What Does It Mean to Have Prediabetes?

Prediabetes is a condition that a person has prior to developing type 2 diabetes. It means that blood glucose levels are higher than the normal range, but not yet high enough to be defined as diabetes. There are no clear symptoms that indicate prediabetes, however, the following test results of A1C, fasting blood glucose (FPG ) and Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT) show prediabetes:

  • A1C of 5.7% – 6.4%
  • FBG of 100 – 125 mg/dl
  • OGTT 2-hour blood glucose of 140 mg/dl – 199 mg/dl
