1. High Blood Pressure
People with high blood pressure are at an increased risk of prediabetes because hypertension forces the heart to work harder to move blood around the body. This in turn makes it more difficult for the body to eliminate excess sugar from the bloodstream.
Hypertension and prediabetes are conditions that exacerbate each other, and studies have shown that having both greatly increases your risk of heart failure.
Unfortunately, both prediabetes and high blood pressure are largely asymptomatic at first. If you know that you have hypertension, you should get serious about preventing prediabetes right away.
