In a nutshell:

What does pre-diabetes mean?
Prediabetes means you have higher than normal blood sugar levels.
Unmanaged prediabetes can lead to Type 2 diabetes.
Prediabetes doesn’t always have symptoms, so it’s important to get blood sugar levels tested, especially if you’re at high risk.

Frequent urination
Too much sugar in your blood is extremely taxing on the kidneys, which will work to process that sugar.
When the kidneys aren’t up to the job, much of that glucose is eliminated from the body through your urine.
This process also flushes out valuable hydrating fluids from your body, often leaving people with diabetes peeing frequently as well as dehydrated.

How to reverse it
Diet and blood sugar monitoring – You need to be keenly aware of what you eat while keeping a close eye on blood sugar levels, ensuring they don’t get too high or too low.
Exercise – Regular exercise can increase insulin sensitivity in your cells and promote the absorption of glucose for energy.
Insulin injections – Depending on the type and severity of diabetes, you may need regular insulin injections or a pump.

2. Extreme thirst
Thirst and having to urinate too often are both caused by too much sugar (glucose) in your blood.
The kidneys need to make more urine to help pass the extra sugar from your body.
You will likely have to urinate more and have a higher volume of urine.
This uses up more of the water in your body.
Water is even pulled from your tissues to help get rid of the extra sugar.
This can make you feel very thirsty because you’re losing lots of water.

How to reverse it
Medications to control blood sugar – Different types of diabetes call for different treatments.
Weightloss – If you’re obese (very overweight) and have prediabetic type 2 signs, you might consider weight loss surgery.
It can help you lose a lot of weight, get to a normal blood sugar level, and possibly ditch your diabetes medicine.

3. Frequent hunger
While everyone has cravings from time to time, and certainly everyone can feel hungry, the experience of frequent hunger is separate from normal hunger cues.
Frequent hunger is a prediabetic symptom that is not the same thing as binge eating.
It makes a person feel constantly hungry whether or not they eat or how much they eat.
It does not have to have a mental or emotional component; it can simply be the physical sensation of hunger.

How to reverse it
Check your blood sugar – If it is low, eat quick sugar carbohydrates to bring it up.
Eat high-fiber, low-carbohydrate foods.
Drink plenty of water.
Eat a high-protein breakfast.
Keep food interesting with a variety of tastes, herbs, and spices.
Distract yourself while having a craving – go on a walk, take a shower, do an activity you enjoy.
Manage your stress levels and watch for signs of mental health struggles such as depression or anxiety, which can lead to emotional eating.
Keep healthy snacks easily accessible.

4. Nerve pain or numbness
Nerve pain or numbness can affect different bodily functions.
This can affect the peripheral nervous system, and symptoms commonly appear in the arms, hands, legs, and feet.

How to reverse it
Maintaining a healthy weight – excess weight and reduced insulin sensitivity, which increases the risk of high blood sugar levels and, in time, nerve damage.

Avoiding or quitting smoking
Smoking damages the walls of the arteries, causing fat to build up, narrowing blood vessels, and impeding circulation.
Poor circulation contributes to neuropathy.
Smoking also increases the risk of cardiovascular disease, which can lead to a stroke or heart attack.
In addition, it may worsen insulin resistance.

Wounds are healing slowly
Although cuts, grazes, scratches and blisters can occur anywhere on the body, the feet are one of the most common places of injury.
