Do you have prediabetes? Have you been told your blood sugar levels are too high? Our primary goal at Banner Health is prevention. We’ll work with you to help you improve your blood sugar levels to prevent or delay a more serious condition.
Prediabetes is a medical condition where your blood sugar levels are too high but not high enough to be labeled type 2 diabetes. Since there are no symptoms that go along with prediabetes, blood sugar level screenings are important. Talk with your doctor and ask if you should be screened for prediabetes.
A prediabetes diagnosis can be a blessing. The advantage is that you may be able to make lifestyle changes and prevent it from turning into type 2 diabetes. This form of diabetes is a serious, lifelong condition. Weight loss, a healthy diet and regular exercise can help improve your blood sugar levels.
At Banner Health, we offer screenings, education and support to help you manage prediabetes.
