Abstract

Prediabetes is a commonly encountered condition that bears a significant risk of progression to diabetes. While lifestyle modification remains the treatment of choice, drug therapy is emerging as a therapeutic option to prevent its progression to diabetes and associated complications. This paper proposes a comprehensive triage system to identify persons with prediabetes who may benefit from preventive pharmacotherapy.
