I heard that it usually takes a year.
It entirely depends on how the patient manages their own health. If they start eating right, and getting exercise, they may never develop full-blown diabetes. If they don’t make any changes, it could be just a few months.
as stated above it is completely dependent on each person and their individual circumstances such as pre-disposition, overall heath and diet.
You could remain borderline always or it could progress into diabetes with months or years.
Yes I agree again with the above it is completely dependent on each person and their individual circumstances such as pre-disposition, overall health and diet.
Some people who are pre-diabetic develop a condition called Acanthosis Nigricans. This is when they are Severely Insulin Resistant and the insulin they make seeps / spills over into the skin of the neck, inner elbows, armpits, groins etc – This is the bodies mechanism of delaying becoming type II diabetic. Eventually the body cant hold out and the patient becomes type II diabetic. This though is preventable or at least delayed if the patient controls their intake of carbohydrates and exercises increasing their bodies sensitivity to insulin….
Pre-diabetes is insulin resistance. With today’s accepted high carbohydrate diet it is projected that by the year 2025 there will be over 300 million diabetics planet wide. It is just not the diet our bodies evolved with.
Carbohydrates are simply long chains of sugar molecules hooked end-to-end. When a person eats carbohydrates their normal digestive process breaks up these chains into the individual sugar molecules, and they pass right through the intestinal wall into the bloodstream, and load up the bloodstream with sugar.
If this happened every once in a while it would not be a problem. But as diets today are so high in carbohydrates, people have a constant high level of sugar pouring into their bloodstream year after year!
This requires their body to continuously produce high levels of insulin to keep that sugar level down. (Insulin’s job is to push sugar out of the bloodstream into the cells where it is used for energy.)
Eventually the cells in their body becomes insensitive to the effects of the insulin (insulin resistance). To handle this problem of insulin resistance their body begins to produce even higher levels of insulin. This continues until their pancreas reaches the maximum amount of insulin it can produce, and when the insulin resistance increases again, their blood sugar begins to rise out of control.
The result is type 2 diabetes! Type 2 diabetes is actually an extreme case of insulin resistance.
Certain nutrients will help resensitize the cells of your body to the insulin your body is making, which will help bring down your blood sugar levels. But because of the insulin resistance of your body, any amount of starchy or high carb foods you eat, convert to sugar, and that sugar builds up in your blood stream and remains there. It’s like trying to put out a fire with one hand and pouring oil on it with the other hand.
Staying on a low carb diet for 90 days will help.

There IS NO “pre diabetes”. that is a term some doctors use to keep from scarring their patients, because when the patient hears that they are diabetic, they often run out seeking “magic cures” and fail to return to the doctor. Thus, they refuse the necessary treatments, and end up getting sicker and sicker.
If your blood sugars a consistently high, then you ARE diabetic, and you need treatment NOW.
DO NOT MESS WITH THIS DISEASE! If you believe that you somehow have a “grace period” to get well again, your are sadly — possibly fatally — mistaken.
Work with your doctor toward an AGGRESSIVE treatment, including strict dietary control, increased exercise, and oral medications NOW to prevent the need for insulin injections, amputation, kidney transplants, or a long and lonely life in a nursing home later.
most of the time the development of the disease is multifactoral: genetics, life style, diet, etc.
Since your just a pre diabetic individual, you may prevent the contraction of the disease by eating healthy food and doing lots of excercises. This may sound very common sense but it’s really the only solution.

I find it VERY HELPFUL
The doctor told my husband he must have had type 2 diabetes “for years” before the symptons started to show, given there’s no genetic cause, the glucose index was close to 300 and he had lost over 12 lbs within 3 months. What’s your guess?
