Prediabetes means that your blood glucose levels are raised, but still below the level for you to be diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.
If you have prediabetes you have a high risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
There are no symptoms of pre-diabetes. You may not feel any different. The only way to know about prediabetes is through a blood test, which your GP can order.
Being at risk does not mean you will definitely develop type 2 diabetes. You have an opportunity to start making some changes to your lifestyle to prevent or delay type 2 diabetes.
