About 90-95% of diabetes cases are Type 2. With type 2 diabetes, your body doesn’t use insulin well and can’t keep blood sugar at normal levels. Your body produces insulin but does not use it well or make enough. Type 2 develops over many years and is usually diagnosed in adults (but more and more in children, teens, and young adults). You may not notice any symptoms, so it’s important to get your blood sugar tested if you’re at risk. You can prevent or delay with healthy lifestyle changes, such as losing weight, eating healthy food, and being active. Pre-diabetes is when blood sugar levels are higher than normal, but not high enough yet to be diagnosed as type 2 diabetes. In the United States, 88 million adults—more than 1 in 3—have prediabetes. More than 84% of them don’t know they have it.6 Prediabetes raises your risk for type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. The good news is that lifestyle changes can help persons with pre-diabetes take healthy steps to reverse it.
