Unidos Contra la Diabetes is a community partnership dedicated to preventing diabetes in the Rio Grande Valley.

We work together with hospitals, community clinics, foundations, universities and churches to improve the lives of children and families in our community. Now, we are building on existing efforts and partnerships by coming together as a collective unit to magnify our impact on this important challenge.

WHAT

is prediabetes?

Before people develop type 2 diabetes, they almost always have “prediabetes” — blood glucose levels that are higher than normal but not yet high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes.

Doctors sometimes refer to prediabetes as impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) or impaired fasting glucose (IFG), depending on what test was used when it was detected. This condition puts you at a higher risk for developing type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
