What is the usual treatment for prediabetes?

By Dr. Priyanka Wali

Some providers may prescribe Metformin to patients who suffer from prediabetes for some time and are unable to make the dietary changes to reverse their prediabetes, yet are at high risk for developing diabetes.

Many patients who receive a diagnosis of prediabetes will also be told to lose weight with diet and exercise. Weight loss also plays a role in reversing prediabetes; however, the mechanism by which prediabetes is reversed is related to lowering insulin levels, and lowering insulin levels can help reduce weight.

Prediabetes can be treated with a low carbohydrate diet. Learn more about nutrition for prediabetes in this article, Reversing Diabetes 101 by Dr. Sarah Hallberg.
