Diabetes is deadly, but medicine and technology can detect that you're becoming diabetic before the condition is full-blown, and Baltimore County is offering courses to help people reverse their fate.
According to national data, 1 in 3 American adults has prediabetes.
Prediabetes means a person's blood sugar level is higher than normal, but not high enough to be diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.
People with prediabetes are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes, which increases the risk for serious health problems such as stroke and heart disease.
The National Diabetes Prevention Program in Baltimore County (NDPP) is a grant-funded program offered by the Baltimore County Department of Health to Baltimore County residents who have prediabetes or are at risk for type 2 diabetes:
