What are Diabetes and Prediabetes?

Diabetes is the condition in which the body does not properly process the food we eat, and turn it into glucose, or sugar, for our bodies to use for energy.

When you have diabetes, your body either doesn't make enough insulin or can't use its own insulin efficiently. This causes sugars to build up in your blood.

Prediabetes occurs when blood sugar levels are higher than normal, but not yet high enough to be identified as diabetes.

1 in 3

Approximately 1 in 3 Americans have Prediabetes, and 90% of people don't know they have it. [1]

25%

Over the short term (three to five years), about 25% of people with prediabetes develop type 2 diabetes. [2]

RECOGNIZING THE SYMPTOMS

Prediabetes does not usually demonstrate visible symptoms, but the following symptoms may suggest you've moved from prediabetes to diabetes.

Increased Thirst

Frequent Urination

Fatigue

Blurred Vision

Benefit to testing early

Progression from prediabetes to diabetes isn't inevitable. Eating healthy foods, incorporating physical activity in your daily routine and maintaining a healthy weight can help bring your blood sugar level back to normal.

Some individuals with diabetes can also make dietary changes that allow them to maintain normal sugar levels without medications.

You may have prediabetes or diabetes if a family member, especially a first-degree member, has been diagnosed with diabetes. [3]

OUR SCIENCE

How Do We Accurately Test?

BIOMARKERS AND OUR SCREENING METHODS

A diabetes-specific biomarker is a measurable indicator of your body's diabetes condition. Our test measures both Hemoglobin A1c (Hb-A1c) and Glucose in order to provide a comprehensive view into your potential prediabetes or diabetes condition.

OUR MISSION

Working to Find a Solution

Prediabetes can be identified, and can be controlled to prevent the onset of diabetes. However, once an individual has diabetes, there is no cure.

The best way to combat this condition is through early detection, allowing you to adjust your dietary and lifestyle habits in order to improve your overall health.
