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.
