Is a plant based diet or a vegetarian diet best for someone who has type 2 diabetes or prediabetes?
Not for everyone...: A vegan diet with fat-free (plus once in a while low-fat dairy) milk can be quite healthy. A vegan, ovo-vegetarian, lacto-vegetarian, and lacto-ovo-vegetarian are all types of vegetarians. Because some things (calcium, vit.D, vit.B12, protein) are harder to get if a vegetarian eats no egg or dairy products, a strict vegan has a much harder time finding all the nutrients he needs to stay healthy. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Diabetes is a disease of increased blood glucose levels. Glucose is a type of sugar that comes from the intake of food. Insulin is a type of hormone that removes the glucose from the blood and moves it into the cells to provide them with energy. There are two different types of diabetes: type 1 and type 2. Type 1 diabetes is when the body does not make any insulin. Therefore, glucose stays inside the blood and does not move into the cells. Type 2 diabetes, which is commonly associated with obesity, is when the body is either resistant to the effects of insulin or when the body does not produce enough insulin. Increased levels of glucose in the body causes severe damage to the ...Read more

If on a medication like metformin, be sure to let your doc know about diet changes asap. If on a station drug like lipitor, (atorvastatin) these increase risk for diabetes. Diet is biggest factor. Eat low carb. Avoid soda. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Had prediabetes. Is exercising 5 hours per week any better than 2.5 hours at preventing type 2 diabetes when both results in same # of fat lbs. Lost?
Manage, yes: Likely you can manage pre-diabetes if sufficient lifestyle changes are made (with 7-10% weight loss)...But if you have some degree of pancreatic dysfunction on top of Insulin resistance due to excess weight, the pancreatic function doesnt go back to normal...So lifelong healthy lifestyle changes are necessary to slow progression. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Certainly if you can lose weight, reduce your sugar intake and exercise, you can certainly reverse the pre-diabetes. It will require careful attention to your diet, but exercise and diet will be the most effective intervention you can do in the long run. Medication can only help so much--and not much if your diet is still poor. ...Read more
