What's the Treatment?

Treatment for prediabetes is simple:

  • Eat a healthy diet and lose weight. Losing 5% to 10% of your weight can make a huge difference.
  • Exercise. Choose something that you enjoy, like walking. Try to get at least 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week. You can start with less time and work your way up to a half hour if you need to. Check with your doctor before you do more than that.
  • Stop smoking.
  • Treat high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
