Type 2 diabetes doesn’t happen overnight. It passes through a phase of prediabetes (or known as borderline diabetes) before a full-scale diabetes manifests. A typical phase of prediabetes may last 1-7 years. Let’s dive in to understand what is prediabetes and how it can be prevented or reversed.
What is prediabetes
Prediabetes or Borderline diabetes is a condition in which the blood glucose is higher than normal, but not high enough to be diagnosed as type 2 diabetes. Prediabetes is also known as Impaired Glucose Tolerance (IGT) or Impaired Fasting Glucose (IFG). 75% of people with Prediabetes progress to diabetes within 7 years.
Prediabetes is mostly diagnosed based on family history or annual health checkups.
Tests for prediabetes
Risks or complications of prediabetes
Most of the people with prediabetes have no symptoms but without proper management most prediabetics progress to develop type 2 diabetes. The consequences of type 2 diabetes can be disastrous with the onset of High blood pressure, High cholesterol, Heart disease, Stroke, Kidney disease, Nerve damage, Vision problems, possibly loss of vision and even amputations
Recent studies have also shown the linkage of Prediabetes to unrecognized (silent) heart attacks and kidney damage even without progression to type 2 diabetes.
