Have you ever been diagnosed as having prediabetes? Prediabetes is a condition in which a person has elevated blood sugar levels, but does not yet have type 2 diabetes mellitus. It is a serious condition, and must be taken seriously.
Prediabetes is not the same as diabetes; however, if left untreated it will turn into diabetes (if treated it will go away entirely). All diabetics at one point had prediabetes.
Unfortunately once you have diabetes you can never go back to the way things were before. Is that what you really want?
Get a blood test as soon as possible. And if you have prediabetes — or diabetes — you need to do something about it before it is too late.
