What is a pre diabetic? Before people have type-2 diabetes, they usually have “pre-diabetes”. A pre diabetic has blood glucose levels that are high, but not high enough to be diagnosed with diabetes. Some studies have shown that long-term damage, such as damage to the heart or circulatory system may already be occurring in this early stage of diabetes.

Luckily, one study has shown that pre diabetic people have a chance to prevent type-2 diabetes from developing. This Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) study shows conclusively that a pre diabetic person can accomplish this feat just by making changes in their diet and being physically active for 30 minutes or more each day. In fact, the DPP study proved that 30 minutes of physical activity, coupled with a weight reduction of 5-10%, produces a 58% reduction in diabetes (Diabetes.org, 2011).
