More than 84% of adults with prediabetes don’t know they have it. You may be asking yourself… do I have prediabetes?

Prediabetes is when your blood sugar is higher than normal but not high enough yet to be diagnosed as diabetes. Factors like being overweight or physically inactive put you at risk for prediabetes. If left untreated, prediabetes can turn into diabetes, which can lead to other serious health issues like heart disease, stroke and kidney failure.

The good news? CentraState’s Diabetes Prevention Program can actually help you reverse prediabetes. Our diabetes experts will teach you how to set achievable health goals and make gradual lifestyle changes like eating healthier, moving more, managing your weight and reducing stress.
