Prediabetes is a condition where people have a blood glucose level slightly higher than normal, but not yet considered diabetes. Type 2 Diabetes can be prevented! Research shows that people with prediabetes and those at high risk could significantly reduce their risk of diabetes by making modest lifestyle changeslose 5-7% body weight and be physically active at least 150 minutes a week (at least 5 days, 30 minutes of moderate physical activity). Just making these changes for life, goes a long way to lower risk of diabetes. Some other risk factors for diabetes are: being over overweight or obese, not physically active, older than 45 years, having family history or a history of gestational diabetes.
