What is pre-diabetes?

Impaired fasting glycaemia (IFG) is a pre-diabetic state of dysglycemia, associated with insulin resistance and increased risk cardiovascular pathology, although of lesser risk than Impaired glucose tolerance (IGT). IFG may precede type 2 diabetes mellitus by many years.
It is characterised by an intermediately raised fasting glucose level, but less than would qualify for type 2 diabetes mellitus. On challenging with an oral glucose tolerance test, normal blood glucose levels are maintained after 2 hours, unlike IGT.
Fasting glucose level will be between 100 to 126 mg/dL.
Impaired Glucose Tolerance (IGT) is a pre-diabetic state of dysglycemia, that is associated with insulin resistance and increased risk of cardiovascular pathology. IGT may precede type 2 diabetes mellitus by many years.
Impaired glucose tolerance is defined as two-hour glucose levels of 140 to 199 mg per dL (7.8 to 11.0 mmol) on the 75-g oral glucose tolerance test. A patient is said to be under the condition of IGT when he/she has an intermediately raised glucose level after 2 hours, but less than would qualify for type 2 diabetes mellitus. The fasting glucose may be either normal or mildly elevated. From 10 to 15 percent of adults in the United States have one of these conditions.
The risk of progression to diabetes and development of cardiovacular disease is greater than for Impaired fasting glycaemia.
Though there are some drugs that can delay the onset of diabetes, lifestyle changes play a greater role in prevention of diabetes. Patients identified as having an IGT should exercise regularly and have a balanced diet removing the empty calories of sugar.
Please see the web pages for more details Impaired fasting glycaemia, Impaired glucose tolerance and Diabetes Mellitus.

There isn't such a thing. I know, this is what your doctor told you, but the reality is that you either are or are not diabetic.

However, it can be possible to control Type II diabetes through diet and exercise alone. You want to look for a book called "What to Eat When You Have Diabetes", and to check the websites that I list below.

It is not an old term. My doctor, an endocrinologist, describes it as " You do not have diabetes but it is whispering in your ear."
I took two diabetes fasting test three months apart and passed one and failed one.
The easiest way to prevent sliding in to type 2 diabetes is to start eating right and walk a half hour briskly each day. The walk will decrease the chance of developing diabetes by 70%. Catching it now will help prevent other problems.

pre diabetes is a fasting blood sugar running very close to hi normal..blood sugar should be 120 or below..

having elevated sugar levels after a night time fast. If you or someone else has a blood mointor - fast overnight and check your AM reading. If your reading is between 90 and 110 your pre -diabetic - Over those numbers, your a full fledged members and this could lead to early death

What was called pre-diabetes is now either Stage 1 type 2 or IR (Insulin resistance). IR can lead to other health problems other than diabetes. Things like heart problems, hypertension, etc.

IR can be controlled for up to 30+ years without medication if caught in time. You will need to do a complete life style change which mean diet and exercise.

I was diagnose with IR (stage 1 type 2) 3 years ago. After being misdiagnosed for over 2 years by local doctors. You will have many issues that diabetics do like UT infections, tiredness, joint aches, etc. All this can be controlled by controlling you sugar/carb intake.

Pre-diabetes is also known as Insulin resistance or Metabolic syndrome. Though your Glucose tolerance test is normal, your insulin levels remain high. If this goes untreated, then you become diabetic. Consult an endocrinologist and you will be prescribed a medicine for this. I am taking Metlong for over 2 years and it has helped reduce my insulin level.

Go to the American Diabetes Association to learn more about pre-diabetes:
Before people develop type 2 diabetes, they almost always have "pre-diabetes" -- blood glucose levels that are higher than normal but not yet high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. There are 54 million people in the United States who have pre-diabetes.

Go the the American Diabetes Association site to learn more about pre-diabetes:

Most doctors don't even use this phrase any more. It meant that they found you blood sugars were higher than they should be but they didn't feel they were high enough to classify you as diabetic. The American diabetes association now feels that anyone with blood sugars above 120 is considered a diabetic.

As meaningless as being "a little" pregnant.

I was in pre-diabetes for many years, according to my docotr.
It means, that you are vulnerable to getting the disease, DIABETES. - and NOW iis the best time to find out what elevates your blood sugar, so that you can delay or prevent getting diabetes.
1. Get a blood sugar monitor
2. Find out what your blood sugar level should be
3. Find out what keeps your blood sugar in the normal ranges.
4. Take steps to get into the normal range so that you can reduce the risk of getting diabetes.
5. Get the book Diabetes for Dummies it's the very best explanation of everything that I have ever seen.

Do it NOW so that you have more years left.

Its an old fashioned term not often used these days;
