What are the Signs and Symptoms of Prediabetes
The symptoms of prediabetes are actually as it is an early onset or early warning condition sometimes not so noticeable as they may become developed over a period of time.
The signs of prediabetes can include some of the Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes signs such as:
- An increased thirst
- Urinating more often than usual, particularly at night
- Feeling very tired or fatigued
- Frequent episodes of thrush
- Blurred vision (caused by the lens of the eye becoming dry)
You may only discover it when you go for a health check one day, and your doctor gives you the shock of your life when out of the blue he tells you, you are suffering from prediabetes.
All these questions will start rushing through your head “Well what are the symptoms of prediabetes and what exactly is prediabetes anyway?” As a matter of fact, scientists in labs never refer to prediabetes. This is a term coined by a doctor once upon a time, but the actual condition is called borderline diabetes. In many ways, the term prediabetes is confusing, and borderline diabetes, describes the condition more accurately.
The scientific definition of Prediabetes is people at risk of diabetes because they have impaired glucose metabolism, but who do not meet the criteria for diabetes.
