Primary care physicians at UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester, MA, and in the surrounding communities are your resource for managing your prediabetes, a condition that means you are at increased risk for diabetes. Prediabetes often occurs with insulin resistance and can lead to type 2 diabetes.
The factors for prediabetes risk are the same as type 2 diabetes risk factors, such as being overweight, inactivity, age and race. If you have prediabetes you may not show symptoms of the disease but you should watch for common signs of type 2 diabetes, including increased thirst, urination, hunger and blurred vision.
Because you're a key partner with us in improving your health and well-being, we personalize care for your prediabetes to fit your unique health and lifestyle needs. Our resources include evaluation of your current treatment routines, in-depth diabetes education, consultations for nutrition, and behavioral modification to help you adopt healthier habits. Our providers also work closely with the UMass Memorial Weight Center to offer you a personalized approach to weight loss.
