pre-sick
 adj.— «The line between having a bad gene and having a bad disease is blurred. Even though you have no symptoms of illness, you may be treated by your health insurance company as though you do. In short, you are genetically “pre-sick.”» —“Ethics and Genetics” by Abigail Trafford Washington Post Apr. 16, 1996. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
