As of now, it is well-documented on the causes of type 2 diabetes, and how to treat/handle it.

The new recommendations though focus on the treatment of what is called pre-diabetes.

People can have pre-diabetes if their blood glucose is above normal, but not high enough to consider them a diabetic.

Those at risk of having above-normal glucose levels include people who are obese, have metabolic syndrome, or a family history of diabetes.

The recommendation is for people ot be treated for pre-diabetes, so that they can learn how to live a longer and healthier life, before waiting to take action later.
