Pre-Diabetes: Predecessor to Diabetes
Dr. B. Swapna & Dr. K.V. Narasimha Raju
Prediabetes, typically defined as blood glucose concentrations higher than normal, but lower than diabetes thresholds, is a high-risk state for diabetes development. WHO use the term ‘Intermediate Hyperglycaemia’ and an International Expert Committee convened by the ADA prefers the “High-Risk State Of Developing Diabetes” to ‘Prediabetes’, owing to the ambiguity in clinical progression (Normalcy/Diabetes) of the later. The clinical manifestation of this pathophysiology is clearly elucidated in the explanations by Ayurvedic seers- Charakaacharya and Madhavakara, which are in sheer concordance with the prodromal symtoms of the proper disease, Diabetes.
