What is Pre-Diabetes? What can I do to avoid getting diabetes? WHAT DO I EAT WITH PRE-DIABETES?

Our blood glucose levels are usually kept within a normal range. Diabetes is when these levels go too high. Pre-diabetes is when blood glucose levels are not too high to be categorised as diabetes, but higher than normal. This is sometimes referred to as "borderline diabetes". Pre-diabetes is a stepping stone between normal blood glucose and developing diabetes.

Preventing Pre-Diabetes Progressing to Diabetes

Lifestyle factors (including weight loss, dietary intake and exercise) can be effective in preventing pre-diabetes developing into Type 2 Diabetes.

The foods that you eat can influence your risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes.
