REMINDER TO ALL STUDENTS AND PARENTS: If a student is away the day of the test, they will be required to write the test the next day they are back. Prediabetes is a condition in which blood glucose (sugar) or A1C levels are higher than normal but not high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. Unfortunately, since there are typically no signs or symptoms, nine out of ten people with prediabetes don’t know they have it. Despite these alarming statistics and broad risk factors, research indicates that individuals can cut their risk of getting type 2 diabetes by more than half through lifestyle modifications.
Several research studies suggest that lifestyle measures are the best way to dodge the diabetes bullet. With just a few lifestyle adjustments, prediabetes can be reversible for some individuals, returning their blood glucose levels back to normal.
Carbohydrate: About 40 percent of calories should come from carbohydrates, including at least 20-35 grams of fiber. For the greatest benefit, aim for 60-90 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity on most days of the week. A serum-ascites albumin gradient (SAAG) can be obtained by simultaneous measurement of ascitic and serum-ascites albumin gradient.

Optional tests include measurement of total protein, glucose, lactate dehydrogenase, and amylase.

One of the most significant was The Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP), a major clinical research study, that found lifestyle modifications reduced the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 58% over a 3 year period, while the drug metformin reduced risk by 31% overall. The best sources include fish, skinless chicken or turkey, nonfat or low-fat dairy products, and legumes (beans and peas).
Physical activity is an important component to any healthy lifestyle, but those with prediabetes can especially benefit. If you are unable to start there, try to walk briskly for at least 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week.
If you are overweight, losing 5-10% of your total weight is beneficial for improving insulin sensitivity and regulating glucose control. These will be beneficial in selected circumstances and need not be obtained on a routine basis.
Those with prediabetes have an increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.

Not only does exercise help lower blood sugar levels, but it aids in weight loss which is another helpful factor in reducing your risk of developing diabetes.
Again, if that is too challenging to start, just try to be more active throughout the day, such as parking further from the store entrance or taking the stairs. Clinical Nutrition Guideline For Overweight and Obese Adults with Type 2 Diabetes, Prediabetes Or Those at High Risk For Developing Type 2 Diabetes. The Joslin Diabetes Center recommends achieving this goal by losing just one pound every one to two weeks through a reduction of 250 to 500 calories per day.
