U.S. residents on the cusp of developing Type 2 diabetes include about 28 percent of youths ages 12 to 19, according to research published in the journal JAMA Pediatrics.

They have a condition known as prediabetes, which means that the level of sugar (glucose) in their blood is higher than normal, but not high enough to be diagnosed as having full-fledged diabetes. The researchers found that the percentage of youths with prediabetes has more than doubled in recent years, going from just under 12 percent in 1999 to 28 percent by 2018.

Half of all healthy 45-year-olds will develop prediabetes
It was found to be more prevalent among boys than girls and among youths who are overweight or obese. Among adults, about 96 million (or more than 1 in 3) have prediabetes, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
