How to Prevent Prediabetes from Turning into Diabetes

Approximately 1 in 3 Americans have prediabetes, but only about 1 in 10 knows it. What works better at preventing it from turning into full-blown diabetes—drugs or diet and exercise?

I often hear the diet and exercise intervention described as 60% effective. That’s still nearly twice as effective as the drug, but that other study really showed it may be more like 100% in people who actually do it. So is diet and exercise 100% effective or only 60% effective? On a population scale, since so many people won’t actually do it, it may only be 60% effective. But on an individual level, if you want to know what are the chances you won’t get diabetes if you change your lifestyle, then the 100% answer is more accurate. Lifestyle interventions only work when we do them. Kale is only healthy if it actually gets into our mouth. It’s not healthy just sitting on the shelf.

    Why can a vegan be prediabetic? I am a vegan for 20 yr, and the last 10 years also gluten-free, practically sugar free (rarely a little raw cane sugar), mainly WFPB, and yet two A1C tests showed that I am prediabetic. What can I do not to develop diabetes?

After one day on the diet program my own blood glucose levels was down about Thirty five points, and by day Four it was lower about 60 points. It has been efficient for me personally. I am delighted that my blood sugar is much better now…
