Diabetes, is a condition, wherein the glucose (a type of sugar) levels in the blood are too high. If these high glucose levels are untreated, they can damage multiple organs of the body. When the sugar levels are well controlled, a person with diabetes can lead a healthy and fulfilling life with minimal complications.
Pre-diabetes is a condition in which blood glucose levels are higher than normal, though not high enough to be called type 2 diabetes. It is a warning sign to let you know that you could have diabetes.
