What is Prediabetes?
Pre-diabetes or borderline diabetes means that your blood sugar levels are higher than normal, but are not high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. Your body always has some sugar in it because the body needs sugar for energy to keep it going. But too much sugar in the blood is not good for your health.
