Pre-Diabetic

If you have been diagnosed with pre-diabetes you have an opportunity to really improve your lifestyle:

  • Stopping sugar in diet
  • Reducing all food high in sugar – cake, biscuits, honey, fruit juices, fizzy drinks
  • Increasing your exercise substantially
  • losing weight

All of these factors can help reverse the pre-diabetic condition and stop you becoming diabetic

There is a local Diabetes Prevention Programme, which we are recommending you attend. To be referred to the programme please book a telephone appointment with your GP or Nurse Practitioner.

There is useful advice on NHS
