What Prediabetes is Trying to Tell You

Woman whispering in man's ear

Did you know that people can have prediabetes for years without any clear symptoms? It often goes unnoticed until serious health problems show up, like type 2 diabetes or heart disease. But if you find out you have prediabetes early, you could make lifestyle changes proven to help safeguard your health.  
Knowing your risk is the first step. If you have any of these risk factors for prediabetes, don’t wait—talk to your doctor about getting your blood sugar tested:
  • Being overweight
  • Being 45 years or older
  • Having a parent or sibling with type 2 diabetes
  • Being physically active less than 3 times a week
  • Ever having gestational diabetes (diabetes while pregnant) or giving birth to a baby who weighed more than 9 pounds
  • Being African American, Hispanic/Latino American, American Indian, Pacific Islander, or Asian American 
Want to find out your risk right now? Take the 1-minute quiz at DoIHavePrediabetes.org and be sure to share the results with your doctor.
