Prevention of Diabetes
Having pre-diabetes does not mean you will inevitably develop diabetes. People with pre-diabetes can prevent diabetes from developing by managing their blood glucose. Most importantly, you need to lose an average of 5 to 10% of your current weight and get more physical exercise, which helps the body to use insulin to convert food into energy. Your doctor and/or a nutritionist or fitness specialist can help you make lifestyle changes to prevent diabetes and to improve your overall health and well-being.
