Things You Should Know About Prediabetes

Prediabetes is a condition characterized by high blood sugar levels but not high enough to be classified as diabetes. The condition can remain undiagnosed and lead to complications during the later stage. If untreated, there is a high chance of prediabetes developing into type 2 diabetes. Therefore, it is important to be aware of the risk factors. Prediabetes is also commonly referred to as borderline diabetes. There has been a drastic increase in the cases of prediabetes, making the issue a global concern.

Prediabetes in India

When it comes to diabetes, India is one of the most highly affected countries. Around 70 million Indians have diabetes and the problem doesn’t stop there. Another major concern is that most of the cases remain undiagnosed. Prediabetes doesn’t show any symptoms. Only when the condition develops into diabetes, one can experience symptoms such as- increase in thirst, urination and hunger. Prediabetes can only be detected through screening. It can be picked up by an Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT), Fasting Glucose (FG) as well as Impaired Glucose Tolerance (IGT).

How to Intervene Prediabetes

Early detection can easily help in preventing the condition from growing further. Few lifestyle changes can help in a big way to return elevated blood glucose levels to the normal range. Losing few kilos can easily make a lot of difference. Healthy food choices along with 30-45 minutes of exercise routine can help you in reversing the condition. This also helps in reducing the risk of heart attack or a stroke. Your doctor can help you learn more about prediabetes and its prevention. All this is possible only after you get a sugar test.
