Can my doctor detect whether or not I will have type 2 diabetes?

ANSWER

If you have prediabetes, you're more likely to have diabetes later on. But that doesn't have to happen! You can still turn things around if you have prediabetes. Ask your doctor what changes you can make to stop prediabetes from becoming diabetes.
