Diabetes is a disease in which blood glucose levels are above normal. When you have diabetes, your body either doesn’t make enough insulin or cannot use its own insulin as well as it should. Approximately 7.2% of Calvert County residents have been diagnosed with diabetes.
Prediabetes is a condition in which blood sugar is high, but not high enough to be type 2 diabetes.
