Prediabetes Deserves More Attention: A Review

Diabetic Ketoacidosis in a Type 2 Diabetes Patient After Initiation of Over-the-Counter Weight Loss Medications: A Cautionary Tale

AbstractEvidence increasingly demonstrates that prediabetes is a toxic state, as well as a risk factor for diabetes, and is associated with pathophysiological changes in several tissues and organs. Unfortunately, use of available evidence-based treatments for prediabetes is low. This review seeks to explain why prediabetes must be viewed and treated as a serious pathological entity in its own right. It offers an overview of the pathophysiology and complications of prediabetes and describes how this condition can be reversed if all treatment avenues are deployed early in its course.© 2020 by the American Diabetes Association
