What is Pre-Diabetes? What can you do to avoid getting 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 can also be thought of as a stepping stone between normal blood glucose and developing diabetes.
Preventing Pre-Diabetes Progressing to Diabetes
Research has shown the modification of lifestyle factors (including weight loss, dietary intake and exercise) can be effective in preventing pre-diabetes developing into Type 2 Diabetes.
