Prediabetes, sometimes referred to as impaired glucose tolerance (ICG) or impaired fasting glucose (IFG), is the early, reversible stage of type 2 diabetes. A complicated metabolic condition where blood sugar is higher than normal but not quite high enough for a diabetes diagnosis, prediabetes is both a serious health condition and a precursor to a dangerous disease. Though symptoms are often invisible, people with prediabetes are already incurring damage to the body normally associated with type 2 diabetes.
