You just know that you have pre-diabetes, however, studies from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) show that pre-diabetic patients are 15-30% at risk of developing type 2 diabetes. The good news is that prevention and regular screening can lower that risk, or can help detecting type 2 diabetes early to manage the condition.
