If you're among the 79 million Americans with prediabetes - higher-than-healthy blood sugar levels that pave the way for diabetes and other health concerns - there's sweet and sour news.
The sour news?
New evidence says high levels of blood sugar double age-related brain shrinkage. That translates into shrinkage of memory and thinking skills.
The sweet news?
It's easier than ever to say "no thanks" to prediabetes. Small upgrades in your life (a little weight loss and a little activity) work best. They slash your risk of progressing to diabetes by at least 58%, drugs manage only a 31% improvement.
