What causes Prediabetes?

You have prediabetes if your body is starting to cease using insulin as well as it should. In other words, your body is beginning to develop insulin resistance.

The rise in blood glucose levels caused by your body’s resistance to insulin leads to the development of prediabetes. If the process is not stopped and allowed to continue, it will progress to type 2 diabetes.
