ONE OF THE MOST : Specific symptoms of pre diabetes starts occuring years before... Abdominal weight gain. Central excess adipose tissue, high triglycerides, low good cholesterol levels, mild elevation of liver tests. Fatty liver on ultrasound. However, not everyone develops diabetes, even with all of the above signs, findings and symptoms. Around 80-87% though, quite a high number, don't you think?
