By Dr. Priyanka Wali

Prediabetes can be reversed through the dietary changes outlined here. However, it is important to understand that if someone eats a low carbohydrate diet and reverses their prediabetes but then begins eating carbohydrates again in the future, the prediabetes will return. They must eat a low carbohydrate diet lifelong in order to reverse prediabetes and keep it permanently reversed.
