The article discusses about prevention of diabetes. Close to 4.1 million New Yorkers are at high risk of developing diabetes, according to the New York State Department of Health. Those who are not sure of their diabetes risk should see their physicians to find out because, the Medical Society of the State of New York advises, patients who know they are at risk can make decisions and lifestyle changes that could prevent or delay the onset of diabetes. Before people develop type 2 diabetes, they usually have a condition called "pre-diabetes," with blood glucose levels that are higher than normal but not yet high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes.
