Essential Do’s & Don’t To Avoid Developing Diabetes


Pre diabetes is a condition wherein your blood sugar level is higher than usual but is not high enough to be considered diabetes. Its symptoms are pretty much the same with full blown diabetes. The symptoms include unexplained weight gain or loss, frequent urination, extreme hunger or thirst, and blurred vision.

You can say that these two conditions are pretty much the same except that one is reversible while the other is not. Yes, pre diabetes is reversible. Want to know how? That’s possible because of a pre diabetes diet. In this article, you will learn about:

A. The risk factors of getting pre diabetes

B. Pre diabetes diet guidelines

Pre diabetes can be reversed by a pre diabetes diet. However, it may not work in all situations. But there’s nothing to fear. What you need to do now is to try your hardest because you still have a shot at having a healthy diabetes-free life.

Anyone can get pre-diabetes. However, the following conditions make a person more prone to getting this disease:

  • Family background or history
  • History of gestational diabetes
  • Leading a sedentary lifestyle
  • Obesity
  • Origins – Asian Americans, American Indians, Blacks, and Hispanics are more susceptible to getting pre diabetes
  • People 45 years old and above
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome

If you meet any of the conditions above, you better start watching your food intake and your health before it is too late. Start eating healthy foods instead of heavy rich foods to prevent pre-diabetes. But if you already have this condition, then you should start with your pre-diabetes diet. A diabetes diet is a diet that consists of a variety of food choices that are nourishing. Here are some guidelines:

Fruits are important. Those that have a high carbohydrate content can still be consumed provided that you eat small portions of them. Mangoes and oranges are good examples of the high-carb fruits. Low-carb fruits like blackberries and raspberries are perfect for your diet as you can eat them in large amounts.

  • Avoid processed foods as they contain saturated and trans fats, sugar, salt, and preservatives.
  • Stay away from fatty foods. They have more calories than carbohydrates and proteins.
  • Pay special attention to food labels. There are foods that are considered as “low-fat” or “sugar-free” but still contain large amounts of sugar in other forms. To be sure, compare their labels to similar products that are not low-fat.
  • The concept or ideas of a Type 2 diabetes diet can be applied to a pre-diabetes diet. I suggest visiting the link below to know more about this kind of diet.

A diabetic diet coupled with regular exercise can help stop your pre diabetes from progressing into Type 2 diabetes. Discipline yourself. Eat the right foods and exercise at least 30 minutes a day – three to four times a week to lose weight. Also consult your doctor before making any changes or taking medications.
