Prediabetes is a warning sign that something must change in order to stay healthy. If, after reading our list, you find that you’re experiencing several of the warning symptoms of prediabetes, don’t panic. With proper attention, it is still reversible. The first step is to make an appointment with your doctor to be assessed. He or she can provide helpful advice on diet and other preventative steps.
We recommend laying out a series of small, sustainable changes that you can build upon. Start by drinking more water every day and taking the stairs instead of the elevator whenever you can. Then cut out sodas, or fast food meals, or your sugary bedtime snack. Find a workout buddy. Experiment with new fruits and vegetables.
It’s not easy, but renewing your commitment to yourself and your health can turn the tide and send prediabetes packing.
