What if I’m at Risk?
Contact Your Health Care Provider
Only your health care provider can tell for sure if you do have type 2 diabetes or prediabetes, a condition in which blood glucose levels are higher than normal but not yet high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. Talk to your health care provider to see if additional testing is needed.
The earlier the condition is diagnosed, the sooner treatment can begin.
