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.

Research has found that optimists experience less stress, have stronger relationships, and show more of the perseverance needed to succeed at work and in life.

On average, between 5 and 20 percent of the U.S. population will get the flu during the annual cold and flu season — which typically runs from November to April. Each year, between 3,000 and 49,000 people in the United States die from flu-related issues. Cold and flu viruses are often passed between people and along surfaces in the workplace. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), people are most contagious the first two or three days after catching a cold and for about five days after being infected with the flu — even before symptoms develop.
