Back to Pre-Diabetes.

*Females who reported being diagnosed with gestational pre-diabetes (N=114) were included in the YES group.
The pre-diabetes screening question is asked only of respondents who reported NOT havin g diabetes, or NOT having pre-diabetes
if reported in the Diabetes Core question.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to changes in the weighting methodology and other factors, results from 2011 are NOT comparable to previous years.

***The estimate was suppressed because it did not meet statistical reliability standards. See BRFSS 2011 Annual Results Technical Notes for more details.
