Why Should You Act?

Prediabetes Is a Growing Workforce Issue with Serious Health and Cost Consequences.  


One in six Indian adults has prediabetes, More than 9 in 10 don’t even know they have it. Prediabetes puts a person at increased risk for type 2 diabetes, heart attack, and stroke.

Without intervention, many people with prediabetes could develop type 2 diabetes within 5 years.
