People with prediabetes are encouraged to make lifestyle choices that will help get their blood sugar levels to a normal level, or, at the very least, keep the levels from rising. Making the right lifestyle choices is key in preventing prediabetes from becoming diabetes.
Maintaining a healthy weight, losing weight if you’re overweight, exercising, and eating a healthy, balanced diet can help keep prediabetes from becoming diabetes.
Some doctors may recommend oral medications to treat prediabetes.
