Prediabetes Raises Risk for Heart Attack, Stroke

Getting diagnosed with prediabetes—which means your blood sugar level is higher than normal—is a serious wake-up call. Without intervention, prediabetes often leads to type 2 diabetes and puts you at increased risk for heart disease and stroke. But this diagnosis doesn’t mean that you will definitely develop diabetes. There’s still time to turn things around.

Join family medicine physician Gary Grasmick, MD, for an interactive discussion on practical steps you can take to prevent prediabetes from becoming type 2 diabetes.
