Posted on Nov 21, 2013 | 1 comment

A diagnosis of prediabetes means that your blood glucose levels are higher than normal – putting you at increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. The good news is there are simple things you can do to decrease that risk.

Chhavi Mehta, M.D., an internal medicine physician at the Palo Alto Medical Foundation, shares two tips you can do every day to help prevent diabetes or reverse its course.

“The key is to make small, simple changes – but make them permanent,” says Dr. Mehta. “Incorporate change that is sustainable in your everyday life so that you can live an improved, healthier lifestyle and not go back to your old ways.”
