What is pre-diabetes?

The NHS‘ website explains: “Pre-diabetes is where blood sugar levels are abnormally high, but lower than the threshold for diagnosing diabetes.

“Around 5-10% of people with prediabetes will go on to progress to ‘full-blown’ type-2 diabetes in any given years.”

Type-2 diabetes is where the body does not produce enough insulin or its cells do not react to insulin.

The NHS says that it is important for doctors to diagnose diabetes early, as it gets progressively worse if untreated.
