Back to Pre-Diabetes.

*Females who reported being diagnosed with gestational pre-diabetes (N=84) were included in the YES group.
The pre-diabetes screening question is asked only of respondents who reported NOT having diabetes, or NOT having pre-diabetes
as reported in the Chronic Health Conditions Module.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to changes in the weighting methodology and other factors, results from 2015 are NOT comparable to 2010
and earlier years.

***The estimate was suppressed because it did not meet statistical reliability standards. See BRFSS 2015 Annual Results Technical Notes for more details.

^Use caution in interpreting cell sizes less than 50, % = Percentage, C.I.(95%) = Confidence Interval (at 95 percent probability level).
Percentages are weighted to population characteristics and therefore cannot be calculated exactly from the numbers in this table.
