[IP] and now we have Pre-diabetes

Hi all

I saw this on WebMD this morning:
"the U.S. government has created a whole new condition for those at risk,
called "pre-diabetes." Health and Human Services Secretary Tommy G. Thompson
warns that nearly 16 million Americans may suffer from the condition that
sharply raises the risk for developing type 2 diabetes and increases the
risk of heart disease by 50%."

It then basically lists the conditions that the ADA is pushing that puts you
at risk for type II. I guess there is no more borderline diabetes.
