Hi

If you are pre-diabetic, then it shouldn't be an issue. If you are eating a lot of watermelon(a high GI carb), then it might affect your weight, which will ultimately affect your glucose levels. Pre-diabetes can progress to diabetes, and then the watermelon would have more of an effect, and therefore you will need to keep an eye on your status
