Maw-Maw has learned that pre-diabetes is when the amount of glucose a.k.a. sugar in your blood, is above normal yet not high enough to be called diabetes. With pre-diabetes, your chances of getting Type 2 diabetes (type 2 is where you will need to take special medications and maybe shots), and also chances of getting heart disease, and strokes become higher. But it can be controlled and the predisposing factors (these are the things that causes diabetes, the predisposing factors) they can be controlled. Proper diet and excersize is a start. But in short, we can do something about it.
