Health Tip: If You've Been Diagnosed With Pre-Diabetes

(HealthDay News) — Your doctor has told you that you have pre-diabetes; that your blood sugar is high, but not too high to be considered diabetic.

So what do you do to avoid developing the full-blown disease?

The American Council on Exercise recommends these lifestyle changes:

  • Commit to eating healthier, avoiding fad diets or products that guarantee quick and easy weight loss.
  • Set aside at least 150 minutes per week for exercise.
  • Set realistic, achievable weight-loss goals.
  • Eliminate barriers to your healthy lifestyle goals, and build a support system to help you stay on track.
  • Get regular medical checkups.
  • Stay positive!
