Are you at risk for type 2 diabetes? Take this test to find out

An estimated 86 million American adults have prediabetes, which means they have blood glucose (sugar) that’s higher than normal, but not high enough to be diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. There are no clear symptoms of prediabetes. You can have it and not know it. Prediabetes puts you at a higher risk of getting type 2 diabetes soon, or down the road.
