blood sugar level is higher than normal, but not quite high enough to be full-blown diabetes, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

You can make changes in your diet and exercise routine now in hopes of preventing pre-diabetes from progressing to type 2 diabetes – a more severe form of the disease.

Diabetes is chronic and will need to be managed for the rest of your life.

Ask your doctor about your pre-diabetes or steps you can take to keep it from progressing to diabetes.
