Prediabetes

Prediabetes Research and Treatment Methods: Prediabetes is defined as having an HbA1c between 5.7 and 6.4% or a fasting glucose between 100 and 126 mg/dl. According to the NDEP, approximately 86 million people in the US have prediabetes. These people are subject to many of the same risks as diabetes patients. Prediabetes typically progresses to diabetes if the patient’s lifestyle remains the same. Beta cell destruction occurs, and the patient’s ability to maintain glucose homeostasis is further compromised. For this reason and others, many professionals believe that prediabetes is mislabeled and should be considered diabetes. New tools, techniques and guidance can help you improve outcomes for your prediabetes patients.
