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.

See Technical Notes for counties in Local Health Director, State and AHEC regions.

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.
