Symptoms of Pre-Diabetes

It has been found that almost one in four adults over the age of 25 has either diabetes or its precursor pre-diabetes.

Symptoms of pre-diabetesPre-diabetes develops when blood glucose levels (blood sugar levels) are higher than normal but not high enough to be called diabetes.

People with pre-diabetes have a high risk of developing type 2 diabetes and heart and circulation problems.

  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • Gestational diabetes (diabetes during pregnancy)
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome

Certain groups of people have a higher risk of developing Pre-diabetes and Diabetes:

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people
  • Middle Eastern people
  • Asian people
  • Indian people
  • Pacific Islander people

Often there are no symptoms of prediabetes. However the classic symptoms of type 2 diabetes may be present. These include:

  • Increased thirst
