CYNICALLY, A CONDITION BECOMES SERIOUS WHEN THERE ARE DRUGS TO TREAT IT: How Meaningful Is Prediabetes for Older Adults? A new study indicates that the condition might be less of a worry than once believed. “The researchers found that over several years, older people who were supposedly prediabetic were far more likely to have their blood sugar levels return to normal than to progress to diabetes. And they were no more likely to die during the follow-up period than their peers with normal blood sugar.”

Plus: “These findings mirrored a 2016 study pointing out that a popular online risk test created by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Diabetes Association, called doihaveprediabetes.org, would deem nearly everyone over 60 as prediabetic.”
