Prediabetes affects an estimated 84 million Americans, but only 1 in 10 know they have it. Without weight loss or routine moderate physical activity, many of them will develop type 2 diabetes, putting them at risk for kidney failure; blindness; heart attack; stroke; or loss of toes, feet, or legs.

Prediabetes may lead to diabetes, but it doesn’t have to.
