What is Prediabetes?

You may have been told you have prediabetes, but what does that really mean?

Prediabetes is when you have higher blood sugar levels than normal but they are not yet in the type 2 diabetic range for you to be diagnosed. You are however, at a higher risk of it developing into Type 2 Diabetes, especially if you don’t make any changes to your diet and lifestyle.

Prediabetes can sometimes be described as the ‘grey area’ that sits between diabetic blood sugar levels and normal levels. You may also hear it called borderline diabetes.

There are estimated to be around 7 million people in the UK with prediabetes and a lot will not know unless they have been told so by their doctor as it has very few symptoms.

What Can You Do?

prediabetes diet

The first thing you can do for yourself if you have prediabetes is get help. If you’re a self starter then join the Facebook group and get the information and support you need there. However, if you find it harder to make changes, which most of us do when we get older then on online group or even 121 programme may be better suited to you.

If you just want to make some simple changes to your own diet then these are the basic principles you want to focus on:

  • reduce the amount of refined carbohydrates you have and these include white bread and pasta
  • cut back on added sugars found in foods like cake, chocolate, fizzy drinks, fruit juice
  • cut back on saturated fats found in fatty meats, processed meats (sausages, bacon, burgers) and vegetable oils
  • increase protein from lean meat, fish, eggs or vegetable sources like tofu, pulses
  • increase fibre from vegetables and wholegrains
