Don’t Let Diabetes Sneak Up on You


In Colorado 1.3 million people have prediabetic conditions, where blood glucose levels are higher than normal, but not high enough to officially be diabetes, putting them at risk to develop type 2 diabetes and other serious health problems.

For early detection, the A1C test is used to provide information about a person’s average blood sugar level over a 3-month period. Testing is vital because prediabetes has no symptoms, but can have dramatic health impacts. The test doesn’t require fasting, making it convenient and easy for anyone to get tested. Know your number: 5.7-6.5 is borderline.
