Pre-diabetes is characterised by the presence of a higher than normal blood glucose level but which is below the diabetic levels. It is also closely related to obesity. If untreated, pre-diabetes usually develops into type 2 diabetes.
The good news is that research trials have shown the onset of type 2 diabetes could be prevented, or significantly delayed, by losing weight and increasing physical activity. See the evidence from Finnish Diabetes Prevention Study (Lancet, 2006)
