Pre-Diabetes is a condition where one has fasting blood sugar levels above normal (blood sugar
between 100-125 mg/dl) but the blood sugar levels are not high enough to diagnose diabetes
(fasting blood sugar above 126 mg/dl). Pre-Diabetes was previously called impaired glucose
tolerance or impaired fasting glucose. Those with Pre-Diabetes are at greater risk for
developing Type 2 Diabetes, but there are preventative measures including weight loss, increased
physical activity, and following a healthy meal plan.
The Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) has recently found
that those with Pre-Diabetes can make simple lifestyle changes to reduce risk
for diabetes later in life. The DPP found that subjects with Pre-Diabetes
experienced a 58% reduction of risk for Type 2 diabetes when they:
- lost a modest amount of weight (5-7% of their body weight),
- exercised at moderate intensity for an average of 30 minutes a day, five days per week (most chose to walk for exercise), and
- lowered their intake of fat and calories.
Those following the lifestyle changes were able to reduce their risk even
more so than those taking medications to lower blood sugar. These
preventative measures can "turn back the clock" and return elevated
blood sugar to normal levels.
GlucoMenu® offers a complete program for those with Pre-Diabetes. The GlucoMenu® program includes
complete menus (including meals & snacks), recipes, grocery lists, and professionally prepared nutrition
facts. Menus are calorie specific and calorie levels can be changed at anytime as weight
management goals change.
Here are actual comments from a GlucoMenu® member with Pre-Diabetes:
I am absolutely in love with this program. You have made my life so much easier. I love the fact
that I just have to purchase the stuff and prepare it... no writing down everything or trying to concoct a meal
myself... Keep up the good work and I am so pleased that I found your site.
