identifying and treating patients with PRE-diabetes
You'll hear more about identifying and treating patients with PRE-diabetes.
They have glucose levels HIGHER than normal...but LOWER than the threshold for diabetes. Their plasma glucose is 100 to 125 mg/dL fasting...or 140 to 199 mg/dL after an oral glucose tolerance test.
People with these levels are at risk for developing diabetes and complications such as eye or kidney problems, neuropathies, etc.
