Technically, you are also "pre-dead" (just like the rest of us humans)---which is an absolutely fatal condition, but hardly scary.
Pre-diabetes just means you have to make some changes in your diet and exercise regimen.
At the "pre-diabetic" stage, that is no big deal.
Don't freak out! . Think of it as a second chance to get it right. You can change your diet and your lifestyle to have a healthy and happy life. Trust me, there are worse things in life.
