Prediabetes refers to fasting plasma glucose of 100 to 125 mg/dl and/or HbA1C of 5.7% to 6.4%.
The prevalence of type 2 diabetes and prediabetes has been increasing worldwide because of modern lifestyle, unhealthy diet and lack of physical activity. The objective of the study is to know the prevalence of prediabetes among adults aged 18-50 years and to assess their anthropometric values in Karimnagar district, Telangana state, India.
