If you have pre diabetes, blood sugar that’s elevated but not high enough to be diabetes, your chance of developing full-blown diabetes can be as high as 20 percent per year.
To reduce that risk, focus on a healthy, calorie-controlled eating plan (ask for a referral to a registered dietitian) plus 30 minutes of daily exercise, such as brisk walking. Research has found that this is more effective than medication. Support can help, so look for Diabetes Prevention Program classes in your area. And talk with your doctor about how often you should be monitored.
