Can I make prediabetes go away?

Can I make prediabetes go away?

Unlikely.: Prediabetes implies the eventual development of diabetes, which is usually genetically predetermined. So at best, aggressive management of prediabetes can delay the onset of diabetes. That being said, blood sugar measurements can be adequately controlled at times with diet and exercise alone, without medications.

Can you make prediabetes go away by just dieting?

Can you make prediabetes go away by just dieting?

Yes: Yes. Weight loss and cutting down on sweets can lower your blood sugar, and bring your sugar from pre-diabetic to normal range (although there's no guarantee). Since pre-diabetes often means that the pancreas (the organ which makes insulin) is wearing down, you will probably remain at risk for developing diabetes in the future. Daily exercise can help, too.

I have been diagnosed with prediabetes. What can I eat to go back to normal?

Prediabetes food: In general, eat more fruits and vegetables, non-starchy vegetables (broccoli, grean beans), whole grains over processed foods, dry beans, fish 2x/week, lean meats (things end with "loin"), non-fat dairy and as always, lots and lots of water.

Hav prediabetes & need to lose ~42lbs to go from 45% fat to 25% (fit 31 year old), is losing 0.5 lbs/week too slow? If so, what rate should I aim for?

Hav prediabetes & need to lose ~42lbs to go from 45% fat to 25% (fit 31 year old), is losing 0.5 lbs/week too slow? If so, what rate should I aim for?

Just right: Losing 0.5#/wk is an excellent goal, as it is attainable and sustainable. After all you need to learn how to eat and exercise and lose weight for the rest of your life, so how fast you do it isn't important. What's important is that you attain your goal and keep it there. Good luck.

Can prediabetes be reversed?

Can prediabetes be reversed?

Yes: The diabetes prevention program (dpp- please look at their website for information) has shown that through proper diet and exercise (5-7% weight loss, 30 min of moderate activity 5 days per week) can prevent progression from pre-diabetes to diabetes. I have seen many patients able to bring their blood sugar from prediabetic range back to normal with proper diet/exercise routine.

My FBS result is 6.20. How do I reverse prediabetes?

My FBS result is 6.20. How do I reverse prediabetes?

Improve diet: A consistent diet low in carbohydrates and filled with natural foods /whole foods is recommended. Generally, for prediabetes, there is insulin resistance (caused by being overweight) when there is a high glucagon signal. If you work toward avoiding liquid sugars (juices, sodas, milk) and limit/avoid bread, rice, pasta, cereal, it will usually allow weight loss. Keep eating natural fats as well.
