2. Pre-diabetes goes by several names
Prediabetes is also referred to as hyperglycemia, which defines an excess amount of glucose in the bloodstream. It is also called metabolic or insulin resistance syndrome, which is manes that the body does not properly respond to the insulin that it produces.
Whether it is referred to as pre-diabetes, hyperglycemia, metabolic, or insulin resistance syndrome, you have a blood sugar level that is considered higher than normal, but not high enough to be diagnosed as type 2 diabetes. If pre-diabetes is not attended to, you will likely develop type 2 diabetes.
