More than 84 million Americans – or, one in three adults – have prediabetes, and 90% of them don’t know they have it, according to the CDC. Don’t let the “pre” fool you - prediabetes is a serious condition that can lead to type 2 diabetes and raise your risk for heart disease and stroke.

The good news is that prediabetes can be reversed – but only if you get a diagnosis and make lifestyle changes, like losing weight, eating healthier, and being more active – changes that will help prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes.

Here’s what you can do:

Go to to take a 1-minute risk test. (Since January 2016, more than 2 million people have visited, and close to 2 million people have completed the prediabetes risk test.)

Talk to your doctor about your prediabetes risk and get a blood test to confirm a potential diagnosis.

If you do have prediabetes, enroll in the CDC’s National Diabetes Prevention Program. ( shows them how to sign up.)

Prediabetes is reversible

The CDC says that prediabetes can be a health wake-up call for many and with early diagnosis, the condition can be reversed. And remember: anyone can be that 1 in 3.
