BCH Lecture: How to Stop Prediabetes from Becoming Diabetes 7/21/21

  • Category: Primary Care

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.

You can hear board-certified internist Dr. Richard Barnett describe how prediabetes is diagnosed and practical steps you can take to prevent or delay type 2 diabetes.
