An estimated 2.5 million (1 in 3) North Carolinians may have prediabetes. Without
lifestyle changes to improve their health, 15 - 30% of people with prediabetes will
develop type 2 diabetes within five years.

 

You may have Prediabetes and be at risk for Type 2 Diabetes if you:

  • Are 45 years of age or older
  • Are overweight
  • Have a family history of Type 2 diabetes
  • Are physically active fewer than 3 times per week
  • Ever had diabetes while pregnant or gave birth to a baby that weighed more than 9 pounds
